This book focuses on Indian

manufacturing industries and analyses the impact of inward foreign direct

investment on the domestic sector on the one hand, and exports and outward

foreign direct investment by Indian companies on the other. Although the

emphasis is mostly general, specific industries, such as the automotive

industry or the wind energy sector are also explored. The differences between low

and high technology industries are also addressed.

In terms of theoretical setting

and analysis, the book draws both from international business and industrial organization

literature. The various characteristics of Indian industries, such as the

determinants and impacts of R&D, the effects of spillovers, the drivers of

productivity and technical efficiency are thoroughly researched employing

appropriate quantitative methodologies that are relevant to the specific domain

and topic under investigation. The book also focuses on the bearing of

policy on promoting manufacturing industries in India and is therefore of

interest to researchers, industrialists and policy makers alike.
