    Published on March 11, 2014

    Mumbai: UBM India today announced the launch of the second edition of its Concrete Show India. The event, slated in Mumbai from 13 – 15 Mach 2014 at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre, will cover key sectors like Roads, Housing, Airports, Ports, Power, Rail, Dams & Bridges. Concrete Show India 2014 will provide a platform for industry suppliers to showcase the best and newest technologies in machinery, equipment, commercial concrete products, services and systems.

    India’s planning commission has projected an investment of US$ 1 trillion for the infrastructure sector during the 12th Five Year Plan, with 40 per cent of the funds coming from the private sector. It is one of the major sectors that propel overall development of the Indian economy. Unlike other developed countries, India’s geographical position poses some challenges in huge infrastructural development like building of roads, flyovers, airports, damns & bridges, etc. In the modern infrastructural methods, precast technology is the most safer and durable option for building technology than some of the traditional methods. Pioneering use of precast technology can change the face of Indian economy by speeding up the course of action across varied proposed infrastructure projects. Expansions of Metro and Mono railway routes across various Tier I cities in India is one such example of implementation of the same.
