In conversation with Mr. Sandeep Gurwara, Managing Director: Services International
Q. Please tell us about the motivation behind Launching Fire India?
Fires are the leading cause of major injuries and deaths in India and around the world. This motivated us to launch a platform which supports and helps reduce this risk and also to help prevent such incidents. We wanted to empower the market so that we are at a better place to prevent such disasters.
The total world market for fire protection business has shown an upwards trend, but the rate varies in different segments and countries. Fire India exhibition and conference is a platform that highlights a state of fire prevention and the measures to reach out promptly to both urban and remote areas
Fire India provides a great platform to conduct business, meet potential buyers and interact with other exhibitors.
The event with extravagant display of the latest innovation inspired security Technology is a must attend.
Q. How do you see the growth of fire industry in India?
In recent times India has witnessed a substantial increase in terms of awareness about fire safety and security.
According to a recent study the fire safety industry in India is expected to cross US dollars 4.9 billion by the year 2019 as economy sees growth, industries are updating their technologies to meet the growing demand of the consumers.
The “make in India” initiative has provided a platform for local as well as international companies to launch new technologies and set up manufacturing units in India.
Overall I see a bright future for the fire and safety industry in India.
