The year 2018 has been a good one for infrastructure and capital goods companies, with 30 per cent growth in new order inflows. Nearly all the growth was fuelled by government and public sector orders, while private sector orders were conspicuously missing.

The data compiled by Business Standard shows that listed capital goods, construction and infrastructure companies reported combined order wins of more than Rs 2.67 trillion in calendar year 2018 (till December 24). This is 30 per cent higher than the Rs 2.05 trillion reported to the exchanges in 2017 and also the highest since 2015.
