EDITORIAL Motion, Drive

EDITORIAL Motion, Drive and Automation Peter Becker – MDA Technologies – Opportunity and potential Dear readers, “With 1.2 bn people and the world’s fourth-largest economy, India’s recent growth and development has been one of the most significant achievements of our times.” This quote taken from the World Bank’s India Country Overview from 2013 indicates the rising significance of India as a country in the global community and as an emerging economic super power. Many experts expect India to become one of the three leading economic powers by 2050. It’s a long and rocky road to get there. But the current Indian government has got the ball running with, e.g., reforms to boost the country’s infrastructure or initiatives to encourage the use of energy efficient technology. Of course, this has positive consequences for the drives and hydraulic markets – both in regard to the rising demand for technology supplied by foreign companies as well as for the manufacturing sector in India itself. This expectation is shared by our experts in this issue of MDA TECHNOLOGIES. For instance, Paladugu Srinu, Senior Manager Voith India, states that the expected addition of power plants in order to meet India’s growing power need may benefit drives manufacturers. Hydraulic specialists are in demand to respond to the needs of construction equipment manufacturers as India’s construction market is forecasted to become the third-largest in the world by 2025. India’s role as an emerging economic giant is reflected by its selection as partner country of Hannover Messe 2015, too. As you can see, there is huge potential for engineering technology manufacturers in India. Therefore, it might be beneficial for you to travel to New Delhi in December. From 10 to 13 December, World of Industry (WIN) India opens its doors for the second time at the Pragati Maidan fairground. We give you a comprehensive overview of what to expect at both fairs, the one in India and the one in Germany. And, as usual, you will find plenty of application stories regarding motion, drives and automation in this issue of MDA TECHNOLOGIES.
