The construction machinery sector in India is cautiously optimistic: Many infrastructure projects are to be completed in the coming years, and in the medium term the market is expected to regain the level of 2012. This all points to excellent prospects for the participants in the upcoming edition of BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA. The fourth International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles takes place from December 12 to 15, 2016 at the HUDA Ground in Gurgaon/Delhi.
Slight upturn in Indian market
In its recently published report entitled “Rebooting Indian Infrastructure—Indian Construction Equipment Industry Vision 2020”, the Indian Construction Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (iCEMA) presents a cautiously optimistic picture: India is still regarded as a growth market, the government is holding out the prospect of many new projects, and for the medium term the completion of a whole range of infrastructure measures is on the agenda. Igor Palka, CEO of bC Expo India, the company in charge of organizing BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA, sees good opportunities for the Indian market: “In India many planned projects stalled in the past, and some of them are now being driven forward again. For the construction machinery sector, for example, 11.8 percent growth is expected by the year 2020, to more than 80,000 units. That isn’t a dramatic rise, but it is nevertheless a very respectable outlook.” And this is a trend that will most certainly be continued at the next BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA in December.
