Singapore-based global robotics company, FJ Dynamics, has recently expanded its operations into India, tapping into the geospatial technology market. In an interview with Geospatial World, Deb Biswas, the representative of FJ Dynamics India, discusses the company’s entry into the Indian market and the growth prospects in Southeast Asia.
Biswas emphasizes that entering the Indian market was a natural choice for FJ Dynamics due to India’s status as a trillion-dollar economy and its rapid scientific progress. With the popularity of slam integrated LiDAR technology on the rise, FJ Dynamics recognizes the vast opportunities in the Indian market, which is projected to reach over 500 billion dollars. Furthermore, the Indian government’s push for geospatial data utilization, as outlined in the national gazette, has created a favorable environment for FJ Dynamics to democratize data and deliver high-quality solutions at a reasonable cost.
Discussing the trajectory of geospatial technologies in Southeast Asia, Biswas notes a significant upward trend. The increased participation of global companies and multinationals in events like Geospatial World signifies the growing importance of the industry. This region-wide expansion is a reflection of the industry’s progress and highlights the potential for further growth and collaboration in Southeast Asia.
As for ongoing projects and future endeavors, FJ Dynamics is actively involved in various infrastructure projects across India. These projects include the development of new infrastructure, such as bridges, dams, buildings, and roads, particularly the ambitious Bharatmala project, which aims to enhance road connectivity throughout the country. Additionally, FJ Dynamics recognizes the booming mining sector as another significant opportunity to provide valuable solutions.
With their expertise in geospatial technologies, FJ Dynamics is well-positioned to contribute to India’s infrastructure development and support industries through their innovative products and services. The company’s entry into the Indian market not only strengthens their global presence but also fosters technological advancements and collaborations in the geospatial industry.
