Vanjul Jain, Director, Youngman India, talks about how the growing need for construction and infrastructure has led to the market trend of getting more done in less time and less cost, and how the changing governments would not affect the industry’s growth.

Share your views on the current market trend which is going to influence the construction machinery market in the ongoing year, 2019.
Current market trend is towards getting more done in less time and less cost, but market has started to understand that quality and safety comes at a cost, the only difference is timing and quantum. If it’s pre-emptive, it’s less and creates a productive environment, if not taken care of it proves to be a huge cost and repeat work. If you ask me, the contractor should never invest into construction machinery or equipment for majorly three reasons, firstly, they are not trained to manage or take proper care of the equipment as it’s not their core competence. It becomes a deviation to the core business. Secondly, it’s very difficult to manage logistics, keep up the utilisation of the equipment, also when there is downtime or less projects where to store the equipment, and in case there is a stream of projects find extra capital to fund new equipment. Thirdly and finally, why to amortise and maintain equipment as fixed asset in balance sheet and never depreciate full in lifetime, whereas on rent you can take it as a direct expense and get full tax benefit in line with cash expenditure.
