The Composites market share of Asian countries keeps on increasing as demonstrated on a well-established JEC Asia celebrating its 7th Anniversary this year November 17-19 in Singapore

JEC Asia 2014
18 Jun 2014
JEC Group, the leading Composites Industry Organization Worldwide, announces the 7th edition of the annual JEC Asia Composites Show and Conferences to be held next November 17-19, 2014 at Suntec, Singapore. Exhibitors, speakers and visitors from around the world are expected to return once again to this event to make the most of 3 days of Networking opportunities as well as Knowledge sharing.


The increasing market share of the Asian Composites market


The global composites industry should grow at 6% per annum in the future, with Asia representing 50% of the global growth.

In 2013, in volume, the Asia Composites market counted for 4.1Mt out of the global 8.2Mt, i.e. 50% of the world production” says Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO. “JEC Asia was launched in 2008 to meet the needs of the Composites Industry in this ever-evolving market that is Asia-Pacific. Thanks to our local partners and our teams, especially our team based in Singapore, we are able to provide both the Composites Community and also, end-users looking for light materials with a tailored-made event dedicated to the specifics of this market.”


Extensive programs of events for “Knowledge and Networking”

Along with the exhibiting area, the event proposes an “exhibition within the exhibition”. Innovative composites products and parts from all over the world will be presented. As usual the Show will propose numerous events and services: the Posters Area, the Demo zone, the Innovation Awards session, Business Meetings, a job Center, the endorsing magazine and an information web portal, Networking operations for exhibitors, for Aerospace with Aero Leadership Circle, for the Young Generation with a special Award plus a high-level conference program at the Innovative Composites Summit (I.C.S.) mainly focusing on Carbon, Aero and Oil & Gas. The I.C.S. will offer a program of 5 conferences this year, as a renewed partnership with Technische Universität München, TUM Asia and Universität Stuttgart. This continuing partnership guarantees the quality of papers and speakers from academic and industrial backgrounds.


Long-term and new strategic partnerships

Delegations are confirmed from the region (India, Japan, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, etc…).
Moreover, during JEC Europe 2014 last March, JEC Group signed a Memorandum Of Understanding with the Korean Carbon cluster KCTECH, sealing their collaboration and mutual support on JEC events and in particular JEC Asia.


In 2014, the platform will showcase pavilions from the main countries of the region (Singapore, Thailand, South Korea) and collective Booths from America and the European Union.


3 Trends that benefit to the Asian Composites industry

Players within the Asian Composites industry can benefit from three international trends:

  • Global growth driven by final market applications. In Asia, Building & Construction, Transportation, EEE (Electric Electronics Equipment).
  • Innovation breakthrough at global level: R&D and innovation drive further the penetration of composites relatively to traditional materials.
  • Manufacturing and sourcing footprint. As shown during JEC Asia, the prevailing concern is the automation of production.
