The world’s seventh-largest economy, India, is set to become the third-busiest construction market on the globe, according to a new report, “Global Construction 2030” from Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics. Bolstered by its booming population, rapid urbanization, healthy income growth, expanding middle class, and steady flow of foreign direct investments into real estate, India is on pace to surpass Japan. According to the report, India will be the world’s third-largest construction market by 2021, and grow at twice the rate of China through 2030.
3D printing is already making an impact on the housing and construction sectors — but many think we are only at the start of unlocking its full potential. The advanced technology has the potential to reduce both the time and cost of building new homes, with many believing that this technology could be one stop towards solving the ongoing housing crisis.
At Pressalit Care we applaud all the initiatives in developing high-performance buildings, as it is a major economic opportunity and a vital environmental responsibility for the entire world. The essence of high-performance buildings is to make sure they are performing optimally because at the end of the day those buildings will be housing people.
As we create better working environments, naturally, better housing solutions emerge and this is vital: 75 percent of the 43 million Americans aged 65 and older are living in their own homes, and nearly all of them plan to stay right there.
Keep living are the two words we use at Pressalit Care when we need to sum up our core values: respect for people and their right to a good life, regardless of their functional capacity. We do not accept physical restrictions that can handicap a person when it comes to daily activities in the home.
Our goal is a better life for people with mobility disabilities, a better working environment for those who help them and better, longer term solutions for those who need to invest. That is why we also care about the improvements in the building industry.
