Dahej Industrial Expo 2023 Mostly Dealer-Centric
The third edition of the Dahej Expo was mostly dealer-centric. Most of the OEMs were represented by their dealers and distributors. This trend was mostly visible in the electrical products segment like lighting, switchgear, wires and cables, and measuring instruments. Although the heavy equipment like motors, pumps, valves and automation panels were directly represented by the companies. This also indicates that the industry demand in Dahej area is very time-bound with shorter delivery periods and ready stocks. Although OEMs with ready stocks nearby also may have a bright chance of getting business.
Dahej already a Hotspot for Industries in Gujarat
Sayakha also Being Developed as Major Chemical Industry Hub

Industrial sectors concentrated in Dahej include chemicals & petrochemicals, fertilizers, textiles, drugs & pharmaceuticals, ports & shipbuilding, dyes & dye intermediates.
