In 2009, In­dia be­gan a plan of re­plac­ing four mil­lion in­ef­fi­cient in­can­des­cent bulbs with CFLs by 2012. By 2013 sev­eral In­dian states an­nounced plans of re­plac­ing some 200,000 flu­o­res­cent tube­lights with LEDs. They (LEDs) re­main a mi­nor­ity in the In­dian mar­ket with only three to five per cent mar­ket share as ex­ist­ing CFL users are less will­ing to con­vert to LED light­ing. The bi-an­nual LED Expo

2016 has cre­ated an ideal arena for LED and light­ing sec­tor since years. Com­pa­nies from In­dia and abroad come to­gether with cost-ef­fec­tive and com­pet­i­tive LED so­lu­tions for the In­dian mar­ket at this global plat­form hosted by Messe Frank­furt Trade Fairs, a global leader of in­dus­try’s highly re­spected Light + Build­ing fairs. This year, the LED Expo 2017 was held at Bom­bay Ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre, Gore­gaon from

11th - 13th May.

This year 202 com­pa­nies ex­hib­ited at LED Expo 2017, which in­cluded 110 In­dian com­pa­nies, and 84 in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies. The for­eign con­tin­gent was ably rep­re­sented by com­pa­nies from coun­tries like China, Tai­wan, Hong Kong, Korea among others. Amongst these, the Chi­nese had a strong pres­ence at LED Expo 2017. The LED Expo al­ways cre­ates an ideal arena for LED and light­ing sec­tor play­ers to show­case new trends in con­nected light­ing, data-en­abled street light­ing for smart cities, in­no­va­tions in lu­mi­nar­ies, light­ing con­trols, wire­less tech­nol­ogy, among other emerg­ing tech and trends.

The sig­na­ture event of the expo, the LED Sum­mit with “Smart So­lu­tions for Fu­ture Light­ing” was the main topic of dis­cus­sion for the lead­ers in LED light­ing sys­tems. Sev­eral top­ics like Adapt­ing Wire­less Tech­nol­ogy to Light­ing Con­trol, Af­ford­able Light­ing So­lu­tions: Projects, Next Gen­er­a­tion Con­nected Light­ing: New Trend in the Light­ing In­dus­try were hot top­ics of dis­cus­sion at the sum­mit. Held con­cur­rently with LED Expo – In­dia’s premier ex­hi­bi­tion on LED light­ing prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies, the fourth edi­tion of LED sum­mit took place on

12th May at the Bom­bay Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

Raj Manek, MD, Messe Frank­furt Trade Fairs said, “With the strong back­ing of gov­ern­ment and reg­u­la­tory author­i­ties, LED Expo con­tin­ues to move ahead to­wards its goal of pro­mot­ing en­ergy ef­fi­cient light­ing in In­dia.”

Some of the noted In­dian com­pa­nies par­tic­i­pat­ing in the expo were Os­ram, Led Fix­tures In­dia, Cres­cent Light­ing, Hielind Asia, Wago In­dian Pvt Ltd, Mean­well, Ar­chi­tec­tural Light­ing So­lu­tions, Opu­lus, Emerg­ing Tech­nolo­gies, Swing­tel etc.

LED Expo Mum­bai has re­ceived able sup­port from Min­istry of Elec­tron­ics & In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Department of In­dus­trial Pol­icy and Pro­mo­tion Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try, Ma­ha­rash­tra En­ergy Devel­op­ment Agency (MEDA), Bri­han­mum­bai Elec­tric Sup­ply and Trans­port Un­der­tak­ing (BEST), Elec­tronic In­dus­tries As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ELCINA), So­lar En­ergy So­ci­ety of In­dia (SESI) and In­dian Build­ing Congress (IBC).

“Com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing the next phase of LED im­ple­men­ta­tion, LED Expo has once again brought to­gether sev­eral new in­no­va­tions. The LED Sum­mit will cover sub­jects of in­dus­try im­por­tance and Smart So­lu­tions for Fu­ture Light­ing. To­gether, the plat­form fea­tures prod­uct demon­stra­tions, re­search re­sults and at­tracts in­ter­est from key de­ci­sion mak­ers mak­ing it ideal for busi­ness,” said Raj Manek, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor and Board Mem­ber of Messe Frank­furt Asia Hold­ing Ltd. The LED Expo is con­tin­u­ally act­ing as cat­a­lyst which is sup­ple­ment­ing in­dus­try growth.

Driven by pri­ori­ti­sa­tion of sus­tain­able mea­sures and var­i­ous en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency pro­grammes of the gov­ern­ment, LED tech­nol­ogy is not just here to stay but to grow. More­over, ad­vance­ments in LEDs are cre­at­ing sig­nif­i­cant im­pli­ca­tions on the busi­ness of light­ing, elec­tron­ics and the en­ergy ecosys­tem. Re­mark­able in­ter­est has been gen­er­ated in in­tel­li­gent light­ing so­lu­tions for res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial seg­ments as well as au­to­mo­tive light­ing and this edi­tion brought a host of such in­no­va­tions to the show floor.

Or­gan­ised by Messe Frank­furt Trade Fairs In­dia Pvt Ltd, this was an ideal ground for light­ing de­sign­ers to learn more about the trans­for­ma­tive po­ten­tial of LEDs on health and en­vi­ron­ment.
