The eighth edition of the Grant Thornton India meets Britain Tracker, developed in collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry, identifies the top fastest-growing Indian companies in the UK as measured by percentage revenue growth year-on-year.

Despite Brexit and COVID-19 challenges, the contribution Indian companies make to the UK economy increased on almost every measure in our most recent research. As they emerge from the pandemic, both countries are focussed on forging an even deeper partnership, both bilaterally and on the global stage. Research findings demonstrate strength of the UK-India bond.
