For the 9th consecutive year, the JEC Asia International Composites event will settle in at the Suntec Center in Singapore for another three-day event on 15-17 November 2016.
“Asia is fast at building infrastructures, offering mass transportation and producing light devices. Consequently, a platform like JEC Asia presenting new recyclable materials and products is most appreciated. While in 2015, the Asian Composites market was worth USD 31.78 billion, i.e. 43% of the worldwide market, by 2030, Asia should account for 60% of worldwide composites production,” asserts Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO.
“The Asian Composites market is complex and heterogeneous. JEC Asia is one of the only international platforms to reflect this diversity,” adds Mr. Christian Strassburger, JEC Group, Asia Director.
JEC Group explains that, in 2015, JEC Asia was visited by 52% of end-user companies from 43 countries. In 2016, the industries represented will include Automotive & Transportation, Construction & Building, Oil & Gas, Wind Energy and Aerospace. As regards the latter, the Aerospace Composites Circle will take place once again on the second day of JEC Asia, gathering key players from this industry for a networking and knowledge sharing session. 3 conferences out of 5 will address developments in end-user industries such as carbon fibre in mass production vehicles, low maintenance costs in aircraft, and also market drivers in off-shore activities.
The Kingdom of Thailand has been chosen as Country Guest of Honour at JEC Asia 2016, in recognition of the serious efforts by its industry to develop their composites activities through a solid combination of developing companies, structured associations and committed institutions.
To highlight and support this commitment, the JEC Group, in partnership with the Thai Composites Association, is organising a 2-day International Composites Conference in Bangkok on the topic ‘Composites in Rail and Automotive’, including top-level conferences and sites visits. This event will take place at the Pullman G in Bangkok on 15-16 June 2016. Free to attend subject to registration (firstname.lastname@example.org), this conference will involve all the composites decision-makers in Thailand and neighbouring countries and encourage them to take part in the bigger event: JEC Asia 2016.
CompIC ME, a leading Middle East construction industry conference dedicated to the use of composite materials within construction, will see Ben Piper, Partner and Design Principal for Killa Design, discuss their latest development ‘The Office of the Future’.
R-Tech Materials is teaming up with Zwick Roell to run an introductory training course on mechanical testing of composites.
The 5th biennial Composites Innovation will take place on 20th - 21st June 2018 at the Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK, with particular focus on innovation related to the automation of processes for light-weighting and increased composites production rates.
