Post 1991, the liberalisation of the Indian economy by P. V. Narasimha Rao Government, it was strongly believed that, the 21st century would be of India. And, between 2004-14, India has established so, as the fastest growing economy in the world.
Strategically, China supported its core industry at a time when India opened up its economy allowing its private players to establish manufacturing sector across the nation, and, also, China has supported and created its strong market base in India thereby.
China, interestingly, has been catering to almost every need of Indian market, at all levels, at a highly competitive pricing, compared to the raw materials or products imported from other countries and also from those already available or manufactured in India, in some cases. Thus, during the 21st century, Chinese raw materials and products in the Indian market have become rampant, inevitable and unavoidable.
