The company sees India’s ambitious goal to be NetZero by 2070, opening several green business opportunities in the country.

As a part of their 2025 growth strategy, Danfoss India plans to expand its geographic footprint in India from current 56 cities to 80+ cities, improve localisation of all products from an average of 50% to 80-90%, and explore new hotspots where energy efficiency plays a significant role. The company also has plans of introducing new innovative products focused on energy, food, health care, infrastructure, and mobility sectors.

At a recent media round table in Chennai, Danfoss Global president-CEO, Kim Fausing said, “Danfoss India is in the group’s top 10 markets in terms of sales and has the potential to be amongst the top five soon. We have a high growth momentum at Danfoss now. We have made significant investments in the recent past to the tune of €3.5 billion in acquiring companies to be a global technology leader providing solutions that improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions to meet our customers’ increasing sustainable requirements.”

Danfoss India is the second top market for us now in the Asia-Pacific region and we see increasing contributions from India in the coming years, thanks to its immense growth potential from decarbonisation, digitalisation and electrification,” said Astrid Mozes, president - developing regions and chairperson, India board.
