Scaling new heights
01 Aug 2019
The Indian pre-engineered building market is expanding both vertically and horizontally, as it takes on structures of greater height and complexity.
“We estimate that the organised steel building solutions market, spanning pre-engineered buildings and smart steel (light-gauge steel frames), is worth over `60 billion annually and growing rapidly,” says S Krishnakumar, CEO, Building Solutions, Everest Industries.
“If you also take into account the unorganised segment, the market would be much bigger.”
“The pre-engineered building market is expected to demand over 600,000 mt of steel per annum,” reckons D Raju, Managing Director, Kirby Building Systems & Structures India.
