The unique International Composites Platform dedicated to Asia Pacific
JEC Asia is the annual grand occasion for composites industries in Asia. Every year thousands of professionals and more than
200 companies from more than 45 countries across Asia-Pacific come together in this place creating innumerable business opportunities.
“In 2016, Asia represented 43% of the global Composites Market in value i.e. USD 35.26 Billion. This important market needs to be addressed in accordance with its needs and specificities.
For instance, in volume, Asia accounts for 27 % of the global weight of Composite use in EEE; if we add China, this figure raises to 66 % of the world usage in Kilo Tons. Thanks to our partnerships with Asians clusters, government and Industries, and also thanks to our permanent office in Singapore, we are stronger in bringing dedicated content and solutions to Composites professionals in Asia or interested in the Asian markets.” comments Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. “Besides, JEC Asia steering committee is mainly composed of Asian academics, industrialists and officials to make sure that the November event will perfectly fit current and future interest for this region”, she adds.
Conferences on Composites in Automotive, Aeronautics, IT & EEE and Sports & Leisure are already planned on the agenda.
For the first time, JEC Asia will be hosting the 12th International Carbon Festival, the Symposium on Carbon Materials and Composite Technologies. “The synergies of our events will ensure strong participation of Korean companies and institutions but also, thanks to our decade working in the region, we are confident we will attract international crowd from other Asian countries but also Europe and America. Our networking solutions will gather them and boost their business” says Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Asia Director.
