Indian and construction and infrastructure industryWe need to see infrastructure groundwork taking place on a massive scale in India. And the government needs to take concrete efforts to mobilise more funds for the space. World-class infrastructure holds the key for India to become a sustained development. Coupled with a quantum growth in the construction sector of the country, infrastructure development is significant for rapid growth across all sectors as it provides access to rural areas, easy approach to markets, besides opening up new regions for investment opportunities. With the backdrop of active new government initiatives, friendly policies and rising investment trends in the sector, the Indian construction sector offers promising growth trends and opportunities. The 12th Plan, which started in 2013 looks set to include $1 trillion for infra development, with around 50 per cent of this likely to come from private funds. The new government has initiated innumerable initiatives to lift the sector from its current dormant conditions.
Adding growth to PEBS PennarWith the initiatives of the new government, a positive atmosphere is created in the market. Mission “Make in India” also has significant effect, and Mr Rao expects a lot of investments coming up in industrial, railways, defence manufacturing, logistics hubs, new airports, sea ports, steel plants and also in rural and urban infrastructure segments. PEBS Pennar has been catering to these segments in the market and foresees significant growth opportunities in the coming 5 years.
X-FactorsCurrently, infrastructure is the main priority of Indian Government. The development of infrastructure is the main tool to achieving GDP growth targets. The sector needs huge finances and massive funding. But there is usually a major variation in the commission’s target and funds that are actually deployed. Nearly all of the infrastructure sectors present excellent opportunities for construction, with roads and highways, ports and airports, railways and power standing out as bright spots, with huge sums of investment planned. India’s economy is big and getting bigger. Liberal and supportive government policies coupled with deliberate strategies to promote infrastructure spells great opportunities for engineering and construction (E&C) companies in India. Along with construction, allied industries like cement and steel also will notice a rise in demand. Construction sector is likely to boom in the 12th Five-Year Plan.
