Contemplating the upward trajectory of India’s electronics manufacturing trade, Bhupinder Singh, CEO, Messe Muenchen India, explains how this trade can leverage international alternatives by growing a thriving home provide chain by way of commerce festivals of worldwide requirements equivalent to electronica India and productronica India 2022.

Electronics has emerged as one of many dawn sectors within the Indian manufacturing panorama at present. How can commerce festivals assist to maintain and develop this momentum?

Electronics manufacturing in India has grown significantly over the previous couple of years. This may be seen in elevated cell phone exports by almost 75% from final fiscal. Additionally, home manufacturing has virtually doubled to Rs. 5.5 lakh crore in 2021 from Rs. 2.43 lakh crore in 2015-16. There’s an insatiable urge for food for next-generation, cost-effective digital merchandise, and this may enhance exponentially within the subsequent few years with rising revenue ranges and better web penetration. The Authorities of India (GOI) has outlined a $300 billion imaginative and prescient for this trade by 2026, however a thriving provide chain is the pressing want of the hour. To leverage the multiplier impact of investments on this sector and the huge ocean of world alternatives, a sturdy provide chain have to be created inside the nation. This is not going to solely enhance employment and enhance the Indian economic system however will make the home trade globally aggressive in the long run. That is the place commerce festivals like electronica India and productronica India play an important function. By bringing collectively main home and international electronics firms below one roof, our commerce festivals assist forge partnerships and unlock enterprise alternatives among the many varied stakeholders within the international electronics provide chain.

How will electronica India and productronica India 2022 empower the trade to construct and scale its home worth chain?

After we say that our commerce festivals allow significant handshakes and unlock enterprise alternatives, we discuss with each speedy worth creation by way of buyer-seller offers in addition to long-term partnerships between international suppliers and native distributors, programs designers, part producers, and many others. Our deep understanding and reference to the electronics ecosystem in India, mixed with the worldwide character of the electronica and productronica manufacturers (in Munich and China) ensures that yearly our commerce festivals in India are extra carefully aligned with the Indian trade’s pursuits. Whenever you take part in our exhibits both as a purchaser or an exhibitor, you aren’t solely constructing your individual enterprise however weaving your pursuits into the bigger trade panorama of the nation amidst the presence of thought leaders and choice makers at our exhibitions and conferences.

Therefore, our exhibits are supported by main authorities ministries together with the Ministry of Electronics and Info Expertise (MeitY), Ministry of House Affairs, and Ministry of Exterior Affairs, in addition to main trade associations such because the Digital Industries Affiliation of India (ELCINA), India Mobile and Electronics Affiliation (ICEA), India Electronics & Semiconductor Affiliation (IESA), and Indian PCB Circuit Affiliation (IPCA). These partnerships assist us deal with the entire electronics worth chain.

Semiconductor manufacturing has come into focus as an space the place India can emerge as a pacesetter. How can electronica India and productronica India 2022 assist this mission?

In December 2021, GOI introduced a $10 billion scheme to advertise this ecosystem, and Indian firms have sufficiently established their strengths in fabless semiconductor design. Now could be the time to leverage these strengths, construct synergies, and scale semiconductor manufacturing (wafer fab) and outsourced semiconductor meeting and testing (OSAT) within the nation. This requires efficient knowledge-sharing, engagement, and alignment of pursuits amongst varied gamers, be it wafer fabs, OSAT firms, gear suppliers, uncooked supplies, specialty gases suppliers, water therapy firms, and many others. With this purpose in thoughts, we’re launching the India Semiconductor Conclave at electronica India and productronica India 2022. The trade and authorities can look ahead to this as a specialised platform for information and experience sharing, efficient interfacing between patrons and suppliers throughout the worth chain, and policy-level discussions to ascertain India as a worldwide vacation spot for semiconductors – each design and manufacturing. This yr the India Semiconductor Conclave will embrace conferences on India’s semiconductor ecosystem and show manufacturing, in addition to a particular pavilion by MeitY on coverage interventions for these segments. This platform will enhance in scale over time to come back.

The world’s ESDM fraternity is coming to electronica India and productronica India 2022 at Better Noida this September. What can they anticipate to find about India’s manufacturing ecosystem on this platform?

We anticipate an amazing turnout for our commerce festivals this yr. We now have witnessed elevated participation from segments equivalent to semiconductors, shows, digital designs, PCBs, embedded programs, and plenty of extra. Thus, patrons will witness a wider vary of world applied sciences and improvements first-hand. As a customer, you possibly can anticipate to satisfy small, medium, and huge international gamers at this expo for profitable collaborations. Our exhibits are curated to provide most returns on targets for each guests and exhibitors by way of well-planned exhibition areas, curated conferences, and focussed buyer-seller boards. We optimize these platforms by way of real-time knowledge analytics so that every participant has a significant expertise at our exhibits. Mixed with our co-located exhibits like IPCA Expo, MatDispens India, and Good Playing cards India, we’re assured that electronica India and productronica India 2022 might be crucial vacation spot for the trade this yr.     

electronica India and productronica India 2022 are coming to Better Noida this yr after a profitable present in Bengaluru final yr. Why Noida and what are your expectations from this version?

With a sequence of State Authorities incentives from Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and Haryana along with Central Authorities incentives by way of PLIs, the ESDM panorama in North India is increasing quickly. Therefore, we have now obtained an amazing response from each exhibitors and purchaser teams who’re searching for aggressive, higher-value offers from this area. In comparison with the 2021 version of our exhibits, we have now seen elevated participation from Indian firms. NCR has an unlimited vary of producing models for cellphones and equipment, automotive programs, elements and batteries, digital elements, LED & lighting, two and four-wheeler automobiles, and energy provides. Thus, I anticipate the 2022 version to be an amazing platform to uncover market potential, make the appropriate sourcing selections and unlock enterprise alternatives for distribution, JVs, ToTs, and many others. Hope you’ll not miss all of the motion at electronica India and productronica India, to be held on 21-23 September 2022, on the India Expo Mart, Better Noida.
