Infrastructure Transport

Crusher innovations are helping construction companies and civic authorities work more productively.

India was estimated to see a fivefold increase in the production of aggregates between the years 2000 and 2020, to 5,075 million metric tonne (mmt), according to Vadiraj Pappu, Business Head, Terex Powerscreen Business, Voltas Mining & Construction Equipment Division.

Correspondingly, and in keeping with the construction activity across the country, he observes the demand for crushing and screening equipment increasingly across all classes – about half of all the crushers being sold in India are stationary, 35 per cent are wheeled and 15 per cent are track variants.
