Jasmeet Singh, Head - Corporate Communication and External Relation, JCB India.
Roads and Highways sector has been and continues to be one of the major drivers for the ECE industry. Other sectors such as Railways, Airports, Inland Waterways etc are also integral in driving the growth. However, more needs to be done in these sectors to ensure sustainable growth. Irrigation, real estate and mining are a few other sectors that have to start progressing to make the demand sustainable.
The construction equipment market has shown growth in the past couple of years, primarily because of the government's investments in the infrastructure sector, strategic budget allocation in the last three consecutive budgets and a number of projects getting announced.
Government is taking strategic actions to propel growth and we are hopeful that these sectors will also start performing in the future.
