Consumer and Industrial Products
The Consumer and Industrial products sector is vast in its import and includes both B2B and B2C businesses. India with its large domestic and young population is likely to be a growing market for goods and services. Therefore, this sector specially businesses with consumer connect and local brands is an area of key interest for us. This interest encompasses companies that are involved in the manufacture and sales of food/food products, beverages, household products, personal products, electricals and all products that directly touch the consumer.

The deal activity in the Consumer and Industrial products space has always been present and is likely to be there both in terms of volume and value in the future. Some of the growth drivers that can be attributed to this escallation are rising income levels of middle class, increased urbanization, increased demand from consumers for premium products and services in the rural belt.
