IndustryManufacturing industry generally refers to those
industries which deal with manufacturing and processing of items and lead to
either creation of new commodities or results in value addition. The end
product can either serve as a finished goods for sale to customers or as
intermediate goods to be used in further production processes. It is the
biggest private sector employer in India. More than 30 million people are part
of this sector through organized or unorganized ways. Indian Government has
aimed to achieve 25 per cent GDP share and create 100 million new jobs by 2022
in the manufacturing industry. Make in India campaign launched back in 2014
with the aim of attracting manufacturers and FDI has been so far a success with
the Government aiming to establish India as a global manufacturing hub. The
manufacturing industry has diversified itself deeply into private sector with
the sector occupying 70 % of the total manufacturing industry.            In India, there are six major manufacturing clusters
which are home to some of the biggest industries of the manufacturing sector.
They are – 1.

One should also
note that the manufacturing sector has grown at a CAGR of 9.87 per cent between
FY12 and FY17. On the other hand, WPI or Wholesale Price Index, in respect of
manufacturing goods grow upto 4.4 per cent in 2016-17. As per National Industrial
Classification, some of the industries which sums up to form manufacturing
sector is food products, textiles, furniture, chemicals and chemical products,
basic metals, electric equipment, motor vehicles, amongst others.If we take a
look at GVA or Gross Value Added, the manufacturing sector at basic prices
based on 2011-12 price series was US$ 350.4 billion in 2016-17. The contribution of manufacturing sector with
respect to GVA at 2011-12 prices was at 17.98 percent for 2016-17. When it
comes to GDP, the contribution of manufacturing industry increased to 5355.42
INR Billion in the third quarter of 2017 from 5131.39 INR Billion in second
quarter of 2017. Another important fact which cannot be ignored is that the GDP
from Manufacturing  in India averaged 4269.80 INR Billion from 2011 until
2017, reaching an all time high of 5355.42 INR Billion in the third quarter of
2017 and a record low of 3305.81 INR Billion in the fourth quarter of 2011.  If one analyses the gross capital formation per
sector industry, the manufacturing industry was second behind Real Estate at
US$ 102.96 billion in 2016-17 based on constant prices. Thus, the sector saw a
positive growth at about 9.33 per cent in FY17.The electronic goods industry is one of the fastest
growing industries and is expected to be worth US$ 400 billion by 2020.
Government is working on an export-oriented policy for Electronic products. The
idea behind this policy is to promote greater exports of electronics and drive
larger investments by setting up port-based electronic manufacturing clusters.
Also, as of November 2017, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology
is going to come up with a new electronics manufacturing policy and is in
process of setting up industry-specific groups.India is expected to have spending worth US$ 40
billion on defence purchases over the next 3-4 years. The inclusion of When one considers
the most diversified industrial sectors, chemicals industry has an array of
more than 70,000 commercial products covered under it. If the stats of
April-June 2017 are considered, total Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in
chemicals (excluding fertilisers) stood at US$ 679 million whereas cumulative
FDI till June 2017 from April 2000 was US$ 13.972 billion. While being the
sixth largest producer of chemicals globally, India is the third largest
producer in Asia in terms of output. The country ranks third globally in the
production of agro chemicals and has an effective contribution of around 16 per
cent to the global dyestuff and dye intermediates production. Some of the
industries sharing high percentage of agro-chemicals include UPL, Indofil
Industries, Bayer CropScience, Rallis India amongst others. As a result, the
India agrochemical market for FY17 contributed roughly around $7 billion to the
country. The
above statistics gives an insight into the global 10 companies based on revenue
for 2017. The values are based on the 2017 Financial Times Global 500 list.Number
one on the list of the top 10 chemical companies in the world in 2017 is BASF
SE. this is the largest chemical producer in the world, serving at least
300,000 customers across the globe. BASF operates over a total of five segments

insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides.The
US market is dominated by Chemical Industries such as Dow Chemical and
LyondellBasell Industries. On the other hand, three of the Germany’s chemical
industries are considered to be some of the largest industries in the world.
BASF, Bayer, and Linde together generated 141.5 billion U.S. dollars worth
revenues.           Market Trends The world of
industrial manufacturers inhabit a world littered with uneasiness. Global demand
for manufactured products has grown at a snail’s pace. Expected increase in
output was merely just 3.1 percent in 2016 and 3.4 percent in 2017 according to
IMF. However, the newer generation Industrial Revolution referred to as
Industry 4.0 is powered by advancements that include smart manufacturing,
robotics, artificial intelligence and IOT. The manufacturing industry is
globally expected to invest $267 billion in IOT by 2020. Some of the trends
expected for IM&C industries by 2022 are –  1.     
aftermarket service revenue2.     
customer engagement and consumer-grade buying experience3.     
networks to increase the operational efficiency across the asset lifecycle4.     
business models5.     
and produce to increase manufacturing agility6.     
products, equipped with edge intelligence and IoT capabilities7.     
revenue through new services using IOT.8.     
software and firmware in products9.     
reality and augmented reality in daily operations10.  Big Data and machine learning in
manufacturing planning and scheduling These trends have evolved considering their
desirability and viability, based on the very assumption that manufacturing
companies globally want to:1.      
customer experience and satisfaction4.      
the transparency in business and market5.      
employee satisfactionBy 2019, 50% of
manufactures are expected to collaborate directly with consumers for new and
improved product designs through VR and product virtualisation, cloud-based
crowdsourcing, realising up to 25% improvement in product success rates. Also,
by end of 2020, one-third of all manufacturing supply chains are expected to
use analytics-driven cognitive capabilities hence, improving service performance
by 5 percent and cost efficiency by 10 percent. Another report from IDC in
November, 2017 states that 25% of manufacturers in selected sub-sectors by 2020
will have balanced production and through intelligent and flexible assets are
expected to achieve greater customization.     MARKET COMPETITION UPL Limited leads the ranking with revenue for the
fourth quarter of FY17 coming in 6.1% higher than the estimated figure of
Rs.5032 crore. UPL’s consolidated revenue for the Q4FY17 stand at Rs.5341 Cr
registering 20.5% yoy increase. If the sales figures are to be compared, the

sales numbers and a successful FY17 is due to growth of its African and Brazil
business despite various headwinds alongwith bumper export sales of its
products due to good monsoon. The future scopes for similar growth remain due
to Bayer tie up and the decision of the company to keep cash in hand as a war
chest for interesting opportunities. Bayer CropScienceplaces itself atsecond position in
Indian market, supported by its strong research capability and continued
release of patented product. Insecticide was one of the best performance in
this year with growth rate reaching 40%; additionally Bayer’s 2 novel crop
protection products Lesenta and Solomon have become very popular. With market
capitalisation of 15,675 Cr, Bayer CropScience registered a net profit of

part of Tata Group of Companies, had revenues of Rs.588 Crposted attributable
to its business restructuring and release of new brands leading to a stable
growth; its international sales which accounts for 30% of the total sales
benefited from the strong demand from Asia and Latin America, including Brazil,
having increased very significantly. The company launched 3 products, namely,
Cenator(fungicide for the management of sheath blight in Paddy), Pulito (a
broad spectrum fungicide on fruits and vegetables) and Odis(a broad
spectrum insecticide for the management of sucking pest).Indofil Industries with gross turnover of 1753.82 Cr
in 2015-16, ranks No.4; to cope with the change of the Indian agriculture and
agrochemical industry, Indofilby adjusting its strategy through shifting its
past focus on crop protection product into crop solutions and providing
selected product packages for different crops according to market demand home
and abroad has made into top 5 agro-chemical firms in the country. The company
this year entered Brazilian agrochemical market while launching newer products
like IMPRESSION (triple action based combination of Azole and Triazole).Gharda Chemicals achieved sales of INR 14 billion,
drive has helped India in developing itself as a hub for hi-tech manufacturing
as global giants such as GE, Siemens, HTC, Toshiba, and Boeing have either set
up or are in process of setting up manufacturing plants in India with Apple being
the latest addition to the list of companies. A major reason for such growth in
the incoming of global industries is due to the presence of more than a billion
customers in the Indian market and their increasing purchase power. Cumulative Foreign
Direct Investment (FDI) in India’s manufacturing sector reached US$ 70.51
billion by June 2017. Some of the recent
investments and developments in the manufacturing sector are as stated –
