The infrastructure sector has become the biggest focus area of the Government of India. Under Union Budget 2018-19, US$ 92.22 billion was allocated to the sector.

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. In order to boost the construction of buildings in the country, the Government of India has decided to come up with a single window clearance facility to accord speedy approval of construction projects. In 2018, India was ranked 44th out of 167 countries in World Bank's Logistics Performance Index (LPI) 2018. India was also ranked second* in the 2018 Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index.

The cumulative growth in the index of eight core industries was 4.7 per cent in 2017-18 and 5.5 per cent year-on-year in April-August 2018. As of April 2018, 56 new airports are expected to become functional in the country over the next few years. 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. India has a requirement of investment worth Rs 50 trillion (US$ 777.73 billion) in infrastructure by 2022 to have sustainable development in the country.

Indian infrastructure sector witnessed 91 M&A deals worth US$ 5.4 billion in 2017. In the first half of 2018, infrastructure and real estate witnessed PE/VC deals worth 3.9 billion. All villages in India will be connected through a road network by 2019 under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY). In August 2017, a new Metro Rail Policy was announced to boost private investment in the sector. The Government is also working on improving energy infrastructure in the country and investment opportunities worth US$ 300 billion will be available in the sector in the coming 10 years.

According to Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Construction Development sector and Infrastructure Activities sector received FDI inflows amounting to US$ 24.87 billion and US$ 13.11 billion, respectively from April 2000 to June 2018.
