The Indian automotive industry has grown at a staggering pace over the last few years. The US$ 6.8 billion industry has registered a CAGR of 17% between 1998-2003 and is projected by ACMA (Auto Components Manufacturers Association of India) to grow at a 15% CAGR till fiscal 2012.

The opening up of the sector over the last decade has caught the attention of global auto majors as the only market rivaling China in terms of potential market size and growth opportunity.
