Industrial transformation, new technologies headlining at Chinaplas 2015

China’s impetus towards an industrial transformation that is more competitive and upscale requires new innovations and technologies in processes and production

This is a highpoint at the Chinaplas, the international exhibition for the plastics and rubber industries, to be held 20 - 23 May 2015, at China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou. Now on its 29th edition, Chinaplas is expected to occupy 230,000sqm exhibition area with 3,100 exhibitors.

The upcoming Chinaplas show is expected to be an exceptional promotion platform for cutting-edge innovations in plastics and rubber application and high-performance materials from all over the globe, according to the organiser, Adsale Exhibition Services Limited.

A vast array of the latest plastics and rubber technologies and materials will be featured by exhibitors. There will be 14 country and region pavilions, including Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and the US. There will be 11 theme zones , namely Extrusion Machinery Zone, Injection Molding Machinery Zone, Chemicals & Raw Materials Zone, Auxiliary & Testing Equipment Zone, Die & Mould Zone, Film Technology Zone, Plastic Packaging & Blow Moulding Machinery Zone, Rubber Machinery & Equipment Zone, Chinese Export Machinery & Materials Hall, Bioplastics Zone and Semi-finished Products Zone.

Citing the show’s press release, China’s 12th Five-Year Plan emphasises on the emerging industries and being of strategic importance are high-tech equipment and products for energy conservation and automation, new materials, high-end equipment manufacturing, etc. This also means stimulating growth and demand of upgrade equipment in the plastics and rubber industries.

In 2014, the estimated annual production capacity of plastic product is around 68.69 million tonnes, while the estimated annual sales amount is up to US$348.8 billion. The growth rates are 9.5% and 16.5% respectively.

In addition to tremendous demand for high-end technology, industrialisation, urbanisation, market-orientation and internationalisation have further strengthened China’s role as the world’s leading producer and consumer of plastic and rubber products.

Southern China is always an influential region for the plastics and rubber industries. Guangdong province is not only dominant in producing and exporting plastic and rubber products, but also strong in product brand building. Up to the third quarter of 2013, the average export price of Guangdong’s plastic product was US$3,125 per tonne, about 20.6% increase compared with 2012. The surge reflects the rising trend in high value-added production. At the same time, packaging, electrical and home appliances industries in Southern China are famous of high degree of internationalisation and economies of scale. In view of the optimistic progress of the industry, the demand for quality machinery and raw materials should not be underestimated.

The 12th Five Year Plan also introduced development directions for the rubber industry, including new material development, low emission and recycling technology, enhancement and application of rubber composite, energy-saving and tyre renewal technology. The industry is expected to undergo transformation and technological improvement as planned.
