Indian Automakers Face Huge Challenges, Study Predicts Continued Growth


A new study by IBM and the Trans­porta­tion Research Insti­tute of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Michi­gan high­lights a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant prob­lems that face Indi­an automak­ers. Poor roads, short­age of skilled labor and inad­e­quate port facil­i­ties are among the obsta­cles. The study con­cludes that India will con­tin­ue to be a grow­ing domes­tic mar­ket and an export pow­er­house. The Indi­an gov­ern­ment and con­sumers’ access to cred­it gives these automak­ers an advan­tage over their Chi­nese coun­ter­parts.
