Transforming the India of Tomorrow: Fueling the Construction Industry for World-Class Infrastructure

construction equipment industry construction machinery solutions

India is poised to become the world’s third-largest economy by 2025, as per a study published in Lancet1. Driving this transformational journey is a multitude of growth drivers, including a growing construction industry that contributes nearly 9% to the Indian economy2 and is estimated to become the world’s third largest by 20223.

The construction industry is vital to India’s growth in more ways than just one. Aside from being integral to the GDP of the nation, it is also pivotal to the survival and evolution of an array of industries, in enabling the infrastructural growth that will fuel the nation’s aspiration to become self-reliant, apart from providing employment opportunities to millions of people.

After experiencing disruptions in the prevalent business environment, the industry is all set to rebound its growth trajectory at an estimated 11.6% in 20212. This will be fuelled by huge investments in infrastructure by the Government and private players. The Government has, in its budget, made its intent clear to support the private sector in building world-class infrastructure in India.

Government of India’s Schemes & Initiatives to Boost Construction Activities

    Union Budget 2021

  • Rs. 60,241 crore for road works3
  • Rs. 57,350 crore for the National Highways3

    Smart Cities mission

  • Smart infrastructure for 100 cities

    Bharatmala Pariyojana

  • Rs. 5.35 lakh crore to develop 34,800 kms of roads4

    Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)

  • Provide good all-weather road connectivity to unconnected habitations

    Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) – PMAY (U)

  • Housing for all in urban areas by 2022

    Jal Jeevan Mission

  • Ensure equitable water distribution in all houses

    Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT)

  • Provide basic civic amenities (e.g. water supply, sewerage, urban transport) in cities

    National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP)

  • Expected funding of approximately US$ 1.9 Tn over the period FY 2019-25 to provide world-class infrastructure to citizens5


Building a Robust India

With a mission to improve every citizen’s quality of life, the Government aims to provide world-class roads and highways that connects to the remotest regions, state-of-the-art aviation, ports, and shipping infrastructure that unlocks economic growth and new employment opportunities.

The first-of-its-kind infrastructure project, National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), launched by the Government opens up unprecedented opportunities for the nation’s infrastructural growth. Encompassing 8,000+ projects and sectors such as transport, logistics, water & sanitation, social and commercial infrastructure, the project will see an estimated funding of US$ 1.9 trillion5 during FY 2019-25.

The thrust on infrastructure augurs well for the construction equipment industry, which faced several challenges in the wake of business uncertainties, including disruption to supply chain network, increased fuel prices and input costs, and shortage of manpower. Already, the economy and construction industry are showing signs of recovery. FY 2021 witnessed the construction of 13,298 kms of highways i.e. 37 kms per day3 – a milestone by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways.

The surge in road and highway construction across the country has resulted in an increased demand for construction equipment, and Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Pvt. Ltd., a Hitachi Group Company, is meeting this huge demand by manufacturing an assortment of construction equipment ranging from excavators and compactors to crushers and backhoe loaders (BHL) to wheel loaders (WL), pavers, and much more. The majority of the equipment is being manufactured within the country, giving a fillip to the “Make in India” initiative.

Meanwhile, to ensure timely completion of construction projects, there is a huge demand amongst builders and planners for high-quality machines that can offer the twin advantages of enhanced productivity and fuel-efficiency. Meeting these needs, Tata Hitachi has pioneered hydraulics technology and fuel-efficient engines that are used in its efficient range of excavators. For instance, its Zaxis GI excavators use regenerative hydraulics for superlative output and energy-efficiency while Tata Hitachi’s TL340H wheel loader is India’s first hydrostatic wheel loader that utilizes superior hydrostatic technology as against traditional hydrodynamic technology to maximize fuel savings. In addition, the recently launched CEV4 compliant equipment stand at the vanguard of Tata Hitachi’s commitment to environmental compliance. These include the SHINRAI PRIME Backhoe Loader and the TL340H PRIME Wheel Loader.
