Mining, road construction and building construction are the mainstays of the crushing and screens segment. How has the segment fared in these challenging times?

Demand from the road construction industry isn’t at the same levels as pre-COVID times but is still fairly good because the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and National Highways and Industrial Development Corporation (NHIDCL) have ensured continuity of road construction as well as tendering, according to Ramana Kumar, AGM-Application, Puzzolana Machinery Fabricators (Hyderabad) LLP.  “As building construction is picking up slowly, demand for sand and aggregates is pushing commercial quarrying activity.”

“We have seen growth in demand for crushing and screening equipment from the mining industry as most iron ore and coal mining leases have been renewed and the new mine owners have started operations,” says Ramesh Palagiri, Managing Director and CEO, Wirtgen India. “Migrant labour issues and uncertainty, both outcomes of the pandemic, have caused customers to put new procurement plans on hold; this, in turn, has impacted new plant sales.”
