Acceleration of the Composites Industry Largely Demonstrated at Largest Ever JEC Europe 2014

JEC Composites reports JEC Europe as its largest ever with a record number of exhibitors and visitors from 88 countries, covering the whole value chain and every application sector.

According to JEC, the growth of the composites sector is fuelled by three main international trends:

  • Innovation and design driving further the penetration of these materials,
  • Competitive manufacturing,
  • Bigger volume in strong growth countries.

It says the 2014 session experienced a record stream of visitors to date at a Composites event. The event increased its surface area to 54,400 sqm (+8% compared to 2013) and moved to 2 levels of Paris Porte de Versailles pavilions 7. The 2 floors were completely full, to such an extent that JEC Group is considering the addition of a 3rd floor for 2015.

A Number of agreements were signed on JEC Europe’s stage including JEC Group MoU signed with Korea Institute of Carbon Convergence Technology sealing a cooperation for networking opportunities and information sharing for Korean Companies on JEC platforms in particular JEC Asia in Singapore.

The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony highlighted 16 winners and their partners and prized their Composites Excellence. The JEC Business Meetings Program that puts together selected Buyer’s and Exhibitors recorded no less than 600 meetings over the 3 days of the Show.

The 2nd Automotive Composites Circle brought together 60 key stakeholders of the Automotive Industry and was a huge success. JEC explains that this confirms the Group’s plan to repeat this high-level event at the upcoming JEC Americas in Atlanta next May 13-15, 2014.
