• Construction in India - July 2021

India’s US$1.5 trillion National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) will provide huge opportunities in road, rail, power and airport construction.

The construction industry in India will enjoy sharp grow in line with launch of the ambitious National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) and the government’s aim to make India a US$5 trillion economy by 2024.

NIP has projected a capital expenditure of INR111 trillion (US$1.5 trillion) to be spent from 2019-25, and over 70 per cent of this has been allocated to four infrastructure sectors – energy (24 per cent), roads (19 per cent), urban infrastructure (16 per cent) and railways (13 per cent).

The power sector is expected to see investment of INR14.10 trillion (US$190 billion) during 2020-25, with a further INR1.5 trillion (US$20 billion) for nuclear power generation channelled through the Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL). Within spending on power, some INR9.3 trillion (US$125 billion) of capex will be directed to renewable energy projects.

In roadbuilding, the main vehicle for investment is the Bharatmala Programme, a national umbrella scheme which has the target of completing 35,000 km by 2024-25. The investment envisaged for this under the NIP is INR20.34 trillion (US$275 billion).

Railways construction is set to receive investment of over INR13.67 trillion (US$185 billion) by the end of the 2024-25 financial year. This is for a combination of upgrades to existing lines, such as line doubling and gauge conversion as well as the building of 17,000 km of new track. Investment will also go to new flagship projects such as dedicated freight corridors and high-speed rail corridors.

In the metro rail segment, a capital investment target of INR5.73 trillion (US$75 billion) has been set for the sector by 2025, while airport development is another big opportunity for the construction industry, with opportunities put at INR1.43 trillion (US$19 billion).
