  • India has over the years established itself as one of the world’s fastest growing economies and has become a key player in numerous trade verticals globally.
  • India continues to grow as 2nd fastest growing economy in the world, 3rd largest in terms of purchasing power parity and the 10th most industrialized country in the world.
  • Moreover, the process of reforms and the consequent deregulation, liberalization and globalization of the economy has unleashed the enormous growth potential of the country. This has made India as a preferred destination for domestic and foreign investments.
  • India is one of the few markets in the world which offer high prospects for growth and earning potential in practically all areas of business. There exists immense investment opportunities both at the National and State Level.
  • The growth in its population and higher standard of living are driving forward in particular the subcontinent’s construction and automobile sector, while the demand for consumer goods is also rising.
  • The automotive sector is one of the core industries of the Indian economy. The delicensing of the sector in 1991 and the subsequent opening up of 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) through the automatic route marked the beginning of a new era for the Indian automotive industry. Since then almost all the global major automobile players have set up their facilities in India.
  • Indian incomes are likely to grow three-fold over the next two decades and India will become the world's fifth-largest consumer market by 2025.
  • The real estate sector in India has observed a quite revolution over the past decade thanks to India’s booming economy which has led to an increased demand for both commercial and residential space. According to a study by a leading industry chamber, the Indian real estate sector is expected to grow at 30 per cent over the next decade, attracting foreign investments worth US$ 30 billion.
  • India is among the fastest growing pharmaceutical markets in the world. The country's pharmaceutical market is expected to maintain a healthy growth rate of 12-13 per cent and expected to cross the US$ 10 billion mark by 2010 and reach approximately, US$ 12 to 13 billion by 2012.
  • In all these areas the material glass plays a superior role, for example as a modern construction material in architecture, as packaging material for foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products, as vehicle glass or the basis for displays and communication cables in the electronics industry.
