  • Most of us know that global demand of Indian hairs is growing exponentially. This has made India as the largest exporter of hairs. Even, world’s largest ecommerce stores couldn’t refrain themselves by encashing the opportunity; Alibaba.com has identified this sector as one of the fastest growing businesses in Western countries. Every year, India exports over $415 million worth of hairs, the largest chunk of this going to south pilgrims, especially those who pay a visit to Tirupati. Nearly 40,000 pilgrims are believed to donate their hairs every day. By 2020, the industry is estimated worth $750 million, creating a huge opportunity for businessmen.
  • In last one decade almost every developed economy worldwide suffered from recession. India, however, remained few of those blessed countries that either didn’t suffer from the global melt-down or were affected the least. The strengthened economy of India has attracted many overseas brands to venture into the market, giving Indian consumers a fleet of shopping options. According to Boston Consulting Group research, indian consumer had spend $991 billion in 2010 and this figure is expected to surge up by nearly four folds to $3.6 trillion in 2020.

Nearly 18% of total cow numbers worldwide are in India.
  • Work hard, party harder! Probably, this mantra is seeded in Indians till core. Most of Indian professionals are service men but the consumption of alcohol is even more popular among people. Per capita whisky consumption in India is lower than many other countries though; about half of the world’s whisky consumption in 2012 happened in India. Indians consumed about 1.2 million liters of whiskey in 2012.
  • For developed countries, the biggest concern is growing population of old-age people. In contrast, the young-age population in India, 15-34 age group, is expected to rise from 430 million to 464 million in 2021. This will make India the youngest country by 2020.
  • The combined net-worth of 25 people in India is almost equal to Ukraine’s GDP. India’s top 25 richest people have  a combined net worth of $174.8 billion. The richest man in India, Mukesh Ambani, alone contributes $24.2 billion to this.
