DCX Systems IPO Review – Industry Overview

The defense manufacturing industry in India is an integral segment of the country’s economy. To date, India has been among the top importers of defense equipment. However, the massive focus on ‘Make in India’ is set to change this.

Recent initiatives like an increase in foreign direct investment (“FDI”) in the Indian defense sector from the current 49% to 74% under the automatic route are anticipated to be key drivers and growth opportunities for the market.

The Indian aerospace and defense sector is poised to attain a value of USD 70 billion by 2030. While the Indian Defence segment plans to achieve a turnover of ₹ 1.75 trillion and exports worth ₹ 35,000 million are aimed by the year 2025.
