Infrastructure in India: A vast land of construction opportunity

In this paper, we examine the opportunities for the engineering and construction (E&C) industry in India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world. We also focus on the structuring opportunities and some of the challenges overseas participants are likely to encounter.

India’s economy is big and getting bigger. We estimate that India will become the world’s third largest economy by 2050. Liberalisation of government regulations and a deliberate strategy on the part of the Government to promote infrastructure spells opportunity for E&C companies.
