ENGINEERING INDUSTRY IN GENERAL

MARKET OVERVIEW

The engineering sector is the largest segment of Indian Industry

The engineering sector is the largest segment of the overall Indian industrial sector. India has a strong engineering and capital goods base. The important groups within the engineering industry include machinery & instruments, primary and semi finished iron & steel, steel bars & rods, non-ferrous metals, electronic goods and project exports. The engineering sector employs over 4 million skilled and semi-skilled workers (direct and indirect).

The sector can be categorized into heavy engineering and light engineering segments. Heavy engineering segment forms the majority of the engineering sector in India. In the year 2003-04, out of the total engineering production of US$ 22 billion, the heavy engineering market contributed over 80 per cent with the light engineering segment accounting for the remaining. India has a well-developed and diversified industrial machinery/capital base capable of manufacturing the entire range of industrial machinery. The industry has also managed to successfully develop advanced manufacturing technology over the years. Among the developing countries, India is a major exporter of heavy and light engineering goods, producing a wide range of items. The bulk of capital goods required for power projects, fertilizer, cement, steel and petrochemical plants and mining equipment are made in India. The country also makes construction machinery, equipment for irrigation projects, diesel engines, tractors, transport vehicles, cotton textile and sugar mill machinery.

The engineering industry has shown capacity to manufacture large-size plants and equipment for various sectors like power, fertilizer and cement. Lately, air pollution control equipment is also being made in the country. The heavy electrical industry in India meets the entire domestic demand.

A large number of multinational companies like Cummins, Alfa Laval, Sandwik Asia, etc. have also entered the engineering industry in India.
