Changing Scenario in Lighting Manufacturing

June 16, 2010 5:39 am

Lighting Industry in India is still in its infancy. Inadequate infrastructural facilities together with the lack of technological advancements are the major hurdles for development of this sector. Anil Valia, one of the Country’s eminent lighting Designer and Educator shares his views on this sector. He has also compared the current status between the lighting industry of China and India.
 
I am in this field since last 35 years and I had started my career in design & development of Lighting Fittings way back in 1971. From that day onwards the Lighting Fitting manufacturing activities are under Small Scale Industries (SSI) when the limit for capital investment was Rs.1 Million which is Rs.30 Million today. Today most of these SSI are Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and are suppliers to large marketing companies in their brands. There are very few SSI brands manufacturing the lighting equipment. For this SSI/OEM they have several limitations like:
•      SSI is generally one man show to look after several activities including Finance
•      Non Availability of Capital for investment in dies and tools
•      Non availability of skilled personnel for design & development and if available are non affordable
•      Lack of Quality Control laboratory
•      Non availability of Photometric testing
•      At National level also inadequate facilities for Photometric testing
•      Lack of R&D Activities
•      Poor quality of dies and tools
•      Old and Poor quality of manufacturing methods/process  & machinery
•      Poor implementation of Standards and quality control
•      Most of them are craftsmen and not educated
