The yearly meet is the place where the commercial vehicle industry comes together with its collective wisdom to discuss technological disruptors and heightened customer expectations, working together as an entity, to grow the overall industry pie.
The Commercial Vehicle Forum (CVF), after being held in Chennai last year, has travelled to Pune and will be held on 18th May 2017 at The Westin Pune. In the year 2016, India overtook China as the fastest growing major economy, expanding by 7.9 per cent and cemented its position as one of the sole bright spots in the otherwise moribund world economy. It was a
roller-coaster ride for the Indian CV industry.
Despite the TIV of the entire CV industry being close to a million trucks and buses, India is still way behind the actual requirements in terms of performance and technology. This indicates that the market has plenty of opportunities for growth and change in the coming years. New generation platforms and models which are set to script the future will be introduced by all the OEMs.
Within the environment of growth and challenges at the Commercial Vehicle Forum (CVF) industry on 18th May 2017 at Westin Pune, CVF shall be a great opportunity to build a period of CV industry renaissance. CVF is the place where CV industry comes together with its collective wisdom to discuss technological disruptors and customer expectations, working together as an entity, to grow the overall industry pie.
