However, the industry is facing a heavy headwind amidst the global economic downturn and trade war between China and the US. Moreover, there are several other factors at the regional level that are affecting the industry growth rate in a particular region. For instance, factors such as raising GST on automobile vehicles and mandatory implementation of BS-VI from April 2020 are responsible for the decline in the automotive industry growth rate in India.
