Summary

 

India’s automobile industry is at crossroads. An under-penetrated market for most automotive segments is the open horizon. A host of structural and regulatory changes the monitorables for investments and growth. The future looks electric, provided these challenges are surmounted.

 

Automakers are racing towards faster adoption of regulatory norms and transition to higher emission standards. The change in diesel pricing policy, rapid emission and safety norm transitions, bottlenecks in financing, and emergence of cab aggregators have continually thrown spanners in the works. Even as the industry is barely coming to terms with these, the future dictates other pressures. India tops the list of polluting cities of the world. Making it breathable will preoccupy state and central governments over the next decade.

 

The latest draft electric vehicles (EV) policy from centre calls for only EVs on the roads from 2030. Multiple state-level policies announced by Delhi, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh are also proof that transition is here.

 

How is this about to rejig the larger ecosystem? Viability of ecosystem partners such as petrol pumps, automotive dealerships, service stations are all expected to be in the churn. Business models of auto and auto component players, as well as their growth prospects, will see some sparks, too. Given all this,financial institutions and investors with exposure to the automotive value chain will need to understand the dynamics set to emerge in the EV space, more urgently than ever.
