The construction industry is changing rapidly, and new materials and technologies are being introduced on a regular basis. Execution of construction projects and their timely delivery has become a prime concern for developers in view of the buyer sagitation on delay in construction.Rising industrial, residential and commercial growth is driving demand for faster construction and world-class quality. It has become imperative to use newer products and technologies to meet this increasing demand. The construction industry in India is at the cusp of problematic change with new materials, building innovation, software, digitization and artificial intelligence changing the manner in which we conceptualize, build, and use our buildings.Private developers are continuously exploring new technologies that improve the quality, strength and safety of the buildings. In metro cities, few developers have started using self-climbing formwork, aluminium shuttering, precast concrete techniques and drywall systems. These advancements are practical, but offer advantages such as minimal labour required, higher earthquake resistance, more durability, bigger floor covering territory, smooth finish on walls, and lower upkeep. Such technologies not only reduce the turnaround time but also improve the quality and durability of construction. The purpose of this study is to find difficulties in using the new technologies in construction industries.  This study is conducted to identify the factors that affecting the implementation of new technology according to contractors and engineer through a questionnaire survey.  Data is to be collected using questionnaires which will be distributed among engineers and contractors of small- and large-scale construction companies. The data will be analysed and solutions are to be recommended. The finding of this paper is useful for construction industries for achieving effective performance in constructions.
