With new government come new changes in policies and development plans. These changes often lead to birth of a new strategy for advancement and value addition. One such industry feeling this change is manufacturing and infrastructure industry. With government rolling out new policies frequently, it is clear that civil engineering will be a predominant requisite for smooth change and development. It covers a wide field from designing and construction of heavy structures to soil and rock mechanics, surveying, material science and environmental science. Having said that, civil engineering alone can’t carry out this transmission smoothly. It would need to partner with technology which means better construction equipment, better construction material and more advanced heavy equipment.

With better technological equipment we will able to cut down cost and lead time and thus make the whole construction process efficient and optimized. Construction equipment market is under intense Research and development with many major players in the market trying to reform the industry. Similarly, in the construction material industry, the market is revolutionizing with better quality products and material with improved tensile strength and other new features. One such example is of cement and concrete materials where with new ingredients in the product mix, new properties have been added to these products.

With developing countries giving priority to manufacturing sector, there will be a sure shot demand for heavy equipment for establishment and expansion activities. Companies like caterpillar, komatsu, hitachi etc. are competing with each other for product development and market expansion in the industry. This healthy competition will help in technological advancement and will help to change the face of civil engineering.

In order to grow, each industry will have to inculcate civil engineering which calls for investing in assets like construction equipment, heavy equipment, materials- steel, cement, concrete etc. so that an industry or firm don’t lag behind in a long run and expand so as to fulfill the future demands which are increasing exponentially.
