Q.In your opinion, what could be the challenges and opportunities offered by the Indian Market in the forthcoming year?
Slow change in mindset of the consumers at large is the biggest challenge in India. The over-dependence on site work and use of decades-old practice of using outdated resin technology is still in demand. This has crippled the growth of the industry.
