Construction in India, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021
In real terms, the Indian construction industry registered an average annual growth rate of 3.5% during the review period (2012–2016). This growth was supported by the 12th Five-Year Plan 2012–2017, under which the government invested heavily in infrastructure, industrial parks and residential buildings. In addition, government flagship programs such as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission, the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) and Indira Awas Yojana supported review-period growth.
The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2017–2021), driven by investments in residential, infrastructure and energy projects under flagship programs such as the 100 Smart Cities Mission, Housing for All 2022, the Atal Mission for Urban Rejuvenation and Transformation (AMRUT), the National Skill Development Mission (NMSD), Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), Make in India, and Power for All (PFA) by various governments.
In 2015, the government launched the Smart City Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme. Under the Smart City Mission, the government plans to develop the infrastructure of 100 selected cities with an investment of INR480 billion (US$7.2 billion), whereas under the AMRUT scheme it plans to spend INR500 billion (US$7.4 billion) to develop 500 cities by 2022.
The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.16% over the forecast period; up from 3.95% during the review period.
