India Ranks 2nd in Ease of doing business as per GRDI 2016

June 6, 2016

India has jumped 13 positions from 2015 to rank second among 30 developing countries in 2016 on ease of doing business, according to a study topped by China. According to 2016 Global Retail Development Index (GRDI), which ranks top 30 developing countries for retail investment worldwide, a pick up in GDP growth and better clarity regarding FDI regulations have helped India achieve a second ranking.

As per experts, India's strong ranking reflects foreigner retailers' increased optimism in its retail market and its vast growth potential. India's retail sector has expanded at a compound annual growth rate of 8.8% between 2013 and 2015, with annual sales crossing the $1 trillion mark, according to AT Kearney, a London-based business consultancy.

India has also become the world's fastest growing economy. That coupled with a large population base and the easing of FDI regulations in the sector has made it an even more attractive market. However, infrastructure bottlenecks including labour laws, complex regulations, high labour attrition rates, and limited high-quality retail space remain areas of concerns for retailers.

India's retail sector has also benefited from the rapid growth in e-commerce. India is the world's second largest internet market and the increasing internet and smartphone penetration is contributing to the expansion of e-commerce.

 

As Indian consumers become more comfortable with shopping online, venture capital and private equity firms have boosted investment in the sector providing further momentum, the report said. The GRDI analyses 25 macroeconomic and retail-specific variables to help retailers devise successful global strategies to identify emerging market investment opportunities. The study is unique in that it not only identifies the markets that are most attractive today, but also those that offer future potential.
