What is your outlook for theconstruction equipment sector in the country?

Asignificant financial outlay announced by the Government in the recent unionbudget is a major move in bringing the much-needed boost to the ConstructionEquipment industry. The recently announced budget has made it conspicuous thatthe government is putting a lot of thrust on creating a rural infrastructure. Thiswill boost demand for road equipment.

Roads andHighways will be a key growth driver for the Construction Equipment Industryand critical to fulfilling the $5.0-trillion economy dream of India. It focuseson rural economy as the major contributor in the foreseeable future, with ruralroads development projects being in the forefront.

Withimplementation of large-scale projects, including projects of nationalimportance, the road equipment industry is on a path to gain momentum. Further,new growth drivers, such as interlinking of canals, railways, mining, and realestate are going to push the sales and utilisation of road equipment.

The IndianConstruction Equipment industry is also fully embracing the convergence ofdigital and traditional technologies with JCB India, a leading manufacturer ofEarthmoving and Construction Equipment, pioneering the way.


What are the segments that are continuingto drive the sales of Construction Equipment?

Roads andHighways continue to be the key growth drivers for the Construction EquipmentIndustry. The Rural Economy will be the key demand driver for the next manyyears. As rural further integrates, we are hopeful of seeing more action interms of building infrastructure in this sector. The Pradhan Mantri Gram SadakYojna has been one such program.

Also, with afocus on water, Har Ghar Jal and Conservation projects, lakes and reservoirsare further expected to boost demand. With large-scale infrastructure projects,such as Sagarmala, Bharatmala, and Jal Marg Vikas in the pipeline together withGovernment’s rising focus on urban rejuvenation and Railways, the long-termtrajectory looks positive.
