The Construction Industry in India - April 2007

India's infrastructure industry is currently going through unprecedented boom phase, largely due to the growth of the economy which is pegged to rise by 8- 9% annually. India needs to invest substantially to support such a growth in the infrastructure sector - Roads, Airports, Ports, Power and Transport Systems.

The infrastructure sector has seen major developments in the last 4 years but there is still a long way to go. India requires a total investment of 170 Bn - 185 Bn by 2012. With over 105 Bn investments promised by various private players in the next 5 years, India's infrastructure is set to improve rapidly with an estimated CAGR of 15%. India needs investments 37 Bn (Source: FICCIWorld Bank Report) every year for the next 5 years to support the planned infrastructure enhancement activities.

Construction Report - February 2006

The size of the construction industry in India is worth over USD 25 billion (15 billion) and accounts for more than 6% of GDP. It is also the largest employer in the country after agriculture sector, employing approximately 18 million people. This number would be far larger if the numbers employed by industries such as steel and cement were also included.

India is the second most populous country in the world with over 1 billion people and constitutes 16% of the world's population. There has been a significant growth of the urban population over the past decade. For example, there are:

6 cities with over 4 million (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad);
23 metro cities with over 1million; and
300 towns with up to 0.1 million

India is also the 7th largest country in the world and the second largest in Asia with a landmass of 3.29 million square km. The need for adequate transport infrastructure is therefore vital. The Indian government has attached a high priority to building and investing in the transport infrastructure sector, particularly in roads, ports, railways and airports.

Indian Construction: on a roll - October 2005

Construction of several world-class malls, offices and residential buildings in Gurgaon, Bangalore and Hyderabad have proved that Indian firms are capable of achieving global quality norms in construction.
What is also working in the favour of Indian construction companies is the nature of the business: projects are intensely labour intensive, and wages (especially white collar wages) form a substantial proportion of costs. This is where Indian firms have an edge.

INFRASTRUCTURE, Bangalore: Retaining its cutting edge - August 2005

A year back there were concerns that the word 'Bangalored' was going to acquire another meaning besides referring to workers in the west, particularly the US, being laid off because their jobs have moved to the southern Indian city. The new meaning proposed was that of a city's infrastructure, unable to cope with the growth in population and business, caving in. The concerns were but natural.

Bangalore's economic output has grown by 11.7% a year over the last decade, making it one of India's fastest growing cities. More than 100 companies, including 50 of the world's top Information Technology (IT) firms, outsource work from the city.
