Excavator Market of India Touching New Heights

There is optimism for manufacturers of crushing, screening, and mineral processing equipment as the market opens up for renewed activities in mining and infra construction.

Increase in mining activities (coal, iron ore, metal, and minerals), requirement for aggregates from the fast paced development of the road & railway sectors, expansions in cement and refinery plants etc, greater use of manufactured sand following the ban on river sand mining, the requirement for compact and more rugged plants for use in hilly regions, and demand for mobile plants for faster construction of larger projects are factors that are driving the manufacturers to invest in R&D to come up with more tech-rich machines and be competitive.

Many manufacturers are undertaking R&D to come up with well-designed, robust, and reliable machines that operate safely and with minimum downtime. They are considering modular designs for their plants for quicker installation and commissioning, and even customisation to improve plant efficiency. There is a strong focus on use of improved technologies in their machines to reduce carbon emissions, and hybrid models that reduce operating cost by using green energy and thereby improve the environment.

Manufacturers interviewed by Maria R. in this article say that they are optimistic of long-term and sustained demand for crushers and screens. According to them, initiatives like the Indian Government’s National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) plan, policy reforms in mining, recycling of C&D waste, bio-mining for zero-waste and waste-to-energy under the Swachh Bharat Mission, etc, are presenting opportunities that they are keen to cash on. In the following pages, they share their views on the growth drivers, the challenges, how advanced technologies in their products are enabling them to offer the right solutions, along with energy conservation and reduction in fuel consumption - all of which are keeping their customers’ owning and operating costs to a minimum.
