The creation of smart cities in India will create a huge demand for building infrastructure. This will have a positive trickle-down effect for a strong demand in the latest plumbing technology. In turn, the introduction of new sophisticated systems and solutions in the plumbing sector will drive the growth of the sector. This will involve training and certification of personnel which will help in improving economic position of this occupation.

The Swach Bharat Abhiyaan will also create an increase in the demand for Plumbing Supervisor. This will increase job opportunities across India for Plumber Supervisors.1
