This study explores important determinants of Public–Private Partnership (PPP) in Indian Infrastructure. This study used secondary data for a period of eleven years (2005–2016) to observe the important determinants in PPP in Infrastructure in India. This study also examines the infrastructure scenario in India and its global comparison and tries to evaluate the impact of PPP on Infrastructure development. This study uses secondary data from various sources like, World Bank, Global Competitiveness Report, Department of Economic Affairs, PPP Cell, and Infrastructure Division to identify various factors to attract more PPP in Indian Infrastructure Sector. The findings from determinants of PPP analysis yield several insights about attracting PPP in Infrastructure sector and indicate that market size measured by Real GDP, Macroeconomic stability, Exchange Rate, Governance has a significant impact on determinants of PPP in Infrastructure sector.
