Electrolube, global manufacturer of electro-chemicals recently exhibited at the EFY Bangalore (part of India Electronics Week 2017) and reported some real differences to previous events. The electro-chemicals manufacturer, who set up an extensive new manufacturing facility in Bangalore last year has reported new changes in market demand, based on the high frequency of enquiries from visitors to this year’s event.Electrolube’s prior experience of EFY Bangalore has largely seen a major drive in visitor enquiries for LED and associated protection solutions. This was still very much the case at the event last week, however, an unprecedented number of enquiries demonstrated a strong marked shift in interest for automotive electronics protection solutions. The Indian auto industry is growing rapidly with several major car manufacturers investing heavily in various segments of the industry. This has also attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 15.79 billion between 2000 and 2016, according to data released by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).
