With 3.49 million units sold in the passenger and commercial vehicle categories combined in 2020, India was the fifth-largest auto market.

Between FY16 and FY20, domestic automotive sales increased at a 1.29 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), with 21.55 million vehicles sold in FY20.The total number of passenger vehicles produced in FY21 was 22,652,108. The total production volume of passenger vehicles, three-wheelers, two wheelers, and quadricycles reached 2,214,745 units in October 2021 (excluding BMW, Mercedes, Tata Motors, and Volvo Auto).The automobile sector is currently confronting challenges in order to reduce liquidity risk and increase profitability, not only in India but globally.
