For the 9th consecutive year, the JEC Asia International Composites event will take place at the Suntec Center in Suntec City, Singapore, for a three-day event starting on November 15, 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,” says 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 Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Asia Director.
According to JEC, 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, it says that 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. Moreover, 3 conferences out of 5 will address developments in end-user industries such as carbon fiber 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 Honor at JEC Asia 2016 which JEC explains is 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 neighboring countries and encourage them to take part in the bigger event: JEC Asia 2016.

CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with Magnum Venus Products and IACMI–The Composites Institute, are organising Advances in Wind Energy, a two-day workshop exploring advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.
