PESTLE Analysis of India 2012:Lucintel Forecasts Robust Growth for Indian Economy

   January 1, 2013

India has experienced a steady GDP growth rate of 8% during the last five years. The subcontinent’s economy is expected to continue its growth momentum over the next five years. Strong domestic demand and a burgeoning middle class are expected to continue driving the Indian economy to new heightsduring the forecast period of 2012-2017.

Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, performed a Political, Economical, Sociological, Technological, Legal, and Environmental(PESTLE) analysis of India,and presents its findings in“PESTLE Analysis of India 2012.”

India is the second-most populous country in world,and its large reserve of human capital is crucial to the nation’s economic development. Itsgrowing, technically skilled work force draws international players to locate facilities there. The service sector is the major contributor to Indian GDP and the leading driver for economic growth. Industries in the service sector,includinginformation technology, telecommunication, and retail, aremajor segments that contribute to India’s economic expansion.

Lucintel’s report indicates that although the inflation and unemployment rates, which are both higher than planned,remain major challenges for Indian economy. Theexpanding middle class in India’s urban area is likely to help fuel India’sfuture economicgrowth. Political cohesion and economic reform program by successive governments,such as the opening of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)to more industries,are expected to offer growth opportunities.

One major threat to the Indian economy is political instability. The economy has huge potential, but a certain level of political uncertaintyhampers growth. National elections are scheduled in 2013-2014. After a new government is installed, more economic reforms are likely to be instituted.

Lucintel’s study, which provides a concise overview of the PESTLE analysis of India,outlines that friendly relationships with major developed countries such as the US and those in Europe, along with its neighboring countries including China and Pakistan, is likely to further boost international trade of the country.

The report also provides a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis and an examination of thepast, present, and future economic policies of India.
