1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT:

a. ECONOMY & MARKETS:

Financial intermediaries like non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) have a definite and very important role in the financial sector, particularly in a developing economy like India. NBFCs play an important role in promoting inclusive growth in the country, by catering to the diverse financial needs of bank excluded customers. Further, NBFCs often take lead role in providing innovative financial services to Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) most suitable to their business requirements. The NBFC sector has continuously played a critical role in encouraging growth of the Indian economy and hence needs to be nurtured appropriately. This research paper mainly highlights the role of NBFCs in promoting economic growth of India. It also sets forth various strengths, opportunities, challenges and problems faced by this sector and the way forward.

2. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW:

i. Financial Sector:

Indias financial services sector has grown from strength to strength, built on prudential lending practices, robust regulatory environment and sound technology base, and has ably met the aspirations of the vast population and enabled economic activities. While commercial banking stays at the forefront of the financial system, the growing pie of financial services is divided across specialised players extending customised services to different customer segments. The competitive landscape of financial services sector has witnessed rapid growth in the last couple of decades. This movement is taking place on the back of market forces enabling inclusive growth, meeting sectorial thrust, leveraging policy initiatives and the ability to attract cost effective financial resources.

3. OPPORTUNITIES & THREATS & OUTLOOK:

a. OPPORTUNITIES

The success of NBFCs can be clearly attributed to their superior product lines, lower cost, broader and effective reach, robust risk management capabilities to check and control bad debts, and proper comprehension of their customer segments. Not only they have displayed success in their conventional citadel (passenger and commercial vehicle finance) but they have also managed to build significant assets under management (AUM) in the personal loan and housing finance sector which have been the bread and butter for retail banks. Moving ahead, the latent credit demand of an emerging India will permit NBFCs to bridge the gap, particularly where traditional banks have been cagey to serve.

• Exposure to global practices has made the Indian customer more discerning and demanding. There has been a clear shift towards those entities that are able to offer products and services in the most innovative and cost efficient manner.
