The growing demand for laboratory equipment and analysis technology on the Indian market will be one of the main issues addressed at this year's Analytica Anacon India trade fair, where some 140 exhibitors from 13 countries will present their latest products and innovations to an audience of Indian professionals on all three days of the fair.
Mumbai/India & Munich/Germany – Due to India's big food industry, the country is strongly affected by international quality and hygiene standards. To ensure compliance with growing requirements, the Indian government has decided to increase the number of laboratories from 72 to between 250 and 300 facilities, explains Susanne Grödl, Exhibition Director for analytica in Munich, the upward trend in the Indian industry. “New requirements in the sector for food safety and the latest developments in pharmaceuticals production have led to high growth rates on the market for laboratory and analysis equipment. And thanks to large investments, among other things, this growth is expected to continue in the future.”
Grödl expects a market growth for analysis and biotechnology instruments by more than one billion US dollars. Furthermore she estimates the Indian industry to need additional capacities of more efficient analysis techniques and new methods for the improved recognition of possible dioxin or pesticide residues in food.
