Key Findings
While India will witness a high growth in population on one side, great progress will be witnessed in the area of connectivity. It is anticipated that around billion devices would be connected in 2025. This will not only include mobile phones and tablets but also other connected devices, such as smart TVs.

India’s digital economy will explode with the proliferation of devices, and estimates for India’s Internet economy (as measured by total ICT spending) to be $ billion in 2020. The Internet economy will account for nearly % of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP).

Online retail will emerge as one of the fastest growing industries in India, with a market potential of $ billion by 2025 that accounts for nearly % of total retail. This growth will compel many retailers to move from a ‘bricks’ model to a ‘bricks and clicks’ model that amalgamates online channels with brick and mortar stores.

India will emerge as a reliable and affordable satellite launch service provider and manufacturer for the world. India can deliver a satellite in approximately months, against the global average of months. By 2020, India will launch satellites, space missions, and launch vehicles.

Mobile apps downloads in India will reach billion apps by 2020. Key mobile-based industries such as mobile banking and governance in India would benefit as a result, with a consolidated value of $ billion by 2020.

India's GDP will reach $ trillion by 2020, but holds the potential to reach nearly $ trillion if investments and manufacturing growth are more aggressive than expected. In the aggressive growth scenario, India could displace the UK and become the 5th largest economy by 2025 from its current position as 10th.

India will gradually shift from a services-based economy to an industry-driven economy by 2025 with increased contribution from industries and the manufacturing sector. India’s manufacturing sector, in terms of gross value added to GDP (at the current growth rate), could reach $ billion by 2022 and contribute % to GDP.

Maharashtra would account for % of the country's total GDP, and the top states will account for % of country's GDP in 2020.

India is expected to become one of the global leaders (top 5) in at least big markets of the future. It will be the 5th largest exporter in the globe and the largest manufacturer of chemicals. It will be also become the largest consumer market for luxury goods and technology services, such as direct-to-home TV and mobile apps.

India will become the 3rd largest automotive market by 2025, with nearly million car sales during the period. It will become the major manufacturing hub for cars in Asia with the likes of Hyundai expanding manufacturing in India. Three out of two-wheelers will be an electric vehicle.
