Rising Trends

The construction sector in ASEAN and India is one of the fastest-growing markets and is expected to account for a significant share of the global construction market. In Asia-Pacific, countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and India have seen rapid expansion in construction activity. Furthermore, by 2030, the Indian real estate business is expected to be worth USD 1 trillion, contributing nearly 13% of the GDP.

According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), between April 2000 and June 2020, the construction development and infrastructure activities sectors attracted FDI inflows totaling USD 25.69 billion and USD 16.97 billion, respectively.

Growth Opportunities

Aluminum is completely recyclable and retains all its qualities. Due to the virtue of recyclability, the world's rising stock of aluminum will operate as a resource bank, delivering more practical use and value from the energy embodied in the metal at its production. Furthermore, recycling the currently stored metal would equal up to 24 years of current annual primary aluminum output. This quality of aluminum distinguishes it from other non-recyclable replacements and gives chances to expand the market under consideration.
