India's pharmaceutical industry has been growing at record levels in recent years but nowhas unprecedented opportunities to expand in a number of fields. The domestic industry'slong-established position as a world leader in the production of high-quality genericmedicines is set to reap significant new benefits as the patents on a number of blockbusterdrugs are scheduled to expire over the next few years. In addition, more and moregovernments worldwide are seeking to curb their soaring prescription drug costs throughgreater use of generics. These opportunities are presenting themselves not only in India'straditional wealthy client markets such as the U.S. and European Union nations but also inemerging economies with vast populations such as Africa, South America, Asia, and Eastern and Central Europe.
The share of Indian pharma companies in the total pie of approvals for generic drugs (called abbreviated new drug applications (ANDA) approvals in the U.S.) has risen steadily. In 2011 itself, more than a third of the ANDA approvals were by Indian firms. As a consequence, formulation exports from India, essentially generic drugs, have grown at 21 per cent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2005-06 and 2010-11. With about $150 billion worth of drugs set to lose patent exclusivity between 2010 and 2015, Crisil Research expects the growth momentum in exports to continue over the next five years, with exports growing at 14-16 per cent CAGR.

The Indian Power Industry is one of the largest and most important industries in India as it fulfills the energy requirements of various other industries. It is one of the most critical components of infrastructure that affects economic growth and the well-being of our nation.
India has the world’s 5th largest electricity generation capacity and it is the 6th largest energy consumer accounting for 3.4% of global energy consumption. Due to the fast-paced growth of the Indian economy, the country’s energy demand has grown at an average of 3.6% p.a. over the past 30 years.
According to a report by CII and KPMG, India's energy sector would provide investment avenues worth US$ 120-150 billion over the next five years. India's energy demand is estimated to increase five fold over the next twenty five years.

In terms of demographic profile, India remains one of the youngest nations in the world with 38.2% of its population in the 0-5 year age bracket. This translates into the Indian Education system being one of the largest educational systems globally with a network of more than 1.2 mn schools and around 31,000 Higher education institutes. Education, being one of the important determinants of human welfare of any nation, the GoI has accorded priority for the promotion of education especially primary & secondary education in India. Correspondingly, the government’s spend on education as a percentage of GDP stood at 3% while accounting for 11.3% as a proportion of all public expenditure. However, the GoI is faced with several hurdles in terms of penetration across all education segments viz: Pre- school, K-12, Higher education etc as well as reaching out to the students in tier-III cities and rural areas. The GoI has therefore emphasised on Public Private Partnership (PPP) in education so as to augment the literacy rate from 74% as per the Census 2011.
The educational segments i.e. Pre-school, K-12, Information & Technology (ICT) in schools and Higher education form the important constituents of the Indian education. Of the same, the Pre- school market in India still remains largely unorganised and under-penetrated. However, the ease of setting-up of pre-schools as well as the growing acceptability of pre-school concept in India augurs well for the industry. The K-12 institutes in India largely remain governed by the GoI accounting for 80.2% of the total 13.5 lakh schools in India. Of late, with greater interest evinced by the private corporates/ trusts / educational societies etc, the share of private institutions in the K-12 space has grown from 18.9% in FY07 to 19.8% during FY11. However, in view of the rising enrolments in higher education coupled with the growing variety of educational streams, the private sector participation is expected to grow to catch in the growing penetration levels.
CARE Research expects the size of the Indian Education System at US$ 102.1 bn with CAGR of 11.2% during FY11-15. Apart from the growth of educational segments as mentioned above, CARE Research expects the other trends such as GoI’s orientation towards PPP, entry of corporates and foreign educational institutions (especially in K-12 & Higher education), growing focus on the Distance education mode of learning and growing acceptability of the vocational courses to remain the key drivers to the growth of education in India.
At Flair Solutions, our strategic sector focus on the education industry helps us develop an in-depth understanding of clients staffing needs and provide clients with an informed view and industry-tailor our service responses.

Of the US$ 1,025 billion, 50 per cent is expected to come from private sector, whose investment has been 36 per cent in the Eleventh Plan.
According to investment banking company Goldman Sachs, India's infrastructure sector will require US$ 1.7 trillion investment in the next 10-years. With a view to streamlining and simplifying the appraisal and approval process for public private partnership (PPP) projects, a Public Private Partnership Appraisal Committee (PPPAC) has been constituted under the chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Economic Affairs and Secretaries of Planning Commission, Department of Expenditure, Department of Legal Affairs and the concerned Administrative Department as its members. The project proposals are appraised by the Planning Commission and approved by the PPPAC.

India has become one of the fastest growing economies in the world over the last two decades, undoubtedly aided in this performance by economic reforms. The striking aspect of India’s recent growth has been the dynamism of the service sector, while, in contrast, manufacturing has been less robust. The Manufacturing sector’s contribution to the GDP has stagnated at 16%, raising questions about India’s development model, including its sustainability, especially for generating adequate employment.
Currently, India’s manufacturing sector contributes about 16% to the GDP, and India’s share in world manufacturing is only 1.8%. India’s growth has been on the back of a booming services sector which contributes 62.5% of the GDP. These statistics clearly indicate that while manufacturing has not been the engine of growth for the Indian economy, it now needs to grow at a much faster rate. With changing global realities, the manufacturing sector will need to be the bulwark of employment creation over the next decade, in contrast to current employment of only 9% of India’s working population. India’s long touted demographic dividend can only then be sufficiently exploited through the systematic growth of this sector.
