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 government is increasing the research and development (R&D) fund for the automobile industry. All . Tata Motors Launches the least expensive production car in the world. and as of June 2009. Such systems working on real time operating systems allow efficient control of different parts of manufacturing and production. targeting different segments. for which indigenization is highly important. The cars will be manufactured both for the Indian market and for export. one of the core sectors. The sector seems to be optimistic of posting strong sales in the next couple of years in view of a reasonable surge in demand. Also in early 2008.00. It is essential to leverage skills of different engineering disciplines to build these kinds of integrated systems.000. Since the sector is price driven. Some players are working towards development of efficient production systems that control the entire production process with high precision and accuracy. in partnership with the Bavarian Auto Group. Preview of Automobile Industry The automobile industry. huge investment is envisaged to remain competitive through cost advantage. Mahindra commenced its first overseas CKD operations with the launch of the Mahindra Scorpio in Egypt..000 cars for US$500 million. the Xylo has sold over 15000 models. The Indian automobile market is gearing towards having international standards to meet the needs of the global automobile giants and become a global hub. The product becomes dearer if it is manufactured using imported parts. The was completed on 2nd June. Analysts foresee high scope in the electronics for auto sector and expect the retailing of such electronics products to contribute a major chunk of future revenues. IT in the automobile sector plays a crucial role. The super mini was unveiled during the Auto Expo 2008 exhibition in Pragati Maidan. Ford Motors announced its plans to setup a plant in India with an annual capacity of 250. TATA NANO at Rs 1. has undergone metamorphosis with the advent of new business and manufacturing practices in the light of liberalization and globalization.4 In 2008 Tata Motors reached an agreement with Ford to purchase their Jaguar and Land Rover operation for US$ 21 billion. New Delhi In September 2009. Players are strategizing to consolidate their position and gradually increase market penetration with the launch of new models. Mahindra & Mahindra launched the Mahindra Xylo in January 2009.

This will be improved further for research and development activities of vehicle and component manufacturers from the current level of 125%. The Government should promote Research & Development in automotive industry by strengthening the efforts of industry in this direction by providing suitable fiscal and financial incentives. 1961 for sponsored research and in-house R&D expenditure. Indian automobile sector being a driver of product and process technologies. such as BHEL which is developing cell technology as alternative fuel. most of the raw material locally produced.T. faculty or division within the company assessed as competent and qualified for the purpose or in any other R&D institution in the country. extremely capable component industry.5 laboratories in the country researching on automobile technology.

This would include R & D leading to adoption of low emission technologies and energy saving devices. It is trying to bring in varying products to suit requirements of different class segments of customers. The group is working out a plan to link all major laboratories across the country to give a thrust to automotive research. Government will encourage setting up of . drive transmission & steering pats. it is emerging as a major player. n addition. because of its high machine tool capabilities. Vehicle manufacturers will also be considered for a rebate on the applicable excise duty for every 1% of the gross turnover of the company expended during the year on Research and Development carried either in-house under a distinct dedicated entity. based on its performance. The current policy allows Weighted Tax Deduction under I. suspension & braking parts among others. and has become a excellent manufacturing base for global players. low cost manufacturing base and highly skilled manpower Not only a large number of world manufacturers have set up production bases in India but also a large number of foreign companies are collaborating with the auto component suppliers and vendors.

these joint ventures have become fully owned subsidiaries of the foreign partners Broadly. G. Volkswagen etc.e.. the Indian Government removed several restrictions in a bid to attract foreign investors into the automobile industry. concessional duty on plant/equipment imports and granting automatic approval. In the 1990s. . Along with the entry of multinational auto companies. A foreign investor may directly set up its operations in India through a branch office or a representative office or liaison office or project office of the foreign Company . MNCs need to carefully plan their entry into emerging markets. the profile of domestic auto companies too witnessed a structural change.up in India under Indian laws. There are several global automobile companies who were hesitate to come and invest in India ten years ago. Early commitment to a market often results in first mover advantages that are difficult to replicate.M. Honda. targeted at the upper end of the market.6 independent auto design firms by providing them tax breaks. Most MNCs began their operations in India as joint ventures with local partners. The stiff competition to access market prompted companies to go for different models with differing qualities and efficiency. With the exception of Suzuki. Among the first to enter was Daewoo of South Korea. Ford and Daewoo.. It may do so through an Indian arm i. Toyota. entry strategies may be classified into two major types :1. followed by Hyundai.

Examples include Suzuki. 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. The market too expanded at a rapid pace with the entry of soft financial assistance from several financial institutions to middle income households.

a well-developed and well-networked transportation system is essential.7 The impact of India’s initiatives in economic liberalization and globalization (post 1991) is most apparent in the automotive sector. Also. due to increased demand in the aftermarket. As India's transport network is developing at a fast pace. these could be classified as entry-level vehicles. low labor cost of maintenance and the psyche of Indian consumer to delay the discarding of the old vehicle reduced the scrap rate. All these factors resulted in prolonged operational existence of vehicle on Indian roads. In addition. Good performance of the economy has led to higher all round growth leading to high GDP growth of 8%. Indian Automobile Industry is growing too. 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. For instant and rapid growth in economy. This will reduce the average life span of vehicles on road and the overall impact would be reduced per vehicle parts consumption. The benefit of this practice is the comparatively higher revenues for automotive component suppliers. Previously. Indian Automobile Industry includes the manufacturing of . 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. Indian automotive market was characterized by weak air pollution regulations. the Automobile industry has strong backward and forward linkages and hence provides employment to a large section of the population. 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. Therefore. Automotive industry is a key driver of economic growth contributing around four to five percent to the Indian GDP. 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. Excise duty reduction on passenger vehicles helped to reduce the ultimate price to the customer.

Not only the Indian companies but also the international car manufacturing companies are focusing on compact cars to be delivered in the Indian market at a much smaller price. It is also the fifth-largest commercial vehicle manufacturer in the world.

with the growing number of vehicles. With the growing number of vehicles. unleaded petrol was also introduced in metropolitan cities from 1995. In fact the most important action point that was recorded after the ministerial consultation was that manufacturers would have to give emissions warranty for two. Government initiated controls by notifying emission standards from the year 1992 which were further tightened under the Motor Vehicle Act. The Indian auto industry should launch programmes for market development and a wider acceptance of alternative energy-driven vehicles in India. the pollution in the cities is continuously increasing. automobile exhaust contributes more than 60% of the atmospheric pollution in metropolitan cities. which enabled fitments of catalytic convertors on new petrol driven vehicles. Role of Government in Automobile Industry The government is making efforts to overcome the constraints at their research centers for automobile industry.wheelers from But ultimately.12 The Ministry of Heavy Industries has released the Automotive Plan 2006-2016. . To meet these emerging challenges of newer emission norms Indian automobile industry has already braced itself up with new investment and fresh technological induction. Indian automobile industry is also consistently trying to meet the emerging challenges of environmental pollution and better safety standard. the government could not muster enough courage to push the mighty automobile industry and enforce it. The plan focuses on the removal of all the bottlenecks that are inhibiting its growth in the domestic as well as international arena. According to a study. India can also learn from countries like Japan that are already using these technologies for a wide number of applications. with the motive of making India the most popular manufacturing hub for automobiles and its components in Asia. 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. For meeting these norms. the pollution in the cities is ever increasing. It should also work in tandem with the government to make India a world leader in this area.

15 AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURERS), which is already in place in the Major Metro Cities and would be extended throughout the country in a phased manner.

ECONOMICAL FACTORS

India’s huge geographic spread- Mass transport system.

There is a very large transportation system in India for the public which helps the economy to the large scale. • Increasing road development

The new development of road system is contributing a lot towards the transportation system of the country. Better and wide roads and the material used to build the roads is very long lasting and environment friendly. With the better material used the life of the roads is increased which is helping the economy of the country as less expenses will occur. • Higher GDP growth

With the better transportation system the material is moved to different places in short time and easily which helps in increase of the GDP as more products can be made in same time. • Increasing Per Capita income

The per capita income of India is increasing due to which the buying power of the consumers has also increased making people buy cars and bikes. • Cheaper (decline interest rates) and easier finance scheme

The banking system in India is in a good shape. It provides people with easier and cheaper finance schemes which help the consumers to buy vehicles easily. This helps in the increase in sales of the automobile industry which also helps in the th increase of country’s economy.

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.

And when it launched mid-size Accent some time later.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. New measures are being taken to make the automobiles less polluting. at a highly competitive price. Different players in Automobile industry Hyundai: Can The Dream Run Continue? Hyundai has become the undisputed number two in the Indian auto market. Better atmosphere gives better life. This technology is coming worldwide and is also available in Canada now. 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. Unlike Suzuki. which is primarily a small car . Hyundai got everything right because it got the value-price-technology equation almost perfectly right from day one. it doesn't have any other small car in its armoury.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. And with easy consumer financing available in the market. 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 proved that it could get its value-price equation consistently right across different segments That apart. the big worry for Hyundai is that other than the Santro (the Atos in Korea). This well help in reducing the exploitation of atmosphere. and the only one -.even rivals admit -.

But in the long run. It is a smart strategy as it avoids taking any of the big guns head on. the consensus opinion was that Telco had goofed up again. .000 from the current 120. 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. A year down the line. forget passenger cars. the company has a market share of 4. It lacks the sheer money power and product muscle to keep fighting the Fords and GMs in any market.and unless it keeps springing surprises. It also has a small presence in the multi-utility vehicle and the heavy commercial vehicle segments. which it took over last year.18 specialist.2% in the car segment. But Telco is also the weakest player in the small car market -.000 cars anticipating that it will get the demand.6 billion to develop. Hyundai is looking a bit vulnerable now because globally it is a minnow in the car market. 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. or those of Kia Motors. Hindustan Motors Hindustan Motors Ltd (HML) is the oldest passenger car manufacturer in the country. which again focuses on a small niche. And if Ford does take over Daewoo Motors. Other than the automotive sector. the company has diversified into earth moving equipments and power products. almost everyone grudgingly admits that the Indica has been a success. In the passenger car segment. The later is generally manufactured for exports. The Indica was riddled with quality problems. 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. Telco knows it has to take on its rivals in the mainstream markets as well. The Indica cost $400 million from start to finish whereas the Hyundai Accent is said to have cost $1. When the Indica hit the market. At present. It is ramping up capacity to 160. the company has the well known ‘Ambassador’ and ‘Contessa’ models. Telco has already introduced the premium Safari.. Hyundai can only introduce bigger cars in the Indian market either from its own product range.

The coming in of Euro III and IV norms will also increase scrap page rates. the action is shifting to the mid-size car segment. • • Due to free imports local industry is expected to face increased competition from international automotive companies. within the next two years. Sales in this segment will pick up as new models come in and income levels rise but it is still some time till it comes anywhere close to the economy sized segment. Indian manufacturers are gearing up for the challenge but surely the current scenario is apparently in favor of international players. 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. With the increasing number of vehicle population the two wheeler owners will have viable option of used cars. • With developments in the small car segment acquiring a degree of stability in terms of price competition.

Joint Ventures Tata Motors has formed a 51:49 joint venture in bus body building with Marcopolo of Brazil.38 buying Tata cars until maintaining the car or even until they sell the car and change to a newer Tata model. The joint venture will absorb technology and expertise in chassis and aggregates from Tata Motors. Tata has also formed numerous JV's with many small companies in various countries around the world.

This joint venture is to manufacture and assemble fully-built buses and coaches targeted at developing mass rapid transportation systems. Tata and Marcopolo have launched a low-floor city bus which is widely used by Delhi. Tata Motors sells Fiat cars in India and is looking to extend its relationship with Fiat and Iveco to other segments.

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 .39 Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle (One Of The Successful Joint Ventures) With the success of Tata Indica. Tata plans to leverage on the strong presence of TDCV in the heavy-tonnage range and introduce products in India at an appropriate time. it acquired the Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Company of South Korea. Tata Motors aimed to increase its presence worldwide. 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. To expand the product portfolio Tata Motors recently introduced the 25MT GVW Tata Novus from Daewoo’s (South Korea) (TDCV) platform.

the SWOT analysis (the Strengths. . Threats) can clearly tells why Tata Motors marketing strategies is one of the successful stories in automobile industry nowadays.40 Tata remains India's largest heavy commercial vehicle manufacturer and Tata Daewoo is the 2nd largest heavy commercial vehicle manufacturer in South Korea.driven Backed by TATA name SWOT By looking at the Marketing strategies of TATA motors. GloBus and StarBus. Weakness. Tata Motors has jointly worked with Tata Daewoo to develop trucks such as Novus and World Truck and buses namely. Opportunities. Tata Novus one of the best selling commercial trucks in South Korea Tata MarcoPolo released this low-floor bus in India CUSTOMER PERCEPTION: WHY TATA MOTORS In today’s scenario customer are brand loyal and they prefer the ‘BEST’ Reasons to switch on for TATA MOTORS • • • • • 100% reliability Geared for future R & D Edge Tech .

The benefit is that Tata has been able to exchange expertise. This has enhanced the product portfolio for Tata and Fiat in terms of production and knowledge exchange. which put Tata Motors Limited at a disadvantage with competing car manufacturers. For example after the Daewoo acquisition the Indian company leaned work discipline and how to get the final product ‘right first time.41 Swot Analysis of TATA Motors Strengths • The internationalization strategy so far has been to keep local managers in new acquisitions.’ • The company has a strategy in place for the next stage of its expansion. 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. • The company has had a successful alliance with Italian mass producer Fiat since 2006. but it also has a programme of intensive management development in place in order to establish its leaders for tomorrow. Weaknesses • The company’s passenger car products are based upon 3rd and 4th generation platforms. Would the brand sensitive British consumer ever buy into such a brand? . • Despite buying the Jaguar and Land Rover brands (see opportunities below). and the companies have an agreement to build a pick-up targeted at Central and South America. Not only is it focusing upon new products and acquisitions. the Fiat Palio Style was launched by Tata in 2007. Indian market. and to only transplant a couple of senior managers from India into the new market. For example. Tat has not got a foothold in the luxury car segment in its domestic.

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. Jaguar and Land Rover (see opportunities and strengths).3 million. Two of the World’s luxury car brand have been added to its portfolio of brands. but they would buy into Fiat. South Korea and China will have a thirst for low-cost passenger and commercial vehicles. and will undoubtedly off the company the chance to market vehicles in the luxury segments. • The range of Super Milo fuel efficient buses are powered by super-efficient. 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. at a time when the World is looking for environmentally friendly transport alternatives. 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. • • Tata Motors Limited acquired Daewoo Motor’s Commercial vehicle business in 2004 for around USD $16 million. Threats • Other competing car manufacturers have been in the passenger car business for 40. Nano is the cheapest car in the World .42 Maybe not. is the Nano the answer in terms of concept or brand? Incidentally. These are the opportunities. Whilst the World is getting ready for greener alternatives to gas-guzzlers. Therefore Tata Motors Limited has to catch up in terms of quality and lean production. Again. The bus has optional organic clutch with booster assist and better air intakes that will reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. . ecofriendly engines. 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.retailing at little more than a motorbike.

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