India’s middle class wants a better life – and what this means to you

If India continues on its current high growth path, incomes will almost triple over the next two decades, and the country will climb from its position as the twelfth-largest consumer market today to become the world’s fifth-largest consumer market by 2025.

A study by the McKinsey Global Institute suggests that if India can achieve 7.3 percent annual growth—a reasonable assumption if economic reforms continue—consumer spending will quadruple, from about 17 trillion Indian rupees ($372 billion) in 2005 to 70 trillion rupees in 2025. The dramatic growth in India’s middle class, from 50 million to 583 million people, will power this surge. 

Spending patterns will shift dramatically as expenditures grow rapidly on discretionary items ranging from personal products to consumer electronics. Incumbents will have to fight to retain their market dominance, while attackers could find lucrative ways to exploit the evolving tastes of India’s massive new middle class.
