Annual Outlook 2020

It is time for us to bid adieu to the uncertainty of the teens (2010s) and gear up to welcome the promise of the Roaring Twenties (2020s).

A century ago, ‘Roaring Twenties’ was a term given to the 1920s - a decade of economic growth and widespread prosperity in developed countries like North America, Europe and Australia, among others. The period was characterised by recovery from wartime devastation and deferred spending, a boom in construction and rapid growth of consumer goods like automobiles and electricity, signalling a large, positive change in the economies.

We expect the next decade to be a time of similar positive change for India. An opportunity to learn from its teens and set into motion its journey towards becoming a USD 5 trillion economy. In the teens, we saw the government implement a host of policy initiatives like the Goods & Services Tax (GST) and the Bankruptcy Bill that were focused on streamlining business activity in the economy. However, even as we began to reap the benefits of these initiatives, a conflation of global and domestic events affected the consumption cycle and growth in the country.

The recently announced government measures like the cutting of corporate tax rates, labour reforms and de-criminalising of aspects of the Companies Act, coupled with conducive global liquidity factors could act as building blocks for the economic recovery in the upcoming decade. This growth is incumbent upon the successful implementation of these measures and other such initiatives that can provide a fillip to manufacturing and drive consumption. In this year’s Annual Outlook, we take a closer look at the themes that could play out in the year ahead and help build the base for India’s Roaring Twenties.

We expect to see further formalisation of the economy and a more rapid migration towards the financialisation of savings. Moreover, a focused approach by the government to invest in human resources and import substitution could add muscle to the economic recovery and ensure that growth in the upcoming decade is built on a strong and enduring foundation. Most importantly, ESG is not just a buzzword anymore. Investors, policy makers and corporates are warming up to the idea of sustainable and responsible investing. Organisations and stakeholders will be required to adapt to the new norms of providing smarter, cleaner and healthier products and services.

While we expect India to witness a gradual, but firm recovery, we will continue to keenly observe global developments that could have a local impact.

At BNP Paribas Asset Management India, we strive to keep an eye on the changing landscape. Changes, that create opportunities for delivering long term, sustainable growth for our investors and partners.

We hope that this Annual Outlook is a testament to that commitment and makes for an enriching read.
