Manufacturing has emerged as one of the high growth sectors in India. Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Modi, had launched the ‘Make in India’ programme to place India on the world map as a manufacturing hub and give global recognition to the Indian economy. India is expected to overtake Germany to become the fourth largest economy in the world by the end of the year 2026.
The new growth trajectory will result in the need for skills, other than just domain competency. Proactiveness and understanding of market competition will be an essential skill for success in the manufacturing sector. Indian players must develop a better strategy to understand their customers and the changing patterns, to remain competitive against China.
Professionals at middle and senior management level will have to acquire additional skills, other than just domain competency. Innovation, data analysis, competitive strategy, negotiation skills, understanding Industry 4.0, etc., will be a must to remain relevant in the highly competitive business landscape that manufacturing and engineering verticals thrive in.
