The Indian automotive industry is booming: growth in the sales volume in 2022.

The Automotive Industry has a significant contribution to the Indian economy. With a 7.1% GDP contribution to the Indian economy, this sector plays a crucial part in India’s overall growth and development. Due to various situations like Covid-19 and supply chain disruptions, this sector was going through a rough phase for the past few years. But, now businesses are slowly getting back to the growth phase.

In March 2022, the automotive industry in India recorded a double-digit growth rate. After fighting adverse situations like Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the automobile sector indicated recovery and satisfactory growth. In April 2022, the registration of vehicles increased by 37% with the Regional Transport Offices (RTO). Although the increase is still 6% less than the sales volume before the Covid-19 Pandemic, the sector shows signs that everything is getting back on track. 

Different categories like passenger vehicles (PV) recorded a 12% growth, and tractors observed a 30% growth in their retail sales. The axle load norms introduced in 2018 resulted in a tough time for commercial vehicles. But in 2022, commercial vehicles are also showing signs of recovery.

Here are a few Indian automobile giants and their growth in 2022:

  1. Tata Motors: Tata Motors, one of the biggest Indian car manufacturers led by the great industrialist Ratan Tata, performed very well in 2022. According to a report, they sold around 45,197 in June 2022, with a year-on-year growth of approximately 87%.
