To : MR. SANJAY KUMAR
Worldwide, the auto parts manufacturing industry generates about $1
trillion in annual revenue. Economic expansion in emerging markets is
expected to drive healthy growth in the auto manufacturing sector over the
next several years, which should bolster demand for auto parts .Companies
in this industry manufacture automobile parts, including transmission and
power train components, engines and engine parts, body parts and trim,
electronics, braking systems, and steering and suspension components.
Demand for auto parts is driven by new car sales, which are strongly
affected by interest rates, and by the replacement market. Company
profitability depends partly on the difficulty of manufacturing products and
partly on demand volume, since many costs are fixed. Small companies can
compete successfully by focusing on a small number of products or some
highly technical ones. Over the years, Indian Auto Spare Parts sector has

the employees work and behave in an organization.
• Due to hierarchy in the organization the exposure was limited.
• The difficulty arises in the collection of data from the documents available in
the company as they are prepared with a different format than as we use
