News and Markets What do

News and Markets What do you expect from the Indian automation market in the next years? Indian industries have realised the importance of automation and are willing to make substantial investments as the cost of skilled labour is rising and production processes are getting speeded up without compromising quality standards. These factors are forcing Indian manufacturers to consider industrial automation as a viable option, despite the relatively high-capital costs. The automation industry is driven currently by the automotive, energy and process industry. The other sectors that also use automation to lower variance are the pharmaceutical industry, food and beverages, water and wastewater, cement, textile, metals, and the mining industry. The lack of skilled workforce is one of the major challenges faced in the country by most of the industries. The workforce is usually underutilised to their capacities by assigning lowerlevel jobs which restricts the growth of the employee and employer.

The product and service range of Pilz focuses on complete automation solutions. So the indian markets offers very good perspectives for us in the near future. Sanjay Kulkarni, Managing Director Pilz India Pvt. Ltd The new Indian Government which was formed in May 2014 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is decidedly “pro industry”. There are a lot of ambitious plans laid down and fostered by the new government, such as the initiative to build 100 smart cities and the comprehensive “Make in India” business promotion program which, among other things, aims at transforming India into a global manufacturing hub. With all these incentives it is safe to expect that the Indian economy will be growing at a high pace, and in that growth process, automation technology will definitely play a vital role. With our expanding network in India and the expertise of our automation engineers we are well prepared to help India achieve these targets.
