Composites Innovation on stage at the 9th JEC Asia International Composites Event

JEC Asia 2016
8 Nov 2016
The 9th annual session will make no exception in what makes JEC Asia so important for composites professionals in Asia Pacific: the showcase of the best current and future Composites Innovations during 3 days and through various program coupled with the best environment possible to make business in the Composites Industry.

“Asia remains the leading market for Composites in value and will keep on increasing. Indeed, 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 Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO.

“To support the growth of the Industry, JEC Asia strengthens and renews every year its services to the Asian Composites Professionals and this session will bring its share of novelties.” she adds.


Announcing the JEC Innovation Awards 2016 – Singapore winners

JEC Asia 2016 - Innovation Awards

With 11 prizes and 19 involved companies, the JEC Asia 2016 Innovation Awards reward excellence in the use of composite materials throughout the whole value chain. From Raw Materials to Design and Manufacturing, to industrial applications in widespread fields such as Automotive, Aeronautics, Construction and Oil & Gas and finally covering Non-destructive Testing and Recycling, this year’s projects offer a wide variety of innovation. The Asian-Pacific region is becoming increasingly dynamic and competitive with light-weighting once again finding itself at the center of many innovations, and thermoplastics playing an important part in reaching that goal.


First ever Startup Competition on JEC Asia

“For the first time in Asia we wanted to create convergence between actual market needs, industrial processes and innovative ideas through this new competition that will highlight the potential of promising startups in the industry. We are thrilled to partner with xC Consultants for this new competition”, states Christian Strassburger, JEC Asia Director.

A selection of startups will have a physical presence on a startup village on JEC Asia 2016 during the 3 days of the event and will be able to pitch their project in front of a jury of experts and network with composites professionals onsite.


6 conferences to cover Composites Developments and End-User markets
