Messe München India and ELCINA enter into a strategic partnership for promotion of domestic electronics manufacturing at electronica India 2016 and productronica India 2016
- Partnership to create growth opportunities for electronic manufacturing in India
- To provide a knowledge sharing and learning platform for the stakeholders
- Create opportunities for international companies to invest and collaborate with the Indian companies for technology and knowledge transfer
This partnership combines both: Messe München India’s expertise in bringing the world’s leading electronic components and production technology suppliers at electronica India and productronica India and ELCINA’s (Electronics Industries Association of India) strength to deliver world-class manufacturing solutions for the electronic manufacturing companies in India.
The cooperation comes at the right time because the demand for electronic goods are expected to reach USD 400billion by 2020. So the Indian government’s initiatives to promote manufacturing and investment in this sector puts India high on the list of potential places to invest.
Established in 1967, ELCINA has been India’s first industrial association supporting the electronic components sector and has a membership base of over 300 companies. It advises the Indian government on policy and business environment issues for the electronics industry. ELCINA also focuses on promoting the manufacturing of electronic components, electronic parts, raw materials, Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) for segments such as Consumer Electronics, IT, Telecommunications Industry, Defence Electronics, Industrial Electronics, Medical, Automobile, Security, Lighting, Electronic Design, Embedded Systems and more.
electronica India and productronica India are India’s and South Asia’s leading trade fairs for electronic components, systems, applications and production technologies. Last year, these trade fairs in New Delhi were attended by 15,435 visitors and witnessed participation from 353 exhibitors, representing 634 companies from 16 countries including China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and USA.
Mr. Vikram Desai, President of ELCINA, expressed satisfaction on the partnership between ELCINA and Messe München India and said, “There was an urgent need to promote ‘Brand India’ in electronics and find new opportunities enabling rapid growth of manufacturing. ELCINA’s and Messe München India’s partnership will promote and achieve this objective.”
In the words of Mr. Rajoo Goel, Secretary General of ELCINA, “We are very pleased to form a strategic partnership with Messe München India. The trade fairs, electronica India and productronica India are the leading trade fairs for the electronics industry that are well attended by decision- and reform-makers. This will be a win-win partnership for ELCINA, Messe München India and the entire electronics industry. We are sure that we will synergize to develop opportunities for the Indian and global companies to collaborate at electronica India and productronica India.”
This year, electronica India and productronica India stand larger than the previous edition of Bengaluru. electronica India has been fully booked seven months prior to the commencement of the trade fair. The space for productronica India is filling fast. International players and market leaders from different continents will be exhibiting.
Visitors will profit from the valuable synergies which result from the stronger international representation and a broader range of products with the increased exhibition space.
Mrs. Nicole Schmitt, Director Exhibition Group, Messe München said, “Under the flagship program ‘Make in India’, many foreign electronics manufacturers have established their manufacturing base in India. With ELCINA as our strategic partner there will be high interest by the global electronics industry to look at India as an investment destination.”
Further, Mr. Bhupinder Singh, CMO & Member of the Management Board, Messe München India added, “This partnership will not only promote Indian manufacturing but will also aim to bridge the gap between policy makers (government) and manufacturers (exhibitors) by bringing the electronics eco-system at a single largest platform.”
Parallel to the trade fairs, there will be first-rate accompanying programs, Buyer-Seller meetings and Business to Government (B2G) forums. ELCINA and Messe München India will bring new initiatives such as ‘India PCB Tech, ‘CEO Forum and ‘ELCINA Startup Pavilion’ (exclusive for ELCINA members) to the trade fairs.
The trade fairs will take place from 21 – 23 September 2016 at BIEC, Bengaluru. For more information, kindly visit www.electronica-india.com or www.productronica-india.com .
