India has overtaken the U.S. to become the second-most sought-after manufacturing destination globally, driven mainly by cost competitiveness, according to real estate consultant Cushman & Wakefield.

The rankings are determined based on four parameters: the country’s capability to restart manufacturing, business environment, operating costs, and the risks.
