Indian Demolition Association Annual Meeting 2023 and Demtech Tradeshow in Bengaluru

IDA and Demtech 2023, India’s 2nd international demolition, recycling, and remediation conference is almost here. And there’s still time to be a part of it.

In 2019, the Indian Demolition Association (IDA), spearheaded by Mohan Ramanathan, organized the country’s first-ever demolition, recycling, and remediation conference in tandem with the group’s formation. Demtech India 2019 was backed by some major industry players, including Volvo India as headline sponsor, and many of the industry’s leading manufacturers sponsoring and exhibiting at the event.

Such massive sponsor support and a high turnout of Indian participants, backed by attendees from 17 different countries, was the perfect potpourri for a path breaking and resounding success. Considering the size and scope of the Indian economy and its booming construction industry, the intent was to conduct a bi-annual conference.


Second edition 28-29 September, 2023

As we all know, Covid19 put the brakes on those grand plans. Now with Covid19 in retreat, the industry is roaring to move ahead. Against this background, IDA is keeping pace with this expected surge, setting the stage for the long-awaited second edition of Demtech India.

We’re pleased to announce that Volvo India will be the headline sponsor for Demtech 23, with Epiroc, Hilti, Brokk, Aquajet Systems, and Sennebogen are supporting as associate sponsors. Husqvarna, Edifice, Pentruder, Shearcore, Kemroc, Kobelco, and Tyrolit are affiliate sponsors.

Demtech India 2023 presents promising business networking opportunities for industry aficionados who desire to get a foothold into the Indian market. Considering the Indian economy is on an upward trajectory and backed by key government policies that are encouraging and sustainable, the time is ripe to take action.

According to a recent report by the government’s National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, the construction industry market in India the construction industry in India is expected to reach more than US$1.4 trillion by 2025 with the urban population set to contribute 75% of the national growth domestic product. The industry also encompasses 250 sub-sectors, many of which are linked to each other.

In a March 2022 article in PDi magazine, PDa’s sister publication, Ramanathan said the Indian demolition industry has a very bright future.

“There are tons of infrastructural projects in the loop thanks to the governmental spending on infrastructure in the country,” he said. “There are also a number of modernization projects on production plants that also will generate a lot of jobs.”

Yet despite this demand, India’s recycling and remediation is not sufficiently geared to handle the burgeoning market in a professional manner. According to Ramanathan, there are around 10 large demolition contractors, approximately 200 medium to large contractors, and approximately 500 or so smaller companies spread across the country. This creates a promising path for new players to make inroads into the market, while those already there can grab a bigger share.

Demtech India 2023 provides the perfect platform to meet, network, and take advantage of these opportunities. For more details on registration, sponsorship, and the conference agenda, visit
