bolster the domestic supply chain and strengthen the automotive industry from
its very core.”
to reports that US based electric car company Tesla is setting up a base in
India, Manek added that “With world’s leading electric car company setting up
its base in India, it will be just a matter of time before the first fleet of
electric cars arrive in India. Thus, a more resolute approach towards
e-mobility by OEMs will largely benefit in the long term.”

forward, the focus of our automotive trade fairs will not just be aimed at
creating a safe and healthy atmosphere for channel players to promote their
businesses but also enabling them to develop collectively as one integrated
industry,” concluded Manek.
Mehta, Director General –ACMA stated that “The excitement is mounting as the
biennial ACMA Automechanika New Delhi, the flagship Aftermarket Expo, draws
closer. To be organised jointly by ACMA and Messe Frankfurt, the event is being
held at an opportune time as the automotive market gains momentum post the
pandemic hiatus. The expo, probably, the first of its kind in the 'real world'
since the lockdown, will be a ‘HYBRID’ one. Bridging the best of a physical and
online exhibition, the one-stop sourcing platform will provide a preview of the
latest aftermarket innovations and a sneak-peek into shapes of things to come.”
the automotive industry expected to recover fast and grow in double digits in
most segments, the expo will be a booster shot to bring the industry back on
track. It will also help consolidate India’s position as a major manufacturing
hub for automotive components. Apart from a strong presence of domestic and
international aftermarket product exhibitors, the popular business event will
not only attract the domestic buyers but also the international OEMs and
aftermarket distributors,” Mehta elaborated.
