ELECRAMA, IEEMA’s largest stand-alone showcase of the Indian Electrical and Allied Electronics Industry, will take place from February 18th to 22nd, 2023, at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida. Under the theme “Reimagine Energy—For a Sustainable Future,” this edition will focus on innovation and future technologies in energy storage, green hydrogen, fuel cells, AI, and the Internet of Things. Furthermore, we will examine our commitment to sustainability through energy conservation, carbon net zero, and smart consumption.
Over USD 70 billion has been invested in renewable energy in India over the last seven years. A quick look at the manufacturing sector’s contribution to the country’s GVA reveals that it has traditionally contributed 16-17 percent of the GVA. Due to the COVID pandemic and decreased demand, this fell to 14.4 percent in FY 21. Furthermore, the Electrical and Allied Electronics industry’s contribution to the manufacturing sector ranges from 6.5 percent to 7 percent and has remained nearly constant over the last five years. The country’s total equipment exports have grown at a 10-year CAGR of 11.7 percent, while imports have grown at a CAGR of 2.4 percent. The contribution of electrical equipment exports to total exports has been consistent over the years and has been estimated to be 2.8-3.1 percent. Electricity penetration in allied sectors will rise by 2047, as will the industry’s position as a leader in future technologies and across the value chain. Some of the key exhibitors briefly discuss their perspectives and areas of focus during the 5-day ELECRAMA 2023.
