MET 2020
Industry Overview

World is entering into a distinctly new age of Advanced Materials with the major research areas in material science, engineering and technology growing around composites, nano-science, solar cells, fuel cells, polymerisation etc.
 
Over the years, materials have moved from only traditional materials (METALS) to a wide range that encompasses COMPOSITES, CERAMICS, ENGINEERED PLASTICS, SPECIALITY CHEMICALS, NANO-MATERIALS, ELECTRONICS, BIO-MATERIALS etc.
 
Technological advancements in sectors like DEFENCE, RAILWAYS, AEROSPACE, ENERGY, ROADS & HIGHWAYS, etc. have been possible because of innovation in Materials with better properties to perform in extreme conditions.
 
Metallurgy and materials sciences have had a long tradition in India. According to a recent report by Thomson Reuters, India occupies the 6th position in research output in Material Sciences and is one of the leading countries for these studies in the APAC region.
 
The engineering sector in India is of strategic importance to the economy owing to its intense integration with other industry segments. The sector also attracts immense interest from foreign players as it enjoys a comparative advantage in terms of manufacturing costs, technology and innovation, as also the sector has been de-licensed and enjoys 100 per cent FDI.
 
The above, coupled with favourable regulatory policies and growth in the manufacturing sector has enabled several foreign players to invest in India.
 
India’s engineering R&D market is expected to increase from USD 28 Bn in the year 2018 to USD 42 Bn by the year 2022
