    Messe Muenchen India announces partnership with India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA)

    • Messe Muenchen India and ICEA will join forces to focus on Display Manufacturing at electronica India 2022 and productronica India 2022.
    •  This partnership will bring together the entire value chain of display electronics under one roof.
    •  This step is closely aligned with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s focus on increasing domestic electronics manufacturing through additional incentives.

    Messe Muenchen India and the India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) recently joined forces to promote the display manufacturing ecosystem at electronica India 2022 and productronica India 2022, to be held on September 21–23, 2022, at the India Exposition Mart Ltd. (IEML), Greater Noida. This partnership contributes to support the Government of India’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat to make
    India self-reliant in electronics manufacturing.”

    About its partnership with Messe Muenchen India, Pankaj Mohindroo, Chairman, ICEA, said, “Demand for displays in India is likely to reach $20 billion by 2025 with our current emphasis on Electronics Manufacturing in India and becoming Aatmanirbhar. The massive thrust on raising electronics manufacturing from $75 billion to $300 billion is the primary reason for this huge buoyancy. We are getting ready to build display fabs in the country as there is no better time to focus on building this strategic core industry in India. ICEA, in collaboration with Messe Muenchen India, will offer a platform to invite the complete ecosystem at a common place to promote display manufacturing in India. We will support more such outreach initiatives in the future as they are necessary for growth of the entire electronics manufacturing sector.”

    Achieving the $300 billion growth target

    In keeping with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s (MEITY) vision of taking Indian electronics manufacturing from its current value of $75 billion to $300 billion by 2026, ICEA recognizes the role of global partners to achieve this ambitious goal. Rajesh Sharma, Executive Director & Principal Advisor, ICEA, said, “With the latest incentives, the entire ecosystem of electronics manufacturing including chip-based semiconductors, lithium-ion batteries, and display fabrication has been covered. Now we are at an important stage of establishing domestic capabilities, and ICEA has been working tirelessly to build the vast supply chain that is necessary for a thriving manufacturing market. We are happy to partner with Messe Muenchen India as their shows are trusted platforms for awareness creation and knowledge sharing among all key stakeholders along the supply chain.”

    Continuing the legacy of leadership
    As leading trade fairs in the electronics manufacturing space, electronica India and productronica India have served the industry’s interests for several years now. As the country emerges as a leading manufacturing hub through targeted incentives and policy focus, the shows will play an even more important role in bringing together buyers and sellers along the supply chain. Reiterating the importance of partnership with ICEA, Bhupinder Singh, CEO, Messe Muenchen India, said, “The Indian government has recently announced a $10 billion scheme to boost semiconductor and display manufacturing in the country. All this potential will only be realized through the combined power of state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and seamless synergy between demand and supply-side partners. The core strength of our shows lies in establishing these synergies through our high-level conferences, extensive technology portfolio, buyer-seller meets, and networking opportunities. We are proud to join hands with ICEA and work towards building a dynamic supply chain ecosystem in the country through our exhibitions.”

    Dr. Martin Lechner, Executive Director Business Unit New Technologies, Messe München, added, “Messe Muenchen India trade fairs have been contributing significantly towards connecting Indian manufacturers with global suppliers. We believe that our collaboration with ICEA will stimulate innovation and catalyze growth in the field of display manufacturing in India.”
