With the promising growth of the construction industry in India, the goal of the conference was to raise awareness and quality standards by serving as a platform for CCMA to communicate effectively with government, industry bodies, customers and other stakeholders. Speaking at the occasion Dr. A.J Charles of Perma Construction Aids Pvt said, “High quality construction chemicals contribute towards sustainability and durability of a structure. The chemicals are key inputs for any construction activity – be it housing, roads, industrial complex etc to give strength and other characteristics to the structure increasing its lifespan. Though niche, the construction chemical market is witnessing rapid growth with the construction industry gaining momentum due to increased urbanization and focus of the government on infrastructure development.”
