There are limitless opportunities in every industry, and where there's an open mind there will always be a frontier! This dictum got resonance for 10th year in a row at 10th Zak International Trade Fair Expo, held from December 14- 16, 2012 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Zak International Trade Fair, one of the vital interaction platforms for the Glass Technology, accompanied by Zak Doors and Windows Expo (9th edition of the annual event) and Aluminium Extrusions Expo (4th edition of the annual event) provided all that a triple expo has to offer. The rising competition coupled with an unending endeavour to tap the Indian market potential was more than apparent among various participants from around the world in a three-day event. Expecting a surge in domestic demand, the Indian Glass Industry, estimated at Rs.18,000 crore, witnessed a plethora of domestic manufacturers ramping up their capacities and infusing new technologies to cash in on the growing investment of over Rs.7,000 crore for the next two-three years.

Meanwhile, it saw the participation of 315 exhibitors representing around 450 brands from across 32 countries, presenting their products, technologies and solutions including machinery, systems and equipment in Glass Production Technology, Glass Processing and Finishing, Glass Products and Applications, Silicone sealant and Adhesive, Doors & Windows Façades, Technologies, Auxiliary Products, Fittings, and Tools segment. Besides, Aluminium Surface Finish, Aluminium Thermal Break and uPVC Profiles provided an ideal platform and unique opportunity for the participants to learn about their respective technologies through industry discussion. The number of trade visitors this year, has gone up to 17,166, registering a growth of 9%, over the previous New Delhi edition 2010.

Over the years with rising popularity, Glass has become an increasingly popular building material the world over. With architectural glass playing a major role in the Glass industry, new trends and advantages of embracing architectural glass as a construction material of technology driven through scientific research and custom made solutions got added momentum in the expo. With over nine successful editions, the expo has emerged as the single largest venue in India and South Asia, acting as a bridge between exhibitors and visitors to display and generate awareness about the radical changes in glass technology. The expo has evolved into an annual destination for exhibitors and thousands of visitors from the glass and glazing industry to interact, to find opportunities to invest in and boost their presence in the category.

Silicone Sealants, without which the Glass Industry is now unperceivable, were again a major draw at the event. Leading players such as 3M, Dow Corning, McCoy, and Alstone exhibited their products coupled with technicalities and innovative applications. At the same time, the fair proved to be an enlightening for the visitors, who got an opportunity to know about some of the green aspects of silicone with its future possibilities and applications both internally and externally on a structure to achieve sustainability for future construction projects.

Moving on, the other noticeable feature of the show was the convergence of glass machinery manufacturers and marketers. The European brands such as Akfix, Bentler, Dynamiki, Blokkiln, and Hegla are eying the Indian market as a potentially rewarding market and complementing this perspective with concerted efforts to promote their machineries. In the meantime, the Chinese brands viz Champion Union, China Float Glass and Tangban International, got impressive response. They came equipped with the latest technologies and offered their products at competitive prices.

Kaanch Ki Paathshala

Interestingly, the class for glass workshop called Kaanch Ki Paathshala stole the three-day expo with its debut, highlighting the various properties of glass and its installation techniques. The debut edition of the workshop was a stupendous success and earned rave reviews from one and all. Organized by the joint initiative of Federation of Safety Glass (FOSG) & Zak, the workshop was a 3 day affair with live demonstration of key aspect of installing and application of the glass the right way which was explained by trained professionals and stalwarts of the industry.

Almost 815 participants from all across India were able to learn how to enhance their skills, new techniques and methodologies and more importantly improve their productivity and learn how to do more with less. It also held a question-answer session, where special gifts were presented to participants who answered correctly to the questions posed by the trainers. This year's "Kaanch Ki Paathshala" was a remarkable event to give an overview of glass in layman's language.

Rajiv Aggarwal
Commenting on this, Mr. Rajiv Aggarwal, Vice President, Ozone Overseas Pvt. Ltd. says, "Kaanch ki Paathshala was an excellent initiative by FOSG and Ozone is proud to be given an opportunity to become a partner to it. Our Company's philosophy has always been to share information and update our customers and users. Kaanch ki Paathshala gave us the perfect platform to do so – not only were we able to demonstrate the display procedure for various glass installations but also cite certain small points which are normally missed by the installers and fabricators during installation. If taken caution of these things, there can be a perfect and safe installation of hardware and glass."

ZAK 2012 was supported by AFFP, CCPS, GSI, and FOSG, which are the country's most significant associations in this industry. The show attracted a multitude of visitors that included architects, interior designers, builders, developers, dealers, distributors, contractors, fabricators, and consultants. Talking of ZAK Doors & Windows Expo 2012, uPVC frames and profiles and the manufacturing machinery for the same turned out to be major crowd pullers during the exhibition. Visitors got a touch and felt experience of products in a gamut of categories which included Doors, Auxiliary Products, Accessories and Hardware, Raw Materials, Windows and Machinery, and its future prospects. Mr. Onkar S. Ahluwalia, Managing Director, Dimex expressed, "Life is changing for good with advent of new eco- friendly technology as more customers are embracing uPVC for its growing quality. It has become a lifestyle product with growing resilience. This is promising as far as future of the industry is concerned."

On the other hand, ZAK Aluminium Extrusions Expo, pitched for aluminium as the ideal substitute to conventional construction materials. Since its first edition in 2009, it has now grown to around 65 exhibiting brands from 15 different countries with a variety of display profile such as aluminum extrusions, dies, surface finishing technology, presses, thermal break solutions, software, and material handling solutions. Companies from India and abroad appeared quite optimistic about the growing demand for the ‘green' metal in the country. And since the expo drew a large number of trade visitors from the construction industry, exhibitors can expect rich dividends in the coming months. For instance, companies like Agarvanshi Aluminium, Jindal Aluminium Ltd, KMC Aluminium, Global Aluminium and Emmebi found many visitors in architects and consultants, sharing their views about aluminium's longevity and eco-friendliness.

Crucially, the Zak Aluminium Thermal break symposium coupled with thermal breaking technology educated trade visitors that how to minimize the rising energy bills. The exhibition was strengthened by the 2nd International symposium on Aluminium Surface Finish presented by Qualicoat. It also provided a knowledge platform on the best global practices in coating on aluminium extruded profiles. The key attractions included introduction of quality labels Qualicoat, Qualanod and Qualideco, in depth interactive presentations on pre-surface treatment systems, coating technologies and engaging group discussion with panel representation from leading architects, developers, installers, coaters, and suppliers. The event featured keynotes by several international speakers sharing their views from the global perspective and to implement the same in India.

All in all, Zak International Trade Fair 2012 gave a great chance to consolidate awareness, meet, bargain, and win free gifts. A range of cutting-edge concepts and products displayed during exhibition, and triple expos on Glass, Aluminium Extrusions and Fenestration, provided required synergies to ensure interaction with a broader set of audience from a wide cross-section of industries and countries. It offered something for everyone; from visitors to exhibitors, all had a treat in the form of three simultaneous exhibitions, demonstrating their promising potential growth respectively for latent future in India.

"We enjoyed participating in the event and found this edition much superior to the one in Mumbai. This event was quite useful to us and we signed up orders also during the exhibition. Good luck once again," says RG Krishnan, Head – Operations Saint-Gobain Seva Engineering India Ltd.
