The election fever is high in the country and so is the urge to connect India via roads and highways. As of January 2019, India has a road network of over 5,903,293 kilometres, the second largest road network in the world. With that kind of massive road network and with more being brought up by the government, the market for roads and highways is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 36.16 per cent during 2016-2025. It has been reported that almost half of the 1,531 PPP projects awarded in India until March 2018 were related to roads.


Of the various construction equipment used, it is the loader market that is expected to grow the most until 2020, contributing more than 44 per cent of the total market review. The Asia-Pacific region is thus expected to dominate the global construction equipment market during the period 2015-2020 on the basis of an increase in industrial and residential construction activities.

The success of any project is a result of the perfect blending of management and implementation. This has opened the gates for software technology companies catering to the project management sector.
