Skilling Solutions for Construction & Engineering

According to a survey conducted by a leading construction firm, it is expected that by 2025, the worldwide volume of construction output will grow by more than 70% reaching a whopping $ 15 trillion. It is also expected that a significant growth in the construction industry will emerge from markets in China, India, Africa and Indonesia.

The Indian construction industry employs around 45 million people, out of which 82.5% are unskilled workers, 10% skilled workers and the remaining are engineers, technicians, foremen and clerical staff. It is expected that about 83 million people would be employed in the construction sector by 2022. Therefore, the incremental human resource requirement between 2008 and 2022 would be about 47 million in this sector.

Likewise, in Africa, inadequate infrastructure along with industrial and urban growth over the recent years has led to increased government spending on development of infrastructure in key territories.
