Four outliers to boost India’s growth journey
India has become the fifth largest stock market in terms of market capitalisation in the world from ranking tenth a decade ago and is poised to become the world’s third largest economy and stock market by the end of this decade.
“Accessing tech solutions have increased dramatically, including low cost payment via UPI and I never thought I would be able to walk out and not have my wallet in place and just going around with my mobile phone. Of course we have already given to the world in terms of tackling Covid, we are the world’s third largest in terms of vaccine production,” said Vikaas M Sachdeva, MD at Sundaram Alternate Assets in a conference addressing points on why India is at a crucial point of growth.
The report stated four major themes -- consumer discretionary, financial inclusiveness, phygital and manufacturing which would emerge as outliers in the country’s future growth.
Under consumer discretionary, the number of households earning more than $35,000 per year is likely to rise fivefold in the coming decade, to over 25 million, shared the report.
Another outlier that would drive growth for the country in the coming years is financial inclusiveness where organized lending companies that lend to the large, underserved population, where the majority opportunity lies would play an important role. These companies have a strong presence in tier 2-3 cities and have secured lending books.
The phygital theme would include consistent growth by companies that leverage tech platforms and online penetration.
On the manufacturing side, sectors with high Indian exports like the specialty chemicals sector, consumer electronics and auto ancillaries will add to the growth journey.
