Automotive Component Market in India

The Indian automobile components industry has come

a long way since the countrys economic liberalization. From a quiet supplier of low-value components to the domestic aftermarket, the industry has transformed itself into a global hub for sourcing a range of highvalue and critical automobile components. The industry is the darling of many global auto makers such as GM, Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, etc., who source auto components worth millions from India. In fact, the industry is one of the front runners for grabbing the auto components outsourcing market estimated to be worth US$700 billion by 2015

Market Challenges
Duty drawback and incentives:

Auto component exporters find duty drawback a cumbersome and time-consuming process due to multiplicity in processes and interfaces. Currently, it takes anywhere between 3 months to 6 months to get duty drawback amount Exhibitions in foreign markets: The fund provided by the Government for participating in foreign exhibitions is too meager and hence is not of much use.

Market Entry
Thailand has an Institution called the TAPMA which is an

institution set up to promote the development of manufacturers of auto parts

This makes setting up a business or manufacturing plant

This is an important trade barrier that needs to be taken

into account
That is why we chose direct exports to loyal customers

EPCG Scheme Relaxations

To increase the life of existing plant and machinery, export obligation on import of spares, moulds etc. under EPCG Scheme has been reduced to 50% of the normal specific export obligation
Department of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises The Department of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises

has also suggested creating a fund worth US$ 0.2 billion (INR 10 billion) to mordernise the auto components industry by providing an interest subsidy on loans and the purchase of new plants and equipment.

Trade fairs are the most effective marketing vehicle in

Thailand as they are very common and very enthusiastically attended
