Q 1.) Tell us about the road building and coal mining demands and relative growth in India in 2017-18?
The Indian government’s ambitious plan to improve infrastructure will facilitate further growth in the construction equipment industry, notably in road building which remains a very active sector. We also expect that more equipment will be required in coal mining, particularly large excavators.
Q 2.) What are your growth predictions of development for “Volvo Construction Equipment”? How it will push your business?
In the short to medium term, we see a very bright outlook for the Volvo Construction Equipment. India has a lot of potential thanks to the government’s strong push for infrastructure development. This will almost certainly lead to stronger growth in the construction equipment industry. As a market leader, Volvo CE is excited to play a part in facilitating India’s development.
