With the large-scale development of India’s transportation infrastructure projects driving demand, pile driver manufacturers are seeking to launch newer and more digital products while maintaining price competitiveness. NBM&CW reports.
After a long period of interruption, the demand for pile drivers has strengthened again. According to infrastructure equipment manufacturers, demand has slowed due to the pandemic, which has limited construction work and labor supply. Due to work stoppages and idle machines, subcontractors and leasing agencies found it difficult to repay equipment loans and purchase new equipment. But the situation is changing, and there is a feeling that companies are recovering.
Now, as the government re-emphasizes the development of roads, expressways, subways, high-speed rail projects, ports, and terminals in second and third-tier cities, the construction industry has seen new growth in demand for foundation equipment. As the government is queuing to further expand large-scale infrastructure projects, current demand is expected to remain strong. There is a need for pile drivers that can work on hard and soft ground, as well as equipment that can undertake new construction techniques (such as continuous wall construction). As competition intensifies, manufacturers are formulating new marketing strategies to promote the sales of their equipment, and some people have even begun to rent their pile drivers. Casagrande India Country Manager Avers Rakesh Raina said: “As we continue to receive new inquiries, the demand for basic equipment seems to be positive. However, because European companies like us are developing high-quality global products, pricing pressures Very large. The Indian piling industry is dominated by leasing companies and small contractors that are still on the learning curve.

Our products will provide customers with better Low operating costs, and provide them with method instructions and share our rich knowledge and experience to successfully complete the task through the correct machine configuration. The reliability of the machine and excellent after-sales service enable us in such challenging projects leading.
“Despite the challenging business, we have maintained our leading position in the industry with proven solutions that meet the construction schedule, even when dealing with larger diameters of 1500-2000 mm. Our state-of-the-art technology To ensure better handling of large diameter piles and challenging hard soil layers. Our foundation carrier can be used for a variety of applications. With the appropriate conversion kit, our machine can be easily converted to other civilian basic applications, such as Dwall grabs, CFA, stone pillars, displacement piles, etc.
