CapEx is a database about the current investment projects in India that would create productive capacities in the future.
It is a database of investment projects that involve the setting up of new capacities - about the announcement of such projects, their implementation and their final culmination into new capacities.
The CapEx database captures projects that entail a capital expenditure of Rs.10 million or more. It contains information on projects recorded by CMIE since 1995.
The CapEx database records the announcement and then the progress in implementation of investment projects. The database is a lot more than a mere listing of projects.
The CapEx database captures new projects being announced, tracks the various events of the projects in its radar and captures the end of the project. The life-cycle of a project ends when the new capacity is created and deployed into production. Sometimes, the end is less rewarding. A project may get abandoned before its completion. Or, its implementation may get suspended because of some reason. The CapEx database tracks projects through their various journeys and eventual conclusion. In a sense, it captures this life-cycle of projects.
The CapEx service provides detailed information on individual projects. Information is collected from all public sources and also through direct contact with the companies engaged in executing the projects.
A useful derivative of the CapEx database is the set of aggregates that are generated using the project-level database every quarter. This includes aggregates of the value of new investments, the completion of projects or even the value of investments that are stalled during a quarter or a year.
The CapEx database provides a range of projections of new capacities expected in the near future.
