The demand for crushers and screens are rising consistently due to the construction and infrastructure development projects such as roads, dams, and railways which are lined up. The retail market for construction also plays a vital part. The ban on usage of river sand is also promoting the demand, rapid urbanisation due to increase in population and better living standards are expected to propel the demand further. The aggregates industry in India is one of the biggest in the world because there is huge investment happening here. India is one the largest global consumers of aggregates and is touted as the epicentre of the world construction industry market. The Covid-19 pandemic has applied brakes but the aggregate sector is already showing signs of a strong recovery and the demand is steadily increasing.

“We can see a huge surge in demand for mobile crushers and screeners because unlike the traditional crushers, mobile crushers can be deployed on-site for crushing the minerals,” says Kamlesh Pal, Director, Vindhya Engineering. This eliminates the need for transportation of minerals, thereby abolishing the transportation costs. Moreover, he adds that the crusher equipment is a complete setup that involves minimum human resources in its operation, which, in turn, reduces the labour cost. Furthermore, with a longer operational life, the mobile crushers are considered a one-time investment. “The maintenance of materials, spare parts, and fuel lubricants are known to cost less compared to the traditional crushers. Hence, the low cost of operating mobile crushers drives their demand among various end-users,” says Pal. He shares more on the segment and the company’s offerings with CW...
