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:

Business Professional Services (education & training, insurance, tariffs)
Transport Technologies (aviation, automotive, infrastructure)
Medical Technologies (biotech & pharmaceuticals; healthcare)
Tourism and Leisure (heritage & restoration, travel and tourism)
Food and Drink
Information Communication Technologies (telecom)
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.

Financial Sector Review - February 2006

The financial services industry in India is still emerging from a long period of government control. The sector has been identified by IFSL as one of its top priority markets. The main focus of attention for the British High Commission in India is to encourage the Indian government to bring down barriers to entry for overseas companies.
Whilst the private banking sector has benefited most to date, much still needs to be done to allow free entry to overseas insurance and accountancy services and in making a start on the legal services market, which remains tightly closed to overseas law firms. As the market opens up, opportunities for new financial services products can be expected to grow. But the time, effort and resources required to develop the market will make it suitable only for larger companies.

Training and Education - August 2005

For a culture that traditionally values education, it is only natural that India should become an education hub. An average middle-class household in India spends 15 to 20 per cent of its income on education/ careers of children. In fact, education takes the second position after food in the spend hierarchy, with clothing and housing following it.

There's Life In India - February 2005

There is a belief that that Smart Cards are not universal in appeal and have not really taken off in the US. Smart Cards are used in pay phones, launderettes and parking meters in the US, but that's about it. One of the reasons for this may be that the US may have such large investments in credit card systems that there is no impetus to change.

Financial Services, Financing Dreams: Home Loans Gather Critical Mass - May 2004

Five years ago, the word mela in India meant a village fair, a place where artisans displayed and sold their wares to villages. Today, India's consumer banks and property developers in urban and suburban India use the same word to sell and finance dreams. In the past two years, home loan melas have been sponsored by a dozen Indian banks and have been held in every major Indian city.

Such melas are targeting the fastest growing middle class in the world around 400 million plus - who are now opting to buy apartments rather than pay rent. Unlike a cautious outlook on loans a few years ago, today's consumer has a far more positive and open outlook about taking a loan.
