The automotive industry in India has come a long way from its nascent state at the time of
India’s independence in 1947 to its present day dynamic form. As compared to the production of mere 4,000 vehicles in 1950, the production of the industry crossed the historic landmark of 10 million vehicles in 2006. Today, the industry produces a wide range of automobiles and auto-components catering to both the domestic as well as foreign markets. The development of the industry has been shaped by the demand on the one hand and the government interventions on the other; the influence of the latter being considerable.
The evolution of India’s automotive industry is identified to have occurred in four phases. In the first (1947-1965) and second phase (1966-1979), the important policies identified were related to protection, indigenisation and regulation of the industry. On the one hand, these policies helped India to build an indigenous automotive industry, while on the other it led to unsatisfactory industry performance. In the third phase (1980-1990), the…...

Wikipedia : Primary categories : Sports and luxury end cars – Aston Martin, Bentley, Daimler, Jaguar, Rolls-Royce etc Volume Car Makers – Nissan, Honda, Toyota etc Commercial Manufacturers – Ford, Leyland, London Taxis International etc Back in 1950 , UK was the second largest car manufacturer and exporter after USA. Subsequently over some decades slowed down and was then ranked on the 12th spot with immense competition from nations like France, Germany and Japan\. Late 80’s many of the British marques were bought over by foreign companies 2. The latest UK car manufacturing figures showed that 1,286,287 motors were produced in the first 11 months of the year, a rise of 5.4 per cent compared to last year with sales also up by an impressive 9.9 per cent. Of the five major European car markets – Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain – only Britain has seen growth in the new car market this year. The rate of growth depends principally on when the car manufacturers pull back on the cheap credit that is currently pump-priming the market. If this cheap credit remains available throughout next year then there is an increasing risk of oversupply of new cars which could raise anxiety regarding a potential shock fall in used car residual values.’ Political Economic Payment Protection insurance payouts Cheap......

The Outlook of the World Automobile Industry

...Advanced Industries The road to 2020 and beyond: What’s driving the global automotive industry? The road to 2020 and beyond What’s driving the global automotive industry? 3 Preface For the last century, the car culture has spread over the entire globe. As much as any other product, the car has shaped not only the global economy but how billions of people live. In Europe alone, the automotive industry accounts for roughly 12 million jobs (including related jobs); in the US, more than 8 million; and in Japan, more than 5 million.1 For all of its staying power, though, the industry has also seen constant change. Today’s cars – with their drive-by-wire electric systems or drive assistants – would have astonished Henry Ford, Ferdinand Porsche, and Kiichiro Toyoda. They would also have been taken aback by the increasingly demanding environmental requirements and the rise of new players, particularly in China. So what’s next? This in-depth research offers a perspective on where the automotive industry is headed. It is based on many discussions and interviews with the top management of leading automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and an analysis of data from the top 17 (by sales) global OEMs, which comprise 80 percent of global sales. This work was designed to answer the most crucial questions: ƒ ƒ ƒ ƒ How are the industry and the market evolving? What are the future challenges and opportunities? How can OEMs benefit from these new challenges and......

...Mahindra & Mahindra’s Jeep were only 3 major Car producers in India and these companies dominated Car Industry from 1940s to mid 80s. * In 1955 Royal Enfield from UK was the first company to export motorcycle to India. This happened due to the requirement of rough, strong motorcycle by Indian Army. Bullet and Rajdoot were 2 dominating motorcycles in India before liberalization. Among Scooters Bajaj Chetak and LML Vespa were popular. Over the last 20 years, Indian Auto industry has got the global business opportunities to grow and at the same time there have been threats from giant global competitors. * From the above figure we can prominently observe that Globalization has attracted many foreign brands to India, but we are lagging in producing indigenous vehicles. We have only 3 or 4 major companies producing indigenous cars. (Mahindra, HM, Tata Motors, Force Motors). Role of Policy Reforms over last 20 years: * Decrease in import restrictions and reduced tariff levels. * Smooth licensing and approval process to encourage FDI in automobile sector. * Robust legal system and stable foreign exchange regime. FDI and cross border trade has accelerated since 1991 in many industries including automobile sector. The WTO has been facilitating trade and investment liberalization. Availability of skilled and low cost labour has made foreign countries to invest in emerging countries like India. Government has promoted NATRIP (National Automotive......

Indian Automobile Industry

...INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION The automobile industry is one of the largest industries in India as in many other countries. It plays a major role in the growth of economy in India. The automobile industry in India is the ninth largest in the world with an annual production of over 2.3 million units in 2008. The industry comprises automobiles and auto component sectors, which encompass passenger cars, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, tractors, commercial vehicles, multi- utility vehicles and components. Today, the Indian automobile industry is the world s largest motorcycle manufacturer, the second largest two-wheeler and tractor manufacturer, the fifth largest commercial vehicle manufacturer and the fourth largest car maker in Asia. Apart from serving the domestic market, the Indian auto sector has also become a sourcing hub for the global auto giants. In 2009, India emerged as Asia's fourth largest exporter of automobiles, behind Japan, South Korea and Thailand. The Government of India has introduced an ambitious project of setting up world-class automotive testing and R&D infrastructure to place India in the USD 6 trillion global automotive business. This book details the current status and factors influencing the growth of the Indian automobile industry; its future prospects and the success stories of some automobile giants in India.

Automobile Industry in India

...INTRODUCTION: The Indian two wheeler market has a size of over Rs 100,000 million. The Indian two wheeler segment contributes the largest volumes amongst all the segments in automobile industry. Though the segment can be broadly categorized into 3 sub-segments viz; scooters, motorcycles and mopeds; some categories introduced in the market are a combination of two or more segments e.g. scooterettes and step thru’s. The market primarily comprises five players in the two wheeler segment with most of the companies having foreign collaborations with well-known Japanese firms earlier. But most of the companies are now planning 100% subsidiaries in India. In the last four to five years, the two-wheeler market has witnessed a marked shift towards motorcycles at the expense of scooters. In the rural areas, consumers have come to prefer sturdier bikes to withstand the bad road conditions. In the process the share of motorcycle segment has grown from 48% to 58%, the share of scooters declined drastically from 33% to 25%, while that of mopeds declined by 2% from 19% to 17% during the year 2000-01. The Euro emission norms led the existing players in the two stroke segment to install catalytic converters. All the new models are now being replaced by 4-stroke motorcycles. Excise duty on motorcycles has been reduced resulting in price reduction, which has aided in propelling the demand for motorcycles. Fierce competition has also forced players to cut prices in certain models.......

...Did you know that all the companies in America have something in common? They are all operating in an environment of forces that create both threats and opportunities for their businesses. These environmental forces, which make up something known as the "macroenvironment", include: demographic, economic, natural, technology, political and cultural. Since the macroenvironment is generally uncontrollable, businesses often must find ways to adapt to the constant changes. For example, over the past few years, the auto industry has been affected tremendously by changes in the technology, natural, and political environments and therefore forced to change their marketing strategies. The Technology Environment Kotler identifies the technology environment as the most powerful force affecting and shaping the future (83). The environment consists of: industrial productivity, new manufacturing processes, new products and services of competitors, new products and services of supply chain partners, and any new technology that could impact a company (Environmental Scanning). Technology has been responsible for developments such as the internet, computers, laser surgery, organ transplants, antibiotics and more (Kotler, 83). While advances in technologies are creating new markets and opportunities they are also replacing older technologies. Companies that do not keep up with these changes will find their products or services become obsolete and not up-to-date with the consumer buying......

The Automobile Industry

...I chose the automobile industry because I feel that it is one of the largest and most innovative industries. The automobile industry is forever growing and forever changing. The history of the automobile begins as early as 1769, with the creation of steam engine automobiles capable of human transport. In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas led to the modern gasoline- or petrol-fueled internal combustion engine. The early history of the automobile can be divided into a number of eras, based on the prevalent method of automotive propulsion during that time. Ferdinand Verbiest, a member of a Jesuit mission in China, built the first steam-powered vehicle around 1672. By 1784, William Murdoch had built a working model of a steam carriage in Redruth, and in 1801 Richard Trevithick was running a full-sized vehicle on the road in Camborne. In Russia in the 1780s, Ivan Kulibin started working on a human pedalled carriage with a steam engine. He finished working on it in 1791.The first automobile patent in the United States was granted to Oliver Evans in 1789. In 1805, Evans demonstrated his first successful self-propelled vehicle, which not only was the first automobile in the USA, but was also the first amphibious vehicle. His steam-powered vehicle was able to travel on the road, on land, and via a paddle wheel in the water. What some people define as the first "real" automobile was produced by Amédée Bollée in 1873, who built......

...The automobile industry is a giant, serving both public and private sectors of the economy and consuming enumerable amounts of goods used in production, accounting for numerous additional jobs. The complexity of the industry has grown over the years along with the complexity of the products it produces. New means of advertising and other market strategies further complicate this already hugely intricate industry. On top of this, the industry continues to evolve on an almost yearly basis with the introduction of new “essential standard features” that one would not have even considered putting in a car five years earlier. Despite it’s relatively recent rapid growth in the past 100 years, the automobile industry, had a somewhat slower start. Once the industry was set in motion it unquestionably continued to grow and develop amazing machines that provide a great service to society and a great profit to its manufactures, but the first 130 years the automobile industry took to establish itself as an important part of the economy are just as important to fully understand the industry. The first self-propelled street vehicle was invented by the French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot, in 1769. It was a military tractor used by the French army to haul artillery. It was destroyed later that same year in what is considered the first automobile accident; it crashed into a wall.2 The engine, like most of its time, was steam powered. Steam was the main source of......

...not required significant technological activity. The share of engineers working in the assembly industry in Brazil in the industry total employment is an indicator supporting such argument. In the 1980s, it was less than 1% (Quadros, 1993). By the early 2000s, the share had quadrupled. Major changes in the Brazilian automotive market and industry occurred in the early 1990s. These changes implied a significant redefinition in the local PD strategies of car assemblers. Two elements influenced these changes: trade liberalisation and government policies specifically focused on the automobile sector. 2.2 Trade liberalisation and growth in local demand The process of trade and investment liberalisation in the Brazilian economy started in the early 1990s, following the inauguration of the government of the first elected President after military rule. Brazilian assemblers were not prepared to face the competition of imported vehicles. The sudden explosion in vehicle imports intensified domestic competition and showed the need to update products and improve productivity and quality standards in local car and truck manufacturing. This has triggered an escalation in investment by assemblers. Total investment in the assembly industry in Brazil rose from US$5.4 billion, in the 1980s, to US$16.6 billion, in the 1990s, according to the Brazilian Automotive Industry Association (ANFAVEA). This figure comprises reinvestment by incumbents and inward......
