Clean India Show
Maturing Market, Maximum Technology

It is tough to summarise the paradigm shifts that are taking place in the cleaning industry. One definitely needs to be part of the Clean India shows, which provides an open window on the changing trends, demands, product preferences, new markets, technology development and much more in the industry. A few landmark changes experienced during the 17th edition of Clean India Show held at the Bombay Exhibition Center from February 13 to 15 reveals where the industry is headed. A report:

Industry growth

Numbers don’t lie. In the last 20 years, Charnock Equipments has expanded from a single office to 16 offices across the country. But in 2020 alone, it is set to open in six new locations. In less than five years, IPC India has spread to 15 branches nationwide. Vivek Mata, MD-Charnock Equipments said: “The government finally wants cleaning and hygiene levels to be standardised, leading to the growth of the professional cleaning industry.” Agreed Rajesh Mahajan of Pudumjee Hygiene: “Sectors like food processing now have certain mandatory hygiene guidelines to follow. They are in need of products which fulfil certain certifications, and the cleaning equipment industry is finally getting its due.”

But this increased demand is not haphazard; customers are knowledgeable about what they want. Venu Madhavan, GM-Industry Services, Karcher India, said: “We are less into selling products and more into selling applications. When a customer has a particular cleaning problem, companies now deliver solutions tailored to them. This requires a sense of ownership from the manufacturer, to prescribe the right application for the right problem.”

Massive mechanisation

Considering India’s rapid growth of infrastructure, it will come as no surprise that mechanised cleaning is very much in vogue; mammoth machines that can service vast areas were on display at many stalls across the Expo. Lasgin Saydo, Aiport Sales Manager, Boschung Group, said: “Road-sweeping equipment has generated the most enquiries. We are currently selling the diesel-powered version, but we also have a fully electrical version available, that is already in use in Europe. Its battery lasts for 8-10 hours — the length of an entire shift — without having to be charged.” Boschung was also banking on machines designed to suction up glycol left by aircraft on airport tarmacs; this dangerous chemical needs to be swiftly removed before it comes into contact with humans. As more and more Indians can afford to take to the skies, the scope of airport cleaning is set to grow in leaps and bounds.
