As you know, RA’pro is partner of Augmented Reality Summit India 2013 in Mumbai, because we are extremely interested by the Indian AR market. To better known AR use possibilities in India, we asked the ARSI2103 conference producer, Mr.Roshan Chourasia, to share his view of this market.
Could you briefly introduce yourself and your organisation?
Mr.Roshan Chourasia MBA, Conference Producer at Yoogma Business Services, LLP. (also known as YBS Global). My interests lies in Digital Media.
We are majorly into research & consulting. As part of our deliverables to the industry, we conduct lot of B2B Events & Forums. We do an extensive research about various industry verticals in India & work very closely with the senior professionals from the Corporates who are responsible for the operations, new project / services implementation & execution in their particular domains & try to analyze what are the key issues they are facing in their day to day work. Based on their feedback, we organize Conferences through which we assure them to bring the best possible solution providers & consultants on board who can help them in resolving these issues that have been raised.
Are there AR companies present in India ?
Yes there only a few AR Companies in India. But looking at the demand, there is lot of opportunity for international AR companies to expand their wings in India.
In your minds, what are the AR market possibilities in India ?
We do events on a particular subject only if there is inclination of the Indian market towards it. Earlier when I had done research on Augmented Reality, people were not sure about implementing it in their businesses. Back then, they had started understanding the importance of Augmented Reality, but they were not ready to take steps in that direction. This time when I did research, I found that they had better approach towards this subject. They are finally ready to implement Augmented Reality as part of their business strategy and are keen to explore the options available in the market. Many Indian companies have already implemented AR as a part of marketing, naming a few Mahindra & Mahindra, Godrej Interio, Shopper’s Stop, Swarovski India, Parle Agro, McDonalds India etc. Also AR was used in promotion of Bollywood movies like “Ferrari Ki Sawari” at movie theater.
Our aim is make the corporate understand that AR is not just a “Marketing Gimmick” it can be used to various other operational purposes. For Eg – Engineering, Medical etc.
