electronica India 2013 and productronica India 2013 to feature extensive programs



With support from various electronic associations like Electronic Industries Association of India (ELCINA), Consortium of Electronic Industries of Karnataka (CLIK), LED products Manufacturers' Association, India (LEDMA) and others, India's leading trade fairs on electronic components, systems and applications and electronics production, electronica India 2013 and productronica India 2013, is poised to kick-off and provide innovative platforms to domestic electronics manufacturers to meet the consumption of electronics in India. According to the Task Force Report, released by the Government of India, the demand for electronics hardware in the country is projected to increase from USD 45 billion in 2009 to USD 400 billion by 2020. The estimated production in India will reach USD 104 billion by the year 2020, creating a gap of USD 296 billion in demand and production. This creates a unique opportunity for companies in the ESDM (Electronic System Design & Manufacturing) sector to look at India as their next destination to cater to the domestic Indian demand as well as act as an exports hub. This edition of the trade fairs will also feature a seminar by ELCINA on - Enabling A Competitive Eco-System for Electronics Manufacturing - EMS and Automotive Electronics. The seminar will touch upon topics of automotive electronics and potential and reality of EMS. Renowned personalities from the Industry would be powering the conference. Mr. Rajoo Goel, Secretary General, ELCINA, says: "The Indian Electronics Industry is entering a very exciting phase with upcoming opportunities presented by a growing market and the newly announced National Electronics Policy. While eco-system challenges exist, the development of specialized clusters and liberal capital investment incentives provide an excellent opportunity for domestic as well as global players to cater to the Indian market and also serve international markets." Along with the exhibitions, the trade fairs will also feature conference on LED Technologies organized with support from DeitY (Department of Electronics and Information Technology). Top academicians, research scholars, Government officials and global expertise will provide an insight to the key issues for the growth of the sector. The conference will provide a platform to the buyers and the manufacturers to interact and to avail of the information on current industry trends. "Sector specific Industry exhibitions like electronica India and productronica India play a critical role in providing efficient platforms bringing buyers and sellers together and displaying new and upcoming technologies. I believe that these events are important for disseminating information and keeping players around the world abreast with the latest developments, especially in a fast changing and evolving sector like electronics" adds Mr. Goel. Surface Mount and Light Emitting Diodes (SMALED) conference in its second edition is the one to look out for. This conference offers a unique focus on SMT and LED manufacturing technologies to manufacturers and assemblers across India which is well timed, considering that over 40per cent of the components are currently imported. It will also provide attendees with an opportunity to examine, learn and debate business-critical manufacturing issues through industry discussions, technical collaborations and information sharing with international experts from the field. "Future holds great opportunity for the Indian electronics industry especially with the domestic demand on the upswing year on year. With the additional support now being extended by the Indian Government, things should get better," says Suresh Nair, Director, Leaptech Organised by MMI India, the trade fairs will focus on providing the much needed boost to the Indian electronics manufacturing industry which has hitherto shown sluggish growth in the past couple of quarters. This industry is heterogeneous in nature and has a critical role to play in the overall Indian economy. The electronics manufacturing industry, which contributes over two per cent of GDP, is expected to rise to around five per cent by 2015. Mr. Bhupinder Singh, Deputy CEO, MMI India says: "It is a great privilege to bring forward the fourteenth edition of the trade fairs. We are confident that the show will bring in fresh impetus to the otherwise robust and diversified electronics industry in India and will also act as a catalyst in breaking new ground, making the industry a power to be reckoned with on the global arena." electronica India and productronica India will take place on 4-6 September, 2013 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. electronica India productronica India
