ABB India said, “The increased demand for technologically superior solutions, coupled with the government's capital expenditure focus on new-age themes such as energy efficiency, decarbonization, and digitalization, has significantly driven our order momentum. We have achieved an 88% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1 and 2) compared to the baseline year of 2019.”

With respect to its outlook, the company stated, “India has been able to stay the course on its growth momentum and capex revival despite geopolitical challenges across the globe. With this background, ABB India is likely to balance and deepen its existing presence in traditional segments while leveraging opportunities in emerging sectors to drive quality growth. Higher capex in infrastructure, railways, renewables, power distribution, water, energy, commercial buildings, and metals are likely to provide necessary opportunities for growth.

Policy driven public sector capex, with investments in energy transition, FDI in steel, cement, and incentivizing local production (PLI) in areas like specialty steel and battery manufacturing will also augment the opportunity landscape. While navigating the market segments and the opportunities, the company will closely monitor the impact of geopolitics on business issues and trade, the cyclicity of heavy industries, volatility in commodity prices and foreign exchange, and the impact of inflation on cost and interest rates.”

ABB is a leading global technology company. Its business areas include electrification, process automation, motion (drives and motors) and robotics & discrete automation.
