Capital Goods and Manufacturing Industry in India

CII has referred the Capital goods and Manufacturing industry in India as a strong, resilient and vibrant manufacturing sector. In 2011-12, the size of the capital goods industry was estimated to be 500,000 crore, the domestic demand was valued at 2, 35,000 crore and the exports were valued at 2, 65,000 crore.

As per IBEF (Indian Brand Equity Foundation), India is the fourth largest producer of crude steel and the largest producer of soft iron in the world. Presently, the Indian steel industry employs around 500,000 people while the per capita consumption in 2013 stood at around 57.8 kilograms. it is said that these numbers are expected to rise with increased industrialization throughout the country. The Government has set up an inter-ministerial group (IMG) in the Steel Ministry for effective coordination and expediting implementation of various investment projects in the steel sector.

The demand for steel in India is expected to rise by 4-5 per cent this year and will touch a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 per cent after FY17. Also, the recently released Union Budget 2014?15 has paved the way for the development of the Indian steel sector with proposals for the construction of 100 smart cities.

Considering all this it is safe to state that the sector is bound to increase in the coming time and so the job profile of a Cylinder Borer will witness a lot of growth in the future.
