Opportunity in India - June 2007

India is an obvious "potential" market for any UK company considering exports. But it is important that it is seen as a very sophisticated market. It has a middle class of 300 million people who want access to all the products common to the UK High Street.  They may not yet have the purchasing power to buy at UK prices, but they do have the capability to enter into partnerships to produce locally at local prices. 

This report highlights on the opportunities and expressed need in Indian Economy for all these trade clusters:

Information Communication Technologies (telecom)
Transport Technologies (aviation, automotive, infrastructure)
Medical Technologies (biotech & pharmaceuticals; healthcare)
Business Professional Services (education & training, insurance, tariffs
Tourism and Leisure (heritage & restoration, travel and tourism)
Food and Drink
Screen, Image and Sound (media)
The above highlights serve to illustrate the fact that India is ready to do business in almost every sector. It is a market, which is set to continuing growing for at least another 30 years as a result of its own demography.

Country report on the Indian electronics sector - May 2007

Electronics and IT hardware manufacturing in India grew by 15.6% in 2004-05 against an 8.5% growth in overall manufacturing. Total hardware production was Rs 56,000 crore (around $12.73 billion) in 2005-06 registering an annual growth of around 12%. But this growth rate may not be adequate to meet the increasing demand-supply gap and opportunities that lie ahead. Despite being amongst India's fastest growing industry sectors, integration with the global manufacturing chain has been sluggish.

Communications Sector Review From UKTI - August 2006

The Indian telecommunication network with more than 130mn telephone connections, is the fifth largest in the world and is the second largest among the emerging economies of Asia. Today it is the fastest growing market in the world and represents unique opportunities for UK companies in the stagnant global scenario. Tele-density, which was languishing at 2% in 1999, has shown an impressive jump to 12% by end of 2005 and is set to increase to 20% in the next five years beating the govt target by three years.
Private operators have made mobile telephony the fastest growing (YOY growth of > 70 %.) in India. With more than 85 million users (both CDMA and GSM), wireless is the principal growth engine of the Indian telecom industry and has already surpassed fixed line subscribers in early 2005. Intense competition between the four main private groups - Bharti, Hutch, Tata and Reliance and state incumbents-BSNL and MTNL has resultant in a significant drop in tariffs. There has been a drop of almost 74% in cell phone charges, 70% in ILD calls and 25% in NLD charges, resulted in a boom time for consumers. India now offers cheapest mobile tariffs in the world. The next revolution is expected to be in the area of Broadband(>256 KBPS download) where the government expects a YOY growth of more than 100 %. With the reduction in bandwidth prices and computer hardware prices brought below the magical Rs 10,000 ( 120) the set target looks very achievable. India today also offers the cheapest Internet connection in the world.

Chip Designing Arrives in India - June 2004

When Texas Instruments became the first multinational technology company to set up a design base in India, there were sniggers all around. Socialist government, red tape, poor infrastructure, the usual negatives were trotted out by sceptics.
