In the final lap before JEC World!

JEC World is approaching, and it’s worth noting that the event is returning to its original schedule, marking a significant milestone since the onset of the health crisis and its lingering impact. A symbolic move, and while we have come back from the illusion of a saving « New Normal », it’s reassuring to see that certain crises, which heavily impeded activities, are fading.

We’re coming up to the last lap before the opening of JEC World and we’re delighted to share the preview of the event with you.

A preview like a condensed version of an abundant source that foreshadows the upcoming growth of the composites market. A source in full effervescence from which streams of innovations emerge. From the chrysalises of the Startup Booster to the butterflies of the Innovation Awards.

These innovations also serve as a driver of economic growth, and it is worth noting that the composites market has doubled over the past twenty years. Beyond the exceptional phenomenon of the Covid crisis, the composites industry is experiencing steady expansion, and it has resumed its forward march in 2023.

The composites industry is also embracing the pressing new horizon of sustainability. On this front, things are accelerating rapidly, and the invention, or more precisely, the discovery of balanced circularity, is not simple. The topic is on everyone’s lips, in all project specifications, and there is no doubt that it will be one of the mottos of JEC World 2024… and the following editions!
