Total infrastructure spending is expected to be about 10 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) during the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012–17), up from 7.6 per cent during the previous plan (2007–12).

Increased impetus to develop infrastructure in the country is attracting both domestic and international players. Private sector is emerging as a key player across various infrastructure segments, ranging from roads and communications to power and airports.

Significant allocation to the infrastructure sector in the 12th Five-Year Plan, and investment requirement of US$ 1 trillion is expected to create huge demand for construction equipment in India.In the road’s sector, the government’s policy to increase private sector participation has proved to be a boon for the infrastructure industry with a large number of private players entering the business through the public-private partnership (PPP) model. As on March 2015, projects worth US$ 32.69 billion have been awarded through PPP model, with as many as 165 PPP projects still under progress. During the next five years, investment through PPP is expected to be US$ 31 billion In FY15, major ports handled 581.3 million metric tonnes (MMT) of cargo, while non-major ports handled 471.2 MMT of cargo. Since ports handle almost 95 per cent of trade volumes in India, the rising trade has contributed significantly to the country’s cargo traffic. To support the growing demand, cargo capacity in India is expected to increase to 2,493.1 MMT by 2017.
