Indian CE industry, being the 3rd largest market in the world, currently holds a prominent position in the global CE landscape. The government of India’s ambitious INR 111 Lakh Crore National Infrastructure Pipeline would augur well for the Indian Construction Equipment industry to become the 2nd largest CE market in the world, with a size of USD 25 billion by 2030, added Sakthi Kumar.

EXCON endeavours to build India’s infrastructure in an ecologically sustainable manner, enabling projects on Smart Cities, supporting Swachh Bharat programs, promoting skill development and positioning “Make In India” – as the National Agenda for achieving holistic growth in the infrastructure and related sectors.

Deepak Garg, Member, EXCON Steering Committee & MD, Sany Heavy Industry India Pvt Ltd said, “Encouraging the adoption of world-class technologies for speedy implementation of infrastructure projects is the current need of the State. EXCON with the presence of world-class players in the construction equipment sector, will not only deliver the best-in-class technologies along with cost-effective solutions, but will also bring more awareness amongst all stakeholders on the latest developments in CE Industry."

“The allocation of Rs.20,000 crore in the Union Budget for PM Gati Shakti - multi-modal connectivity for the States with focus on Roads, Railways, Airports, Ports and Waterways besides expansion of 25,000 kms of National Highway Network in 2022-23 would give tremendous push for infrastructure development in the country”, added Garg.

Excon addresses both marketing and educational platform for all stakeholders. Government and Senior Bureaucrats capitalised it as a knowledge platform for various departments (PWD’s and Civil Engineering Departments), Private contractors, Builders, Road/ Infrastructure developers, Smart City/ Urban Planning, Army, Border Roads Organisation, etc. to witness the latest Technology, Equipment’s and Machinery display which will enable accelerated Infrastructure development needs of the nation.

Leading construction equipment manufacturers at the exhibition would demonstrate the versatility of machines, sophistication in construction technologies and more importantly showcase the cost-effective solutions for builders and contractors for speedy implementation of projects with focus on quality, safety and environmental sustainability.
