Growth opportunities for Australian composites industry set to expand

Supplier News

Australian companies will be poised to take advantage of the growing composites export market in Asia and the Middle East when they participate in the JEC Asia 2010 Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Singapore from 12-14 October 2010. The JEC Asia event is an annual platform that combines the science, technology and business of composites.

Into its third year, this highly successful event continues to draw major companies in all segments of the industry, and organisers are expecting more than 300 exhibiting companies and 8000 visitors at this year's event. According to JEC's 2010 annual survey of the composites market, the composites market in the Asia Pacific region has been experiencing strong growth over the past few years.

The production of composites in Asia is set to more than double and reach 10 million metric tonnes by 2015. Australia's composites industry has been identified as a market primed for growth as well, boosted by the strong presence of major composites materials manufacturers in the country and the industry's drive towards innovative applications.

"The JEC Show Asia 2010 aims to build on the enormous growth potential of the composite industry across the region by introducing innovative, market-ready solutions enabled by composite materials," says JEC President and CEO Ms Frederique Mutel.

The annual JEC Asia event has been proven to be a very conducive business platform for composites firms in Australia, especially in terms of staying abreast of evolving industry dynamics and identifying new market opportunities.
