About Us

The Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers (SIDM) is a not-for-profit association formed to be the apex body of the Indian defence industry. SIDM plays a proactive role as an advocate, catalyst, and facilitator for the growth and capability building of the defence industry in India.

Our vision is to catalyse the Indian defence industry to effectively contribute to India's national security and become a trustworthy global partner.

SIDM presents a unified voice of the Indian defence industry to policy makers, representing both, their aspirations as well as concerns. By engaging with the national and state governments in policy formulation, SIDM works to create an enabling environment for businesses. SIDM also promotes public-private partnerships to foster sustained engagement between the industry, R&D institutes, academia and innovative technology ventures.

SIDM works to raise awareness about the Indian defence industry’s capabilities on a global scale with a view of strengthening its image, creating new business opportunities as also gaining access to advanced technologies and capabilities, through global partnerships. To achieve this objective, SIDM publishes capability reports and convenes platforms to showcase the domestic industry through international defence exhibitions. SIDM also facilitates interaction between foreign delegations and Indian industry. In addition, SIDM provides consultancy services to foreign companies seeking to outsource to India and is increasingly becoming the preferred partner for those looking for a single point of contact for doing business in defence in India.
