FDI in India
The Indian government has been actively working towards reaching its goal of 100 billion U.S. dollars' worth of FDI inflows by 2020 through various policy and financial reforms in the investment processes. This seems to be working in India’s favor since the share of FDIs to the country grew by around 20 percent in 2020. According to a UN report in 2019, India was ranked among the top 20 host economies for FDI inflows. The global FDI inflows for fiscal year 2018 aggregated to over one trillion U.S. dollars, out of which about five hundred billion dollars were from the developing Asian region, including India.
Leading FDI investors and sectors in the Indian market
Singapore was the leading investor in the country with FDI equity investments amounting to over 100 billion U.S. dollars in the financial year 2021, followed by the United States of America and the Mauritius. The IT sector constituted the largest part in foreign direct investment equity inflows, with an overall amount of close to 26 billion U.S. dollars for fiscal year 2021, followed by construction, and the services sector.
