The manufacturing sector in India is emerging as a powerhouse sector since the dawn of Industry 4.0. Government initiatives like “Make in India”, “Smart Cities Mission” and “Digital India” are playing catalyst in the development of this sector, leading India and its manufacturers through a revolutionary change in the way they function. India’s manufacturing sector has the potential to touch USD 1 trillion (INR 65,000 crore) by 2025*. To sustain this kind of progress India needs combined efforts from all the industries, the government and use of best in class set-ups by manufacturers. Driven by this objective, the organisers have launched a dedicated pavilion on Smart Manufacturing – Future Factory at the Smart Industry Solutions India (SIS India) to be scheduled from 13 – 15 December 2017 at Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.
SIS India is a one stop platform to access end to end manufacturing solutions exhibited by technology-leading companies. This prime business trade fair will be a focused solution providing platform to address the needs of “Future Factory”. Agreeing to the sentiment, Mr Dattatreya Gaur, Vice President, Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions Private Limited said: “Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing is a “must adopt” practice for Indian manufacturing industry to compete in the global digital economy. Future Factory will present colleagues in the industry with a one-stop shop to learn, network and acquire partners in implementing future ready manufacturing practices. Together with the organisers, we will ensure that each edition of the event is packed with innovation, live learning exhibits and disruptive content.”
SIS India will showcase technologies for a wide spectrum of industries including automotive, oil and gas, chemicals, food & beverage processing, pharma, packaging, machine tools, warehousing, electrical & electronics and plastic and rubber.
For its launch edition in Mumbai, the exhibition has confirmed a line-up of sector experts like Siemens Ltd, BCIL, Pepperl n Fuchs Pvt Ltd, Pilz India Pvt Ltd, Bettinelli Automation Components Pvt Ltd and Murrelektronik Pvt Ltd who are on board along with other leading companies like, Micon Automation Systems Pvt Ltd, S.I Systems, Shihlin Electric, Dynotech Instruments Pvt Ltd, Imaginon Tech Ventures Pvt Ltd, Renishaw Metrology, Samwon Tech Co Ltd, Siboni SRL, Trimos India Pvt Ltd, Vero India Software Pvt Ltd and Wika Instruments India Pvt Ltd.

We see Smart Industry Solutions India as a critical learning and networking platform for the manufacturing industry. I look forward to working with the organisers to support them in developing this much needed platform in India.”
India has already been witnessing a massive leap in business infrastructure due to Industry 4.0 also known as fourth industrial revolution. The manufacturing sectors are now inclining towards future factories where industries are seen adapting to designs and automation techniques that will increase the production, keep the quality intact and be cost effective. With the right use of powerful resources like big data, high computing capacity and artificial intelligence, IoT and industry 4.0 will be the game changer for the Indian manufacturing industry.
Keeping in mind the advancements needed for future factories and industry 4.0, the three-day fair will also host a Live Application Zone. This is a concept where the organisers and the system integrators will work closely to demonstrate and promote latest automation solutions through a live application. This zone will provide visitors insights about the opportunities and challenges involved in building a digital supply chain for an enhanced customer experience through live demonstration of high end solutions. A two-day conference will also be held by Frost and Sullivan to highlight the future of manufacturing in India and how the country is coping with IIoT.
As a meeting ground for technology players and manufacturers to network, Smart Industry Solutions India will bring to the fore effective technologies and automation solutions that can enhance and change the overall working structure of industries in India.
The exhibition is being jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd and Thinc - The International Collaborative together with German companies Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH and P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG.
