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-

as a major trend in Indian construction.
