whenever we see the activities and engagements of PMI chapters we hardly see engagement, involvement and leadership other than IT sector. Being construction industry is very much adopt project management and we hardly see chapter events tailored to meet the requirement of construction industry and other sectors.

I wouldn't generalize this as the longer standing PMI chapters did, in fact, have a strong emphasis on construction engineering first before the IT-focused members ranks started to grow. A chapter reflects its membership and if the majority of its membership are either working on construction or technology projects, that will affect its focus.

I would suggest that PMI global headquarters should start by addressing neglected industries and then engage Chapters to be the front-line for this advocacy.

One tactic to do so would be to look at extensions to the Disciplined Agile toolkit specifically for such industries.
