Magazine Description

In this issue

A new year has dawned. As automakers in India gear up to meet BS VI emission norms, global suppliers like Mahle view them as a huge opportunity. Find out how the company plans to assist vehicle OEMs in their quest for greener motoring. Meanwhile, Roots Industries of Coimbatore is exploring a two-pronged growth strategy of diversification and consolidation. We reveal the company’s game-plan to de-risk itself from potentially saturated businesses and chart a new growth path. In the ‘Interview of the Fortnight’, we learn about how Rattan Kapur, president of ACMA, plans to enable Tier 2 and Tier 3 vendors to upgrade their skills and technologies, why Indian industry needs to develop its own IP and build scale, and how engaging with global institutes can sharpen the focus on R&D in the domestic auto industry. In another exclusive interaction, Patrick Koller, CEO of the Faurecia Group, reveals how India is set to play a prominent role in extending the Group’s technological capabilities. Among the many global trends is the demand for turbocharged vehicles. A recent study by Honeywell Transportation Systems has it that with demand rising in the USA and the high-growth markets of China and India, worldwide market for turbocharged vehicles will grow to over 232 million turbocharged passenger cars and CVs between 2017 and 2021. Staying safe on the road, particularly if you are riding on two wheels, is critical. Continental has developed a new range of two-wheeler technologies designed to make safer riding a reality. We sample them at the company’s Asahi test centre in Japan. To set the tone for 2017, we’ve also got a human interest story. Many entrepreneurs move to the USA to live the American dream. We give you the story of an American who has made it big . . . in China. All this, plus exciting industry news, views and analysis.
