Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing

The Indian Government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign is perhaps the single biggest development in the Modi Government’s policy making to date, bringing a new mind-set in government, changing focus to fostering investment, innovation, protecting intellectual property, and building best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure. It aims to bring the share of GDP from the manufacturing sector up to 25% this decade, up from 16% in 2016. Sector specialisms include automotive manufacturer, green technology, defence and civil aviation, appliances and consumer electronics. Advanced engineering and manufacturing have long been strong in the UK, with world class research and innovation a key component of the country's global success and recognition. High value manufacturing sectors such as pharmaceuticals, automotive, aerospace, chemicals and electrical/electronic industries are particularly strong. For example, the automotives industry accounts for 11% of total UK goods exports and adding £11.9 billion to the economy (figures from UK Automotive Industry – SMMT). To simultaneously grow jobs and growth and improve the impact of the sector on the environment, business and Government are working to deliver on the UK's Net Zero by 2050 target and become a global science super-power. With an annual output of £183 billion (according to Make UK figures), the UK remains the ninth largest manufacturing nation in the world.
