-A Report from ACREX India 2017 Expo
The Indian economy is estimated to grow at 7% during the financial year 2016 spanning April 2016 to March 2017 - perhaps the fastest growth rate among the major economies of the world. Various segments of the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) industry have grown at a healthy clip during 2016, and the industry is optimistic about the next year.
