Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Wind Power -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

Wind power sector added 5.4 GW of capacity during 2016-17, the highest ever added in the space in India. This can be largely attributed to the withdrawal of generation-based incentives and decline of accelerated depreciation benefits from 80 per cent to 40 per cent with effect from April 2017. In 2016, the government also decided to migrate to a reverse auction process of project allotment from 2017 onwards. This prompted developers to commission as much capacity as possible at the existing feed-in tariffs.

FiTs give way to Competitive Bidding
The success of the 1 GW wind capacity auction, which saw tariffs falling to Rs 3.46 per kWh, seems to be having a positive ripple effect with all the states looking to migrate from a feed-in tariff (FiT) regime to competitive bidding for project allocation. The past two months have seen the launch of four new tenders for wind power capacity including a 1 GW tender by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). At a time when the wind power sector has been hit by inordinate delays in the signing of power purchase agreements (PPAs) and untimely payments, and discoms have shied away from procuring power generated by wind projects, this transition to a competitive bidding regime has been received well across the value chain.

For developers that were awaiting approvals/clearances from various state departments before signing PPAs with discoms, this is an opportunity to develop a large amount of capacity at sites owned by them. For the financially stressed state discoms, the tariff at which they are currently buying wind power is much higher than the tariff quoted in the SECI auction.

Wind-Solar Hybrids to Emerge as the Next Big Area of Opportunity
The sector is witnessing increased interest from developers in setting up large-scale wind-solar hybrid projects. The draft national wind-solar hybrid policy. A memorandum of understanding was signing between IL&FS Energy and the Government of Andhra Pradesh for a 1,000 MW 'Hybrid Park‘ with energy storage. Also, Gamesa has recently won a contract for a renewable hybrid project to be commissioned in Karnataka. The project comprises hybridisation of a 50 MW wind farm with a 28.8 MW solar farm as well as a 2 MW wind farm with a 1.37 MW solar project.

Power Off take and Transmission Related Issues Need to be Fixed
Risks related to power offtake and payments will need to be addressed carefully and diligently, given the stressed balance sheets of the discoms and the lack of adequate transmission infrastructure. The state governments need to work towards resolving the challenge of intermittency associated with wind power through the effective implementation of forecasting and scheduling norms and increased efforts to make storage solutions viable.

IPPs to Comprise Significant Majority of Wind Capacity Additions
As the wind energy ecosystem transitions from the FiT to the reverse auction regime, it would result in the customer base for OEMs shrinking. While they earlier received orders from companies in unrelated businesses seeking tax breaks, smaller players will now find it difficult to participate under competitive bids. This is mainly owing to the large block size (50 MW minimum block) on offer and higher capex involved.

Non-solar RPO compliance far away from new targets
The weighted average of non-solar RPO targets set by all states was 7.76 per cent, compared to the target of 8.75 per cent set by the Ministry of Power. Of this, about 70-75 per cent of compliance was met by states and that too wind rich states. The other states are lagging behind significantly. Non-Solar RPO target of 10.25 per cent by 2018-19 will necessitate significant wind capacity addition going forward.

Equipment market to grow significantly
The cumulative market for wind energy generator towers is estimated at Rs 300.3 million, while that of drives and motors is likely to be Rs 334.6 million during the forecast period of 2017-22. Over the next five years, wind power market is expected to grow significantly on the back of competitive bidding regime, national targets and falling capital costs. Increased lending by banks at lower interest rates for longer tenures also helps the market grow.

Offshore Wind has a long way to go in India
Offshore wind is another opportunity that is coming up, for which the government has already notified the National Offshore Wind Policy. However, the commercial sense for these projects will take a long time to be established. PLFs for offshore wind farms are upwards of 40 per cent, but bringing an offshore wind farm capacity online is very cumbersome and time taking (gestation period is typically 12-18 months).

Significant investments required to realise the 60 GW targets
The Indian wind power segment would require cumulative investments to the tune of Rs 1.53 trillion, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 7.1%. It is estimated that an average of 5.5 GW of capacity will be installed every year. Capital costs for wind projects have been falling in the recent past. This trend has been assumed to continue into the future as well, as the scale of installations and installed capacity increases.

Road Development 2017 Market Overview, Opportunities and Outlook

Road Development -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 9, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Road Development Industry

Description

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Road Development -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

• The award of 10,000 km of national highway projects and construction of a length spanning 6,000 km during 2015-16 has given a new high to the road sector. The sector has certainly started showing signs of recovery after a slowdown of almost three years. The initiatives taken by the central government have begun to show quantifiable results. The current construction rate for national highways has gone up to about 16-18 km per day.
• During 2015-16, the National Highways Development Programme (NHDP) too reported impressive numbers with the award of 79 contracts spanning over 4,300 km. With regard to the mode of implementation, the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) model continued to be the dominant mode of project award and implementation. Nearly 80% of the projects awarded by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) during 2015-16 were on an EPC basis. In the current fiscal, 50% of the projects awarded so far are on an EPC basis. The newly launched hybrid annuity model (HAM) found takers with the award 36 projects so far.
• Road development in the northeast region also picked up pace. As of December 31, 2016, 41 packages spanning 1,098 km with a total project cost of Rs 172.33 billion (including land acquisition cost) are currently under execution.

Request for Sample Report @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/1936420-road-development-in-india-2017

Key Initiatives: On the Right Track
• Launch of innovative modes of delivery such as the HAM have to some extent contribution to increase activity. With the recent approval for the toll-operate-transfer (TOT) model, the Ministry of Road Transport of Highways (MoRTH) continues to explore new areas of growth.
• The investor sentiment; however, continues to be low key. There is still some time before the stakeholders exit the ‘wait and watch’ mode and turn bullish towards the sector.
• During the past 12-15 months, the ministry took concrete steps to ease the operating and financing environment. Amendments to the model concession agreement (MCA), one-time fund infusion, exit policy, segregation of construction cost from civil cost for project appraisal are some of the initiatives undertaken. At the same time, attempts are being made to modify the public-private partnership (PPP) model with the Kelkar Committee showing the way in its recent report.
• On the funding front, new sources are being explored. Innovative means like masala and green bonds are being explored. The government’s decision to remove dividend distribution tax on infrastructure investment trusts (InvITs) has encouraged companies like IRB Infrastructure Developers MEP Infrastructure Developers to list their assets under InvITs. RBI’s approval to the Scheme for Sustainable Structuring of Stressed Assets (S4A) will also ease stress.

Trending– Asset sales and Debt Restructuring
• Operational asset sales have become prominent in the sector; especially post the policy change that allowed companies to fully exit their projects after two years of construction. This is helping road developers deleverage their balance sheets to infuse fresh liquidity into the sector. Some of the companies that divested their assets include Hindustan Construction, NCC, Sadbhav Infrastructure Projects, GMR, Madhucon, Gammon and PNC Infratech.
• Meanwhile, execution delays, policy hold-ups and indebted cash-strapped promoter companies have rendered loan recovery difficult for banks. This has led to an increasing number of stressed assets in their books, and therefore restructuring of loans has become routine for most lending consortiums.
• During the past 12-15 months, the sector also reported a surge in corporate debt restructuring (CDR) cases. In fact, developers such as IVRCL have had to go through strategic debt restructuring (SDR) due to mounting financial stress.

Technology Initiatives and Online Portals – To Expedite Development

• Technology continues to be a key focus area of the ministry and NHAI. FASTag is now active at about 350 toll plazas across the country. NHAI is in the process of introducing advanced highway management systems on national highways. This will help improve vehicular flow as well as transfer real-time traffic data to the operator.
• Online platforms like e-Pace and Infracon, and an updated version of INAM-PRO have also been launched by the ministry. Recently, the government launched an Indian Bridge Management System to closely monitor the inventory of national highway bridges.
• Road safety is another focus area of the government. It has set a target to reduce the number of fatalities due to road accidents by 50 per cent by 2020. It has also constituted a group of ministers to recommend safety-related measures.
• In order to promote greening of highways, the NHAI launched a policy on green highways in 2015 as part of which 1% of the project cost will be side aside for plantation on highways.
Key Challenges – Impeding Growth Prospects
• The sector continues to face some key issues. Land acquisition is still a grey area. There is a need for a more effective dispute resolution mechanism, proper project development and preparation, and a more balanced risk allocation.
• Financing continues to be problem, especially with regard to availability of equity; it has been difficult to achieve financial closure of projects. The newly crafted HAM projects are also finding it difficult to achieve closures. Equity constraints and rising non-performing assets continue to add to developer and financier woes.
• Issues related to exemption of vehicles, delayed payments of annuity and litigation are some of the unforeseen ones being faced by the lenders. Poor quality of feasibility reports, ban on mining activities, slow and lengthy arbitration process, toll exemptions, falling wholesale price index and static traffic growth are some of the key concerns.

Request for Sample Report @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/1936418-power-transmission-in-india-2017

Private Sector Participation
• Private players bagged all (6) tariff- based competitive bidding (TBCB) projects awarded during January-December 2016.
• While Sterlite Power Transmission has the most TBCB projects in its portfolio, Adani Transmission is fast emerging as a major player through key mergers and acquisitions during 2016-17.
• About eight TBCB projects aggregating over Rs 100 billion are presently under various stages of bidding. Foreign transmission companies including China Southern Power Grid International have evinced interest in entering the Indian transmission sector in the latest round of TBCB projects’ tender.
Policy and Regulatory Framework
• The policy and regulatory framework has kept pace with the evolving sector needs.
• In this context, steps have been taken to shelve off Powergrid’s central transmission utility (CTU) status to ensure a more level playing field between Powergrid and private players, revise transmission planning guidelines, incentivize early completion of projects, and revisit the standard bidding documents for TBCB, among others.
• In addition, the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission notified regulations to introduce ancillary services and for forecasting wind/solar energy output by interstate developers.

Renewable Energy Integration
• With the union government’s announcement of ambitious plans to scale up renewable energy to 175 GW by 2022 from just about 47 GW at present, the pressure to develop associated power evacuation infrastructure has increased.
• In this context, Powergrid is implementing projects under Green Energy Corridors –I and II.
• Around 17,000 ct km of lines and 34,650 MVA of substation capacity is envisaged to be added at interstate and intra-state levels under GEC-I to support 33 GW of solar and wind power.
• Meanwhile, GEC-II would help evacuate 20,000 MW of solar capacity from upcoming parks.

Leave a Query @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/enquiry/1936418-power-transmission-in-india-2017

Cross-Border Interconnections
• India is actively building/planning to build cross-border transmission links with the SAARC member states to enable power trade with an objective of a unified regional power grid.
• Currently, India has operational cross-border interconnections with Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and Nepal.
• Five more interconnections – one each with Bangladesh and Nepal and three with Bhutan, are already under construction
• Besides, interconnections with Sri Lankas and Pakistan are under discussion.

Inter-state Comparison
• The state transmission utilities of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka own the largest share of line length among 24 utilities surveyed by India Infrastructure Research.
• The STUs of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are the only ones with network at 765 kV.
• In terms of substation capacity, STUs of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh have the largest shares (in that order).
• The transmission losses of utilities ranged between 0.85 per cent (Delhi) to 5.18 per cent (Uttar Pradesh).
• The utilities have envisioned significant capacity addition under the Power for All initiative.

Affordable Housing Market, Size, Share, Market Intelligence, Company Profiles and Trends Forecast To 2022

Affordable Housing -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 9, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Affordable Housing Industry

Description

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Affordable Housing -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

Accelerated Urbanisation Creates Housing Demand 

• India is currently undergoing large scale urbanisation, a trend that will continue over the next few decades. It has been estimated that close to 10 million people will get added to the urban areas every year through the next few decades, taking the urban population to about 810 million by 2050.

• Rural-urban migration is one of the key forces driving this urban population explosion.

Housing shortage is related to urbanisation 
• Of the total urban housing shortage estimated in the country, close to 95% is prevalent in the EWS and LIG categories, bringing the affordable housing into the limelight.

• People who are homeless and live in slums are only partly responsible for driving the affordable housing demand in the country. A big chunk of demand mushrooms out of the need to replace the congested, obsolete and non-serviceable dwellings.

Request for Sample Report @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/2471616-affordable-housing-in-india-2017

Enabling policy framework – Housing For All Vision 2020

• The central government acknowledged the importance of housing issue in the country and launched a massive campaign in 2015 called Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) to provide housing to all Indian citizens by 2022.

• The scheme envisages building of 20 million houses to address urban housing needs by 2020. Later in 2016, a rural component was added to PMAY, under which 10 million houses will be built by 2019.

• PMAY has been instrumental in infusing much needed activity in the affordable housing space.

• Riddled with several challenges such as lack of land and high construction costs, the space has seen limited private sector interest over the years. While the private participation narrative has not changed drastically even now, the government’s intent to encourage private sector participation is clearly visible in the spate of initiatives announced in the last six to seven months.

• Union Budget 2016-17, particularly has given several reasons to cheer for stakeholders in the affordable housing segment. To begin with the government has granted the much-coveted infrastructure status to affordable housing, giving developers access to cheaper sources of funding, ECBs. Further, affordable housing promoters have been granted more time for project completion. The tenure for long-term capital gains for affordable housing has been reduced from three to two years. Furthermore, the qualifying size criteria for affordable housing have been revised to be based on the carpet, rather than the saleable area, a move that effectively increases the size of the affordable housing market across India.

• Meanwhile, a new Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) for the mid-income group has been announced in addition to already existing ones for EWS and LIG. The annual allocation for the project has gone up by 39% in 2017-18.

• The recent notification of PPP policy, which offers models to undertake construction on government land is also seen as a major catalyst that will evince private sector interest in the sector.

Flourishing Housing Finance Market

• Increased competition and relative saturation of key metro markets, coupled with government impetus has led to the affordable housing emerging as a new segment for a large number of housing finance companies. Refinance of housing loans by National Housing Banks (NHBs) will give further boost to the sector. 
• Industry estimates suggest that affordable housing finance is set to be a Rs 6 trillion market by 2022.

Key Challenges

• Despite all the excitement, there are still a number of issues that need focused attention for achievement for Housing for All. The biggest challenge is the availability of land in urban areas. Unless adequate land is made available, creating 20 million homes will be a distant dream. To this end, unlocking the potential of unused or under-used lands held by government bodies and PSUs can come to the rescue. 

Going Forward

• The next five years until 2022, will be action packed for the affordable housing space. Policy impetus coupled with various affordable housing schemes by state governments and an active private sector participation will result in tailwinds for the sector, making Housing for All 2020 a commercially viable opportunity. The devil, however, will lie in effective, efficient and expeditious delivery of houses to meet the set targets.

• That said, the affordable housing segment is at the tipping point to be the next big growth driver of the Indian economy, and can turnaround the fortunes of the sluggish real estate sector in the near to medium term.

Power Distribution Market, Size, Share, Market Intelligence, Company Profiles and Trends Forecast To 2022

Power Distribution -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 9, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Power Distribution Industry

Description

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Power Distribution -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

Distribution infrastructure growth 
• As of 2015-16, the aggregate distribution line length estimated by India Infrastructure Research stands at 9.28 million circuit km. Meanwhile, the transformer capacity stood at 633,190 MVA. 
• The aggregate energy sales by the discoms is expected to be about 807,506 MUs. 
• Besides, the year 2015-16 witnessed the lowest ever energy deficit of 2.1 per cent in over two decades. 
• The peak deficit also mirrored a similar trend and stood at 3.2 per cent in 2015-16 as against 4.7 per cent in the previous year. 
• The declining trend was fuelled by increasing generation and transmission capacity, a slump in industrial power demand and the subsequent poor offtake by discoms.

Request for Sample Report @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/2053394-power-distribution-in-india-2016

Some improvement in discom finances 
• Distribution utilities continue to reel in losses, though the amount of losses has reduced from Rs 696 billion in 2011-12 to Rs 534 billion (estimated) in 2015-16. 
• Out of 52 discoms, 35 discoms were running into losses as of March 2015. Private discoms continue to fare better than their state-owned counterparts thereby highlighting the need to run discoms on commercial principles. 
• Meanwhile, total income of discoms increased from Rs 2,816 billion in 2011-12 to Rs 4,613 billion in 2015-16 (estimated) – recording a CAGR of over 13 per cent. The year-on-year growth rate of total income stood at 7.7 per cent in 2015-16. 
• Total expenditure too increased significantly from about Rs 3,814 billion in 2011-12 to Rs 5,428 billion in 2015-16 – recording a CAGR of over 9 per cent. 
• Increase in expenditure is mainly due to a corresponding increase in’ power purchase costs which grew from Rs 2,684 billion to Rs 3,914 billion. 
• Launched in November 2015, UDAY marked a promising start to rescue debt-laden state power discoms. Power discoms reported losses of Rs 600 billion and accumulated debt of Rs 4.5 trillion as of September 2015. During 2015-16, UDAY bonds aggregating Rs 1 trillion were issued by Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, Bihar and Haryana.

Government programmes provide necessary impetus 
• The union government’s flagship programmes – the Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) and the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY) have provided the much needed impetus to the distribution sector. 
• Under IPDS, which focuses on strengthening of sub-transmission and distribution networks, Rs 258.8 billion were sanctioned for 3,597 towns in 30 states and UTs as of September 2016. 
• Go-live status has been achieved by 1,226 towns out of 1,405 towns covered under the “IT enablement” component, formerly known as the Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme of IPDS. 
• Meanwhile, under DDUGJY, which focuses on quality power supply to rural areas through feeder separation, xx funds have been sanctioned and xx disbursed as of xxxx. 
• Also, the increase in the pace of rural electrification under DDUGJY was a key positive during the year. Of the 18,452 un-electrified villages as of April 2015, 55 per cent have been electrified under the scheme and the remaining 7,692 villages are targeted to be electrified by May 2018.

Tariffs rise but competitive bidding scenario still bleak 
• Although retail supply tariff revisions have been more regular since 2011 following the Appellate Tribunal of Electricity’s directive, political interference still affects tariff determination process as poll-bound states refrain from increasing tariffs. 
• In the year 2016-17, the average tariff hike o discoms ranged around 5 per cent. Notably, most states did not increase their tariffs as specified under UDAY MoU, casting a shadow over the scheme’s ability to turnaround discom finances. 
• The gap between average cost of supply (ACS) and average revenue realised (ARR) stod at Rs 1.08 per kWh in 2014-15, down from Rs 1.27 per kWh in 2012-13. 
• Also, In the wake of increasing generation and low demand, the pace of long term power procurement through competitive bidding has slowed down. 
• While no new Case-II bids have been invited since the scrapping of Cheyyur and Bedabahal ultra mega power project’s bidding process in January 2015, only three states including Kerala (KSEB Limited), Andhra Pradesh and Delhi (TPDDL) finalised case-I bids since December 2014.

Operational performance and metering 
• The aggregate technical and commercial (AT&C) losses of discoms have increased from 22.58 per cent in 2013-14 to.24.62 per cent in 2014-15. 
• For 2015-16, AT&C losses of 49 discoms tracked by India Infrastructure Research ranged from 2.31 per cent (India Power) to 58.82 per cent (JKPDD). 
• Accounting of sold energy through metering is the first step to arrest these losses. Though metering coverage across industrial, domestic and commercial categories stands over 90 per cent in most states, agricultural metering lags at 40-50 per cent. 
• Meanwhile, certain utilities like Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited have adopted smart metering initiatives, many other utilitiesh have planned the same. 
• Other metering options such as pre-paid and net metering initiatives have also picked pace in many states.

Future outlook 
• As per India Infrastructure Research estimates, distribution line length is expected grow from 9.78 million ct km in 2016-17 to 11.68 million ct km in 2020-21. 
• During the same period, transformer capacity is likely to increase from 718,924 MVA to 1,127,076 68 MVA.

Freight Market in India 2017 Share, Trend, Segmentation And Forecast To 2022

Indian Freight  -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 9, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Freight Industry

Description

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Indian Freight  -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

Current Scenario 
• The current modal mix for cargo transportation is sub-optimal and skewed towards roads, which accounts for about 60-65% of the total freight transported. 
• India has the second largest road network covering about 5.47 million km, of which national highways account for 2% of the network and carry around 40% of the traffic on Indian roads. 
• The Indian Railways’ network comprises a total track length of about 119,578 km, with around 40% rail sections operating at 100% line capacity utilisation. Growth in freight traffic has almost plateaued at 0-1%, with the rail modal share declining to 30%. 
• Indian ports have a freight handling capacity of over 1,700 million tonnes. Of the total freight handled at ports, major ports account for a 57.19% share, while non-major ports account for a 42.8% share. 
• Air freight contributes a mere ~1% in the total cargo movement in India, moving around 35% of the total shipment value. 
• Coastal and inland waterways lack dedicated infrastructure and thus remain largely untapped for movement of freight. 
• The industry structure overall is highly fragmented, with unorganised players accounting for the largest share of business

Request for Sample Report @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/2471615-freight-market-in-india-2017

Emerging Trends – Growing capacity and rising scale of business 
• A shift from pure transportation business to end-to-end service providers has emerged, thereby facilitating growth of third-party logistics and supply chain management industries in India. 
• The rising scale of freight transportation has further encouraged a trend towards outsourcing non-core activities like logistics, warehousing, and associated activities to integrated players which has increased the share of the organised segment. 
• The freight segment across all sectors has witnessed significant capacity augmentation and adoption of advanced technologies. 
• Demand for logistics has been rising in Tier II and III cities, which has led to several third-party logistics and e-commerce players to expanding logistic operations in these areas. 
• Freight transport through roads and air have been witnessing an upward trend in pricing, while that of ports and rail have been witnessing a downward or constant trend

Opportunities Galore – New programmes to drive growth 
• Six major projects in roads, ports, inland waterways and railways – Bharat Mala, Setu Bharatam, district connectivity, Sagarmala, port-rail connectivity, 106 national waterways development – have been announced by the government, which will directly benefit the freight industry in future. 
• Hyderabad-based Air Excellence Aviation Private Limited plans to establish 100 business development areas with small airports, and 100 air logistics centres with airstrips for cargo handling in the country. 
• The shipping ministry has identified ~200 focus projects to be implemented by 2025 under the Sagarmala programme. 
• Based on master plans finalised for 12 major ports, 142 port capacity expansion projects worth Rs 914.34 billion have been identified for implementation over the next 20 years. 
• Further, 14 coastal economic zones covering all the maritime states and union territories have been proposed. 
• The Ministry of Railways has also identified additional dedicated freight corridors – North-South Corridor (Delhi-Chennai); East-West Corridor (Kolkata-Mumbai); and East Coast Corridor (Kharagpur-Vijayawada) – for implementation in the coming decade.

Outlook and The Way Forward 
• The overall outlook of the freight industry in India is very bright. The industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15-20% between 2015-16 and 2019-20. 
• However, to handle the growing traffic, significant investments need to be made for expanding, modernising and upgrading infrastructure, deploying advanced equipment and technology, and setting up of new storage and transit facilities. 
• Regarding GST, grey areas around increased compliance costs and credit blockages of the small players still exist. 
• Air freight in India needs to be revived through a comprehensive air cargo programme/plan. 
• Dedicated efforts will be required by government authorities/agencies to reduce turnaround time at ports and terminals. 
• Further, a coordinated approach towards capacity addition will be needed with regards to ports, as some regions have significant overcapacity, while others have low capacity.

M&A in Infrastructure and Real Estate 2017 Overview, Market Opportunities and Outlook

M&A in Infrastructure and Real Estate -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 9, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — M&A in Infrastructure and Real Estate Industry

Description

Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “M&A in Infrastructure and Real Estate -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Of Top Key Player Forecast To 2022” To Its Research Database

During 2016, the merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in India doubled to over $60 billion as compared to around $30 billion in 2015. Some big-ticket deals played a crucial role in driving the deal value to a record level, especially prominent in the oil and gas space. This was followed by other sectors such as pharmaceuticals, financial services and infrastructure. Factors such as debt restructuring, asset sales and easing credit conditions steered domestic consolidation, resulting in significant M&A activity in sectors like roads and power.

The cross-border deal activity also saw an increase despite global headwinds. While inbound activity was driven by relaxed FDI norms and stable macroeconomic environment, the momentum in outbound deals was added on account of domestic companies expanding global footprint. Going forward, the M&A activity is expected to remain vibrant through 2017 owing to a supportive policy framework and investors continued interest in India's growth story.

The good sides of the new mortgage stress rules introduced by OSFI

From Jan. 2018, the new policy will affect all forms of mortgages, whether high ratio with down payment below 20% or low ratio with down payment above 20%.

I projected the price growth for the condos following the first mortgage rules introduced in 2016.The second stress rules to be executed from Jan.2018 will push condos price higher and freeholds lower”

— Ali Salarian

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, November 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ali Salarian, Real Estate Broker and Vice President of Pay Per Service Realty, explains how the new mortgage stress rules introduced recently by OSFI are not all bad news. From Jan. 2018, the new policy will affect all forms of mortgages, whether high ratio with down payment below 20% or low ratio with down payment above 20%.
“I projected the price growth for the condos following the first mortgage rules introduced in Oct. 17, 2016. The second stress rules to be executed from Jan. 2018 will push condos price higher and freeholds lower” said Ali Salarian. Salarian’s projection did prove itself this year, even after the market slowed down in April 2017. For the first time, the GTA condos market has been able to exceed the 20% growth and to go ahead of freehold property till today due to less affordability. This trend continues with the new mortgage stress rules, which have a stronger effect since the rules cover all forms of mortgages. This means there will be more pressure on the bottom line price within $700,000 price mark and below. This can also be translated into more price reduction for any property above the said price, especially a million dollar property and above. Those out of the GTA market like Kitchener-Waterloo, Niagara region, and London-ON will experience higher growth as well, which may include freehold property since their prices are still within the affordable price. As a result, we may see families with 6 members and above moving out of GTA. The remaining months of 2017 might experience increase in demand and supply. However, this demand and supply will later decrease by the first quarter of 2018 due to the implementation of the new rules. The condos market in GTA will continue growing till 2020 / 2021 when there will be increase in the supply of under construction units in the market; this might be the turning point for condos to slowdown, leading to a future of no big deference in price between freehold and condos and eventually the rental market will become more stabilized.
I agree with the federal government’s mandate to reduce the Canadian overall debts and make the property affordable for the next generation nationwide, but this has affected the metropolitan markets more than the other markets by imposing blanket policy on all markets. I believe in introducing different policies for different markets and allowing the provinces manage their domestic markets based on their economic performance.
