Automobiles are symbol of economic development and are one of the essential needs of today’s
customer. The Indian automobile market has changed tremendously since past few decades
and will change even further. Indian automobile industries have blossomed into a great industry
since the first car ran on the streets of Bombay in 1898. From the study of the Indian automobile
industry we conclude the following things. The Indian automobile sector is one of the key
segments of the economy having extensive forward and backward linkages with other key
segments of the economy. The forward linkage refers to its customer base, employment it
provide and backward linkage refers to its supplier to the industry. According to Ministry of
Heavy Industries & Public Enterprise (Government of India) automobile industry contributes
about 4% in India’s GDP. These sectors provide 4.5 lack of employment to the people of India.

From the study of the Indian automobile industry we have find the following problem in the
development of industry.

 Due to rise in inflation there is a rise in the price of the vehicles by 3% to 4% because
the price of the raw material has gone up.
 Inflation has not only affected the production and sale of vehicles but also affected the
car dealers and the financers. As they get low rate of margins.
 Other problem is due to rise in the fuel prices which can affect the growth of automobile
sector. Most of automobile run o diesel, petrol and gas. The rise in the price of this thee
fuel will create serious problem in future.


 The government should make reduction in the fuel prices or they should give subsidiary.
 To reduce the production cost the automobile maker firms can cut the jobs.
 With the entry of global competitors in the Indian automobile industry it has result in
advanced technologies in the production and production process which has resulted in
reducing the cost of production.
 With the development of alternative fuels like electricity, bio-fuel etc. it has result in the
evolution of new kind of car called hybrid cars. This will help to neutralize the effect of
high fuel price.
 Government should also take initiatives regarding tax rebate that can result in the
reduction in the price on the vehicles.
 India holds huge potential in the automobile sector including the automobile component
sector owing to its technological, cost and manpower advantage.
