Executive summary

The Indian construction industry increased in value at a CAGR of 15.10% during the review period. This growth was supported by the country's expanding economy, increased government spending on public infrastructure, high urbanization and a supportive foreign direct investment (FDI) system. Construction industry growth is expected to remain strong over the forecast period, as a result of the government's commitment to improving the country's infrastructure.

The infrastructure, industrial and commercial construction markets collectively accounted for 74.2% of the total Indian construction industry in 2012.

Key highlights

* India's economic growth is estimated to have slowed to 5.1% in 2012-2013, the lowest rate in a decade. This was caused by inadequate infrastructure, sluggish investment growth and policy paralysis. It is expected to improve marginally in 2013-2014. However, with a possibility of recovery in global economic growth and an expected improvement in business sentiment, India's GDP growth is expected to improve in the following three years and will expand to between 6% and 7.5% a year.
* The government's budget deficit widened from the equivalent of 5.1% of GDP in 2010-2011 to 6.1% in 2011-2012, as revenue receipts contracted by 4.5%. Despite a significant shortfall in revenue collection and sustained growth in expenditure, the government is optimistic about achieving a fiscal deficit target of 5.2% of GDP in 2012-2013 and aims to reduce the deficit to 4.8% of GDP in 2014-2015. However, Timetric forecasts that government expenditure growth will remain high and the sluggish economic performance will act as a drag on revenue growth.
* Construction activity has been unstable in recent quarters, with annual growth increasing to 10.9% in the second quarter of 2012 before dropping to 5.8% in the fourth quarter of the year. As overall economic growth has been fairly weak, slipping to a low of 4.5% on an annual basis in the fourth quarter of 2012, there are still concerns over the short-term prospects for the Indian construction industry, with developers in the commercial and residential property space likely to continue to struggle. Other problems, such as difficulties in land acquisition and securing environment clearances, could impact negatively on construction growth.
* In order to meet the long term need of infrastructure construction funding, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for setting up India's first infrastructure debt fund (IDF) was signed by ICICI Group, Bank of Baroda, Citicorp Finance India and Life Insurance Corporation in 2012. IDF will provide an alternative source of finance for investors and allow more investment in the infrastructure construction market. It aims to attract private investment to finance the majority of infrastructure projects. Major investments will be made in public-private projects on highways, railways, ports, roads and other infrastructure projects.
