The Indian engineering sector is divided into two major segments - heavy engineering and light engineering. The capital turnover in India is estimated at US$ 70 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow to US$ 115.17 billion by 2025. Likewise, electrical equipment market size is expected to reach US$ 100 billion by FY 2021-22. Comparative advantage vis-à-vis peers in terms of manufacturing costs, market knowledge, technology and creativity has been a driving force for engineering exports from India. Engineering exports from India grew 16.81 per cent to US$ 76,204.38 million in FY18 from US$ 65,239.19 million in FY17. Engineering exports during Apr-May 2018 stood at US$ 13.92 billion.

Construction equipment industry recorded sales of 78,109 and 66,613 units of construction equipment in 2017 and 2016 respectively. This is further expected to grow to around 100,000 units by 2022. Construction equipment market is projected to reach US$ 5 billion by FY20 from around US$ 4.3 billion in FY18.

Companies engaged in the engineering sector are virtually on a roll. Capacity creation in sectors like infrastructure, power, mining, oil & gas, refinery, steel, automotive, and consumer durables has been driving demand in the engineering sector. Separately, the approval of significant number of special economic zones (SEZs) across the country and the development of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) across seven states is expected to further bolster the engineering sector.

With 100 per cent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) allowed through the automatic route, and initiatives like ‘Make in India’, major international players have entered the Indian engineering sector due to significant growth opportunities available. Miscellaneous mechanical and engineering industries have received cumulative FDI inflows worth US$ 3.39 billion during April 2000 to December 2017.
