Manufacturing Sector

India has emerged as one of the world's top ten countries in Industrial Production , manufacturing textiles, chemicals, drugs, machines, electrical products, printing and packaging, automotive components and several others products. The Index of Industrial Production (IIP) data for April 2010 shows a growth of 19.4 % in the manufacturing sector as compared to April 2009. The cumulative growth during April-March 2009-10 over the corresponding period of 2008-09 is 10.9 %, according to data released by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation. India is fast emerging as a global manufacturing hub with a large number of companies shifting their manufacturing base to the country. India has the largest number of companies, outside of Japan, that have been recognized for excellence in quality. As many as 21 companies have received the Deming Excellence awards, and 153 companies have achieved the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Excellence Award for their total productivity management practices by the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) committee.

The new orders index increased to 63.7 in May from 61.9 in April 2010, on the back of strong domestic demand. It was the 14th consecutive month when new orders expanded. Exports from special economic zones (SEZs) grew by over 122 % to US$ 49.5 billion in 2009-10 as compared to 2008-09. IT, IT hardware, petroleum, engineering, leather and garments are the leading exports from SEZs. The Indian Government has implemented the Consolidated Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy and is working on launching a National Manufacturing Policy by the end of 2010 .The plan is to establish National Manufacturing and Investment Zones (NMIZs) to push the manufacturing share in the national GDP. The proposed National Manufacturing Policy for these NMIZs, would act as the key enablers in driving the growth of the sector in India, as per the press release.
