EDITORIAL Can India meet expectations? Dear reader, The expectations placed on the secondmost populous country on earth are high. That’s also the reason why India is one of the BRIC countries – countries for which a strong future in international trade is forecast. But do current industrial figures tell a different story? For example, a significant surge in German machine exports to India last year was followed in the first half of 2016 by a downturn in deliveries of about 8.5 % compared to the previous year. The German Mechanical and Plant Engineering Association is counting on growth this year only in the areas of drive technology, construction machinery, and pumps and systems. All other sectors in Indian business are currently experiencing a difficult environment. “We’re going to have to adapt to more short-lived positive and negative economic cycles in the machine manufacturing market in India in the future,” VDMA President Dr. Reinhold Festge said recently. But the German machine tool industry is still expecting a more positive trend in the future in India: While its greatest successes in India came in 2007 and 2008 with export sales of just under 300 million, the worldwide financial crisis led to a drop of 25 % in the two following years. Currently a reversal of the trend to positive can be observed. The machine tool market is expected to grow by 9 to 10 % in 2016 and 2017. Companies are therefore focusing primarily on the automotive industry and its suppliers in India. Significant growth is expected in this sector in the future. Nevertheless, numerous problems remain which must be ironed out in the next few years and State Premier Modi has promised to devote his personal attention to the issue. That includes above all better investment opportunities for foreign companies, improvements in the training situation and implementing the solution touted by an extensive advertising campaign: “Make in India,” which encapsulates everything India is hoping for: jobs, fewer barriers to investment, the development of industry and foreign investment. The upcoming WIN India trade fair will be another indicator for exhibitors and visitors alike of the progress India has made along the path to the future. You can find out more about the trade fair, new products and India itself in this edition. It remains to be seen whether India can fulfill expectations. We are certainly hoping it does!
