What are the major challenges faced by construction equipment industry? Everywhere, the construction industry faces problems and challenges. However, in developing countries like India, these difficulties and challenges are present along with a general situation of socio-economic stress, chronic resource shortages, institutional weaknesses and a general inability to deal with key issues.There is also evidence that the problems have become greater in extent and severity in recent years. Delay in infrastructure projects because of time and cost overruns is one of them. Shortage of funds, environmental concerns and delay in government clearances added to this. Project delays have been caused due to land acquisition challenges, causing major investment deferrals by companies. There is also a lack of structured regulatory and policy framework for PPP models which needs to be addressed.
