A rise in domestic investments has been one of the most significant contributors to the growth story of India. Domestic investments in India are divided into two parts – public investments and private investments. Private investments are further divided into two parts, which are household investments and corporate investments. Private domestic investments depend on a slew of factors – macroeconomic stability, high household savings, productivity, access to credit, resolution of non-performing assets, clearing up of balance sheets, etc.
Domestic investments and foreign investments in India work hand-in-hand to help the growth of the country. Growth in emerging economies like India results mainly from innovations that allow domestic sectors to catch up with cutting-edge technology. The process of catching up with the leader in any sector requires the cooperation of a foreign investor who is familiar with the leading technology, and a domestic entrepreneur/investor who is familiar with the local conditions.
The Indian private investing space has also been showcasing signs of maturity over the past few years. The market has revealed that new investments accounted for about 50% of VC transactions. The VC-to-PE pipeline has also become robust and consistent.
