The Wave of Change in Automobile Industry
India earns its reputation as the 4th largest automobile market in the world. And the strides it has taken to reach this milestone is an inspiration in itself. In 1990s, foreign automobile sharks in both two and four wheeler segment entered India to ride on the tides of liberalization. And, over a period of time, as the localization needs of these original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) increased, a robust component manufacturing base started emerging in India. To meet global standards, the Indian component manufacturers started evolving and became competitive on the international platform.
Today, a lot of Indian component manufacturers are Tier 1 suppliers of major players such as Bosch. This means the parts made here in India are actually installed in cars like Mercedes, Audi, Mazda, Jaguar, and Renault-Nissan. And that is not it.
