India´s construction equipment industry is poised to grow around two-fold to $5 billion by 2020. In this regard, South Asia´s largest construction equipment exhibition was recently held in Bengaluru. Vipin Sondhi, Chairman, Excon, and CII Senior Executive, who is also the Managing Director & CEO of JCB India, is set to drive the force further. According to Sondhi, the industry´s de-growth has stopped and the industry is set to grow manifold and bound to bolster economic growth. His optimism assures that with stranded projects now making a move in the highways sector, the industry is hopeful of similar steps in other areas. Sondhi rightly believes that infrastructure growth holds the key to the construction equipment industry and the several initiatives taken by the government such as 100 smart city projects, metro rail projects, industrial corridor, etc, will boost demand for construction equipment. Truly, Sondhi is driving ´Make in India-Building Infrastructure, Building the Nation´, which has been the focus of Excon this year.
