Sales of construction equipment in India are expected to grow to a record high during 2017, despite a significant rise in prices.

A new report from Indian Construction Equipment Manufacturers Association revealed that sales of construction equipment in New Delhi are anticipated to grow by around 10-15 percent to a record high this year, following years of decline.

Over the past three years, sales had declined year on year until they rose 2.5 percent in 2015 and a further 41.5 percent the following year (2016).

The increasing sales come at a time where prices of construction equipment are also rising.
