New National Committee on Aerospace to tackle key issues in the sector

Radhika Yelkur - 22-août-2014 07:37:09

The Confederation of Indian Industry’s National Committee on Aerospace (CIINCA) was launched earlier this month under the chairmanship of Dr R K Tyagi, the chairman of HAL. The newly constituted Committee will tackle key issues in the aeronautical sector such as import substitution, skill development, taxation, policy framework for the MRO sector and integration of the Indian supply chain with global OEMs. The CIINCA hopes to give a new fillip to the aerospace manufacturing sector by engaging with all stakeholders from the government, PSUs, private and multi-national organisations and research laboratories, among others.   India’s aerospace majors are among CIINCA’s members - RIL, BEL, Mahindra Aerospace, Walchandnagar Industries Limited, L&T, TATA Sons, Maini Precision Products, Godrej & Boyce and Bharat Forge Limited - as are some French and European companies such Mach Aero Components, Airbus Group, Airbus Helicopters and Safran, and major international players such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, Honeywell, SAAB, Rosoboronservice (India) Ltd and Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd.

JetKonnect and JetLite to merge into single full service brand

Anindita BANERJEE - 22-août-2014 06:25:07

As part of its bid to return to profitability, Jet Airways has decided to merge its low cost business – JetKonnect and JetLite – with its full service brand. Jet will need to align its fares with economy class airlines to stay competitive in a market where 80% of travelers prefer LCCs (low cost carriers). The challenges facing the airline include lounge costs at airports, the costs of meals and optimizing the business and economy seats on its aircraft for greater cost efficiency. Jet’s international business is already profitable, and the airline has reinforced this by instituting code share agreements with Etihad and Air France. However, it will still need to face competition from AirAsia India, an LCC, and Vistara, the Tata-SIA airline which will operate in the full service space. The airline’s taken a turn for the better, since Etihad, the Abu Dhabi-based airline, bought a 24% stake in the company. The net losses are down to INR 258 crore for Q1 of 2014-15, as compared to INR 348.5 crore for the same quarter in the last financial year. Total revenue for the same period has increased by 12.8% to INR 5040 crores.

The commencement of operations is subject to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA) approval.

French cybersecurity firms increasingly successful in fast-growing market

Thibaut Barde - 08-août-2014 07:40:36

In 2013, there was a 12% year-on-year rise in cybersecurity attacks, with nearly 60% of them causing either brand damage or direct revenue loss to businesses. This, coupled with highly publicized commercial and government breaches of IT security, has increased the demand for cybersecurity services. French companies are strongly placed in this growing market and their advanced solutions are in demand. The 12% year-on-year increase in cybersecurity attacks that affected businesses in 2013 (Source: IBM 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index), regrettable as it may be, translates into the fact that the IT-security sector is experiencing sustained growth in this segment of the market. High-profile cases, such as the cyber-attacks on US retail chain Target, have raised awareness among business executives. While US-based and British companies dominate current business in this sector, client entities are looking for alternatives in order to alleviate their worries of government intrusion. In this respect, French specialist companies are a strong contender in the eyes of many professionals and executives working for SMEs and start-ups, but also at established, larger groups: these clients are leveraging the French know-how stemming from top R&D centres and universities.  

Vanilla flavour PROVANIL range to be produced in India

Thomas Ilhe - 04-août-2014 07:07:01

PROVA , worldwide leader in conceiving and manufacturing extracts and flavours of vanilla, cocoa, coffee and other Gourmet notes for the food industry, will launch the production of its concept of vanilla flavouring PROVANIL specially tailored for the Indian market. The synthetic vanilla flavouring PROVANIL has been commercialised worldwide for more than 25 years, having given evidence of its performance and competitiveness. PROVANIL is a good balance between natural and artificial, and provides a complete alternative to either synthetic or natural vanilla flavouring systems, offering a technical and cost efficient substitute for use in the chocolate, bakery and biscuit dough, cereals and premixes. Its success relies on its ability to enhance the taste of finished foodstuff while providing heat resistance and fat solubility. PROVANIL is combining flavouring strength and sweetness.  PROVA’s choice to produce this new version of PROVANIL in India has resulted from two main reasons: a thorough market analysis that showed there was a booming market for this concept of a cost-effective and easy to use vanilla flavouring in India and a decision to increase its competiveness while minimizing customs fees, and logistics and administrative costs.   Considered one of the most prestigious spices worldwide, vanilla has become a prime flavour in many countries thanks to its unique taste and its multiple culinary applications. In India, the status of vanilla flavour is moving from a commodity to a premium flavouring system. Demand is growing from consumers who want to get the authentic vanilla taste in the finished products they are consuming. Thus, while the market share captured is expanding, it has prompted the food industry to enhance the vanilla flavour altogether, whether synthetic or natural.   Benefiting from this context, PROVA has been present in India for one year and a half through its subsidiary in Bangalore already in charge of commercial and logistic activities. This choice of location reflects also the wish of the company to be closer to the place of production of a rare variety of vanilla in the world. PROVA has been indeed a significant buyer of Kerala and Karnataka vanilla and continues to purchase vanilla from these states, when pods are available.     About PROVA: Worldwide leader in conceiving and manufacturing extracts and flavours of vanilla, cocoa, coffee and other Gourmet notes for the food industry, PROVA is present in more than 40 countries across five continents. Thanks to the meticulous and respectful selection of raw materials and innovative extraction methods, the company always delivers high quality flavours specifically tailored to meet consumption trends and local taste preferences of each country. PROVA was created in 1946 and remains an independent family-owned business. Its headquarters are located in Montreuil, near Paris in France.   PROVA will attend the Food Ingredients India exhibition (FI India)   in Mumbai from 29 th September to 1 st October and will showcase its PROVANIL range as well as other innovative products on B-26 stand.
