Develop an Effective India Strategy by Prioritizing States

Everything you need to know about structuring a business in India. Learn how to prioritize Indian states (B2B/B2C), why ‘state-level’ is the most effective approach, and which states represent the greatest opportunities for selected industries.

India is drawing increased international attention as one of the most resilient economies in an uncertain global economic environment. However, given the size and complexity of the market, there are substantial economic disparities within the country.

Additionally, gradual liberalization and rapid decentralization are exacerbating already-significant regional differences. These factors make a state-level strategy acutely important for India.

With this in mind, we developed a three-step framework for companies to prioritize and categorize states in India based on opportunity and business fit, allowing business leaders to make more informed decisions and strengthen their India strategic plans.
