India is the third largest automaker in the world and it has been getting better and better. The country has been growing at a steady pace for several years now, but now it looks like it might surpass the US soon enough! It seems like India is getting more and more into the car manufacturing game.
After a few disappointing debuts from domestic manufacturers in the past few years, we’re starting to see some real momentum. It’s also heartening to see that this trend is only set to continue. In fact, it seems like India is going to be one of the main drivers of this industry as soon as it becomes cheaper and easier to start up and operate a factory here.
This means Indian car companies will have no problem challenging the likes of Germany and Japan soon in terms of global production quantities. Read on to know more about these exciting developments!
Mainland China led the way with a total of 24.8 million unit sales in CY 2022 with a growth of 3.60 percent.
It is interesting to note that the Indian vehicle market has seen a positive improvement in the last few years. In 2018, it grew by 5.11 percent; in CY 2019 it grew by 7 percent.
The growth of 23.40 percent in 2022 and Mainland China led the way with a total of 24.8 million unit sales in CY 2022 with a growth of 3.60 percent over the previous year’s figures. After Corona, there has been a positive improvement in the Indian vehicle market

Following Mainland China, the United States is in the second position with 13.8 million units sold with a degrowth of 8.30 percent in CY 2022. This segment has recovered from a dip seen due to the financial crisis and became one of the fastest-growing markets after China in recent years due to rising vehicle ownership rates among consumers and increasing penetration levels in key regions like California, Texas, etc., which are already home to some of the world’s largest car manufacturers like Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Nissan Motor Company Ltd (NISSAN), etc.
India’s manufacturing capabilities
The automotive industry in India is expected to grow at a steady pace over the next decade. This will be driven by an increase in the production of commercial vehicles, two-wheelers, and passenger cars. While commercial vehicles are expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9%, two-wheelers will show an increase of 8.9% and passenger cars growing at a CAGR of 10.4%.
These are impressive numbers, considering that India is a relatively new player in the global automotive market. Also, it must be kept in mind that the Indian automotive industry is primarily focused on the domestic market. Exports from the sector account for only 3% of total production, which is expected to change in the coming years. The Indian government is expected to focus on increasing the country’s competitiveness in the global automotive market.
After Corona, there has been a positive improvement in the Indian vehicle market.
The Indian vehicle market has grown at a CAGR of 23.40 percent since CY 2016. This can be attributed to the fact that there is a huge demand for passenger vehicles in India and the country’s economy is growing fast.
As a result, new car sales have increased significantly over time with each passing year. Among the top 5 countries in the world, India has recorded the highest growth. With a massive growth of 23.40 percent, India is poised to grow further which will be evident in either CY 2023 or CY 2024. In comparison to other countries like Japan and China, India’s growth rate was much higher than these two countries during this period as well: China grew by 3.60%.
However, despite all these positive trends which suggest that we might see even higher growth rates going forward (between 2-3%), it’s still too early to predict how much further we will climb before reaching our peak point in 2030 or 2032 depending on how quickly our population increases between now and then!
The traditional hierarchy of US, Europe, Japan and China can be shaken up soon enough!
India is poised to grow further. The traditional hierarchy of the US, Europe, Japan, and China can be shaken up soon enough!
China will take over as the largest automaker in the world but India has recorded the highest growth rate in recent years. This has led to a significant increase in demand for Indian cars as well as a drop in prices which have made them more affordable than ever before.
Challenges faced by Indian automakers
Besides the usual challenges faced by every automotive manufacturer, Indian automakers also face a few unique problems. One of the most challenging tasks for Indian automakers is to break into the global market.
Indian companies are known more for their low-cost products than high-end ones, which makes it difficult for them to expand into developed markets. Another challenge faced by Indian automakers is the high cost of labor in the country. While this is a problem faced by every automotive manufacturer in the country, it is expected to get worse as the labor shortage in the country increases.
Our Take: India automaker
India will continue to be the third-largest automaker in the coming years. The growth in GDP and population will provide the impetus for more and more vehicles to be sold in this country. It is expected that there will be a growth of at least 5 percent annually in the next five years.
