Anna : Definitely it will since the market analysis of the indians are very high compared to others. So they do get in 1st somehow. Anyway this is applicable for technological items only.

"If China starts to lose manufacturing contracts it will sneak up on the country and then by the time many realize this is happening it would be almost irreversible."

@Bolaji: I think China may still get to retain the existing contracts but it may not get a chance to get new ones because of the high labor costs. That would eventually hurt the economy in the long run.

@Himanshugupta: The expected growth rate seems good but I still feel other factors might come into play during the year which will affect the growth in Chinese economy. One of them is likely to be high labor costs in China and the other the move towards moving manufacturing back in the US.

Ariella, thanks. That's I mentioned that in technological era all such predictions or forecasting are based on several analytical method and interpretations at various level based on various factors. Nobody is going to believe such blind numerology or astrology.

@Jacob I don't buy into astrology, though I have met with a couple of people who do, which surprised me no end. One of them casts horoscopes for couples before she matches them up -- and no, she's not from India. Today we try to make predictions based on information, and we call it analytics. That's what is used for everything from weather to financial forecasts. Some even apply to solving crimes.On another board, someone mentioned that a detective series, Numb3rs was devoted to that principle.

@Rich Oh, I can say that here with tongue-in-cheek, but I couldn't pull off that sort of equivocation as my normal form of communication.

The one sure thing about predictions is that they will be wrong!

Ann, I think in general there would be some growth, but the economic crises in US and EU have its own impact. Most of the major consumers are from these countries.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see a new website from UBM, called "Supernatural Semiconductors," or "Technology Numerology." Well, looks like there'll be no apology for the astrology"

Rich, I don't know in a technological era, whether young generation believes in such super natural things. But old age peoples in most of the Asian countries, still prefers numerology & astrology for analyzing their person life.
