Boeing expects a demand of between 900 to 1,000 commercial aircraft worth USD100 billion approximately in the next 20 years. ted offsets. The defence offset policy has been under implementation and a formal civil offset policy is also expected to follow shortly. The total spending in the next 5 years is expected to be between USD25 billion (assuming uniform demand) for commercial aircrafts and USD100 billion as defence expenditure. Out of the defence expenditure, approximately 15-20 percent (USD15-20 billion) is expected to be spent on military aircrafts. Assuming an offset of 30 percent for the civil sector too, the total offset opportunity for the aerospace sector is valued to be at least USD10-15 billion. As Indian manufacturing capabilities mature over the years, it is expected to capture a large share of this opportunity.The Indian aerospace industry is one of the fastest-growing aerospace markets in the world with an expanding consumer base comprising airlines, businesses and High Net Worth Individuals.

Moreover, India provides trained manpower at competitive costs making India a favoured global manufacturing hub. The attractiveness of the Indian markets on one hand and the stagnation of the auto sector in markets such as Europe, US and Japan on the other have resulted in shifting of new capacities and flow of capital to the Indian automobile industry. According to the International Yearbook of Industrial Statistics 2008 released by United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), India ranks 12th in the list of the worlds top 15 automakers.

These include machine tools, industrial machinery, process plant equipment, construction & mining equipment, electrical equipment, textile machinery, printing & packaging machinery etc. The Capital Goods industry is the mother of all manufacturing industry and is of strategic importance to the National security and economic independence. It is in the interest of the User Sectors that the Capital Goods industry should be strengthened since it is a known fact that the presence of a strong domestic industry increases competition and helps in reducing the capital cost of the project and most important, the maintenance of plant and machinery can be done economically. The imported plants come at the lowest cost but the importers make up for that in their high priced maintenance contracts & spares. The Capital Goods Sector was on an upswing since March 2002, due to investments having taken place in the infrastructure, oil & gas sector, power sector, steel plants, automobile industries etc. The capital goods industry has evolved over these years in terms of competitiveness by consolidating. Hence the number of players are few. Due to its strategic importance for the country, it is essential to encourage manufacturing of capital goods rather than import and enhance the value addition and technology transfer. The annual sales of the capital goods industry was about Rs.110,000 crores during 2008-09 though the market is more than Rs 300,000 crores with between 60 to 70 % of equipment across all categories being imported, with the drastic fall in customs duty and the inherent dis-advantages faced by domestic manufacturers thereby making them cost un-competitive and reducing them to be traders and assemblers, instead of manufacturers. Its contribution to the exchequer has been in excess of Rs.20,000 crores in terms of customs, sales tax and excise collections and which will be higher if corporate taxes are added. The capital investments made in this sector has registered a healthy CAGR of close of 10% for a period from 1995 to 2005. The industry currently employs 6 million skilled and semi-skilled workers. It needs to be highlighted that this sector generates the much needed employment for less educated persons like fitters, welders, machine operators and ITI graduates and employs all collared people.Capital Goods Industry: Policy Intervention for Sustaining GrowthFew sectors of the capital goods sector, which have a lower gestation period & are off the shelf products has been witnessing a downturn since October 2008. The performance of the capital goods companies are expected to lower in 2009 - 2010 as compared to 2008 - 2009 as the order in flow had slowed down since the global recession. It is expected that the industry will foresee an upswing either in the last quarter of the current financial year or first quarter of next financial year as order inflows have picked up.10/7/201110Source CII websiteChemicals The chemical industry in India is poised for explosive growth in the coming years.
