According to the Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers (SIAM), the Indian automotive sector today is a USD 74 billion industry and by 2026, the industry is expected to achieve a turnover of USD 300 billion- clocking a CAGR of ~ 15 percent. The Automotive Mission Plan (AMP) was initiated by the Government of India to map the aspirations of the auto and auto component industry, to promote India as a preferred global manufacturing destination.

Vision AMP 2016-26 has been aligned with the ‘Make in India’ campaign. In its pursuit to foster best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure in India, the ‘Make in India’ initiative is spearheading a wider adoption of ‘Industry 4.0’—which is going to change the way India manufactures, designs and refurbishes products.

National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project, aiming at spending USD 280 million for the creation of centers of excellence and crash test centers, and The National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 for creating a vehicle base of ~7 million electric cars by 2020,—are some of the key initiatives by the government to boost sectorial development. More than 15 percent of the visitors at LASER World of PHOTONICS INIDA come from the automotive engineering industry and over 50 percent of other related industries.
