Indian multinational enterprises (MNEs) are rapidly growing in the world economy. This chapter explores the growth trajectory of Indian MNEs from an international business perspective. It investigates the growth of Indian MNEs in relation to the liberalisation of the Indian economy. Since liberalisation has been used as a tool for growth by many developing countries in Asia (Greenaway et al. 2002, Khanna & Palepu 2010), the growth trajectory revealed in this chapter may also be applicable to MNEs originating from other developing countries in Asia. The growth trajectory explored in this chapter is split into two periods: 1) growth during the pre-liberalisation period; and 2) growth during the post-liberalisation period.
