Automobile industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India. In order to survive and monetize their innovations, some automobile manufactures like Tata Motors, Hyundai, Maruti, Ford and General Motors have their own patent portfolios to keep themselves potent among the competitors.
India is transforming into a global R&D hub for the automotive and auto components sectors as most auto giants are setting-up R&D centers in the Country. The country offers several key advantages to global auto majors: lower R&D costs, availability of skilled manpower, and a potentially large domestic market that justifies the investment. Having established itself as a small car hub, India is now becoming a formidable choice for performing R&D activities. The focus on R&D in Auto ancillary units has further scope for expansion in the country over the next decade.
Patenting activity in India has grown significantly in recent years. The administrative measures by the government have helped strengthening the country’s IP infrastructure. IP awareness is growing, which is evident from the increased number of patent filings and IP litigations. It is obvious that Indian corporates need to formulate their patenting strategy carefully to stay competitive. This will entail creating more innovations, protecting these innovations with the relevant form of IPs, respecting others’ IPs and extracting value from own IPs through licensing, commercialisation and enforcement.
In a bid to bring awareness on the issues of Patents, Design & Trademark in the country,  commercializing it and to suggest a viable road-map for ensuring India rightful place as world’s favorite destination for Research & Development, ASSOCHAM with support of Controller General of Patents ,Designs and Trademarks (Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, GOI) is hosting this one day Seminar ” on 30th July , 2013 in Pithampur for Auto clusters in the State of M.P.
