Indian Ceramics with record exhibitor registrations
Taking place parallel to the Indian Ceramics 2010 is the IBaRT – Indian Brick and Roof Tile Exhibition. Companies such as Sacmi, Keller HCW, Händle, Bedeschi, Imerys and many more have already registered as exhibitors.
Key words for the Indian brick and tile sector are more energy-efficient kilns and the use of residual materials in the clay body. India, the second largest brick producer after China, manufactures approx. 150 billion bricks per year, whereby there are very many small-scale family-owned production units. The country is believed to have over 100 000 brick kilns of varying sizes. A drive for greater mechanization in brick and tile production is seen as inevitable.
