5. What trends have you noticed in the wire and cable industry in India?

Demand for wire and cable is directly related to the growth of the economy and infrastructure sectors. The government has taken major initiatives to boost infrastructure sectors like power, railways, roads and petrochemicals etc. India is expected to become the third largest construction market globally by 2022. The government has approved the plan of 100% electrification of railways by 2022.

The wire and cable market in India, which comprises nearly 40 per cent of the electrical industry, is growing at a CAGR of 15 per cent – thanks to the growth of the power and infrastructure sectors. The recent policy and regulatory initiatives and government schemes like Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana (UDAY), Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY), Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) and Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana have given the market a major boost.

In addition, the government’s ‘Smart City’ project is expected to promote large-scale growth in infrastructure, telecom, power generation, T&D, engineering and automotive sectors.

Cable & Wire Fair 2019Global investors now consider India as a potential market for high voltage (HV) and extra high voltage (EHV) cables. These investors increase their investments in the Indian cable market through technical collaboration with Indian cable manufacturers for production of EHV cables up to 400 kV. With increasing focus on renewables, the industry is now looking forward to supplying cables for solar and wind power applications in addition to oil and gas, railways and other specialized segments.

In addition, electric vehicles (EV) are expected to drive growth for cables and wires firms in a big way, and hence more power cables.

Also, growing market potential, increased adaption of new technologies by the utilities, growing importance of services that may be linked to digital technologies have widened the scope for the growth of the wire and cable industry in India.

6. What is your vision for your organization five years from today?

I want to take Tulip to the next level by launching a few more periodicals and events for other B2B verticals.

In addition, we have launched two events – Mommy & Baby Fair and Hygiene & Disposables Products Expo too.
