Anasuya Gupta, Chairperson and Managing Director, CICO Technologies Ltd, is hopeful that a higher GDP growth, faster implementation of large infrastructure projects and real estate will create a positive impact on construction chemicals and set the tone for the growth of the industry in India.

The use of construction chemicals, however, is negligible in India due to awareness levels not being what they should. In India, the construction chemicals’ sub-sector contributes between 6.5 per cent and 7 per cent to GDP but is highly underdeveloped. Take the comparative figures with China, for instance, where the GDP contribution is $7.9 billion, as against India’s $600 million in 2013 (as per a report on the construction chemicals industry by FICCI).
