Specialist congress Alcastek to accompany the trade fair
More than 100 exhibitors from 20 countries will present themselves a few weeks from now at ALUMINIUM INDIA 2010 in Mumbai. The trade fair had its premiere in one of the fastest growing aluminium markets only last year. Now the second edition is to follow from 25 to 27 February. At the Bombay Exhibition Centre, aluminium manufacturers, aluminium processors, technology suppliers as well as end consumers will come together – ALUMINIUM INDIA will display the entire value creation chain for this material.
All the key players in the Indian market will be represented in Mumbai, among them Balco, Fata Hunter, Indo Foil, Jiwanram Sheoduttrai Group (J.S. Group), Five Solios, Pyrotek or Wagstaff. Bhoruka, India’s leading extruder, is also taking part in the trade fair as an associate sponsor.

With the Foundry & Casting Pavilion as well as the Extrusion Pavilion, the trade fair also offers two joint theme stands. German and Russian companies will present themselves in the respective national pavilions, among others.
Alcastek: Congress to accompany the trade fair
IN 2010, ALUMINIUM INDIA will again be accompanied by the Alcastek International Conference, the internationally renowned congress on aluminium casting, rolling and extrusion technology. The two-day technology forum, which will be held for the fifth time already, is the most important meeting place in this sector in India for experts from industry and politics.
The lecture programme will cover the entire aluminium production and processing chain. But the congress will also focus on the situation of the Indian aluminium market after the crisis and on energy issues this year. Speakers will include experts from Alcan, Nalco, Sapa, Dubal, Emal or Novelis.
Growth market India
India is one of the fastest growing markets for the aluminium industry. While the per capita consumption of aluminium in India is still one of the lowest (approximately 1 kg per capita), the subcontinent already takes eighth place in absolute production figures and also holds some 10 percent of the world’s bauxite deposits. Demand comes primarily from the electrical, transportation, packaging and construction industries.
