Top 10 Automotive franchise businesses in India for 2023

Written by: Resham Daswani     


Though the automobile industry has faced various challenges over the year, it still shows good potential for growth and is expected to reach $300 billion by 2026, with a combination of the production of cars, electric vehicles, tires as well as car spare parts.  These predictions are giving rise to good opportunities for automotive franchises in India which specialize in manufacturing electric motorcycles, e-mobility, and energy, and developing technology and car components in India. 


It can also be observed that the number of car owners in India is constantly on the rise, due to the growth of population as well as the rise in incomes of the middle class.  Not only car production has seen tremendous growth, but owning a car also requires maintenance and services like repair, cleaning, and painting.  Thus, there is a rise in automobile service franchise businesses in India, which is also one of the most prospective ones across the country today.  When we compare the new car sales vs the used car market, it can be observed that the number of used cars is much bigger than the number of new ones.  This leads to the development of the car detailing franchise segment in India.  Now that we have observed what the Indian automobile market segments look like, let us see:
