Fuelled by strong growth prospects and easy liquidity conditions, private sector investors are expected to pump in a whopping USD 1.11 trillion into emerging markets including India in 2013, says a report.
According to the report by Institute of International Finance (IIF), international lobbying group for financial firms, private capital flows to emerging economies would rise to USD 1.11 trillion in 2013, a 3.5 per cent growth from an estimated USD 1.10 trillion last year.
It said the flows are expected to rise further to USD 1.15 trillion next year.
"The macroeconomic backdrop remains unusually favourable for private capital flows to emerging economies," the report said.
"...very easy monetary policy in mature economies and the prospect of poor returns is "pushing" money out of those markets...higher growth in emerging economies, combined with higher interest rates is "pulling" funds in," it added.
The report said private capital flows to emerging Asia including India, China and Indonesia should remain close to their 2011 high of USD 547 billion.
The share of emerging Asia in total private capital flows should average 46 per cent in 2013 and 2014, just short of the 50 per cent in the previous two years.
"FDI inflows to India will be lifted by the opening up of previously closed sectors and the withdrawal of controversial tax plans, although infrastructural deficiencies and administrative hurdles will remain dampening factors," the report said.
"The improvement in global sentiment from the third quarter of last year is reflected in revived foreign interest in the region's stock markets. In India, the resumption of the reform program is on course to lift foreign purchases of domestic stocks to USD 21 billion in the fiscal year ending March 2013, from USD 7.6 billion in 2011-12," IIF noted.
After investing a staggering USD 24 billion in Indian equities in 2012, foreign investors have infused USD 2.8 billion so far this year.
