COVID-19 to Obstruct Growth due to Uncertain Market Scenario in Global Construction and Real Estate Development Sector
COVID-19 has a major impact on the economic activities and labor-intensive sector of infrastructure and construction development across various parts of the globe. The stringent regulations and lockdowns had brought all the ongoing construction activities to a halt, resulting in the sudden contraction of the construction market. The surge of COVID-19 cases across various parts of the globe also discouraged investors from risking their investments in the market, which decreased the cash liquidity and further intensified the crisis.
According to the latest research study published by the International Labour Organization on post COVID problems and ongoing problems in the industry, post the two subsequent COVID-19 waves, the scarce availability of laborers on the construction sites due to mass migration, the Indian construction market, and infrastructure development activities have reduced at an extensive rate. The substantial decrease in demand for commercial outlets in malls and commercial buildings and the noteworthy reduction in the demand for residential buildings has further restricted ongoing activities across the market. Thus, reduction and obstruction in construction activities is anticipated to create a short term decrement in the global market. However, after 2020 the market is projected to witness a decent recovery in the global market.
The disruption and complete breakdown of the supply chain of the construction industry is another cause of concern for the market. Directives from various governments to ban the transportation of non-essential goods and commodities in international and national markets have caused a great imbalance between the procurement of the raw material and the actual requirement at the construction site. A complete imbalance in the supply and demand of raw materials has decreased the efficiency and output of the construction industry.

For instance, according to the data published by ANAROCK Property Consultants, in 2019, in the top 7 cities across India, out of total 1,816 housing projects, about 52% were high-rise buildings with a 20 plus floor structure, which itself implies the increasing requirement of these pumps in the global market.
Severe Shortage of Labor and Need to Adopt Automation in Construction Industry to Aid Growth
These pumps are capable of the faster, easier, and effective transportation of concrete across various construction sites, reducing the requirement of laborers and site congestion. The ability of these pumps to provide steady and streamlined operations with lesser requirements of laborers operational at construction sites can provide new growth avenues to the market. According to recent estimates, the labor shortage is estimated to be 50% to 60%, which demands novel and innovative equipment and solutions that can circumvent the problems associated with labor scarcity.
Breakdown of Concrete Pump Leading to Halt of Construction May Hinder Growth
The possible breakdown of these pumps can prove severe at construction sites as it can bring entire operations to a halt and cause waste of ready-mix concrete. The catastrophic failure of these pumps might injure the laborers operating at the construction site and can sometimes damage the developed construction. Although these can be minimized with timely maintenance and repairs of these pumps, the possibility of severe breakdown cannot be ruled out. Considering the repercussions of a major breakdown, many real estate developers rely on the conventional transportation of concrete mix, which can curb the application and sales across diverse regions.
