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 (email@example.com), 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.
More than 1,800 visitors attended the KraussMaffei Competence Forum in Munich, Germany, on 6-7 June to celebrate the company’s 180th anniversary under the theme ‘Technology Pioneers – from Tradition to Innovation.’
Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit nonwovens for use in surface finishing, imparting EMI shielding or fire protection, and other transport applications, at the JEC Conference on The Future of Composites in Transportation, taking place in Chicago, US, on 27-28 June.
Advanced Engineering 2018, the UK’s annual gathering of OEMs and engineering supply chain professionals, has opened registration for its 10th anniversary show. The first 50 people signing up will be offered a free Ultra High Capacity Power Bank for mobile phones and laptops, to be picked up at the show.
