Jointly held with IPCA Expo, the synergies between the trade fairs have resulted in the setting of these new records. The trade fairs took place from September 26–28, 2018 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre in Bengaluru.

The Innovation Platform for the Industry

In view of these record figures, Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe Muenchen India, states, "electronica India and productronica India are the trade fairs representing the electronics community in India. We are pleased with the overwhelming results and extremely positive feedback from our exhibitors on the quality of attendees. The huge participation at the networking forums has reinstated our position as the most important innovation platform for the industry."

"We witnessed a phenomenal number of footfalls at our booth that enabled us to experience and plan for immense growth opportunities. Also, the ambience at the venue was extremely conducive for growth and we are very happy with the hospitality and the organizational abilities displayed by the team at Messe Muenchen India,” said Prasad Bakre, head—India, Sumida Trading Pte Ltd.

"We have been doing business in India for more than ten years now and we are a long-term exhibitor at electronica India. The event has helped us in building a solid customer base and each season we are connecting with more and more potential clients at the trade fair. We are pleased to see the response and are also looking forward to enhancing our production processes in India to efficiently serve a growing customer base," said Kai Hold, marketing manager, PIC GmbH.

"electronica India and productronica India are very stimulating trade fairs for the electronics sector as they provide tremendous opportunities for exhibitors to showcase their latest technologies. One of our primary aims of participating in these trade fairs is to display our latest products to all our potential customers. All in all, the trade fairs have been very fruitful for us, from the point of developing new business connects," said D. N. Srinivasa, sales manager at Mahindra CIE Automotive.

The growth potential of the Indian electronics market is reflected by the presence of eight country pavilions including China, Germany, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and for the first time the European Union and Sri Lanka.

Designed to fulfill the needs of the growing electronics industry, eight conferences and workshops took place during the three days. While the Advantage India summit focused on the trends in the mobile manufacturing market in India, the e-Automotive conference deliberated on the future of mobility in the Indian automotive sector. The conferences, highlighting upcoming technological trends, were very well attended.

The CEO forum, the India PCB Tech conference and the IPC India workshop also covered the entire electronics eco-system and discussed the key concerns shared by the industry.

Expanding Business Network at the Buyer Seller Forum

Buyers from all industry sectors looking for innovative, new-to-market electronics technologies met participating exhibitors at the Buyer-Seller forum on all three show days. The fully-packed lounge witnessed engaging discussions between decision-makers. More than 1,250 individual meetings took place with brands such as Bharat Electronics, Hella Automotive, Samsung India, Secure Meters, Valeo to name a few.

"electronica India and productronica India trade fairs are growing each year. The exhibitions are interesting every year with some of the most advanced and disruptive technologies being showcased. Buyers like us are hugely benefited by attending. We have also interacted with several exhibitors and closed some discussions with serious sellers. It was a great a experience interacting with most sellers and we are really excited to again attend the trade fairs," said Hardeep Singh Gill, representing Bharat Electronics Limited.

"Overall the trade fairs have been extremely successful. The response received for the next edition in Delhi is also overwhelming and we are looking forward to even bigger editions of the trade fairs," Singh concluded.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

It’s been a crazy week, with lots of bad news coming out of Ukraine. (I’m a news junkie by trade, but I confess that some days I just unplug from the news completely to avoid overdosing on negativity.) And, as you might have guessed, this is all having ill effects on our electronics supply chain, which is already stretched thin. This is reflected in our IPC news item that shows an uptick in PCB sales in February, but a drop in bookings YOY, in part due to the trouble in Eastern Europe. But there’s positive news in this week’s top reads. We have a NextFlex article about an innovative flexible technology called flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) and a great interview by Dan Beaulieu. We also have a column by Travis Kelly, who discusses PCBAA’s efforts to lobby for American manufacturing in Washington. And last but not least, let’s welcome our two newest columnists, Paige Fiet and Hannah Nelson, who discuss their excitement about entering this industry.
