Indian Wire, Cable, Tube and Metallurgy Trade Fairs well booked so far

As the No. 1 trade fair for the wire and cable industry on the Indian subcontinent Wire & Cable India will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India, from 5 to 7 October. Co-located with the top events Metallurgy India/Tube India International as well as India Essen Welding & Cutting, (organised as a joint event by Messe Düsseldorf India and Messe Essen GmbH), all four trade fairs present technology highlights from the metallurgy, wire and cable industries and the tube industry as well as from the industrial areas of cutting and welding for the sixth time now.

The three trade fairs Wire & Cable India, Tube India International and Metallurgy India are organised and held by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and its Indian subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf India as well as the Confederation of Indian Industry. The organisers expect a total of some 400 exhibitors from 25 countries. At this early stage many Indian and international companies have already registered for participation. There will again be group participations from Italy, Austria, France and China.

On display at Wire & Cable India will be machines and plants for wire production and processing, forming technology, spring-making technology, cable and stranded wire machines, tools and auxiliaries for process engineering, measuring and control technology, all types of wires, rolled wire, bare wire, bars, sheet metal as well as special wires and cables.

Tube India International presents the complete range from tube production to tube processing as well as the tube trading segment. The spectrum includes raw materials, tubes and accessories, tube manufacturing machinery and used machinery as well as tools for process engineering and auxiliaries, measuring and control technology.

Metallurgy India presents the entire portfolio of the metallurgical industry with electrical and automation technology systems. Together the three trade fairs cover the complete spectrum of metal working and processing. 

Conceptual and technical support for the Indian trade fairs comes care of the international associations IWCEA (International Wire and Cable Exhibitors Association), IWMA (International Wire & Machinery Association), ACIMAF (Italian Wire Machinery Manufacturers Association), WCISA (Wire and Cable Industry Suppliers Association) USA and ITA (International Tube Association).

The Indian associations SWMAI (Steel Wire Manufacturers Association of India) and AIWMA (All India Weldedmesh Manufacturer`s Association) are also at hand with their country-specific insider know-how. 

Germany is India’s biggest trading partner in the European Union. The trading volume between Germany and India has tripled over the past ten years. The demand for plant and machinery is moderate, the Indian automotive industry, however, reports positive sales figures. 

In the construction sector strong investment in civil engineering, for streets, canals, bridges, railroad and energy projects positively impact the business climate while the real estate sector already faces first dips.

Nevertheless, the demand for wire, cable and tubes in India continues to be high. Despite the global steel crisis and excess production capacities in China the Indian economy posts strong growth for these areas.
