The Ultimate Revelation Of Automotive Industry In India

With a better lifestyle, the Indian automotive market also boomed making it the 5th largest automotive industry in the world. The increase in the demand of people for a better version of the car also gave way to healthy competition that may have resulted in some of the unique newer technologies now.

The increasing industry also made the international brands that much more attracted to India and resulted in the new brand launches we see every year.

The Indian automotive industry ranges from wanting to own a small hatchback for small families, a luxury sedan for the higher class and muvs for larger families. Cars like SUVs and smaller trucks are especially popular in the rural area for business and ruggedness. The Indian car market gives way for lower-priced hatchbacks to one of the most luxurious cars we know.

History of Indian Automotive Industry:

The current state of the Indian automotive market was not that easy to achieve. With the population boom, availability of jobs and a better lifestyle made the impossible dream come true for the Indian automotive market.  

The first car that ever sported on the Indian roads was in 1897 in Calcutta that was owned by an English man named Mr Foster. A year later 4 cars entered the Bombay (now known as Mumbai) roads one of which was owned by Jamshedji Tata. Even though the number of cars increased every year the cars were imported only till the early 1940s.

Indian automotive industry started existing after Hindustan motors were established in 1942. Another Mumbai based brand ‘premier’ was then established who has the ‘Premier Rio’ existing in the current market.  

Mahindra and Mahindra that was established in 1945 began with assembling jeep. After independence in 1947, the government and private sector helped boom the automotive industry in India following a restriction on imports of fully build-up cars in 1953.

In 1952 a new tariff commission was appointed to kick start the growth of local Indian automation industry. According to the plan, it passed a capacity limit was placed for every manufacturing plant, increasing if need be. The new policies that were launched with the recommendation excluded the companies that only imported parts for assembling here as well as the companies with no Indian partner.

That lead companies like general motors, ford and roots club which had assembly only plants to move out of India. The ‘license raj’ impacted the Indian automotive industry in a negative way causing the demand to exceed supply causing a month-long wait for cars and two-wheelers. The categorised companies were classified as passenger cars, utility and light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, scooters, mopeds and motorcycles.

Even though by 1970s the automotive industries saw some growth, the cars still were a long shot for the middle class. Most of the personal vehicles were made for the rich and jeep was used in some rural regions and in government facilities and commercial vehicles. The only vehicle that was available for the middle-class budget was the motorcycle.

At the same time to help the green revolution, Russian and eastern bloc imports were brought in to meet the demand of tractors. The demand for tractors, commercial vehicles and scooters lead to an acceptable growth in this industry while the car was still considered a luxury item.

In that period diesel engine was not widely available and cars like jeep, commercial vehicles had petrol engines. The 1970s was still dominated by Hindustan and premier who sold outdated products of limited number though by 1980 a lot of competitors began entering the Indian market.

In 1980s brands like Suzuki, Toyota, Hyundai entered the Indian automotive industry. Out of which Maruti Suzuki was the first to achieve success. In 1991 India began liberalising the automobile market leading the foreign companies to have joint ventures with the existing Indian companies. By 2000 the Indian automotive industry had 12 well-established companies most of which were the sub-branches of a global brand.

Exports of the Indian market were slow at first since most Indian models were outdated the Indian automobile initially faced some loss while exporting. But to encourage the Indian automakers Indian government levies import tax of 125% on foreign import cars. The tax for import of components is as low as 10% this gave the carmakers an opportunity to assemble the car in the country.

Automotive Industry Exports:

By 2009, Indian exports grew and reached $4.5 billion especially to united kingdom followed by Italy, Germany, Netherlands and South Africa. India, as usual, pays more attention to the fuel efficiency and manufacturing low-cost vehicles with strong engineering that helped the foreign as well as Indian brands establish in the country and export large quantities of vehicles.

The South Korean carmaker, Hyundai Motors alone exported 240,000 cars that were made in India. Nissan exporting 250,000 vehicles manufactured in its India plant by 2011.  Similarly, US automobile company, General Motors exported about 50,000 cars manufactured in India by 2011.
