bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2024: powered by pioneering technologies and key partnerships in the construction ecosystem

May 6, 2024

The construction equipment industry in India is on the upswing, driven by several factors such as rapid infrastructure development, mining and urbanisation. bauma CONEXPO INDIA will bring together all these demand and supply-side forces at the India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR, from 11 to to 14th of December 2024.

In 2024, India's construction and mining equipment industry witnessed a 26% year-on-year growth in equipment sales, including strong demand from export markets. This growth trajectory presents a significant opportunity for innovation and product diversification not only for Indian manufacturers but also for companies from around the world, and poses certain challenges in terms of building a thriving ecosystem of component suppliers, skilled service providers and future-ready R&D capabilities.

As a result, the show is deepening relationships and expanding networks with national and international equipment manufacturers and construction associations. Some of the key partnerships in the country include the Indian Construction Equipment Manufacturers Association (ICEMA), Builders Association of India (BAI), Construction Equipment Rental Association (CERA), Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE), Spanish Manufacturers Association of Construction and Mining Equipment (ANMOPYC), Cranes Owners Association of India (COAOI), Construction Federation of India (CFI) and many more.

Growing international participation

As an integral part of the global network of bauma trade fairs in Europe, Asia and Latin America, bauma CONEXPO INDIA has become an unmissable platform for buyers and suppliers, offering a breathtaking experience of next-generation construction technologies in action, insightful conferences, buyer-seller meetings, interaction with key government decision-makers, a live demo area, award ceremonies, networking events and much more.

Attracted by India's strong infrastructure growth potential, the upcoming edition will see greater global participation with over 800 Indian and international exhibitors across 135,000 square metres of exhibition space and more than 75,000 trade visitors expected from over 100 countries.

An unmissable conference programme

Digital technologies such as AI, IoT and automation are transforming every industry, and construction equipment is on the cusp of adopting these disruptive, transformative technologies. However, technical partnerships between equipment users and manufacturers are crucial for innovative technologies to be developed, priced right, and delivered to the remotest regions of the country. Therefore, this edition will launch a series of more than 30 conferences and technical sessions, including the Quarry Forward conference, during bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2024. These conferences will focus on a range of topics including equipment finance, telematics, automation, AI/IoT, skills development, sustainability and much more.
