The 'Indian Manufacturing' sector has the potential to elevate much of the Indian population above poverty by shifting the majority of the workforce out of low-wage agriculture.

Manufacturing sector is the backbone of any economy. It fuels growth, productivity, employment, and strengthens agriculture and service sectors. Astronomical growth in worldwide distribution systems and IT, coupled with opening of trade barriers, has led to stupendous growth of global manufacturing networks, designed to take advantage of low-waged yet efficient work force of India. 'Indian Manufacturing' sector is broadly divided into

  • Capital Goods & Engineering.
  • Chemicals, Petroleum, Chemicals & Fertilizers.
  • Packaging.
  • Consumer non-Durables.
  • Electronics , IT Hardware & peripherals.
  • Gems & Jewelery.
  • Leather & Leather Products.
  • Mining.
  • Steel & non-Ferrous Metals.
  • Textiles & Apparels.
  • Water Equipment.

With industrial output growing at larger scale, the manufacturing sector will be a major contributor to new employment and is likely to generate 27.95 million jobs by 2015, according to study.

The chamber said that the next most important source of new employment is expected to be trade with 24.24 million new jobs, followed by construction with a figure of 15.13 million. "Manufacturing will have the highest employment potential because after agriculture it accounts for the largest share of jobs at 12.5 percent among different divisions of economic activity. A faster growth of employment in it, therefore, would mean addition of a large number of jobs
