The current government’s focus on the infrastructure sector, connectivity and urban transportation will pave the way for the construction equipment sector to flourish and grow.

In your opinion, how will the local market develop in the medium term?
The latest union budget has laid down a lot of emphasis on infrastructure development and have allocated large funds for its development. The budget allocation for railways, roads and irrigation will drive the construction equipment sector. The sector is expecting a strong double digit growth with an estimation to reach to over 80,000 units by 2020 from its current levels of 52,900 units. This demand will be largely driven by the roads sector, mining and urban infrastructure development. bauma CONEXPO INDIA will definitely be a contributor to this growth story by bringing all stakeholders from the private and government sector under one roof.
