INDIA EUROPE Automotive Partnership Summit on IAA-India-Day

The India Europe Automotive Partnership Summit will be held in the framework of the IAA-India-Day. It is going to be the most important industry expert gathering in Europe with the focus on the Indian market this year. The organizers expect between 30 to 35 stakeholders from quality Indian suppliers and between 120 to 150 representatives from European companies to attend. Responsible managers from companies like BMW, Bosch, Daimler, Maruti, among others, are invited to present their market and sourcing strategies.

The Indian automotive industry is recognized as having the highest potential for growth worldwide. In addition, the government has outlined significant aspirations for 2026: To reach five times of current levels in overall size and seven times current levels in exports – beside giving a mandate to quickly adapt regulations for safety and emission.

The challenges for the local suppliers are immense. They have to scale up their investments in new technologies like auto electronics, safety, engine management systems, light weighting, infotainment – beside becoming an important player in the global supply chain.

A collaboration with an international company is the preferred option for many of the Indian suppliers. During the event Indian component manufacturers will share their specific interests on collaborations. For European stake holders it is an opportune B2B platform to meet with potential Indian partners and suppliers as well as to evaluate their market opportunities.
