Industry Overview
Since the first car rolled out on the streets of Mumbai (then Bombay) in 1898, the Automobile Industry of India has come a long way. During its early stages the auto industry was overlooked by the then Government and the policies were also not favorable. The liberalization policy and various tax reliefs by the Govt. of India in recent years has made remarkable impacts on Indian Automobile Industry. Indian auto industry, which is currently growing at the pace of around 18 % per annum, has become a hot destination for global auto players like Volvo, General Motors and ford.

A well developed transportation system plays a key role in the development of an economy, and India is no exception to it. With the growth of transportation system the Automotive Industry of India is also growing at rapid speed, occupying an important place on the ‘canvas’ of the Indian economy. Today Indian automotive industry is fully capable of producing various kinds of vehicles and can be divided into 03 broad categories : Cars, twowheelers and heavy vehicles.

History of Automobile Industry

3 The automobile as we know it was not invented in a single day by a single inventor. The history of the automobile reflects an evolution that took place worldwide. It is estimated that over 100,000 patents created the modern automobile. However, we can point to the many firsts that occurred along the way. Starting with the first theoretical plans for a motor vehicle that had been drawn up by both Leonardo Da Vinci and Isaac Newton. In 1769, the very first self-propelled road vehicle was a military tractor invented by French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot (1725 - 1804). Cugnot used a steam engine to power his vehicle, built under his instructions at the Paris Arsenal by mechanic Brezin. Nicolas Cugnot was the inventor of the first automobile. The automotive industry has certain trends it has to follow, just like fashion designers and musical composers. In times of recession and decreasing sales there is less room to take chances and manufacturers are prone to follow the common pattern as a safer bet rather than releasing a controversial product or idea that might or might not be successful. However throughout the automotive industry's history, great innovators have "boldly gone where no man has gone before" to set new trends which have dynamically altered the industry as a whole. 1942 Hindustan Motors Ltd incorporated and their first vehicle was made in 1950. In 1944 Premier Automobiles Ltd incorporated and in 1947 their first vehicle was produced. In 1947 the Government of Bombay accepted a scheme of Bajaj Auto to replace the cycle rickshaw by the auto and assembly started in a couple of years under a license from Piaggio. Manufacturing Program for the auto and scooter was submitted in 1953 to the Tariff Commission and approved by the Government in 1959. In 1983 Maruti Udyog Ltd was started in collaboration with Suzuki, a Japanese firm. In 1983-84 Bajaj Tempo Ltd. entered into a collaboration with Daimler-Benz of Germany for manufacture of LCVs. In 1997 National Highway Policy has been announced which will have a positive impact on the Automobile Industry The Indian Automobile market in general and Passenger Cars in particular have witnessed liberalization. Many multinationals like Daewoo, Peugeot, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota, Volvo and Fiat entered the market. In late 90’s TELCO entered passenger car segment launching Tata Indica. In 2001 Indica V2 launched - 2nd generation Indica.Launch of the Tata Safari EX Tata Motors completes acquisition of Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Indica V2 becomes India's number one car in its segment.

the Xylo has sold over 15000 models. Some players are working towards development of efficient production systems that control the entire production process with high precision and accuracy. one of the core sectors. for which indigenization is highly important. The sector seems to be optimistic of posting strong sales in the next couple of years in view of a reasonable surge in demand. The product becomes dearer if it is manufactured using imported parts. All . Also in early 2008. Mahindra & Mahindra launched the Mahindra Xylo in January 2009. TATA NANO at Rs 1. The super mini was unveiled during the Auto Expo 2008 exhibition in Pragati Maidan.

Players are strategizing to consolidate their position and gradually increase market penetration with the launch of new models.000. The government is increasing the research and development (R&D) fund for the automobile industry. IT in the automobile sector plays a crucial role. Ford Motors announced its plans to setup a plant in India with an annual capacity of 250.4 In 2008 Tata Motors reached an agreement with Ford to purchase their Jaguar and Land Rover operation for US$ 21 billion.000 cars for US$500 million.00. Such systems working on real time operating systems allow efficient control of different parts of manufacturing and production. in partnership with the Bavarian Auto Group. huge investment is envisaged to remain competitive through cost advantage. has undergone metamorphosis with the advent of new business and manufacturing practices in the light of liberalization and globalization. and as of June 2009. Since the sector is price driven. The cars will be manufactured both for the Indian market and for export. Tata Motors Launches the least expensive production car in the world. New Delhi In September 2009. targeting different segments. It is essential to leverage skills of different engineering disciplines to build these kinds of integrated systems.

Features of the Automobile Industry The structure of the auto market has been changing at a faster pace along with the global changes in the Industry. Along with the entry of multinational auto companies.

7 The impact of India’s initiatives in economic liberalization and globalization (post 1991) is most apparent in the automotive sector. As India's transport network is developing at a fast pace. due to increased demand in the aftermarket. Previously. Indian automotive market was characterized by weak air pollution regulations. For instant and rapid growth in economy. a well-developed and well-networked transportation system is essential. low labor cost of maintenance and the psyche of Indian consumer to delay the discarding of the old vehicle reduced the scrap rate. Two wheelers generate the highest volumes and are more popular in rural and semi urban markets primarily due to lower income levels and poor road conditions. these could be classified as entry-level vehicles. Also. In addition. All these factors resulted in prolonged operational existence of vehicle on Indian roads. Excise duty reduction on passenger vehicles helped to reduce the ultimate price to the customer. The benefit of this practice is the comparatively higher revenues for automotive component suppliers. Indian Automobile Industry is growing too. Therefore. Automotive industry is a key driver of economic growth contributing around four to five percent to the Indian GDP. Introduction of reforms and entry of international companies has intensified competition in the Indian automotive sector. Thus the role of Automobile Industry is very essential in Indian economy. This will reduce the average life span of vehicles on road and the overall impact would be reduced per vehicle parts consumption. But recent pronouncement of GOI to prohibit polluting vehicles in the National Capital Region (NCR) is likely to force the old polluting vehicles off road. Indian Automobile Industry includes the manufacturing of . Good performance of the economy has led to higher all round growth leading to high GDP growth of 8%. the Automobile industry has strong backward and forward linkages and hence provides employment to a large section of the population. Good performance of the economy has led to higher all round growth leading to high GDP growth Automobile Industry of India A Nations economy is well known from its transport system.

Role of Government in Automobile Industry The government is making efforts to overcome the constraints at their research centers for automobile industry. unleaded petrol was also introduced in metropolitan cities from 1995. To meet these emerging challenges of newer emission norms Indian automobile industry has already braced itself up with new investment and fresh technological induction. the pollution in the cities is continuously increasing. the government could not muster enough courage to push the mighty automobile industry and enforce it.wheelers from But ultimately. It should also work in tandem with the government to make India a world leader in this area. For meeting these norms. According to a study. which enabled fitments of catalytic convertors on new petrol driven vehicles. Indian automobile industry is also consistently trying to meet the emerging challenges of environmental pollution and better safety standard. India can also learn from countries like Japan that are already using these technologies for a wide number of applications.12 The Ministry of Heavy Industries has released the Automotive Plan 2006-2016. automobile exhaust contributes more than 60% of the atmospheric pollution in metropolitan cities. the pollution in the cities is ever increasing. . The Indian auto industry should launch programmes for market development and a wider acceptance of alternative energy-driven vehicles in India. The government seems most keen to hand over a huge replacement market on a platter to the automobile industry without ensuring that manufacturers take responsibility of the emission performance of the vehicles they produce for its useful life. Government initiated controls by notifying emission standards from the year 1992 which were further tightened under the Motor Vehicle Act.

It also is making an effort able to enlist the support of multilateral aid institutions to provide part of the funding for this project. The Institute will be managed by the participating automobile industries and will train skilled category of auto workers. which create pollution. which promises tremendous environmentimprovement benefits for the vehicle.

Technical factors
India is harmonizing its Emission Norms for Four Wheelers with the European Regulation and has adopted Euro III, equivalent norms in 11 Metropolitan Cities from Apr 1 2005. For

16 Two Wheelers, which constitutes 70% of the vehicle population unique Indian emission norms, which are one of the tightest in the world have been adopted. The Fuel Quality plays a very important role in meeting the stringent emission regulation. The fuel specifications of Gasoline and Diesel have been aligned with the Corresponding European Fuel Specifications for meeting the Euro II, Euro III and Euro IV emission norms. The use of alternative fuels has been promoted in India both for energy security and emission reduction Delhi and Mumbai have more than 100,000 commercial vehicles running on CNG fuel. Delhi has the largest number of CNG commercial vehicles running anywhere in the World. India is planning to introduce Biodiesel; Ethanol Gasoline blends in a phased manner and has drawn up a road map for the same. The Indian auto Industry is working with the authorities to facilitate for introduction of the alternative fuels. India has also setup a task force for preparing the Hydrogen road map. The use of LPG has also been introduced as an auto fuel and the oil industry has drawn up plans for setting up of Auto LPG dispensing station in major cities. The latest technology is being adopted by the companies and is being launched in India as well. One of the latest technologies is the Hybrid Engines which are launched by Honda motors in India. A lot of new safety measures are now taken into consideration before the car or any other motor vehicle is launched to ensure its safety and reliability.

SOCIAL FACTORS
The Automotive Research Association of India ( ARAI ) has been playing a crucial role in assuring safe, less polluting and more efficient vehicles. Reducing pollution helps creating a better and healthy environment for the society. 85% of the cars in India are financed. The banks are giving finance options easily helping the people who cannot afford to buy themselves. Low interest rates translating to low financing and acquisition costs hence greater affordability.

which is primarily a small car .with the capability of giving leader Maruti a run for its money in the total volume stakes though Hyundai in India currently sells just about a quarter of the numbers that Maruti does. Unlike Suzuki. And with easy consumer financing available in the market. and the only one -.17 The new technology of Hybrid engines launched in India (Honda CIVIC) is very much safe and helps the environment making it better for the social community. Different players in Automobile industry Hyundai: Can The Dream Run Continue? Hyundai has become the undisputed number two in the Indian auto market. This technology is coming worldwide and is also available in Canada now. New measures are being taken to make the automobiles less polluting. And when it launched mid-size Accent some time later. This well help in reducing the exploitation of atmosphere. The Santro was an instant winner from the day it was introduced in the Indian market because it offered the optimum mix of space and technology in the small car market. Hyundai did not have to work too hard to persuade even entry-level car buyers to go for the Santro instead of the Maruti 800. it doesn't have any other small car in its armoury. Better atmosphere gives better life.even rivals admit -. Hyundai proved that it could get its value-price equation consistently right across different segments That apart. at a highly competitive price. Hyundai got everything right because it got the value-price-technology equation almost perfectly right from day one. the big worry for Hyundai is that other than the Santro (the Atos in Korea).

The Telco formula of pushing the biggest small car with a rugged diesel engine has been a major hit in the semiurban and rural markets.. .6 billion to develop. In the passenger car segment. And if Ford does take over Daewoo Motors. When the Indica hit the market. Telco knows it has to take on its rivals in the mainstream markets as well. The Indica was riddled with quality problems. the consensus opinion was that Telco had goofed up again.000 from the current 120. But Telco is also the weakest player in the small car market -.18 specialist. But in the long run. which again focuses on a small niche. Telco has already introduced the premium Safari. Hyundai can only introduce bigger cars in the Indian market either from its own product range. or those of Kia Motors. Other than the automotive sector. the company has the well known ‘Ambassador’ and ‘Contessa’ models. the company has diversified into earth moving equipments and power products. It is a smart strategy as it avoids taking any of the big guns head on. it could be the first casualty in this round of the car battles. It has recently tied with Mitsubishi of Japan for manufacturing the ‘Lancer’ range of cars. It lacks the sheer money power and product muscle to keep fighting the Fords and GMs in any market. Hyundai is looking a bit vulnerable now because globally it is a minnow in the car market. It is ramping up capacity to 160. It also has a small presence in the multi-utility vehicle and the heavy commercial vehicle segments.000 cars anticipating that it will get the demand. the company has a market share of 4. Hyundai's number two position in India could be seriously under threat Telco-The Home Grown Challenger Telco did not boast a great reputation for developing even world-class commercial vehicles. almost everyone grudgingly admits that the Indica has been a success. A year down the line. The Indica cost $400 million from start to finish whereas the Hyundai Accent is said to have cost $1. At present.2% in the car segment. forget passenger cars.and unless it keeps springing surprises.

With the entry of new models. which is very difficult for competition to penetrate. Customers are upgrading from entry level small cars to sophisticated small cars and from sophisticated small cars to prestige car segment. The sign of recovery are most visible in the growing demand for automobiles. Honda. Hyundai. The aspirations of Indian consumer are rising with the growing demand. This coupled with governmental support have perhaps been the clinchers for MUL's progress. • Stricter Pollution norms are likely to force vehicle manufacturers to adopt latest technology in maintaining emission standards. technology upgradations along with the traits are likely to be observed in the following trends. what auto companies need to do is develop ergonomic products. despite recent competition from the likes of global players like Daewoo. Especially since. Indian auto companies need to take corrective measures to counter balance the shift in demands from motorcycles to cars. as product quality efficiencies go up in the auto industry and cost Emerging Market Trends The automotive industry is the barometer of Indian economy. is the joint venture route with an international major. Thus one option. which might well become quite popular for Indian auto companies. The projected growth factors in an anticipated export thrust. This is where Indian companies which do not have joint ventures with international automotive majors might well lag behind. etc. which have helped MUL attain a price barrier.21 superior Maruti 800 into the traditional Indian market. increased competition.

Technological up gradation will be primary requisite for success in the market. with slick styling. • • • International companies like Hyundai. This can easily be done by commissioning any international design house. involving huge financial and manpower investments.

The vehicle with higher resale value and good service network is likely to dominate the market. • With developments in the small car segment acquiring a degree of stability in terms of price competition.22 span of vehicle on road while the maintenance cost and the genuine parts consumption per vehicle is expected to increase. All the trends derived out of present dynamics of the Indian automotive vehicle market are indicators of internationalization of this market. Sales in the used car market is also expected to do well as more and more older models get replaced by newer ones at a faster pace. In the near future the competition will be prominent in all the functions of business and only the companies with global standards are likely to survive. Indian manufacturers are gearing up for the challenge but surely the current scenario is apparently in favor of international players.

Tata Motors aimed to increase its presence worldwide. This was mainly to cater to the international market and also to cater to the domestic market where a major improvement in the Road infrastructure was done through the National Highway Development Project . The reasons behind the acquisition were: Company's global plans to reduce domestic exposure. The domestic commercial vehicle market is highly cyclical in nature and prone to fluctuations in the domestic economy the company plans to diversify into various markets across the world in both MHCV as well as LCV segments. Tata plans to leverage on the strong presence of TDCV in the heavy-tonnage range and introduce products in India at an appropriate time.39 Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle (One Of The Successful Joint Ventures) With the success of Tata Indica.

For example after the Daewoo acquisition the Indian company leaned work discipline and how to get the final product ‘right first time. Indian market. and the companies have an agreement to build a pick-up targeted at Central and South America. The benefit is that Tata has been able to exchange expertise. Not only is it focusing upon new products and acquisitions. Would the brand sensitive British consumer ever buy into such a brand? . • Despite buying the Jaguar and Land Rover brands (see opportunities below). the Fiat Palio Style was launched by Tata in 2007. Is the brand associated with commercial vehicles and low-cost passenger cars to the extent that it has isolated itself from lucrative segments in a more aspiring India? • One weakness which is often not recognised is that in English the word ‘tat’ means rubbish. For example.’ • The company has a strategy in place for the next stage of its expansion. • The company has had a successful alliance with Italian mass producer Fiat since 2006.41 Swot Analysis of TATA Motors Strengths • The internationalization strategy so far has been to keep local managers in new acquisitions. but it also has a programme of intensive management development in place in order to establish its leaders for tomorrow. Tat has not got a foothold in the luxury car segment in its domestic. and to only transplant a couple of senior managers from India into the new market. This has enhanced the product portfolio for Tata and Fiat in terms of production and knowledge exchange. Weaknesses • The company’s passenger car products are based upon 3rd and 4th generation platforms. which put Tata Motors Limited at a disadvantage with competing car manufacturers.

• • Tata Motors Limited acquired Daewoo Motor’s Commercial vehicle business in 2004 for around USD $16 million. Again. Nano is the cheapest car in the World . is now the right time to move into this segment? The answer to this question (and the one above) is that new and emerging industrial nations such as India. Threats • Other competing car manufacturers have been in the passenger car business for 40. 50 or more years. However the company has put in place a very proactive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee to address potential strategies that will make is operations more sustainable. and will undoubtedly off the company the chance to market vehicles in the luxury segments. South Korea and China will have a thirst for low-cost passenger and commercial vehicles.42 Maybe not. Jaguar and Land Rover (see opportunities and strengths). Opportunities • In the summer of 2008 Tata Motor’s announced that it had successfully purchased the Land Rover and Jaguar brands from Ford Motors for UK £2. These are the opportunities. • The range of Super Milo fuel efficient buses are powered by super-efficient. The bus has optional organic clutch with booster assist and better air intakes that will reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. ecofriendly engines. the new Land Rover and Jaguar models will cost up to 85 times more than a standard Nano! • The new global track platform is about to be launched from its Korean (previously Daewoo) plant. Whilst the World is getting ready for greener alternatives to gas-guzzlers. is the Nano the answer in terms of concept or brand? Incidentally.3 million.retailing at little more than a motorbike. at a time when the World is looking for environmentally friendly transport alternatives. . but they would buy into Fiat. Two of the World’s luxury car brand have been added to its portfolio of brands. Therefore Tata Motors Limited has to catch up in terms of quality and lean production.

• Rising prices in the global economy could pose a threat to Tata Motors Limited on a couple of fronts. it has left itself open to competition from overseas companies for the emerging Indian luxury segments. Honda and Toyota. Introduction to Hyundai motors . Other players developing luxury cars targeted at the Indian market include Ford. In fact the entire Indian market has become a target for other global competitors including Maruti Udyog. For example ICICI bank and DaimlerChrysler have invested in a new Pune-based plant which will build 5000 new Mercedes-Benz per annum. as Tata globalizes and buys into other brands this problem could be alleviated. The price of steel and aluminium is increasing putting pressure on the costs of production.43 • Sustainability and environmentalism could mean extra costs for this low-cost producer. Obviously. • Since the company has focused upon the commercial and small vehicle segments. General Motors. Many of Tata’s products run on Diesel fuel which is becoming expensive globally and within its traditional home market. This could impact its underpinning competitive advantage. Ford and others.
