2024 ACMA AUTOMECHANIKA NEW DELHI PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY
Organisers say the show is a gateway to tap into the fast-evolving Indian automotive aftermarket
With the rapid growth in vehicles and new launches on the rise, India’s automotive aftermarket is gearing up with solutions that are both innovative and enduring.
Customers have started to move towards larger/more powerful vehicles across all segments.
According to the Auto Components Industry Review by ACMA, private and commercial vehicles production in 2022 increased by ~20 percent and ~30 percent respectively due to increased demand and fewer supply chain disruptions as compared to FY21.
Set to return in 2024, ACMA Automechanika New Delhi will kick off on the 1st of February 2024, bringing the latest aftermarket advancements in the auto components industry.
The three-day event will witness the who’s who of the automotive industry converging at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi to take advantage of endless business opportunities presented, make connections and build new relationships.
“Growing demand for long-distance travel and crossover vehicles further raises the need for regular maintenance and vehicle parts replacements,” ACMA Director General, Vinnie Mehta, said.
“India’s automotive market has a strong growth potential, resulting in increased demand for automotive parts. The country has also witnessed the rise of new entrants in the mobility space. “India had a trade surplus of 700 Mn USD for auto components demonstrating a strong demand for exports.
“The mega event will serve as a hub for networking and collaboration, both locally and globally, as well as a platform for discussing key issues and trends in the industry.”
The vibrant automotive sector and rising vehicle ownership in rural markets of new and used vehicles are driving demand for aftermarket auto components in India. The auto-components industry has grown 23 percent year-on-year on the back of strong exports performance and replacement market growth.
The steady progress in India’s automotive industry has caught the attention and focus of the world’s leading manufacturers of vehicles and components over the last decade. India is the third largest car manufacturer globally and an emerging global hub for automotive component sourcing and manufacturing.
“With India emerging as a key global market for automobiles and auto components, ACMA Automechanika New Delhi 2024 will provide a unique opportunity for industry stakeholders to come together and showcase the latest technologies and solutions for the aftermarket,” Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd Executive Director and Board Member, Raj Manek, said.
“Mutual collaboration within the industry is important now more than ever and ACMA Automechanika New Delhi will be the convergence point to take these discussions ahead and enhancing business networking and overall exhibition experience for the industry.
“With focus on sustainability, digitalisation, and electrification, the fifth edition of the trade fair, will be an ideal showcase of the fast-evolving Indian aftermarket.”
Heading for its fifth edition, ACMA Automechanika New Delhi will continue to play a key role in overall development of the mobility and logistics industries. The three-day trade fair will witness fringe programmes including knowledge sessions like conferences and panel discussions, association meetups, live demonstrations and much more.
Messe Frankfurt says the Automechanika brand is recognised as one of the most influential events for the aftermarket business globally and ACMA Automechanika New Delhi is one of 14 Automechanika fairs held across Europe, Asia the Americas and Africas.
