Considering multiple industry growth factors like India becoming a global component sourcing hub for automotive parts from across the world for their operations, improved product development capabilities through in-depth R&D, higher investment in road infrastructure, a booming working population and middle-class income to drive the market, it is speculated that the IPO of Kranti Industries Limited will experience a heavy over subscription from the word go.
