Shifts in the contribution of agriculture, industrial and services sector

Indian Sectoral contribution towards GDP


• Agriculture is the predominant occupation in India, accounting for about 60% of employment. • The service sector makes up a further 28%, and industrial sector around 12%.

• Major agricultural products include rice, wheat, oilseed, cotton, jute, tea, sugarcane, potatoes, cattle, water buffalo, sheep, goats, poultry and fish.

• India is the largest producer in the world of milk, cashew nuts, coconuts, tea, ginger, turmeric and black pepper.

• It is the second largest producer of wheat, rice, sugar, groundnut and inland fish. It is the third largest producer of tobacco. India accounts for 10% of the world fruit production with first rank in the production of banana and sapota. •

Agriculture sector growth

• • Major industries include textiles, chemicals, food processing, steel, transportation equipment, cement, mining, petroleum, machinery and software design

• Investment in Indian companies reached record levels by 1994 and many multinationals decided to set up shop in India • • Over the period 1992-93 to 1999-2000, the manufacturing sector has recorded an average annual growth rate of 6.3 per cent and in 2001-02; it recorded a growth of 2.8 per cent.

Indian Services growth
§The software industry was one of the fastest growing sectors in the last decade with a compound annual growth rate exceeding 50 per cent. §Software service exports increased from US$ 4.02 billion in 19992000 to US$ 6.3 billion in 2000-01, thereby registering a growth of 57 per cent. India's success in the software sector can be largely attributed to the industry's ability to cultivate superior knowledge through intensive R&D efforts expertise in applying the knowledge in commercially viable technologies

Services sector growth

US sectoral contribution towards GDP

US Services sector

US Service economy

US services sector
• Eight of every 10 U.S. jobs are in the services sector. Services industries provide more new jobs than the rest of the U.S. economy combined.

• Over the past two decades, the services sector has created almost 40 million new jobs across the full range of services: software engineers, nurses, mortgage specialists, lawyers, instructors, mutual fund managers, film and television technicians, insurance agents, tour operators, and many others.

• The service sector -- including everything from restaurants and hotels to banks and airlines -- represents about 80 percent of economic activity in the United States. •

US-agriculture sector
• Productivity growth was much more important for agriculture than for the overall economy

• More than 70 percent of growth was caused by additions of labor, capital, and material inputs.

• Because of the large number of producers and the dispersed nature of production, public investments have been a very important source of productivity growth for agriculture.

• Public agricultural R&D and infrastructure accounted for 75 percent of the growth in agricultural productivity between 1949 and 1991.

US-Industry/manufacturing sector
• USA is the leading manufacturer in the world with a 2007 industrial output of US$2,696,880 millions. Main industries are petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace, telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing, consumer goods, lumber, mining. Industrial production slipped by 0.5% in January 2009 despite stimulus packages declared by the administration to defend against the impact of worldwide slump. IIP grew by 6.2% during the corresponding period a year ago. Manufacturing, which declined 0.8%, led the reduction in industrial production, which was being followed by mining output, which declined by 0.4%. According to official projection, industrial growth is figured at 4.8% for 2008-09.

• • • • • •

A comparison among the 3 sectors in US
• The growth of the services sector has benefited most from favorable changes in relative prices.

• While manufacturing, agriculture, and food processing have suffered negative terms of trade.

• An increase in the price of manufacturing leads to a small increase in the supply of agricultural output.

• This result is explained, in part, by agriculture’s  being a supplier of primary inputs to the manufacturing sector.

Prospects of India-USA cooperation
• There are several areas where economic cooperation between India and the US can progress further. These include infrastructure, IT, Telecom sector, energy and other knowledge industries such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. The Government of India is continuously reviewing its policies to create an investor friendly environment in sectors such as roads, ports and airports. Private sector participation in management, BOT projects, green-field airports, terminals and shipping berths and capacity augmentation has been initiated. The IT sector is India’s fastest growing sectors with over 50 percent average annual compounded growth since 1991. Today, nearly two in five of the Fortune 500 companies outsource their software requirements to India. Abundant investment opportunities exist for further strengthening Indo-US economic ties in the IT sector, especially, in areas like communication infrastructure, satellite-based communication wireless, IT-enabled services, and so on

• • With about 20 million people entering the middle class, India's growth is in the domestic market. India is not merely an exporter but a big importer. India presents a huge market opportunity to other countries.

Defense cooperation between Indian and American armed forces builds military capacities on both sides for combined operations.

India’s energy sector has been an important destination for US investment. The sector offers for exploitation a vast untapped potential to investors in hydro electricity, oil & natural gas and coal In order to promote bilateral trade and investment in the knowledge- based industries, the US India Business Council (USIBC), along with FICCI, has launched a Knowledge Trade Initiative (KTI). KTI aims to solidify Indo-US leadership in the knowledge economy by harmonizing bilateral positions on key issues affecting knowledge trade. The US investor community is today increasingly sharing confidence in the future of the Indian economy. The growing synergy between the two countries in the technology sectors and mutually shared respect for democracy, rule of law and well established business practices make the two countries natural business partners.
