EXCON will exemplify the role of smart technologies and innovation in India's infrastructure development to achieve the vision of making India the global hub for construction equipment manufacturing by 2030.
Indian CE industry, being the third-largest market globally, currently holds a prominent position in the global CE landscape. The Government of India’s ambitious INR 111 Lakh Crore National Infrastructure Pipeline would augur well for the Indian Construction Equipment industry to become the second-largest CE market globally, with a size of $25 billion by 2030, said Kumar.
EXCON endeavours to build India’s infrastructure ecologically sustainable, enabling projects on Smart Cities, supporting Swachh Bharat programs, promoting skill development and positioning ‘Make in India’ – as the national agenda for achieving holistic growth in the infrastructure and related sectors.
Some of the highlights of EXCON include an exclusive focus on alternate fuels, an AI pavilion, finance plaza, skills, women operating construction equipment and machinery, equal opportunity awards for women, MSMEs, digital transformation, and sustainability & safety, among others.
EXCON addresses both marketing and educational platform for all stakeholders.
