After a steep pickup in growth rate of gross value addition (GVA) at 2011-12 prices in 2013-14, the construction sector has showcased a sustained, though subdued growth, till 2016-17 (as official estimates by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion). Improvement is also mirrored in the order book position of construction players. Though moderate, there has been some increase in unexecuted order backlog of most of the companies.

The sector is slated to be benefited from a slew of policy measures announced by the government. Arbitration, for instance, one of the biggest concern areas of the sector, received action from the policy makers. Steps such as setting up of councils to ensure speedy disposal of pending arbitration cases, as well as release of 75% of the project cost to contractors by the government agencies have been welcome.

Introduction of new formats such as hybrid annuity model (HAM) for roads sector, and emphasis on addressing challenges related to PPP model (through Kelkar Committee’s recommendations) are some of the noteworthy efforts Also, introduction of Draft National Steel Policy 2017 and National Capital Goods Policy 2016 are also expected to supplement the growth in the construction space. Besides, mega-programmes such as Make in India, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, and Smart Cities also cast optimism on the sector’s outlook.

The project line-up in infrastructure and housing/real estate sectors is a major positive for the construction companies. Sectors such as irrigation, railways, roads, tunnels are expected to offer significant construction opportunities in the coming years. Owing to the pipeline, order inflows are expected to gain momentum. However, the pace of execution will determine the actual activity on ground.

The government has reiterated its focus on infrastructure development time and again. This bodes well for the construction players, as it open up fresh business opportunities. Overall, according to the research, there exists construction opportunity of about Rs 25 trillion, taking into account different construction intensities of each sector.

While the demand side of construction activities is replete with a strong pipeline of projects, the actual progress on ground will crucially hinge on factors such as effective and timely execution of projects, better financing arrangements, credit metrics of the construction player, as well as the viability of the project.
