E.S. Lee, Managing Director - Hyundai Construction Equipment India
Our new HX series of excavators will be launched at Excon19. It will showcase the innovative Clinometer, which informs the operator about the inclination angle of the machine while digging, and will have a ROPS/FOPS cabin, and a rear-view camera for all around visibility. I am sure our customers will appreciate the various new features for safe operation, the technology-led controls, and product quality, which have been designed and developed to meet their present and future requirements

We have developed an exclusive fuel efficiency kit for our SMART series of machines.
Hyundai in Korean means ‘modern’ as we keep working at different levels to keep our products current and equipped with the latest and most innovative features. Since the inception of our company, we have offered the CAPO (Computer Aided Power Optimization) system, self-monitoring and fault diagnostic features in all our excavators.

We have recently updated the control program for machines to improve their fuel efficiency and have developed an exclusive fuel efficiency kit for our SMART series of machines. Understanding the need of customers to track the performance of their machines, we developed and launched a unique remote management system called Hi-Mate, where all the critical operational and performance parameters, including service and error codes are available to the customer at a touch of his mobile phone app.

Worksites have become more and more demanding on the equipment where a lot more is expected than before with respects to their performance, safety, and fuel saving.
Customers are increasingly looking for equipment that ensures timely completion of the contract while ensuring productivity, profitability and reliability. To address this requirement, Hyundai CE India makes constant improvements in the existing line-up, along with new machine launches. Recently, Hyundai introduced a new fuel saving technology in its 20-ton range, which saves up to 25% fuel costs. We will be extending this fuel saving technology to other segments as well.

With expectations of more efficient performances by the machines, technologies such as IoT, Big Data, Machine Learning and AI are poised to be the next big thing in the CE industry.
While currently, the implementation of such technologies is at a nascent stage, we see them playing a very important role, going forward. Equipment is the most crucial factor in any construction and mining operation. With the expectation of more efficient operations from the equipment, these technologies are poised to be the next big thing. We are already witnessing wide scale adoption of these technologies in the developed markets.

We have seen the Remote Management System and Hi Mate being launched In India and doing exceptionally well. Other global offerings such as Hi Assist and Hi Detect will soon find their way to the Indian market and we will offer more technologies as demands rises since we already have a line-up of these proprietary tools at our disposal, globally.

The long-term prospects for India are quite promising.
Though the industry is currently going through a rough patch, the long-term prospects for India are quite promising. Large scale projects by the central and state governments in sectors such as roads, inland waterways, ports, airports and infrastructure modernization in the cities, will raise the demand for equipment on a large scale.

The infrastructure sector remains the biggest focus area of the central Government. Under the Union Budget 2019-20, ₹4,41,704.8 crore has been allocated to the sector. Railways, Roads & Highways, Ports and Airports are expected to receive a huge chunk of this allocation.

Furthermore, the government has announced to invest ₹10,000,000 crore for infra development over the next five years. To upgrade 1,25,000 kms of road length over the next five years, the estimated cost of ₹80,250 crore is envisaged under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana-III (PMGSY). The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has created a pipeline of projects worth ₹8 lakh crore, which will be awarded over the next three years, as the government begins the exercise of creating a national infrastructure pipeline.

All these developments point towards the continued thrust by the policy makers for the Infrastructure industry, leading to a buoyant demand for the CE Industry for the next 3 to 5 years.
