We believe that since global economics and priorities are changing, in the present scenario, only the best high-tech and affordable machines will be in demand. Armix is well-prepared with its team of highly experienced technical experts to offer entry-level affordable solutions along with completely automated turnkey installations in the field of concrete blocks, fly ash bricks, interlocking pavers, kerb stones, dish channels, and flag tiles, apart from ready-mix plants for concrete.
With the restrictions imposed on Chinese products and investments, Indian companies will find many opportunities to develop products indigenously.
Though the construction equipment and machinery industry is seeing a slowdown due to the pandemic, the construction projects have partially restarted, so the sentiment is becoming positive after the lockdown. A few other industries such as medical, food, agriculture, and related industries are gaining pace and recovering slowly. In the long-term, the markets will improve through deployment of different channels and strategies, while the traditional business approach will undergo a major change. Technology and online platforms will become the accepted ways of communication.
The government is taking visible steps to speed up infrastructure construction. With the restrictions imposed on Chinese products and investments, well established Indian companies and upcoming entrepreneurs will find many opportunities to develop products indigenously. The machinery manufacturing and infrastructure sector should materialize the same so that the ‘Make in India’ concept becomes a reality with India emerging as a manufacturing hub. Many countries are eying India favorably and the finance ministry has announced the guidelines for specific sectors. We need to identify the right opportunity and convert it into a reality.
The Government has announced relief packages which will infuse funds and prevent a liquidity crunch in the market. Bringing co-operative banks and other financial institutions under the direct RBI supervision is also a very good step. GST related issues are yet to be sorted out, but the Government is moving on the right track, and it should also look at the import-export tariffs and the formalities at the customs.
Indians are very adept in the Information Technology and Service industries, which gives us an advantage over many other countries.
Maintaining the labour force and shifting to online platforms in terms of sub-suppliers, quality issues and shipping will have challenges. Apart from this, the online support and services need to be updated in most of the existing plants and machines, including the software. But Indians have proven their caliber in the IT and service industries, which gives us an advantage over many other countries. We need to maintain the quality and standardization of parts and build online support to overcome the challenges.
Collaboration between contractors, suppliers, and financial institution is already in place, but connecting with the OEMs could be a challenge. However, when it comes to survival, I believe that all the stakeholders will work together on a mutually beneficial platform. Here, the cost of development, time and connectivity need to be addressed and I think that the startup companies could also fill the gap.
Local component manufacturers and suppliers should establish their presence more strongly in the manufacturing sector.
Critical supply components could be sourced locally, though a few may require some design change and quality improvements. However, we need to start bulk production and utilization of components in the equipment industry. Local component manufacturers and suppliers should seek to establish their presence more strongly in the manufacturing sector. I believe that the Government will prepare the necessary framework to ensure the business activities and the stability of these local players.
Apart from meeting demand of the domestic market, the Government should initiate more trade negotiations and provide concessions for export markets. It is expected that more countries will set up trade barriers for Chinese products and the Indian government should seize the opportunity to bring more relaxations in export.
