Excon 2021 is one of the benchmarks of the relaunch in India, according to the organizers. As you may be aware, Covid struck the Indian subcontinent later, but in a very severe manner. According to Reuters, on June 20 “The total number of cases of COVID-19 in India have risen to 29.9 million and so far 386,713 people have died.”
Hope will gather visitors to Excon 2021
Who are the organizers? CII is the Confederation of Indian Industry, with over 9000 members from the private as well as public sectors, including SMEs and MNCs, and an indirect membership of over 300,000 enterprises from 294 national and regional sectoral industry bodies.
According to the official statements “it’s the largest construction equipment in South Asia.

A few exhibitors’ names
As a result, the event resembles what we’ve seen at Bauma Munich, Conexpo, and Bauma Shanghai. Among the names of the 2019 edition’s exhibitors, at least among those most familiar to POWERTRAIN readers, are Bonfiglioli, Casappa, Caterpillar, Deutz, Donaldson, JCB (a leader in the space), Kohler, Parker Hannifin and Walvoil.
