Exploring opportunities in India
India is an attractive place to do business. With more than 1.2 billion people, 572 million are under the age of 24, making it home to the world's biggest youth population. And according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), India's middle class will grow from 5% to 10% of the population today to 90% in 2039. This means India will have added 1 billion people – almost its entire current population – to the middle class.
Investor sentiment towards India is also returning. The World Bank recently raised India's gross domestic growth-rate projection for the next couple of years. This, coupled with India's new stable government, has increased confidence.
Today, India is about more than just IT and outsourcing. New sectors have appeared and the country is rapidly scaling up its infrastructure to help sustain growth. But challenges remain. While bureaucracy has reduced, it still presents barriers. Indian business dynamics are particularly focused on relationships. There are also skills shortages, complex laws and regulations, and problems of unreliable infrastructure.
