“The reality is that no good design can actually be realized without the use of functional hardware; after all what is a piece of furniture without fittings – mere planks of wood!” – Juergen Wolf, Managing Director, Häfele India Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, exhibitor at Index
Index Fairs is a serious business platform for players in the hardware industry to showcase their products. It is the only focused hardware exhibition in the country, with participation from all major national and international hardware and furniture fitting brands. Buyers will find exhibitors of products like locks, hinges, slides, channels and screws, as well as kitchen, furniture, architectural, door and bathroom hardware.
Some of the renowned brands who have been present at the hardware show include Ebco, Hafele, Hettich, Labacha, Archis, Bose, Jolly, Innotec, Tunes, Valencia, Indaux, etc.
The hardware industry in India is estimated to reach USD 60-75 Billion by 2020. Geoffrey Nagpal, Managing Director, Ebco Pvt. Ltd., says “The growth of the hardware industry is driven by India’s burgeoning middle class that aspires to live and work better.” India has one of the largest consumer bases in the world, and the improvement in living standards is opening the doors of opportunity to the hardware industry where quality, look and design is starting to matter more than price.
