Construction & Real Estate

Infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy. The sector is highly responsible for propelling India’s overall development and enjoys intense focus from Government for initiating policies that would ensure time-bound creation of world class infrastructure in the country. Infrastructure sector includes power, bridges, dams, roads and urban infrastructure development.

The construction industry is the second largest industry in India after agriculture. It accounts for about 11% of India as GDP. It makes significant contribution to the national economy and provides employment to large number of people. There are mainly three segments in the construction industry like real estate construction which includes residential and commercial construction; infrastructure building which includes roads, railways, power etc; and industrial construction that consists of oil and gas refineries, pipelines, textiles etc.

Construction sector contributed about 11.5% to the country’s GDP in FY 08. Over past few years, growth of the construction has followed the trend of economic growth rate of the country. The multiplier factor between growth rates of construction and GDP has been about 1.5X-1.6X. Over past 3 years, construction as a percentage of GDP has increased from 8.0% in FY 06 to 8.5% in FY 08. Construction activity being labour intensive has generated employment for about 33 million people in the country.

The construction sector in India, which employs more than 35 million people, is the second largest employer, next only to agriculture. Therefore, any improvements in the construction sector affect a number of associated industries such as cement, steel, technology, skill-enhancement, etc
