Infrastructure Industry in India

Infrastructure development aids in the country's integration with global markets and low-cost global connectivity. Infrastructure services are required to increase corporate productivity and production by lowering production and transportation expenses.

There are significant advancements in India's transportation networks, including roads, railways, aviation, and waterways, and their impact on the country's economic growth. These infrastructure developments aim to enhance connectivity, reduce logistics costs, and position India as a global economic powerhouse.

The India Infrastructure Sector Market size is expected to grow from USD 186.24 billion in 2023 to USD 294.12 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 9.57% during the forecast period (2023-2028). Already India has made a headway in building national highways in a big way connecting all passenger, trade and freight points. About 13,800 km of highways construction is envisaged with an outlay of Rs 2.81 lakh crore in 2023-24 alone, up 33% from a year ago. Although the rate of change in the infrastructure and construction sector has not yet been as rapid as in some other sectors, this is starting to change, and the change will be both significant and unstoppable.
