Foreign Direct Investment</li></li></ul><li>Economic Side of the Issue- Current Scenario<br />From a phase when growth rates were more than healthy, the sector has been on a bit of a rocky path now- the industry is in a slowdown phase- sales in the passenger car segment have fallen by 1.71%- from 89250 to 87,724.<br />Dilip Chenoy, director general, SIAM, points out that a combination of factors like high interest rates, rising levels of inflation, lack of easy finance, and global oil prices are staring the auto majors in the face.- raw material prices have increased by about 50% for some players and doubled for the less fortunate ones. <br />Venu Srinivasan, chairman and managing director, TVS Motors- “In 2006-07, sales received a boost and saw a growth surge of 19-20% due to unlimited finance availability. At that time, companies chose to finance customers without any questions.”<br />Overall this has lead to increased costs on the input side and a fall in customer purchasing power due unavailability of unlimited finance <br />
  48. 48. Net Substantial Effects<br />Net effects- passenger car makers have been operating below capacity for a while. Recently, Maruti closed one of its plants for two days. Other volume players like Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) have been adjusting production to tide over the lean season.<br />Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have put off their plans for a second plan<br />Ford Motor India had recently announced a fresh investment of Rs. 2100 Crore, however now that plan is only being carried forward in a tentative manner.<br />Tata Motors’ profit figures for the most recent quarter (second quarter of FY09) was the worst ever for the company in the last six years.<br />
  49. 49. How To Approach the Issue<br />Look towards frontiers out of India- Ashok Leyland recently said quite emphatically- “Leaving aside the large demand markets, which also have large manufacturers to support themselves, there are still 45% of developed markets left for our company to explore. This is especially when there is an estimated 1:4 advantage in development cost that Indian greenfield projects enjoy over European ones,” <br />Exports to neighboring countries and the Middle East have grown by 20-25%<br />The Jaguar and Land Rover companies owned by the Ford Motor Company was acquired by the Tata Motors Ltd for estimated price of US$ 1.5 billion<br />The Maruti Udyog Ltd has captured nearly 60% of the small car market in Indonesia <br />Innovation- TATA Motors and M and M. The former, for instance, is closely looking at the option of launching electric vehicles and hybrid versions- Tata Motors is in dialogue with Norway-based Miljobil Grenland to develop an electric vehicle on the Nano platform and with Chrysler for the Ace<br />
  50. 50. Overall Economic Outlook<br />Although the Indian Auto Industry is in a slowdown phase- this is part of cyclical cycle and therefore this slowdown is not a great matter of concern according to experts such as T. T. Srinivasaraghavan, Sundaram Finance.<br />High demand should eventually overpower these current forces- this is mainly because Indian consumers are still “Demand Hungry” and their net “purchasing power” is on the rise. <br />
  51. 51. TECHNOLOGY<br />Greater emphasis on R & D<br />Accelerating the pace of change<br />Innovation<br />Increased regulation of technological change<br />
  52. 52. Innovation<br />Fuel Efficiency<br />Common Rail Diesel technology<br />Variable Valve Timing<br />Hybrid Cars<br />Fuel efficient<br />Low emission<br />Quietness<br />Concept Cars <br />i-unit <br />
  53. 53. Regulations<br />Safety Technology<br />Wheel lock up<br />Additional breaking force<br /> Air Bag<br />FrontSideRear end collision<br />Whiplash Injury lessening<br />Vehicle stability control<br />
  54. 54. Acceleration of change <br />Assembly line<br />Product life cycle reduced<br />Better technology at a lower price<br />
  55. 55. Research and development – auto industry<br />Global auto and component makers invest between 5 and 8% in R&D.<br />Spending on R&D in India up from 243cr to 954cr in past four years.<br />Cost advantage India offers makes more players likely to scale up R&D outsourcing to India.<br />GM, Daimler, Volvo, Honda and Bosch are scaling up R&D investments out of India.<br /> “Indian engineers are very efficient and have a <br /> sense of frugality” – executive VP(product planning) ,Renault<br />
  56. 56. Cost advantage India offers makes more players likely to scale up R&D outsourcing to India.<br />GM, Daimler, Volvo, Honda and Bosch are scaling up R&D investments out of India.<br /> “Indian engineers are very efficient and have a <br /> sense of frugality” – executive VP(product planning) ,Renault<br />Research and development – auto industry<br />
  57. 57. Increasing role of IT in automotive space<br /> a) apart from IT support systems like supply chain management , CRM - IT companies are <br /> developing solutions for the automotive sector.<br /> b)“making automobiles more intelligent like building collision avoidance systems ,engine management systems and even entertainment features in cars”<br />$1bn auto vertical has the potential to grow to $50 - $60 bn by 2020.<br /> This requires the 3 stakeholders – global auto firms, their Indian counterparts and IT companies to get into collaborative research.<br />
  58. 58. Numbers Speak the Potential<br />
  59. 59. The Path Ahead<br />Growth of transport sector will boost automobile industry<br />Automobile Industry on an Investment overdrive<br />Over 30000 crore to be invested by 2010<br /><ul><li> Hyundai will bring in more than Rs 3,800 crore
  60. 60. Tata Motors will be investing Rs 2,000 crore
  61. 61. General Motors will be investing Rs 100 crore and Ford about Rs 350 crore
