McGraw-Hill Construction Report Identifies Major Trends Driving Business in India's Construction Market
April 8, 2010

Produced in collaboration with CRISIL Ltd. (a Standard & Poor's company), the Confederation of Indian Industry and the India Green Building Council, a new report from McGraw-Hill provides new insights on construction opportunities based on key trends, including green building, infrastructure development, and commercial and institutional buildings. The brief is titled India's Growing Construction Marketplace: Trends Driving Business Opportunities.

"India is one of the fastest-growing construction markets in the world," said Harvey Bernstein, vice president, global thought leadership and business development, McGraw-Hill Construction. "With a rapidly urbanizing population and growing middle class, we see demand for new projects across nearly all areas of construction. This report reveals the tremendous opportunity that exists in India-for both domestic and foreign firms who can offer the goods, services and expertise to help India successfully meet their construction needs."

In the India SmartMarket Executive Brief, thought-leaders share their perspectives on India's growing construction marketplace and identify opportunities by shedding light on major trends such as master-planned communities, mixed-use developments, special economic zones and infrastructure construction projects.

The report identifies several key trend areas of importance, including green building. Spurred by the introduction of the LEED-India rating system as well as investor and occupier demands for more energy- and cost-efficient living and workspaces, green building is emerging as a major trend in Indian construction.
