Ontario Aerospace Export Business Mission to Aero India
February 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
February 3- February 7, 2021
Aero India, a biennial event organized by the Indian Ministry of Defense, is the largest airshow in Asia. The event seeks to provide a platform for industry, regulators and policy makers to debate major issues affecting the growth of these sectors. The 2019 edition featured 750 global and Indian exhibitors, more than 150,000 business visitors and 300,000 general visitors, and ministerial/defence heads and delegations from 109 countries.
The Government of Ontario invites you to join an aerospace export business mission to Aero India in Bangalore. Ontario companies involved in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) will receive targeted assistance from the Ontario government.
The mission package will include:
- B2B meetings in Bangalore and New Delhi;
- Visits to leading aerospace and defence manufacturers, integrators and other partners;
- Market intelligence and briefings on the aerospace and defence industries in India;
- Introduction to decision-makers in Indian aerospace and defence firms;
- Participation in potential networking events at Aero India; and
- Exhibitor space in the Ontario booth.
India has become the third-largest domestic aviation market in the world and is expected to overtake the UK to become the third-largest air passenger market by 2024. Due to an underdeveloped defence manufacturing sector and the desire to modernize operations, India is one of the largest importers of defence equipment, at approximately 60 percent. The Indian government has become increasingly keen to develop a domestic ‘Make in India’ strategy to manufacture at home; one aspect of the mandate in the aerospace industry is for India to become a regional hub for MRO of civil and defence aircraft. The repair of aircraft components, airframes and engines in India is worth about U.S.$8 billion and will increase to U.S.$20 billion in three years.
