Consumption Thematic Fund

Domestic consumption is most important driver of economic growth in a large country.

Domestic consumption is also one of the most important themes of the India Growth Story. Young population and high percentage of working people in our overall population are the structural demand drivers that distinguish us from other large emerging markets, as far as consumption growth potential is concerned. According to Boston Consulting Group (February 2021), India’s domestic consumption is likely to triple by 2030, though there may be a lag of 1 or 2 years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
