The good news about the consumer durables market in India is that it is expected to double at 14.8 per cent CAGR to reach US$ 12.5 billion in FY15 from US$ 6.3 billion in FY10. The bad news is that not enough trained people are available to fill the job vacancies. But more about that later.

The upswing for this industry is due to several factors. Mainly because more and more young people are earning higher incomes. With no liabilities or responsibilities early in their life, the disposable component of young peoples’ incomes has been on the rise. This disposable income finds a channel in the demand for consumer durables in India.
