Bulk material handling industry needs to gear up
Y. Srinivas Reddy, Managing Director of Bevcon Wayors, tells us how bulk material handling industry is playing a vital role in developing infrastructure in India
What kind of growth are you looking for bulk material handling equipment in India?I am very optimistic and positive that country like India, which is rapidly growing, has abundant opportunities to develop the infrastructure, and bulk material handling industry plays a vital role in it. I believe the industry is likely to have a 20 per cent year–on–year growth over the next five years, in keeping overall economic growth.
What are the new technologies coming up in the sector?The new technologies are coming based on the segment needs like stockyard equipment stackers and reclaimers, stockyard sheds, long distance cross country conveyors, and sandwich conveyors for mining, to name a few. Where does India stand compared to other parts of world in terms of meeting the increasing demand?Every country has its own challenges, hence comparison may be difficult. Nevertheless, in my view, India needs to gear up a lot to meet the internal challenges and demands as well as to fulfil the world market needs in terms of exports. What are the challenges the bulk MHE industry in India is facing today?Execution of turnkey projects is really a challenging game in India. Specific organisations should have abilities to handle business both techno and commercially. They should also be self-sufficient with infrastructure, human talent and project management capabilities to make it as successful and overall timely completion of a project is big task. Added to that, non-clarity in government regulations and policies is pending the growth of the industry.
