  1. The article does not disclose the source of these information and its break up. Construction Equipment business is much more than just back hoe loader, Compactor,and Excavator. Earth moving, construction, and building infrastructure is a science and can not be classified. The major growth is in the open cast mining sector where high volume, high capacity, machines are deployed. India still lack manufacturing capability of 10 cubic meter excavators (both electrically operated or Diesel Hydraulic) 220+ ton capacity haulers. The methods are changed from what was vogue in the 1950s when mega projects like Bhakra Nangal, Beas Dam, KIOCL, Coal India, Rajaastan Canal Project( Now called Indira Gandhi canal). This industry is highly misrepresented by the media, who do not check with the Industry before they copy and paste from some brochures and press releases. Anything that digs and move the earth is a JCB and any thing that has crawlers are “bulldozers”. The quality of Indian and Chinese made machines are so low and the after market activities are badly managed even for good imported equipment. Please get deeper in to this segment before attempting to quote figures of growth rate and GDP.
