Why invest in the Manufacturing Sector now?

7 reasons why manufacturing is the place to be for the Indian investor

  • Strong GDP growth rate
    We expect the push by the government to stimulate the investment cycle which will drive a cyclical economic recovery with average GDP growth of 7% over the next 5 years.
  • Improving Domestic Macros
    On the domestic front we have seen significant improvement in major macro parameters – inflation, interest rates, CAD, fiscal deficit and foreign currency reserves providing comfort to investors about the medium to long-term investment trend in Indian equities.
  • Election 2014 - The Game Changer
    India's first majority government in 30 years has led to a surge in investor optimism and confidence over the future of India's economy and equity markets.
  • Thrust on Manufacturing
    The Modi-led BJP government's priority is the revival of the manufacturing sector. As per the National Manufacturing Policy (NMP), it plans to ramp up the share of manufacturing in the country's GDP from 15% to 25% and create 100 million jobs by 2022 in the sector.
  • Easing interest rate environment
    With interest rates expected to come down, manufacturing companies are likely to have a major leg up for profitability and growth.
  • Direct play on growth
    Markets sense and factor growth ahead of time. As growth becomes visible on the ground level, the sector does better than all other major themes. This is because manufacturing is a direct play on growth whereas others derived themes on growth
  • FII and FDI flows
    India has received $312 Billion in FDI flows over the past10 years (FY2004-FY2014). India continues to enjoy a major share in fund flows and portfolio flows are expected to double in coming periods. Countries like U.S, China and Japan have committed $180 Billion to India over the next 3 years.

Factors that will make Indian Manufacturing a reality

  • India to account for 25% of the addition in the global working age population. India to add ~1 million people every month to its working age population in the next decade.
  • Large Local and export opportunity across sectors.
  • India's low cost of manufacturing compared to the rest of the world.
  • Newly elected majority government led by Narendra Modi is expected to lead policy changes, large scale project approval and job creation.

The Indian Manufacturing Advantage

  • Low-cost labour force
    India's manufacturing wages are among the lowest worldwide, averaging $1.5 per hour.
  • Demographic dividend
    Around 64% of India's population is expected to be in the age bracket of 15–59 years by 2025 making India a destination for English speaking, young, skilled and cost-efficient workforce.
  • Growing domestic market
    India's consumer spending is set to grow 4x by 2020 making it a nation with rapid economic growth providing a large domestic market for manufacturers.
  • Abundant Natural resources
    India's vast reservoirs from coal to bauxite, gas to iron ore, have made it self-reliant in terms of terms of resources needed to become a manufacturing powerhouse.
  • Easing interest rate environment
    With interest rates expected to come down, manufacturing companies are likely to have a major leg up for profitability and growth.
  • Favourable currency
    The rupee's falling value against the dollar makes Indian exports increasingly competitive.
