In the power sector, capacity addition in renewables exceeded that in conventional power. In fact, India’s solar power generation capacity crossed 10 GW in 2017, a more than three-fold jump in less than three years. UDAY continued to show promising results.
The urban infrastructure sector witnessed approval of a number of projects under schemes such as the Smart Cities Mission, the Atal Mission for rejuvenation and Urban Transformation, the Swachh Bharat Mission and the National Mission for Clean Ganga. The metro segment also witnessed significant progress with the completion and the award of some major projects.
The outlook for the infrastructure sectors is promising and will be largely driven by increased investments in the power, railways, roads and bridges, metro rail, water and waste, ports, airports and oil and gas sectors. Infrastructure development is thus expected to offer significant business opportunities for contractors, technology providers, and equipment and material suppliers.
However, a number of issues and challenges continue to affect the implementation and timely completion of all infrastructure projects. Project development and preparation are often lacking, resulting in legal disputes between stakeholders. Private investment has been slow to flow amidst uncertainty over the bankability of projects. The land acquisition issue remains critical and is still a major cause for projects getting stalled. The good news is that most of these issues have been recognised and concrete steps are being undertaken to resolve them.
Going forward, a lot of attention needs to be paid on timely project execution which in turn depends on proper project structuring, adequate political support, credible and updated data systems, and consistent revenue streams
The data sources in this report is both primary and secondary. The primary data is obtained from sources such as related ministries, industry experts, private companies, Conferences organized by us for the related sector etc. The secondary sources include annual reports of companies, industry associations, paid databases, web sites, etc. The analysts and researchers combine the information from these primary and secondary sources with their industry expertise to synthesize the data presented in the report. Surveys and interviews are also conducted for this research. For the surveys, Interviews with key players and relevant people in the sector are mainly conducted. They are mostly via telephonic as well as personal interviews.
