India's construction industry will continue to expand over the forecast period (2016-2020), with investments in residential, infrastructure and energy projects continuing to drive growth.

Various government flagship programs - including 100 Smart Cities Mission, Housing for All, Atal Mission for Urban Rejuvenation and Transformation (AMRUT), Make in India and Power for All - will be the growth drivers.

The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.65% over the forecast period; up from 2.95% during the review period (2011-2015).

There are certain challenges associated with India's construction industry outlook. Limited funding, slow policy reforms and a weak currency are factors that will continue to limit the growth potential during the early part of the forecast period.

Due to industrialization, urbanization, a rise in disposable income and population growth the demand for construction services is set to rise. Government efforts to improve the country's residential and transport infrastructure will also support growth.

  • In a bid to rehabilitate the slums, provide housing at affordable prices and ensure good quality homes, the government is focusing on social housing development. It launched the Housing for All by 2022 program in 2015, under which it set a target to construct 20.0 million social housing units across the country by 2022.
  • To promote comprehensive urban development and support economic growth, the government introduced AMRUT in 2015 to transform the country's urban areas. The main purpose of AMRUT is to provide basic infrastructure services such as water supply, sewerage connection, green spaces, parks and transportation facilities. The program will be implemented in 500 towns and cities.
  • Demand for electricity is projected to increase over the forecast period, due to industrialization, urbanization, population growth and per capita energy consumption. To reduce the country's reliance on imported energy, the government is developing its renewable energy infrastructure. It aims to generate 175GW of electricity through renewable sources by 2022.
  • To improve the country's infrastructure, the government will offer more road infrastructure projects under the PPP model. According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the government plans to offer 100 highway construction projects to the private sector in 2016.
