India’s manufacturing sector has evolved from the initial phases of industrialization to liberalisation to the current phase of global competitiveness.  Backed by competitive technology and talent, today Indian manufacturing companies are now expanding fast into global markets. India is expected to become the fifth largest manufacturing country in the world by the end of 2020, and the government has set an ambitious target of increasing the contribution of manufacturing output to 25% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025.

That said, India still lags global giants like China, in terms of infrastructure and capabilities. Can India, with its traditional strengths in software services, address the huge gap in manufacturing efficiencies? Can Indian manufacturers take advantage of technologies such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data and improve efficiencies to a new level?  To get answers to these questions, join us at the ‘Smart Manufacturing Conclave’ – a conference conceptualized by Express Computer, India’s foremost business IT magazine, and part of the Indian Express Group.
