Manufacturing Companies in India: Over the past few years, a manufacturing revolution has been underway in the Indian economy, driven by the increasing presence of multinational companies, increased operations by domestic companies and an expanding domestic market. The manufacturing sector has been averaging 9% growth over the past few years, and a record 12.3% last year.
As a result, India is quickly emerging as a global manufacturing powerhouse. India has all the necessary skills in product, process and capital engineering, thanks to its long manufacturing history and higher education system.

India’s vast domestic market and availability of low-cost labor with advanced technical skills has been instrumental in attracting the ever expanding number of multinational companies who are setting up their manufacturing base in the country.
