The power sector in India continues to remain one of the governments primary focus areas, as increasing number of reforms involving digitalisation are expected to be implemented in the next few years. In the long term, reform is also expected to take place at the distribution level, including privatisation and a shift towards renewables, in which India has committed itself to an ambitious target.
In the transportation sector, the development of the metro lines across India, the modernisation of the railways, and focus on building more and better airports indicate that these are up for expansion in the near future.
Oil and Gas are also expected to undergo a period of transition as the case for renewables becomes undeniably stronger.
