NEW DELHI: India, the world’s fifth largest economy in the world, is likely to overtake Japan to become Asia’s second largest economy with a GDP of $ 7.3 trillion by 2030, S&P Global Market Intelligence said in its latest issue.
After two years of rapid economic growth in 2021 and 2022, the Indian economy has continued to show sustained strong growth during the 2023 calendar year.
India’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow 6.2-6.3 per cent in the fiscal year ending in March 2024, being the fastest-growing major economy this fiscal year. Asia’s third-largest economy grew by a stellar 7.8 per cent in the April-June quarter.
“The near-term economic outlook is for continued rapid expansion during the remainder of 2023 and for 2024, underpinned by strong growth in domestic demand,” S&P Global said.
The acceleration of foreign direct investment inflows into India over the past decade reflects the favourable long-term growth outlook for the Indian economy, helped by a youthful demographic profile and rapidly rising urban household incomes.
