The occupied space marked a 90% rise in contrast with the launch edition of the show in 2013. Similarly, the global participation has also showed an upward tick of 34%, thanks to consistant sales and burgeoning auto component market in India, probably attracting auto component majors from across the world to attend the exposition.

Guenter Weber, Regional President – Automotive Aftermarket, Bosch Ltd, India said: “The Automechanika in Germany attracts all leading OEMs and Component Manufacturers from across the globe and has attracted millions of customers year after year. This is a great initiative to introduce the same platform in India wherein the Indian audience can experience world class innovations and solutions in automotive technology and we are proud to be associated as the Platinum Partner for the event.”
While speaking on Bosch’s expanding service portfolios, Weber added: “ACMA Automechanika New Delhi’s constant effort to push automotive technology forward reflects our company’s core strategy ‘Parts, Bytes and Services’ while we are also looking at launching few products, test equipment and service concepts during the show”.
In addition to sourcing and networking opportunities, the Indian fair has organised a seminar which is scheduled alongside the exhibition on February 27 and will bring together noted industry experts from India and overseas to share their valuable insights and international best practices in the key areas of R&D and innovation, advancements in mechatronic systems, sustainable mobility, fuel efficiency and emerging export markets. The one-day conference will also lay emphasis on road safety in dark hours and the changing mind-set of the Indian Auto-Components Industry from “Build-to-print” to “Build-to-intent.”
A burgeoning middle class with spending power and upward mobility along with India’s growing focus on vehicle safety assessments is set to stimulate demand for auto parts business and safety technologies. With Indian car buyers getting younger and used car market gaining momentum, demand in the automotive aftermarket is expected to gain further traction in 2015. Focusing purely on the needs of the growing aftermarket sector, ACMA Automechanika New Delhi will thus make an important sourcing destination for new ideas, tools and industry insights.
