What is your overview of developments, promotion and application of pre-engineered building system as prevalent abroad and its comparison with those in India? Why these systems have not gained popularity despite their manifold advantages over conventional system?
If the industry of Pre-engineered steel buildings continues to grow at the current 33% growth rate in India, then in a short span of 7-8 years India will be among the top 10 countries supplying steel building to the world.
What are the major hurdles in the way? What steps the company is currently contemplating to boost its business?
Today, in India, people are still not aware of this industry and still go for RCC and Conventional steel building solutions.
Looking into the time frame of tight project schedule, PEB structures can be used for tenders to deliver quality, esthetic, structural flexibility & ultimately promote usages of steel over concrete. The other advantage of the PEB structure is that steel can reduce carbon dioxide emission which will minimize pollution. At Era, we are catering to the requirement of clients in Power sector, heavy structural steel for boiler support structure also and for infrastructure projects. PEB industry is in fragmented condition – so the company will take well crafted long- term strategies in order to attempt a consolidation of the same.
