Hyatt Regency Delhi,
On January 18 – Autocar Professional will host the second edition of its annual Two-Wheeler Conclave at the Hyatt Regency in New Delhi. The conclave, on the overall theme of ‘Sustainable Growth in a New Era’, covers three key sessions – ‘Opportunities and Challenges on the Horizon’, ‘Riding the Electric Mobility Wave’ and ‘Emerging Market Trends and Predicting the Future’. These three sessions of the Two-Wheeler Conclave cover almost every aspect of the two-wheeler industry.
The Conclave, a good knowledge and networking forum, started off in 2016. With representation from the government, professionals representing OEMs, component manufacturers, research agencies and industry bodies, the second edition of the conclave promises to be a highly interesting event. There will be a galaxy of top-notch speakers, each an expert in the field, discussing and debating key two-wheeler industry issues, present and future challenges as well as the many opportunities that are coming up.
The automotive industry is witnessing a very dynamic period, which can be broadly segregated into changes that are driven by the new regulatory requirements and the fast-evolving customer preferences. These would include BS VI emission norms, new ABS / CBS safety mandates and the maturing local market.
Electric mobility, where two-wheelers are taking the lead, is a major emerging trend. The Indian EV market is at an inflection point now. OEMs and suppliers who get prepared now are the ones who will reap the benefits later. It's here that the government is going to play a key role. Given the sheer scale of the Indian two-wheeler market (FY2017: 17.5 million units), electrifying two-wheelers would have a big impact on cleaning the environment.
Simultaneously, the marketplace is also entering a new era. Young customers, some with tastes that are very radical, are entering the riding age. They speak a totally different language in terms of technology, design or even mobility. The once motorcycle-dominated industry continues to get scooterised as families and youngsters opt for easy-to-ride scooters, some trendy, and some with multi-utility features and low maintenance costs. And in the motorcycle segment, a new breed of midsize motorcycles is gaining ground. Could there be a big change in the contours of the two-wheeler market? Also, conventional retail channels are undergoing changes, while some alternate channels are taking shape in a digital world.
