The 45th edition of the IPF Annual has selected MATE as the theme, representing some of the fastest growing segments of the economy. MATE stands for Manufacturing, Automation Transportation and Energy. These are the ‘happening’ sectors that are expected to grow at a rapid pace, and in the process generate demand for Capital Equipment as well as MRO products and consumables during 2017. With the ‘Make in India’ initiative now gathering steam as well as gaining momentum, it is time to expect a significant boost for the manufacturing sector during 2017.
This edition also carries a large number of article, interviews and product profiles from across all industry segments, making it a useful reference work for the year in a single edition.
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.
