The mega trade event that aims to unify the entire Indian lighting industry under one roof will be held in November 2022. The launch edition of Light + LED Expo India organised by Messe Frankfurt India and ELCOMA will provide exhibitors and visitors with planning flexibility and make way for stronger trade opportunities.

With the aim to reunite lighting industry stakeholders at an opportune time, organisers Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd and apex lighting body Electric Lamp and Component Manufacturers Association (ELCOMA) have announced that the biggest lighting exhibition in the country, Light + LED Expo India will make its debut from 3 – 5 November 2022 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

Talking about the launch edition, Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director & Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd shared: “LED Expo and Light India have created a niche in the lighting industry by being the top choice for trade. With the enormity at which these shows are hosted, there is no doubt that the launch edition of Light + LED Expo India will converge the entire lighting industry on a global level.”

“Our aim with this strategic merger is to make India a hub for investments in the lighting sector and to provide equal trade opportunities for domestic as well as international stakeholders. I am confident that the new dates will allow us to accomplish the goals we have set for the momentous platform,” Mr Manek elaborates.

While the launch edition of Light + LED Expo India has been postponed this year, the 2021 edition of LED Expo New Delhi will be held from 18 - 20 November as per the schedule.

Sharing insights on the Indian lighting industry, Mr Shyam Sujan, Secretary General, Electric Lamp and Component Manufacturers Association (ELCOMA) said: “The Indian lighting market is valued at INR 3 billion in 2021 and will register a year-on-year surge in the next three years at 10% to 11% with LED market having a share of 92% of total lighting value. This demonstrates that India has the potential to become the world’s most lucrative market for lighting and components industry. We want the exhibitors and visitors to make the most of the business opportunities offered at Light + LED Expo India and the dates for the upcoming edition were decided in tandem with the industry’s stakeholders.”

Covering the entire lighting ecosystem, the launch of Light + LED Expo India in 2022 will open doors to new trade opportunities for lighting and component manufacturers and suppliers, enabling them to strengthen their supply chain and tap into investments provisioned by the Indian government, under its Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme.
