According to industry body CII, the potential size of the design industry in India is INR 11,681 crore and is expected to reach INR 18,832 crore in the coming years. Of this, presently only a market worth of INR 2,100 crore is being realised, meaning more than 80% of the design potential is yet to be realised in India.

India has one of the fastest-growing automobile design industries in the world. Currently, it ranks 4th and is on its way to becoming a leading manufacturer of cars. Foreign investments and government initiatives in the sector have further fuelled its growth.

In view of these developments, the automobile industry is expected to see an 8-12% increase in hiring in the future. Identifying the need for quality automobile designers in India, Strate has introduced the Integrated Master in Design course with a specialization in transportation design.
