The Special Sections of IPF June 2017 edition comprises of Machine & Cutting Tools; Auto Components & Accessories; and Aerospace & Avionics. Since the early 2000 the Indian machine tool sector has had a stagnant growth as there was a considerable decline in the manufacturing sector investments. This changed in the beginning of 2002 and since then, has been growing at a healthy rate. The Indian auto-components industry is set to become the third largest in the world by 2025. It caters to the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) consisting of high-value precision instruments; low-valued products and also to the aftermarket category. The Indian Aerospace Industry is witnessing an unprecedented growth with the civil and defence aviation sector showcasing enormous potential and huge opportunities for collaboration and creation of joint ventures. This monthly edition of IPF takes us through these special sections via interviews and featured articles.
Industrial Products Finder (IPF), a pioneer industrial journal in India, was launched in 1972. It gives industrial manufacturers and exclusive dealers/importers of industrial products a forum to display their ware, in a medium that was to be made regularly available to the users of these products. IPF focuses on all industrial/engineering products and services, consultancies, repair and reconditioning services, industrial security and safety services, and of late, pollution control and environment protection services. Apart from products, there are also other regular features that complement the core activity – a capsule of important events and developments in the industrial sector, news on companies, projects, joint ventures and mergers, etc; a selection of articles written by experts in the field as well as academics; and information on all important trade fairs, conferences, seminars and training programmers.
