Manufacturing

Our service offerings for the Manufacturing industry

India is fast emerging as a global manufacturing hub, with all the requisite skills in product, process and capital engineering on account of its long manufacturing history and continuous upgradation of its higher education system. The Make in India initiative of the Indian government has further aided the growth of this industry with the Government receiving investment proposals of over US$ 16.56 bn in the recent past through this initiative.

India's cheap, skilled manpower is attracting a number of companies, spanning diverse industries, making India a global manufacturing powerhouse. India with its vast design skills has attracted a lot of outsourcing technological orders.

India's manufacturing sector is expected to touch US$ 1 trillion by 2025 and reach about 30 per cent of the country’s GDP.

Opportunities and Challenges:

The manufacturing sector is large and diverse, but most sector players face similar risks – increased costs for oil, natural gas, steel and copper are squeezing margins, unless offset by pricing and surcharge increases. Since clients are reluctant to invest in new equipments, the aftermarket service gains greater significance. To strengthen core product lines or widen geographical reach, companies are seeking acquisition targets, while others are looking to divest underperforming units. State and central taxes, often managed across multiple locations, are increasingly complex and under continuous review. Calls for corporate governance and accountability have driven new regulations around internal controls and management certifications. Further, manufacturing companies always strive to figure out how to get the most out of their Information Technology and Human Resource Capital Investments.

While the challenges are many, the industry also offers significant growth opportunities considering the future outlook.
