Bangalore, India–IndiaWood was the first pavilion of the year recently for the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and was set up as an “open plan” space to accommodate up to 15 companies. AHEC also recently reported that, though traditionally a difficult place for Americans to do business, India has made rapid advances in the manufacturing sector and wood processing industry over the last year. 2021 was recorded as a record year for exports of U.S. hardwoods to India. There has also been an increase in exports of U.S. hardwoods in value grades and species for re-export furniture. In conjunction with IndiaWood, AHEC also organized a tour of MAS Furniture, located in Mysore, India.
The 12th edition of IndiaWood featured country pavilions from Germany, the U.S., Canada, Turkey, Malaysia, Finland, Estonia, Taiwan and Gabon, amongst others. The five-day event offered a comprehensive range of innovative products and provided information on the latest technological developments. Spread over 65,000 square meters plus the area with five dedicated themed halls, the event was expected to attract a record number of visitors.
Visitors included furniture manufacturers, cabinet manufacturers, sawmill representatives, component manufacturers, traders, architects, builders and interior designers. They were given the opportunity at IndiaWood to browse the latest in technologies, materials and innovations.
