The industry has faced turbulence this year but there will be normalcy in some time


There has been a lot of turbulence throughout the year in the CE industry, starting from demonetization, which happened in the last quarter of the last year and continued till the first quarter of this year. The industry was again impacted by emission norms coming in; BS IV Emission norm is not applicable for the equipment used for farming and construction. Tractors, harvesters, and construction equipment vehicles have different emission norms and they need not follow the guidelines given to two-wheelers and commercial vehicles.

Right after this, there was the introduction of GST which aims to bring one uniform tax across the country, eliminating several layers of tax collection, things were quite confusing in the beginning but gradually things took their place. Now, with the revision being made in the slabs, CE industry is again put in 18% slab which is a positive change for the industry.

The long-term outlook for the Indian market is very promising

In the journey of more than 28 years in India, we have seen difficult years as well as years of growth in Indian construction equipment. After a recent 4-year slowdown, we experienced good growth last year in line with the industry. We used this slowdown as an opportunity to prepare ourselves with upgraded products.

Owing to our strategic positioning, we were able to leverage the growth to our advantage by achieving a higher percentage growth than the industry at large. The long-term outlook for the Indian market is very promising with huge potential. We expect significant growth and are positive of increase in volume for the next year.

The Indian customer is becoming increasingly discerning and demands products with higher efficiency and performance, especially in applications where the project needs to be delivered within a certain timeframe. We have a complete family of construction equipment. And, with the market evolving, we offer the best support by using our skills and expertise.

All these factors collectively help in building trust and brand connect among the customers giving them reassurance in terms of our customer support, quality, and product offerings.

Our R&D is constantly working to develop cost-effective solutions and components

Earlier, majority of our machines were imported from foreign markets which automatically increased the prices of our machines. To bring costs down and make the machines more consumer-friendly, our R&D is constantly working to develop new solutions and components, along with ease of availability of the parts and low maintenance cost.

Operator comfort and safety are the most important factors to get optimum productivity from machines. Keeping this in mind, CASE’s major products are equipped with closed air conditioning ROPS cabin, while most of our competitors are providing an open canopy.
