BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA 2016 sees big names sign up from construction equipment industry

BAUMA CONEXP INDIA 2016 is going to be held at HUDA grounds in Gurgaon, Delhi, from December 12-15. Numerous big names in the industry have already signed up for BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA 2016. The show will set the perfect backdrop for those dealing with the construction and construction equipment sector, to gauge the current mood of the market along with finding the right mix of attendees to interact and deal with under a perfect ecosystem at the venue.

Why does such a show matter to the Indian and Global market?

According to the Construction Equipment and Building Material Machinery Association within the Verband Deutscher Maschinen-und Anlagenbau (VDMA - German Engineering Federation), India is currently the only Asian country able to point to a growing construction machinery market. Infrastructure development is commonly held to be the driving force behind this development. Even as per the German foreign trade and inward investment agency, Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) data, expressway construction in India in 2016-17 is to be expanded to 15,000 km compared with 6,000 km the year before. With a view to current conditions and the currently foreseeable factors, the British market research company Off-Highway Research arrives at a very favorable forecast for the next five years as well. It envisages the approximately 55,000 construction machines that the analysts expect to be sold in India in 2016, climbing steadily to more than 71,000 units by 2020. The top sellers, with a combined market share of over 90 per cent in 2020, are expected to be backhoe loaders, crawler excavators, mobile cranes, mobile compressors, compactors and wheel loaders.
This means for all those connected to the infrastructure, construction and realty sector, a show of this nature not only helps connect to various exhibitors, but also helps in engaging with industry experts, associations and overall visitors. The will help gauge the momentum that is building up in this sector.
The response received from the stakeholders so far is already overwhelming. In fact, expressing his delight with the response from exhibitors, Igor Palka, CEO, bC Expo India, which organises BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA says, “We have registrations from big names like ACE, Ajax Fiori, Ammann Apollo, ASTEC, BAUER, BKT, Case, Caterpillar, Columbia Machines, Haulotte, Herrenknecht, JCB, Kobelco, KYB Conmat, Liebherr, Linnhoff, Liugong, Macons, MAN, Marini, Masa, Potain, Putzmeister, Puzzolana, Sany, Schwing Stetter, Wacker Neuson, Volvo, Wirtgen and XCMG for the show.”

Even on an international level, the interest in the show remains unbroken, as Palka points out: “Joint booths from China, Germany, Italy, North and South America as well as Spain are already currently registered. A total of 28 countries will be participating at the event.  That clearly shows how important BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA is for international companies.”
The India growth story too has had a positive impact on the show. Over the years, BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA has been getting bigger and the footfalls and audience too have widened with every successive show.

This has had a direct impact on a need for a bigger venue. Hence, as a part of bc India’s expansion plans, it is now organising the 4th edition of the show at HUDA Ground, Sector 29, Gurgaon. The venue will provide a total area cover of 150,000 sq m space. The new venue also offers the visitors and exhibitors an easy access to the show. The Gurgaon Exhibition venue is just 20 minutes away from the Domestic and International Airport. This is expected to provide relief to those visiting Delhi just for the show immediately. The venue is located closely to numerous hotels ranging from high-end to budget hotels at close vicinity. They too are well-connected by roads and public transportation. In fact, the IFFCO Chowk Metro Station is just next to the ground. Above all, the sheer size and the experience of working on this venue is going overwhelming for the organiser as well visitors alike. The December expo is expected to showcase around approximately 700 exhibitors and will receive around 30,000 plus business visitors.
