The 2019 edition showcased renowned market key players such as Trumpf, IPG Photonics, Coherent, SLTL, Suresh Indu Lasers and Wuhan Raycus and facili­tated a platform for emerg­ing compa­nies to exhibit their inno­vations to focused visitors. The trade fair brought together quali­fied profes­sionals from diverse sectors such as auto­motive, manufac­turing, science and academia, medical, defense, diamond industry and machine tools. Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe Muenchen India: “The show has been a catalyst in accele­rating appli­cations of lasers in various sectors. This step is in align­ment with the Make in India Campaign.”

Tarun Mendiratta, director at IPG Photonics India also commented on the trade fair: “Laser World of Photonics India provides a very good platform for us to connect with a vast number of customers as well as integrators. The seminars also provided opportunity to connect with R&D centers and academia, which is of substantial help for businesses.”

The trade fair also hosted a line-up of supporting programs which were successful in garnering great response from industry professionals, such as the CALM Conference 2019, the 3D Manufacturing Summit, as well as the Additive Manufacturing Zone, and the Laser Live Zone.

In addition, the Buyer-Seller Forum was very well attended and appreciated by the buyers. Aseem Singh Rawat, scientific officer at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, commented on the Buyer-Seller Forum: “The Buyer-Seller Forum is a good platform where we can interact with important sellers, clarify our doubts and find solutions. It is a well-organized platform provided by the organizers. It gives a broader view on the currently available technology and its applications.”

Laser World of Photonics India brings together and connects the entire laser ecosystem in one arena, which is why Laser Industry Association of India (LIAI) chose the trade fair for the formal announcement of its inception. The aim of this association is to promote laser and its applications in various industries and form an advocacy group for the laser and photonics industries.

Claudia Sixl, exhibition group director of the global Laser World of Photonics cluster concluded: “After establishing a strong global footprint with Laser World of Photonics, we are happy to see that we successfully adapted the global laser and photonics scenario to match the requirements of the Indian market.”
