Industry Overview

The Indian auto component industry is one of India's sunrise industries with
tremendous growth prospects. From a low-key supplier providing components to the
domestic market alone, the industry has emerged as one of the key auto components
centres in Asia and is today seen as a significant player in the global automotive
supply chain. India is now a supplier of a range of high-value and critical automobile
components to global auto makers such as General Motors, Toyota, Ford and
Volkswagen, amongst others.

As per an Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) report,

the turnover of the auto component industry was estimated at over US$ 18 billion in
2007-08, an increase of 27.2 per cent since 2002. It is likely to touch US$ 40 billion,
increasing India’s share in the global auto component market from 1 per cent to 3 per
cent by 2015-16.

Aided by a 7 per cent growth in the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) segment
and an 8.5 per cent rise in exports and after-market segment, it is expected that auto
ancillary production would grow by 8.2 per cent in 2009-10, according to a report by
the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE).

Investments in the auto component industry were estimated at US$ 7.2 billion in
2007-08 and are likely to touch US$ 20.9 billion by 2015-16. In Tamil Nadu alone,
nearly US$ 1 billion have been invested by some of the major trye companies, such as
Apollo Tyres, ATC Tires, MRF, Dunlop and TVS Srichakra.

Exports of auto components grew at the rate of 35 per cent during 2002-07 and
touched US$ 3.6 billion in 2007-08. It is estimated to reach around US$ 20 billion-
US$ 22 billion by 2015-16. During April-January 2008-09, exports grew by 27.3 per
cent to US$ 2.12 million. A majority of Indian exports are sent to Europe and North

India will be the next destination for the Automotive Testing Expo to be hosted by
UKIP Media at Hyderabad next year. The expo will now be an annual event for the
country and will showcase latest technologies, including simulation, for new
automotives and components.

Indian companies are also expanding their footprints abroad. For instance, TVS
Logistics, a part of the TVS group, acquired one of the largest after market logistics
companies in the UK. The company will undertake an investment in excess of US$
26.77 million in Multipart Holding in the next 18 months in order to expand its
operations in the UK and rest of Europe.

Further, Coimbatore-based Elgi Rubber Company has formed a fully owned subsidiary
company in Texas, US under the name of Elgi Rubber Company LLC, investing up to
US$ 5 million on the venture.

Destination India

According to the Investment Commission of India, global automobile manufacturers

see India as a manufacturing hub for auto components and are rapidly increasing the
value of components they source from India due to:

• India's cost competitiveness in terms of labour and raw material.

• Its established manufacturing base.

Makers of luxury cars are increasingly looking at making India a sourcing hub for
components, besides using more local components in cars for the Indian market.
BMW is likely to sign the first direct sourcing deal with local vendors by the end of this
year. Skoda Auto India is looking at increasing localization for its small car Fabia to
over 50 per cent over the next two years. Mercedes Benz India expects growth in
sourcing from India to continue at 10 per cent.

Foreign Investments

India enjoys a cost advantage with respect to casting and forging as manufacturing
costs in India are 25 to 30 per cent lower than their western counterparts. Seeing the
growing popularity of India in the automotive component sector, the Investment
Commission has set a target of attracting foreign investment worth US$ 5 billion for
the next seven years to increase India's share in the global auto components market
from the existing 0.9 per cent to 2.5 per cent by 2015.

• Swiss auto clamps maker, Oeitker Group, has inaugurated the first phase of its
manufacturing facility in India. It has invested US$ 12.58 million in Phase I and
hopes to start work on the second phase by the end of next year.

• The Tamil Nadu state cabinet recently gave clearance to the French tyre major,
Michelin’s proposal to set up a US$ 851.5 million Greenfield project near
Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

• A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by the US auto giant,

Ford Motors, with the Tamil Nadu government to set up a unit with a capacity
of 250,000 engines a year.

• German auto company, Volkswagen has commenced sourcing components from

India for its Russian plant and is also looking at sourcing light systems, plastic-
related items and metals for its European plants.

Domestic Investments

The market is so large and diverse that a large number of players can be absorbed to
accommodate buyer needs. The sector not only has global players looking to invest

and expand but leading domestic component companies are also pumping in huge
sums into expanding operations. An auto park is coming up near Hyderabad with
investments worth over US$ 409.30 million from around 34 automotive ancillary
units. This is in addition to a US$ 245.59 million Greenfield project being set up by
MLR Motors near the park.

Moreover, Indian tyre makers are rolling out investment plans worth US$ 1.24 billion,
due to the rising popularity of radial tyres in the commercial vehicles segment.

Some other investments include:

• Apollo Tyres is to scale up investment at its upcoming radial tyre project at

Oragadam in Tamil Nadu from US$ 106.4 million to US$ 447.04 million.

• Hero Motors will invest US$ 19.84 million in association with Austrian firm BRP
Power train for manufacturing automotive transmissions in India.

• Indian arm of Swedish automotive component maker SKF is investing US$ 30

million in a new ball bearings manufacturing plant at Haridwar.

Policy Initiatives

The government has taken many initiatives to promote foreign direct investment (FDI)
in the industry.

• Automatic approval for foreign equity investment up to 100 per cent of

manufacture of automobiles and components is permitted.

• The automobile industry has been delicensed.

• There are no restraints on import of components.

The government has envisaged the Automotive Mission Plan 2016 to promote growth
in the sector. It targets:

• Emerging as the global favorite in the area of design and manufacture of

automobiles and auto components.

• Taking the output to US$ 145 billion, accounting for more than 10 per cent of
the GDP.

• Offering additional employment to 25 million people by 2016.

Looking Ahead

With investments around US$ 15 billion slated for the sector over the next few years,
the prospects for India's auto market are bright.

Even though India's auto component industry has conventionally relied on exports for
its profits, the domestic market itself is ripe with rapidly growing opportunities.
Industry experts are hopeful that the country will be able to offset China and other

Southeast Asian countries' traditional manufacturing advantage in the coming years,
facilitating the industry's achievement of its targeted market value of US$ 40 billion by
