€673 MILLION CUMULATIVE RETURNS FOR THE EXHIBITORS
JEC 2011 was marked by a significant economic upturn for composites, with many product launches and contract deals announced during the show.
According to Frédérique Mutel, JEC President & CEO: "Based on the collected data, the cumulative returns from the tradeshow may be estimated at around €673 million, or US$950 million. Around 65 useful contacts (i.e.: with follow-up orders) are acquired on average per exhibitor, with a declared payback period of 20 months."
AUTOMATION AND GROWTH LOOKING TOWARDS 2015
Frédérique Mutel goes on to say: "With the degree of automation expanding rapidly in all countries, the composites market should experience an average global annual growth of 6%, thereby attaining levels of €90 billion and 10 million metric tons in 2015 (compared to, respectively, 68 billion and 8 million in 2011)".
The JEC Group, which brings together all of the sector’s stakeholders, is the only organisation to coordinate a network of 250,000 professionals, from universities, industry and research all around the world.
