Over the years, how has the event Bauma conexpo India proved, grown to be an important meeting place for the Indian construction machinery industry?
Fairs like Bauma Conexpo India holds great potential for customers and exhibitors alike. While it offers customers a one-stop-destination for all their specific product needs, it provides exhibitors a chance to build their visibility and showcase their unique solutions, apart from interacting with leading industry participants. This successful outreach will in turn equate to potential buyers and bolster our own image as a leading brand to be reckoned with in the industry. Product diversification and customer review are the key accomplishments we have achieved through our new product launches in Bauma Conexpo India in the past. We hope for similar results in the current edition also.
How is Bauma conexpo India different from the rest, over the years how has it grown? The take away or learning experiences each year after it is held in India.
We at Schwing Stetter India find Bauma conexpo India very convenient to launch new systems and products and to connect with the Indian and International base of customers. It has its own advantages as instead of travelling through India to showcase our offerings, we do it through Excon or Bauma Conexpo India. It aids our marketing activities in India, especially in Northern region.
Tell about the differentiating factors between Bauma ConExpo India and Bauma Munich, China, the experience of operating in India market. The highlights.
It is unfair to compare each of these exhibitions like Bauma ConExpo India and Bauma Munich, China as it is addressing different target audience because Bauma Munich has a reputation as the real global exhibition for construction equipment where one can easily meet customers from South America, Pacific Islands, African and Asian markets apart from Europe and Middle East. Bauma Shanghai predominantly focuses on China, East Asia and visitors from Middle East and Africa whereas Bauma Conexpo India is in a very nascent stage and just got settled in Gurugram and it has a long way to go for becoming an exhibition firstly South Asia and the countries interested in India.
Construction equipment market in India is projected to surpass $ 5.3 billion by the end of FY2024. Do you think this expo like this will have an important role to play? Your views on the same?
Of course, it will, the market and exhibition will grow on the strength of each other and one day it will be in the comparable level of Bauma Munich and Bauma Shanghai.
According to you cite us the major factors that will boost the demand for construction equipment market in India; expos like Bauma play a crucial role. How? Your take?
Given that the government is currently investing in infrastructure projects towards the development of roads, highways and coal mining, this is expected to trigger the construction equipment (CE) business over the next 10 years. This will spur major growth for the Construction Equipment sector given the demand to develop rural infrastructure. We have also aligned our products to suit key government projects like Bharamala, Sagarmala, DFCC, Clean India, Skill India, etc.
