This paper presents an in-depth analysis of how the growth in the Indian economy has affected the choices a company makes when determining its capital structure. The paper begins by noting the profound changes in the Indian economy over the past half century. Then, it describes the purpose of the research, which was to identify the extent to which a company's asset base defined as the production of tangible (i.e., manufacturing) or intangible (i.e., services) affects its capital structure choices. The study's methodology is outlined and the various formulas and equations used to determine this are presented. Additionally, the paper describes in detail the statistical analysis that it used and its various approaches and variables. These are further illustrated in numerous charts and graphs included in the paper. The paper concludes by stating that India is well situated to take advantage of an increasingly globalized marketplace in both the manufacturing and services industries, and enjoys a growing domestic market as well that will help fuel future growth in both sectors


Statement of the Problem
Purpose of the Research

From the Paper:

"Although there are some regulatory constraints still in place that are adversely affecting foreign direct investment and access to India's markets by other countries, all signs indicate that the recent economic growth will continue well into the future. For instance, according to U.S. government analysts, "India achieved 9.6% GDP growth in 2006, 9.0% in 2007, and 6.6% in 2008, significantly expanding manufactures through late 2008. India also is capitalizing on its large numbers of well-educated people skilled in the English language to become a major exporter of software services and software workers" (India 2009, 3). Notwithstanding these positive trends, India continues to be faced with the second largest population in the world at more than a billion people and a median age of just 25 years (India 2009), future employment needs require identifying what factors have contributed to the manufacturing and services industries' growth in recent years, a process that represents a timely and valuable enterprise and which is discussed further below."
