The automotive industry is set to change more in the next 5 years than in the past 50. The Indian auto-industry is at the helm of this change by becoming the 4th largest in the world with sales increasing 9.5 per cent year-on-year. Several initiatives by the Government of India and the major automobile players in the Indian market are expected to make India a leader in the two-wheeler and four wheeler market in the world by 2020.
