The sector is highly unorganized & only about 15% is in the organized sector. The sector offers tremendous growth opportunities for existing woodworking industries & emerging entrepreneurs alike.
Challenges in getting skilled workers in the woodworking sector
One of the critical challenges of the Indian Furniture & woodworking Industry is the limited pool of talented manpower, lack of knowledge of processes and technologies required to sustainably produce standardised products for the mass market is a factor that hampers the tremendous growth potential of the industry.
INDIAWOOD as a catalyst
By bringing the world’s best technologies, equipment and services under one roof, INDIAWOOD has acted as a catalyst in the growth of the industry and helped the community become competitive & experience cutting edge technologies. Since its inception in 2002, INDIAWOOD has played a vital role in bridging the knowledge gap in technology & production processes.
INDIAWOOD has also played a vital role in influencing setting up of training facilities in Bangalore at Institute of Wood Science and Technology (IWST) where latest machines were sponsored by few European machine manufacturers.
Apart from this, INDIAWOOD has also influenced Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) to set up facility centers across India in cities like Jodhpur, Jaipur, Moradabad, Saharanpur etc by investing in skill development, infrastructure and machineries required for woodworking and furniture making. Such common facilities train a lot of enthusiasts on a continuous basis which imparts skill development in the field of woodworking.
Prime Minister’s Initiative
We are encouraged by the Prime Minister’s initiative in investing in skill development and educating the young work force available in India and foresee many opportunities that could line up for the skilled workers in this sector.
With the identical objectives of promoting skill development, we take this opportunity to invite one and all to visit Indiawood 2016.
