Recent performance of construction industry in India
After a continuous phase of market sluggishness and recession, the construction sector is certainly on the verge of a turnaround now. The sector received a boost with renewed focus on road building from the new government and as a result the market grew by 16 per cent in 2015, and further by 39 per cent to peak in 2016. “With the introduction of GST which aims to bring one uniform tax across the country, eliminating several layers of tax collection, things were quite confusing in the beginning but gradually things took their place. Now, with the revision being made in the slabs, CE industry is again put in 18 per cent slab which is a positive change for the industry,” states Shalabh Chaturvedi, Head of Marketing, CASE India.
However, he adds, “There is still a massive amount of work yet to be done in the country, and this will call for large volumes of equipment to complete it. We are ready with our range of construction equipment products and considering the set of conditions prevailing in the country and other foreseeable factors at this moment, we expect the market will follow an upward trend in the coming years as well.”
