Sector Overview


The manufacturing sector is vital for the India’s economic progress. Recently the government has realized the importance of this sector and has taken a number of proactive steps for the growth of the industry. U.S. companies have been present for a long time in India. From automotive to chemical manufacturing, U.S. companies have made their presence in the Indian market.


There are several significant challenges faced by companies manufacturing in India such as labour laws, different tax structures in different states making things very complicated and supply chain challenges that the committee raises with appropriate officials.
