Aerospace (Civil) - A Report from UKTI - June 2007

Aerospace Sector Advisory Group to UKTI acknowledged India as a priority market for the UK.
The Indian Aerospace (Civil) sector has for years been overshadowed by the Indian Aerospace (Defence) sector. The private Aerospace sector overshadowed by the Government-owned Aerospace sector. This imbalance is being corrected, but expectations needs to be managed with regards to the speed in which opportunities available to UK companies can translate in to business. 
For many UK companies, the relationship with the Indian Aerospace Defence sector is long and deep. For example, Rolls Royce and BAE Systems have been in India for over 70 years. India’s military budget is estimated to be worth annually $21bn, about 2.2 percent of India’s GDP.

Airports - June 2007

Adequate infrastructure is an essential factor in the economic growth of any country. India is the 7th largest country in the world and the second largest in Asia with a landmass of 3.29 million square km and a population of over one billion. The need for adequate transport infrastructure is therefore vital. The Indian government has attached a high priority to building and investing in the transport infrastructure sector, particularly in airports.

Overview of the Automotive Component Sector in India - April 2007

The world's top car makers turn to India for the nuts and bolts of their vehicles. Riding this success, and capitalizing on the spiralling demand of domestic auto companies, the Indian automobile components industry has emerged as one of India's fastest growing manufacturing sectors, and a globally competitive one.
The Indian auto component industry is likely to almost double to € 14 billion by 2009 and reach about € 29.94 billion by 2014. Its globally competitive auto component manufacturing sector has been much in demand with global auto majors.

Digging deep for a smooth sail - March 2007

Ports in India are now waking up to ‘deep’ realities. As they scramble to attract more cargo and attempt to increase revenues, many ports have realised the importance of deeper channels and berths, which helps them accommodate bigger ships and achieve economies of scale. The Union Budget 2007, unveiled by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on February 28, announced vital measures to help ports take on dredging projects. “The exemption of import duty on dredgers is a major step due to the extremely high requirement for capital for dredging in the country, especially the Sethusamudram project,” says A K Bhalla, Joint Secretary (Ports), Union Shipping Ministry. “The import duty was a huge cost for us. The exemption will give a fillip to both Indian and foreign companies to undertake dredging projects.”

Aerospace (Civil) Sector Report - June 2006

Based on the research for this report, the main area of opportunities for UK companies in the Indian market exist in the following areas:
Supply of components to the main domestic producer (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL)) either in collaboration with an existing suppliers or through an agent. This area of opportunity received a tremendous boast on 4 August 2005, when HAL announced it would set a target to outsource US$ 150 million of orders to the domestic private sector. This represents 35 per cent of HAL's manufacturing capacity and includes outsourcing components, spares, systems for aircraft, engines, ground handling equipment and accessories. HAL tenders can be found on
www.hal-india.com
Supply of raw materials (sheet metals and forgings). All aviation grade materials are imported to India, as there is currently one domestic producer (Mishra Dhatu Nigam (MIDHANI), Hyderabad, producer of special alloys for the Defence sector). This opportunity is linked to the one above, as HAL also announced that it would stop buying materials for private partners in any new project.
Indian economy and aerospace sector is growing at an unprecedented rate. However, despite all the hype and noise, Indian aerospace spend, even after a decade, would be a very small percentage (2%) of global aerospace turnover. Therefore, the most preferred approach for UK Aerospace Industry (UKAI) companies, is to not remain a distant seller, but form strategic alliances combining UK's inventiveness with India's knowledge pool and low cost platform to sell competitively into global aerospace market and raise share of UKAI global aerospace market above 15%.
India has been identified as low cost sourcing destination for low-batch precision machined parts & assemblies. Cost-lowering needs of the world aerospace programs are forcing Indian participation to grow from USD 20 million to over USD 2 billion by 2015. However, with India's current level of preparedness and through its organic growth pattern, Indian industry can only meet one-fourth of this demand, at the most. An opportunity exists for UKAI to fill this gap.
India will buy more than 500 jet airliners by 2010. However, the infrastructure to support such a growth does not exist. Hence, an investment of USD 7 billion has been planned by 2010 for development of Airports & Airport Services. Also, to maintain the aircraft fleets acquired, the cumulative value of MRO services during the same period will be USD 2 billion. UKAI has immediate opportunities to sell their products & services in these areas

Airports Sector Report - June 2006

Adequate infrastructure is an essential factor in the economic growth of any country. India is the 7th largest country in the world and the second largest in Asia with a landmass of 3.29 million square km and a population of over one billion. The need for adequate transport infrastructure is therefore vital. The Indian government has attached a high priority to building and investing in the transport infrastructure sector, particularly in airports.
The importance of multi-modal transport for passengers and commodities can not be over estimated in India given the sheer size of the country and the existing varied network. The needs of an increasingly urban population, coupled with significant increases in industrial, trade and commercial demands have placed immense strain on the existing airport infrastructure.
Primary responsibility for development and management of airports rests with the Central/State governments. Traditionally characterised by public sector management and investment, the airport sector is now increasingly opening up to the private sector, as the GoI recognises that substantial investment is needed if India is to realise its ambitious growth plans. Private sector participation is an integral part of these plans.

Automotive Sector Report - March 2006

The Indian passenger car industry is expected to grow to 3 million by year 2015 with Multi Utility Vehicles constituting 20 per cent of this market. Two wheelers are expected to grow to over 13 million units a year. There are 453 active collaboration in the component industry, 45 of these involve UK companies.
India needs assistance in developing its component industry, framing emission control and other regulations, with design and engineering and in developing its infrastructure - in fact, the total package required to develop and sustain a modern automotive industry. UK companies have much to offer, and can potentially be at the forefront of these developments during the current 'window of opportunity'.

Automotive Sector Report - January 2006

Market Overview
The automotive sector comprises the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and auto component manufacturers. Globally, the automotive industry is recognised as a key component and driver of national economy. The global automotive industry is in the midst of a major structural transformation –
Among OEMs, global conglomerates are emerging, driven by mergers and alliances among manufacturers (e.g.: GM/Fiat/ Suzuki; Ford/Volvo/Mazda).
Component manufacturers, or suppliers, are getting Tierised, with Tier 1 suppliers taking on the role of component aggregation and module supply/assembly, and component suppliers being relegated to Tiers 2 or 3.
Relationships between OEMs and suppliers (especially Tier 1s) are becoming increasingly collaborative.

India’s Car Exports: One Million By 2010 - February 2005

Currently, Tata’s passenger vehicle exports account for 17 per cent ofproduction. If by 2010, the 30 per cent target is met, and Tata Motors increases its capacity by at least 25-30 per cent, which, given the current growth projections of the 2010 domestic market is a very likely proposition, then the company could be producing any thing between 275,000 and 300,000 passenger vehicles by then.
