    LIGNA Hannover, scheduled to be held from May 11-15, 2015 in Germany, is the world’s leading trade fair for woodworking equipment and machinery and wood products. With government’s renewed focus on urbanization, infrastructure ramp up and skilling, LIGNA Hannover 2015 presents a unique opportunity for Indian companies to witness the latest state-of-the-art in technology and cutting-edge innovations across the entire forest and wood value chain.
    The Indian customer is getting more and more quality and style conscious and is involved at each step of the chain – right from the initial design to the final delivery. With competition getting tougher, LIGNA Hannover 2015 offers the right platform for Indian companies to know about the latest trends and technology driving this industry. This five-day event features a broad range of exhibits and offers a unique opportunity to look forward to tremendous array of products and services from around the world and compare all of the different products on the market.
    According to Mr. Mehul Shah, Managing Director, Hannover Milano Fairs India (P) Ltd, “The fair offers visitors a superb opportunity to find out more about the status of technology in this dynamic industry and to directly establish contacts with potential partners. This show will attract specialized and focused audiences who will have the opportunity to meet with industry professionals and key market regulators.”
    The Indian furniture market is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 25% through fiscal 2015-19, along with the (organised and unorganised) woodworking industry. The country’s growing economy, government’s modernization plans, rising disposable income, expanding middle class and growing number of urban households are some of the growth drivers of the woodworking sector. In addition, the anticipated rise in tourism, realty and hospitality sectors is also expected to spur the wood and furniture demand in the country.
    Some of the key highlights of the LIGNA 2015 are:
    . Visitors will get to see exciting new machines that can handle not just wood, but plastics, composite panels, composites, insulation and construction materials as well. These additional, non-wood applications are advantageous in a range of areas, particularly caravan and boat building, vehicle customization, ship and aircraft interior finishing, and plastics processing and fabrication.
    · Participants can attend the Wood Industry Summit which will present the latest wood industry technologies and also provide a forum for leaders of industry, science and government to tap fast-growing markets.
    · Witness the “Fibers in Process” group pavilion that will provide a wood industry perspective on the various processes and technologies used in the pulp and paper industry.
    The previous LIGNA show attracted 90,000 visitors from more than 90 countries. Over the last few years, LIGNA has been recognised as the leading trade fair for the forestry and wood industries, providing innovative sustainable technology and solutions that have the collective support of business, research and government associations.
