Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, Bureau of Energy Efficiency who was also present at the inauguration as well as conferences at Light India said: “Consumers need to know the investment benefits to adopt LED and I believe cost and credibility will be key drivers of change from GLS & CFLs to LEDs. The government’s mission is to encourage bulk procurement and chart out quality standards for lighting products as that will create demand and bring down prices and Light India has become an important event for the lighting sector as the industry converges to show products and expertise and reach out to users.” Noting the increasing demand, he further added: “By 2020, LED will be the largest selling technology in the market.”

With an impressive line-up of LED and new lighting technologies on the show floor, Light India saw the launch of:

Taking about the enormous potential and opportunities that the Indian market presents, Mr. Yoichi Ibi, President and Chief Executive Officer, Toshiba Lighting & Technology Corporation said: “Light India is an interesting platform as exhibitors here are not just displaying products but lighting concepts. Indian market holds a lot of potential and we are considering coming back at the next edition of Light India.”

Foraying into the Indian market with big plans, Mr. Albert Zomer, Head of International Business Unit, Opple Lighting said: “You can’t be a global leader if you are not in India and with Light India being the largest fair for the lighting sector, it was a fantastic opportunity to present ourselves here. This is the first time we are displaying our products at such a scale in India. We want to grasp specifics of the Indian market and understand what the consumer wants. We met many distributers and potential customers interested to do business. Taking note of their feedback, we plan to add more products to our portfolio.”

Thrilled with the numerous orders and response received at the fair Mr. V.P. Mahendru, Chairman-Managing Director, EON Electric Ltd. said: “The platform has helped us introduce our product to the right target segments and reach out to many more customers. Right from the inspiring message from the Minister during inauguration to the visitor response and conference sessions, the show has been very positive for our business.”

Crompton Greaves Limited also picked Light India as a platform to showcase its new range of Facade LED lighting, smart series of LED downlighters. When asked for feedback, Mr. Ramesh Kumar N., Product Line Head of Lighting said: “It has been an enriching experience at Light India with new learnings and many important business leads for immediate closure. We could engage with prospective partners and discuss collaborations and supplier agreements. This is a great platform to know about the innovations taking place across the industry.”

Realising the energy and cost saving potential of LEDs and their long term benefits, several architects, interior designers, project consultants, town planners and government sector professionals visited the fair to understand how they can adopt these in urban planning and future projects. Mr. Sourabh Gupta – Managing Director, ARCHOHM Consults who visited the fair said: “Light India presented the perfect offering for a host of our projects in
architecture, landscape, urban design, interiors and product design and after several discussions with the companies present here we have decided to work with Trilux, HPL, Havells & Anchor for our upcoming projects. We have also tied-up with Trilux for the Lucknow International Memorial center by the Govt. of UP and will be commencing work on it soon.”

Mr. Prabhat Kumar – JT. GM Electrical BSNL Corp Delhi who also attended the fair with the intention of sourcing and exploring energy saving lighting alternatives mentioned: “The showcase of Jaguar lighting for home, wall, landscape and street lighting technology is very useful to BSNL’s large infrastructure expanse which ranges from commercial spaces, recreation centers, staff quarters and project lighting operations. We will explore these technologies further for usage at our Delhi operations.”

Aimed at encouraging the future development of lighting and LED industry, Light India also saw five knowledge seminars hosted by notable industry associations including the Energy Research Institution (TERI), Institute of Interior Designs, Delhi (IIID), International Solid State Lighting Alliance (ISA) and Bracecorp Publications.
