INDUSTRY SCENARIO

Infrastructure sector is one of the key drivers of economic development in a developing country like India. In recent years, India has consistently increased investment on infrastructure from 5% of GDP in the 10th Five Year Plan period to 9% in the 11th Five Year Plan. India needs Rs. 31 trillion (USD 454.83 billion) to be spent on infrastructure development over the next five years, with 70% of funds needed for power, roads and urban infrastructure segments.

However, development in basic infrastructure is still relatively slower compared to other countries. The rapid growth of the Indian economy in recent years has placed increasing stress on physical infrastructure i.e. electricity, railways, roads, ports, irrigation, water supply and sanitation, all of which already suffer from deficit in terms of capacities as well as efficiencies. The infrastructure sector is mainly affected due to delay in project awarding, environmental clearance hurdles, land acquisition issues, slower execution, lack of cheaper financing options etc.

OUTLOOK

Sustained infrastructure development is expected to be one of the crucial factors for sustaining growth during the current decade. Significant investment in physical infrastructure will also lead to employment generation, increased production efficiency, reduction in cost of doing business and improved standard of living.

There was a significant increase of Rs. 70,000 crores in investment in infrastructure in 2015-16 over the previous year with a focus on railways and roads. Rising demand for infrastructure facilities given the rapid growth in urbanization, bulging middle-class and an increasing working-age population would warrant substantial increase in infrastructure investments during the current decade.

Apart from development of infrastructure facilities in existing cities/ towns, increased focus is expected on infrastructure development in new townships/ rural areas. Regional-urban development plans are expected to be made to identify new growth corridors. A substantial rise in rural infrastructure development, which will provide further impetus to economic growth in rural areas, will result in significant reduction in poverty. Increased investment in rural infrastructure will benefit the rural population through higher incomes, rise in employment opportunities and lower cost of basic goods due to improvement in transportation facilities. Nonetheless, improvement in rural infrastructure will need to be properly targeted to benefit the rural poor.

The Indian economy is one of the largest globally with a promising economic outlook on the back of controlled inflation, rise in domestic demand, increase in investments, decline in oil prices and reform-oriented policies, among others. For the construction sector, years of strained liquidity resulting from increasing working capital cycles and restrained lending by banks and aggressive bidding at low margins is expected to reverse with the government focused on creating transparent policies and innovative operational models to drive sectoral growth.

9. INDUSTRY SCENARIO

Infrastructure sector is one of the key drivers of economic development in the developing country like India. In recent years, India has consistently increased investment on infrastructure from 5% of GDP in 10th five year plan period to 9% in 11th five year plan. India's planning commission has projected an investment of US$ 1 trillion for the infrastructure in 12th five year plan. However, development in basic infrastructure is still relatively slower compared to other countries. The rapid growth of the Indian economy in recent years has placed increasing stress on physical infrastructure i.e. electricity, railways, roads, ports, irrigation, water supply and sanitation, all of which already suffer from deficit in terms of capacities as well as efficiencies. Infrastructure sector is mainly affected due to delay in project awarding, environmental clearances hurdles, land acquisition issues, slower execution, lack of cheaper financing options etc.

10. OUTLOOK

Sustained increase in infrastructure is expected to be one of the crucial factors for sustaining strong growth during the current decade. Significant investment in physical infrastructure will also lead to employment generation, increased production efficiency, reduction in cost of doing business and improved standard of living.

Infrastructure investment (as measured by Gross Fixed Capital Formation) is expected to surge to 12.1% of GDP by FY20 from 7.0% of GDP in FY11. Rising demand for infrastructure facilities, given the rapid growth in urbanization, bulging of the middle class and an increasing working-age population, would engender substantial increase in infrastructure investments during the current decade.

Apart from development of infrastructure facilities in existing cities/towns, increased focus is expected on infrastructure development in new townships/rural areas. Regional-urban development plans will be made to identify new growth corridors. A substantial rise in rural infrastructure development, which will provide further impetus to economic growth in rural areas, in turn resulting in significant reduction in poverty. Increased investment in rural infrastructure will benefit the rural population through higher income, rise in employment opportunities, and lower cost of basic goods due to improvement in transportation facilities. Nonetheless, improvement in rural infrastructure will need to be properly targeted to benefit the rural poor.

The Indian Economy in 2014-15 has emerged as one of the largest economies with promising economic outlook on the back of controlled inflation, rise in domestic demand, increase in investments, decline in oil prices and reforms among others. But the construction sector maintains a negative outlook due to strained liquidity resulting from lengthened working capital cycles and restrained lending by banks. Aggressive bidding at low margins has reduced potential surpluses from operations

The government has unveiled plans to invest US$ 137 billion in its decrepit rail network over the next five years, heralding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's aggressive approach to building infrastructure needed to unlock faster economic growth. Over the next year, India will increase investment by about a half to US$ 16.15 billion including funds raised by market borrowing.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

In the face of a global financial crisis and economic downturn, infrastructure sector plays an important role to counterbalance the slowing economic activity and lower consumption. It is believed that the policy support from the Government will help somewhat the beleaguered sector recover from the issues affecting the most.

The recent months have witnessed key investments and developments in India''s infrastructure sector. The Union Cabinet in February, 2014 gave its approval for declaration of around 7,200 kms. of State Roads as new National Highways. Other road development projects in the pipeline include existing National Highways network totaling 21,271 kms., which are not covered under any programmes/schemes as of now.

Industry growth is expected to remain strong over the forecast period (2014-2018), as a result of Government''s commitment to making infrastructural improvements and the implementation of the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012-2017), under which the Government expressed plans to invest INR 56.3 trillion (US$ 1.0 trillion) in various long-term development plans.

India''s economy slowed to 4.7% for the fiscal year 2013-14 in contrast to higher economic growth rates in 2000s. IMF projects India''s GDP to grow at 5.4% over 2014-15. However, the construction industry growth is expected to improve over the next few years, as a result of the Government''s commitment to improving the Country''s infrastructure. Our order books continue to be strong, we are very optimistic about future growth of the Company.

Outlook

The Union Budget 2010-11 continued to lay stress on infrastructure developm ent, citing it as one of the key catalysts in maintaining the economic grow thrate. The Finance Minister (FM) provided 4 6% (Rs.1,73,552Cr) of the total Plan allocation for Infrastructure Development in line with the yearly targets . Allocation for Road Transport was raised by over 13% to Rs.19,894 Cr, whereas allocation for improving Railway Infrastructure was increased by 6%.

In the light of the pivotal role that the Infrastructure Sector plays in enabling future growth, we believe that the government will continue to focus on infrastructure development in the country as was witnessed in the recent Budget. Moreover, in the long run, with the economy on a roll (India has annual average 8-9% grow thin the last 4-5 years), we expect the Infrastructure Sector to a ttract more funds not only from the dom estic market, but also from the international market. Other factors ncluding politic alintent, liquidity position, commodity and crude prices, structural and procedural reforms at various government body levels (like NHAI) are also well-placed to roll out the Indian infrastructure growth story ahead.
