Volvo Buses In­dia reg­is­ters mile­stones

Commercial Vehicle - - WHAT'S INSIDE - In­dian bus AC mak­ers brace for good run Chi­nese dragons & In­dian tigers SCV mar­ket – strong growth ahead Au­tomechanika Frankfurt 2014: Sum of parts! Cum­mins’ en­gi­neers elec­tronic edge for Tata Var­roc ramps up in ex­pec­ta­tion of mar­ket re­vival

Hav­ing hit the cu­mu­la­tive do­mes­tic sales mark of 5,000 units and trained 25,000 driv­ers, the company is well-po­si­tioned to ex­pand the scale and scope of its op­er­a­tions. The bus AC mar­ket may be small in ab­so­lute num­bers, but there is no short­age of in­ter­est­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Dr. Aul­bur draws upon a Roland Berger re­port to tell us, that among other as­pects, the global CE in­dus­try is char­ac­terised by two im­por­tant de­vel­op­ments. Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers want to move beyond a slow­ing do­mes­tic mar­ket while In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ers are poised to ben­e­fit from a re­cov­ery in the in­fra­struc­ture sec­tor. Dr. Wil­fried Aul­bur, Man­ag­ing Part­ner & CEO, Roland Berger Strat­egy Con­sul­tants In­dia sum­marises a re­cent re­port put out by his firm that takes stock of this vol­ume driv­ing seg­ment. The world’s lead­ing trade fair for the au­to­mo­tive spares in­dus­try dis­played a wealth of in­no­va­tions and tech­nol­ogy. New fit-for-mar­ket low-cost common rail en­gine is the linch­pin of Tata Mo­tors’ strat­egy for con­tin­ued dom­i­nance of the heavy truck mar­ket. The auto comp maker has regis­tered a scorch­ing pace of growth thus far. Its di­ver­si­fied port­fo­lio puts it in prime po­si­tion to ben­e­fit from the ex­pected uptick in the auto in­dus­try.
