JEC Europe brought together 1,181 participating companies, occupying a surface area of 50,000 m2, and had an increased attendance, with a total of 32,256 visitors, as compared to 29,867 in 2011.

“Europe can be proud of its leading position in the global market in terms of composite products manufacturing. Technologically, the continent occupies top slot in the sector, and the dimensions of JEC Europe 2012 reflected this leading role”, says JEC Group President and CEO Frédérique Mutel.

JEC claim that, in Europe, every effort is being channelled into the automation of production, which they say is also a key challenge for the global composite industry. As Frédérique Mutel explains “52% of the composite patents filed in Europe for the period 2010-2011 concerned ‘process’ innovations. This proportion is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. In the USA and Japan, the equivalent proportion is 23% and 16% respectively. We are well on track to ensuring the satisfaction of today’s worldwide mass production needs.”

JEC situates itself at the crossroads of industry and the end market, and it continues to attract more and more buyers. JEC say that one out of every two visitors is a user seeking solutions for aeronautical, marine, automotive, construction, infrastructure, energy or sports & leisure applications.
