Why India? Unveiling Market Potential for Buy-and-Build Strategies

India is one of the most attractive markets for companies pursuing buy-and-build strategies, characterized by its robust economic growth, vast consumer base, and increasingly favorable investment climate.

As the world’s fastest-growing major economy, India offers a unique combination of scalability, diversity, and innovation potential. Here’s why India should be your next investment destination:

Economic Growth and Market Size

India’s economy is rapidly growing, driven by a young population, a rising middle class, and a digital revolution. The country’s GDP growth consistently outpaces other significant economies, offering a fertile ground for businesses looking to expand. With over 1.3 billion consumers, the vast and diverse market has numerous niches and opportunities for strategic acquisitions and consolidation.

Sectors with High Consolidation Potential

Technology and IT Services

With its global reputation as an IT and software powerhouse, India’s tech sector presents opportunities for strategic acquisitions, particularly in emerging technologies such as AI, blockchain, and IoT.

Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

The healthcare sector, including pharmaceuticals, biotech, and healthcare services, is ripe for consolidation, driven by increasing healthcare spending and a push towards healthcare infrastructure improvements.

Consumer Goods and Retail

A growing middle class with increasing disposable incomes makes the consumer goods and retail sectors attractive for buy-and-build strategies, with significant market penetration and brand consolidation opportunities.


Supported by government initiatives like ‘Make in India’, the manufacturing sector offers potential for acquisitions, especially in auto-components, chemicals, and textiles, expected for global competitiveness and export growth.

Regulatory Changes Enhancing FDI Attractiveness

In recent years, a slew of regulatory reforms have simplified FDI policies, enhanced the ease of doing business, and protected investor interests. The Indian government has liberalized FDI norms across various sectors, including defense, telecom, and retail, and implemented tax reforms to create a more investor-friendly environment. Such reforms not only ease the entry of foreign players. It also streamline the acquisition and consolidation processes.
