India continues to remain the fastest growing major economy in the world in 2018-19, despite a slight moderation in its GDP growth from 7.2 per cent in 2017-18 to 6.8 per cent in 2018-19. On the other hand, the world output growth declined from 3.8 per cent in 2017 to 3.6 per cent in 2018. The slowdown in the world economy and Emerging Market and Developing Economies (EMDEs) in 2018 followed the escalation of US China trade tensions, tighter credit policies in China, and financial tightening alongside the normalization of monetary policy in the larger advanced economies.
Service sector is the most dynamic sector in the economy and has remained the key driver of economic growth along with being a major contributor to Indian Economy.
The spa industry continues to prove itself as thriving market, in fact it is estimated to grow twice as fast as markets in the United States and Europe. India is estimated to be the second largest consumer market in the world.
