India continues to be one of the most dynamic aluminium markets. Demand is driven especially by infrastructure projects there. This development is also reflected by ALUMINIUM INDIA 2021.

India is among the fastest growing aluminium markets. The industry is expanding its capacities and investing in new technologies to satisfy the rising demands in the energy, transport, construction and packaging sectors.

ALUMINIUM INDIA 2021 will mirror how this market is developing early next year. From 4 to 6 February the biggest industry event on this subcontinent will take place in Bhubaneswar, at the heart of the Indian aluminium industry. The trade fair will be accompanied by the renowned INCAL Conference organised by the Aluminium Association of India (AAI).

2,500 visitors and 120 exhibitors from India, China, North America and Europe are expected to visit the 7th edition of ALUMINIUM INDIA – ranging from international technology providers to regional producers and processors.

Growth markets e-mobility, electric systems and smart cities

In India it is especially infrastructure projects that drive growth and open up market opportunities for the aluminium industry. One of the biggest projects here is the modernisation of the power grid but commercial construction and smart cities are also inducing demand.

India also wants to take e-mobility to the next level: by 2030 30% of all new vehicles registered are to be e-vehicles, from 2030 only passenger cars with battery drive are planned to be registered. State funding for this has increased markedly. The two Japanese manufacturers Toyota and Suzuki have already announced the wish to jointly develop a model exclusively for India.
