    8 Top Reasons to Invest in India

    1. Size of India
    2. India’s GDP is currently US$1.3 trillion, making it the 8th largest economy in the world. However, in PPP terms, which recognises India’s low cost base, the GDP notionally rises to three times this amount (US$3.8 trillion) which places it on a similar size to Japan and, by 2013, it will become the third largest economy in the world (after the USA and China) in PPP terms. However, despite representing 7.5% of Global GDP (on a PPP basis) in 2010, India attracts less than 0.5% of investment inflows. An anomaly which is unlikely to continue for much longer!

    3. Economic growth
    4. India’s economy is currently growing by 8.75% per annum (in 2010) and this GDP growth rate is expected to increase to 9% – 10% per annum for each of the next 10 years. India’s GDP will grow five times in the next 20 years, and GDP per capita will almost quadruple.

    5. Diversity
    6. The Indian economy offers investors exposure to a wide range of opportunities from consumer goods and pharmaceuticals to infrastructure, energy and agriculture. With its strong services sector (comprising 50% of India’s economy), particularly in knowledge-based services (IT, software and business services) India has proved that industrialisation and the export of commodities and resources is not the only path to rapid economic development.

    7. Demographics
    8. India is one of the youngest countries in the world, with an average age of 25 and likely to get younger. India’s working-age population will increase by 240 million over the next 20 years. With a population of 1.2 billion, a strong work ethic, high levels of education, democracy, English language skills and an entrepreneurial culture, India is poised to dominate the global economy in the next 20 years.

    9. High Savings
    10. With a savings rate of 37% of GDP, India’s domestic savings fuels most of its investment requirements, and only 20% of India’s total public debt is sourced from foreign borrowing. With significant investment to be made in upgrading India’s poor infrastructure in the next 10 years (estimated to be US$1.7 trillion) India’s Government is taking various steps to further encourage private and foreign investments.

    11. Domestic economy
    12. India’s domestic consumption, generally led by the private sector, has played a significant role in India’s growth and is expected to remain firm as more people enter the workforce and the emerging middle classes. India’s wealthiest consumers (those earning US$1m or more in PPP terms) will increase by 40 million in the next 10 years! Every sector within India’s consumer market is booming, making India far less vulnerable to external shocks and pressures than other emerging markets.

    13. A robust financial sector
    14. India has a robust, diversified and well-regulated financial system which has allowed it to weather the global financial crisis without any major difficulties and present an image of quality, resilience and transparency. India’s banking sector is strong, with top quality balance sheets, high levels of competition (there are around 80 banks in India) and strong corporate governance.

    15. Quality of Investment Markets
    16. The Bombay Stock Exchange is the second oldest in the world (165 years) and offers investors a low cost, highly efficient, modern and well governed environment in which to prosper from India’s extraordinary economic growth. The Indian stock market has generated investment returns of over 15% per annum for the last 10 years and experts expect this rate to increase in the next decade. More significantly perhaps, Indian investors have doubled their money over the last 3 years at a time when many have lost money in almost every other market.



  • The end of Five-Year Plans: All you need to know about this big policy change
  • India to build diesel, gas pipelines to Bangladesh
  • India’s Longest Bridge In Final Stages Of Construction
  • After Kolkata, Mumbai to be the second Indian city with underwater Metro tunnel
  • L&T Construction Wins Rs. 2,170 Crore Orders
  • Eight highways in Gujarat to be upgraded with an investment of Rs 12,000 crore: PM Modi
  • SYL canal has to be constructed: Haryana CM Khattar

    To get a measure of how important the construction industry is to India and its bubbling economy does not take long: just follow the money. It would be easy to start with lists of projects totaling billions in expenditure, or rattle off plans that stretch far into the future, but perhaps a far more telling indicator is the relatively modest investment made by the World Bank just this February.


  • Construction as a sector makes a key contribution to these figures, with it generating an estimated 7.8 % of India’s GDP in the 2016 financial year.
  • As the sixth largest economic sector in India the broad tendrils of construction employ an estimated 35 million of the country’s 1.3 billion population.
  • The International Monetary Fund (IMF) calculated the India received $36.02 billion in net FDI inflow in 2015-16 and the construction sector stands as the second largest recipient of this investment.
  • Predicting that India’s real estate and construction sector would grow to be the third largest globally by 2030, contributing more than 15% to the country’s GDP. As early as 2022 the sectors are expected to provide employment to more than 75 million people.
  • It presented the highest allocation of funds for infrastructure development at $61.1 billion, and for the first time classified affordable housing projects as infrastructure. India’s Ministry of Urban Development launched its Smart Cities mission and spur new urban development thinking. It started in 2015 with a funding pool more than $7 billion.
  • It has pledged to build 175GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022.
  • Estimates suggest that India will need 170 million houses by 2030, creating a significant opportunity for companies that can meet the needs with a successful affordable housing plan.

    In 2015 the United Nations estimated that 32.7% of India’s billion-plus people live in its cities. Over the preceding five years that population had been growing at a rate of 2.4%, well ahead of the country’s overall population growth rate of 1.3%. As the proportion of Indians living in cities gradually expands – it could reach 50% by 2030 – those cities need to improve if that growth is to be sustainable.


    Infrastructure development is a central focus for India, where there is a need for everything from improved roads and transport infrastructure to more power. As such, it is attracting significant investment, primarily from the government’s coffers, but supported by a host of private sector investment. Some estimates have put the amount India needs to spend on infrastructure over the next five years at some $454.83 billion.


    India’s housing market is one of contrasts. On the one hand localized oversupply at the higher end of the market combined with a temporary blip caused by demonization have seen supply outstrip demand and foreign direct investment in property dip. On the other hand there is a significant urban housing shortage in the affordable homes segment, full approval from the authorities before selling properties off plan, while the funds this raises will have to be held in escrow from May 2017. On the affordable housing front the changes are even more significant with the Union Budget for 18-2017 granting affordable housing infrastructure status, thus letting it draw form the considerable infrastructure pot of money the country has set aside for development.


    Commercial property has a slightly clearer road ahead than its residential counterpart thanks to the strong leasing performance of Grade A office space, with 2016 seeing the market enjoy a 9% increase in leasing activity year on year. Thanks to the combined power of the banking, financial services, insurance and IT sectors, all of whom appeared hungry for quality floorspace, 2016 saw 43 million square feet of space leased.


    The development of cost effective social infrastructure that can deliver both healthcare and education to underserved rural areas in India could be a crucial area for private sector investment in the future. . India has a need for an additional 600,000 to 700,000 healthcare beds and it needs them in the next five to six years. Estimates suggest this adds up to a $25-30 billion investment opportunity, with significant opportunity for the participation of the private sector through private equity funding and public private partnerships. Any new investments will enter a healthcare market currently worth around $100 billion, a figure forecast to hit $280 billion by 2020, representing a compound annual growth rate of more than 20%.
