India is a country with a huge economy that is growing rapidly.
In 2021, India had a nominal GDP of $3.176 trillion, up from $1.676 trillion in 2010 and $468.4 billion in 2000.
For the July-September 2022 quarter, India’s economy expanded 6.3% year-on-year, slightly more than the Reuters survey forecast of 6.2% year-on-year, and substantially faster. than the growth rates of many leading nations.
India is also expected to grow substantially in the future.
According to S&P Global’s November 2022 forecast, India’s real GDP could grow an average of 6.3% per year from FY2021 to FY2030, making the country the third largest in the world. world by the end of the decade. Currently, the country is the fifth largest in terms of nominal GDP.
India’s population is also young, which gives the country another advantage.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of India writes in 2021: “India’s 1.3 billion people make it the second most populous country in the world, but with an average age of 29, it has one of the youngest populations.” As this vast resource of young citizens enters the workforce, it could create a ‘demographic dividend.’ The United Nations Population Fund defines a demographic dividend as economic growth resulting from a change in the age structure of a population, primarily when the working-age population is greater than the number of dependents.
The Ministry adds: “Some 62.5% of India’s working-age population is between the ages of 15-59, ensuring that India will have a demographic advantage until 2055. This is an attractive proposition for both local and cross-border investment.” of FDI. According to CII and EY, India has the potential to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) of US$120-160 billion per year by 2025.”
Growth of India’s Leading Banks
Given India’s strong economic growth, some of the major banks in India have also experienced growth.
One of India’s leading banks, ICICI Bank, for example, reported a 34.2% increase in net profit for its October-December quarter on the back of healthy loan growth. Net profit was 83.12 billion Indian rupees or $1.03 billion, up from 61.94 billion rupees in the same period a year earlier, and around the analyst estimate of 81, 25 billion rupees. The bank’s net interest margin for the quarter was 4.65%, higher than the net interest margin for the same quarter of the previous fiscal year of 3.96%.
For the fiscal third quarter, ICICI Bank’s domestic loan portfolio expanded 21.4% year-over-year and its retail loan portfolio increased 23.4% year-over-year. Corporate loans also increased 18.2% year-over-year. The bank’s deposits increased 10.3% year-on-year.
In general, the largest banks in India are likely to increase their assets in US dollar terms substantially over the next few decades as the Indian economy expands.
However, in terms of individual banks, whether a bank can increase its assets or sales depends on company-specific factors and how well the company is doing in terms of maintaining its overall market share. If there is an economic slowdown, the assets and sales of individual banks could decline.
In terms of fiscal year 2023, India’s Ministry of Statistics projects that India’s GDP will expand by 7% compared to 8.7% a year earlier. While the preliminary projection is lower than the previous forecast of 8% to 8.5%, it is still faster than the projected growth rates of many of the world’s largest economies for this year.
With more assets, Indian banks could potentially make more loans or finance more projects. If they make the right loans and finance the right projects, India’s economy could expand even faster.
