The Case for Investing in India

India, being one of the fastest-growing economies globally, is expected to have the world’s largest working population by 2030. Higher purchasing power, improving social outcomes, and increasing domestic demand have contributed to its sustained growth - from FY2022 to 2024, its average GDP growth rate is projected to be between 8% to 8.5%. Over the last few years, supportive government reforms have aimed to transform India into a manufacturing hub for the world. With these factors, investing in India is a compelling option.

Economy & Favorable Demographics
  • 8.0%-8.5%​ Average GDP growth rate projections from 2021-2023​
  • By 2030, India would also have the largest working age population estimated to cross 1bn. This would also lead India to having close to 800Mn digital content users by 2025.​
Global competitiveness

India has increased its global competitiveness by offering a 15% corporate tax rate to new manufacturing companies, which is among the lowest in the world. It has also reduced the tax rate for existing companies from 30% to 22%. The incentives encouraged many companies into setting up plants and has given a boost to the economy.​

Corporate Tax Rates (%)

government initiatives & GST

Record high FDI of US$ 81.7bn in FY21. Total FDI (inclusive of equity, capital, and re-invested earnings) rose 10% against the previous year (US$74.39bn).​

Focus on making India a global manufacturing hub by implementing the Production Linked Incentives (PLI) scheme up to US$26.5Bn in key sectors until Oct 2021​

Implementation of Goods and Services Tax in 2017 has subsumed various Indian indirect taxes and created a common market. Despite the two waves of the pandemic, GST collections have been consistently above US$13Bn (per month) indicating economic recovery. ​
