Vishwakarma, President of the 'All India Glass Manufacturers' Federation' AIGMF, Sanjay Somani, CEO of Hindustan National Glass along with Werner M. Dornscheidt, President and CEO of Messe Durseldorf GmbH, Lord Mayor Dirk Elbers opened the first GLASSPEX INDIA in New Delhi.
The Chairman of the Messe Dulseldorf GmbH Supervisory Board emphasized the economic significance of the sub-continent for the German and European export industry and referred to the growth opportunities for the Indian glass sector over the coming decades.
He added that in this context it is expected that revenue in India will triple in the next 20 years, the real estate market will grow by 30 percent and the pharmaceuticals market could grow at a rate of 12 to 13 percent. All these economic sectors glass plays an outstanding role, Elbers emphasized.
There are also enormous market opportunities resulting from the Indian plan of action on climatic change, which involves the development of solar energy from the current two megawatt level to 20,000 megawatts in 2020. Here Elbers commented: That is why the special show at GLASSPEX on the theme of solar energy generation will offer a sustainable value added for exhibitors and visitors alike.
With GLASSPEX INDIA Messe Durseldorf  is extending its business operations in India and adding a further member to its glass product family. At GLASSPEX INDIA a total of 135 companies are presenting their innovations to an expected 4,000 visitors.
In the process they are being supported by Messe Durseldorf, which has been active in India for more than 25 years and with its know-how as the organizer of the world's leading trade fair for the glass industry, glasstec in Durseldorf, brings the glass sector together every two years.
