Industry Analysis Service

The Industry Analysis Service is a powerful combination that brings together the
advantages of a database service and analysis. It provides both. It helps you remain fully
abreast of the trends in individual industries. The service covers around hundred industries.
It provides an up-to-date database and an incisive analysis of what the numbers speak.

The database is at the core of the IAS. It presents detailed data on

• Demand and Supply

• Prices
• Financial performance
• Investments etc. of the industries

Demand and supply includes production, trade, consumption and in some cases
inventories. Prices includes those in multiple markets and for multiple grades. The financial
performance includes quarterly growth in sales profits and profitability of companies in
the industries. CMIE's share price indices are the most broadbased and comprehensive.
They include sectoral indices. IAS provides these series. The database is available in the
form of long time-series. It provides the basic inputs required by any analyst to perform
his/her own analysis. IAS also provides news abstracts relevant for the industries covered.

The IAS also provides its own analysis of the individual industries. This includes forecasts
and descriptive analysis of the current trends. These analytical reports are available in
the form of PDF files. Such reports are prepared by CMIE every month. The forecasts are
updated every month to reflect changes, if any are required in the light of the new data. Thus,
the IAS blends the art of professional monitoring and scientific analysis.

The IAS is most optimally used when it is combined with Prowess

Bombay Stock Exchange is the oldest stock exchange in Asia with a rich heritage, now
spanning three centuries in its 133 years of existence. What is now popularly known as
BSE was established as "The Native Share & Stock Brokers' Association" in 1875.

BSE is the first stock exchange in the country which obtained permanent recognition (in
1956) from the Government of India under the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act
1956. BSE's pivotal and pre-eminent role in the development of the Indian capital market
is widely recognized. It migrated from the open outcry system to an online screen-based
order driven trading system in 1995. Earlier an Association Of Persons (AOP), BSE is
now a corporatised and demutualised entity incorporated under the provisions of the
Companies Act, 1956, pursuant to the BSE (Corporatisation and Demutualisation)
Scheme, 2005 notified by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). With
demutualisation, BSE has two of world's best exchanges, Deutsche Börse and Singapore
Exchange, as its strategic partners.

Over the past 133 years, BSE has facilitated the growth of the Indian corporate sector by
providing it with an efficient access to resources. There is perhaps no major corporate in
India which has not sourced BSE's services in raising resources from the capital market.

Today, BSE is the world's number 1 exchange in terms of the number of listed companies
and the world's 5th in transaction numbers. The market capitalization as on December 31,
2007 stood at USD 1.79 trillion . An investor can choose from more than 4,700 listed
companies, which for easy reference, are classified into A, B, S, T and Z groups.

The BSE Index, SENSEX, is India's first stock market index that enjoys an iconic
stature , and is tracked worldwide. It is an index of 30 stocks representing 12 major
sectors. The SENSEX is constructed on a 'free-float' methodology, and is sensitive to
market sentiments and market realities. Apart from the SENSEX, BSE offers 21 indices,
including 12 sectoral indices. BSE has entered into an index cooperation agreement with
Deutsche Börse. This agreement has made SENSEX and other BSE indices available to
investors in Europe and America. Moreover, Barclays Global Investors (BGI), the global
leader in ETFs through its iShares® brand, has created the 'iShares® BSE SENSEX India
Tracker' which tracks the SENSEX. The ETF enables investors in Hong Kong to take an
exposure to the Indian equity market.

BSE has tied up with U.S. Futures Exchange (USFE) for U.S. dollar-denominated futures
trading of SENSEX in the U.S. The tie-up enables eligible U.S. investors to directly
participate in India's equity markets for the first time, without requiring American
Depository Receipt (ADR) authorization. The first Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) on
SENSEX, called "SPIcE" is listed on BSE. It brings to the investors a trading tool that
can be easily used for the purposes of investment, trading, hedging and arbitrage. SPIcE
allows small investors to take a long-term view of the market.
BSE provides an efficient and transparent market for trading in equity, debt instruments
and derivatives. It has a nation-wide reach with a presence in more than 450 cities and
towns of India. BSE has always been at par with the international standards. The systems
and processes are designed to safeguard market integrity and enhance transparency in
operations. BSE is the first exchange in India and the second in the world to obtain an
ISO 9001:2000 certification. It is also the first exchange in the country and second in the
world to receive Information Security Management System Standard BS 7799-2-2002
certification for its BSE On-line Trading System (BOLT).

BSE continues to innovate. In recent times, it has become the first national level stock
exchange to launch its website in Gujarati and Hindi to reach out to a larger number of
investors. It has successfully launched a reporting platform for corporate bonds in India
christened the ICDM or Indian Corporate Debt Market and a unique ticker-***-screen
aptly named 'BSE Broadcast' which enables information dissemination to the common
man on the street.

In 2006, BSE launched the Directors Database and ICERS (Indian Corporate Electronic
Reporting System) to facilitate information flow and increase transparency in the Indian
capital market. While the Directors Database provides a single-point access to
information on the boards of directors of listed companies, the ICERS facilitates the
corporates in sharing with BSE their corporate announcements.

BSE also has a wide range of services to empower investors and facilitate smooth

Investor Services: The Department of Investor Services redresses grievances of investors.

BSE was the first exchange in the country to provide an amount of Rs.1 million towards
the investor protection fund; it is an amount higher than that of any exchange in the
country. BSE launched a nationwide investor awareness programme- 'Safe Investing in
the Stock Market' under which 264 programmes were held in more than 200 cities.

The BSE On-line Trading (BOLT): BSE On-line Trading (BOLT) facilitates on-line
screen based trading in securities. BOLT is currently operating in 25,000 Trader
Workstations located across over 450 cities in India. In February 2001, BSE introduced the world's first centralized

exchange-based Internet trading system, This initiative enables
investors anywhere in the world to trade on the BSE platform.

Surveillance: BSE's On-Line Surveillance System (BOSS) monitors on a real-time basis

the price movements, volume positions and members' positions and real-time
measurement of default risk, market reconstruction and generation of cross market alerts.

BSE Training Institute: BTI imparts capital market training and certification, in
collaboration with reputed management institutes and universities. It offers over 40
courses on various aspects of the capital market and financial sector. More than 20,000
people have attended the BTI programmes

Industry Profile Excerpt

The investment banking industry in the US is comprised of approximately 3,000 companies, with combined
annual revenue of about $100 billion. Major companies include Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.
Investment banking is heavily concentrated: the largest 50 firms hold 90 percent of the market. The
industry continues to consolidate.


Demand is driven by economic activity that results in company mergers, acquisitions, or public financing.
The profitability of an investment bank depends on its ability to accurately assess both the value of a
business transaction and the readiness of the market to buy the attendant debt or equity. Big firms have an
advantage because large customer transactions require firms with substantial financial resources. Small
investment banks can compete by participating in syndications and operating in regional markets or
specialized industries. Although labor-intensive, the industry produces very high value: average annual
revenue per employee at large firms is under $1 million.

The global financial crisis of 2008-2009 dramatically altered the landscape of the investment banking
industry. Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, the only large firms still intact, have changed their status
from investment banks to bank-holding companies. Both firms still engage primarily in investment banking,
but former industry leaders such as Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, and Lehman Brothers have either been
acquired or have filed for bankruptcy protection. The demise of these firms and the late 2000s recession
have likely ushered in a new ...

Indian Economy 2009

September 18th, 2008 | economics -

After several years of rapid growth, 2009, will prove a testing year for India.

Inflation Inflation continues to pose a threat. Inflation peaked at 12% in early August
‘08. Inflation, is being caused by rapid growth (demand pull factors) but, also the cost
push inflation factors (rising oil prices). Hopefully, the fall in oil prices and higher
interest rates will reduce inflation without causing too much of a slowdown.

Economic Growth. After reaching growth of 9.8% in 2007/08, growth is expected to

slow down to 7%. This might not be a bad thing as it will avoid inflationary pressures
building further. However, some worry the global credit crunch could reduce growth
much more.

Global Recession and Indian Economy. It appears that Europe, Japan and the US are
entering into recession. Falling house prices, crisis in the financial system, and lower
confidence could lead to a sharp downturn, with the worst still to come.
Many argue, that India’s growth is not so dependent on growth in the West. However, the
Indian stockmarkets have been hit by the global crisis. India’s growing service sector and
manufacturing sector would be adversely impacted by a global downturn. However, I still
feel that India’s economic success is not dependent on growth in the West, and at worst
India’s growth rate will be less than hoped for.

The Indian government still have a target of 10% growth for 2010/11, but, I think this
could prove unrealistic.

Challenges for Indian Economy in 2009

1. Getting inflation under control

2. Spreading the benefits of growth more equitably.
3. Completing investment projects which are essential for long term development of
4. Dealing with global financial uncertainty, which will make capital flows and
exports more difficult.

Sensex in 2009

After falling in 2008, the Sensex could offer one of the best returns for global
stockmarkets. India’s strong economic growth will buck the global trend for lower

Indian Rupee 2009

The Indian Rupee has had a surprisingly weak year. The Rupee has fallen from 39 Rupee
to 1$ in January 2008, to 44 Rupee in September. Real interest rates in India are still
negative, but, if the Indian inflation rate is reduced, and the government resist the
temptation to go all out for growth, the Rupee may rebound, at least against the dollar,
which will face more difficulties in 2009

The economy of India is the twelfth largest in the world by market exchange rates and
the fourth largest in the world by GDP measured on a purchasing power parity (PPP)

The country was under socialist-based policies for an entire generation from the 1950s
until the 1980s. The economy was characterised by extensive regulation, protectionism,
and public ownership, leading to pervasive corruption and slow growth.[6][7][8][9] Since
1991, continuing economic liberalisation has moved the economy towards a market-
based system.[7][8] By 2009, India had prominently established itself as the world's second-
fastest growing major economy.[10][11][12]
Agriculture is the predominant occupation in India, accounting for about 60% of
employment. The service sector makes up a further 28%, and industrial sector around
12%.[13] One estimate says that only one in five job-seekers has had any sort of vocational
training.[14] The labor force totals half a billion workers. For output, the agricultural sector
accounts for 17% of GDP; the service and industrial sectors make up 54% and 29%
respectively. Major agricultural products include rice, wheat, oilseed, cotton, jute, tea,
sugarcane, potatoes, cattle, water buffalo, sheep, goats, poultry and fish.[15] Major
industries include textiles, chemicals, food processing, steel, transportation equipment,
cement, mining, petroleum, machinery and software design.[15]

In 2007, India's GDP was $1.237 trillion, which makes it the twelfth-largest economy in
the world[16] or fourth largest by purchasing power adjusted exchange rates. India's
nominal per capita income of $1043 is ranked 136th in the world. In the late 2000s,
India's growth has averaged 7.5% a year, increases which will double the average income
within a decade.[7] Unemployment rate is 7% (2008 estimate).[17][18] Previously a closed
economy, India's trade has grown fast.[7] India currently accounts for 1.5% of World trade
as of 2007 according to the WTO. According to the World Trade Statistics of the WTO in
2006, India's total merchandise trade (counting exports and imports) was valued at $294
billion in 2006 and India's services trade inclusive of export and import was $143 billion.
Thus, India's global economic engagement in 2006 covering both merchandise and
services trade was of the order of $437 billion, up by a record 72% from a level of $253
billion in 2004. India's trade has reached a still relatively moderate share 24% of GDP in
2006, up from 6% in 1985.[7]

Despite robust economic growth, India continues to face several major problems. The
recent economic development has widened the economic inequality across the country.[19]
Despite sustained high economic growth rate, approximately 80% of its population lives
on less than $2 a day (PPP), more than double the same poverty rate in China.[20] Even
though the arrival of Green Revolution brought end to famines in India,[21] 40% of
children under the age of three are underweight and a third of all men and women suffer
from chronic energy deficiency.[22]
