This November the JEC Asia exhibition will take place in Seoul for the first time, and the event will highlight composites end-user markets such as transportation, renewable energies, building and construction, electrical and electronics equipment (EEE), and sports and leisure.
“In 2016, Asia represented 43% of the global composites market in value i.e. $35.26 billion," comments Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. "This important market needs to be addressed in accordance with its needs and specificities. For instance, in volume, Asia accounts for 27% of the global weight of composite use in EEE; if we add China, this figure rises to 66% of the world usage in kilo tons. Thanks to our partnerships with Asian clusters, government and industries, and also thanks to our permanent office in Singapore, we are stronger in bringing dedicated content and solutions to composites professionals in Asia or interested in the Asian markets.”
“Besides, the JEC Asia steering committee is mainly composed of Asian academics, industrialists and officials to make sure that the November event will perfectly fit current and future interest for this region,” she adds.
Conferences on composites in automotive, aeronautics, IT and EEE and sports and leisure are already planned.
For the first time, JEC Asia will also be hosting the 12th International Carbon Festival, the Symposium on Carbon Materials and Composite Technologies.
“The synergies of our events will ensure strong participation of Korean companies and institutions but also, thanks to our decade working in the region, we are confident we will attract an international crowd from other Asian countries but also Europe and America," says Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Asia Director.
