Composites Innovation on stage at the 9th JEC Asia International Composites Event


Suntec Center, Singapore – November 15-17, 2016


Singapore, October, 2016 – The 9th annual session will make no exception in what makes JEC Asia so important for composites professionals in Asia Pacific: the showcase of the best current and future Composites Innovations during 3 days and through various program coupled with the best environment possible to make business in the Composites Industry. “Asia remains the leading market for Composites in value and will keep on increasing. Indeed, while in 2015, the Asian Composites market was worth USD 31.78 billion, i.e. 43% of the worldwide market, by 2030, Asia should account for 60% of worldwide composites production” says Ms Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. “To support the growth of the Industry, JEC Asia strengthens and renews every year its services to the Asian Composites Professionals and this session will bring its share of novelties.” She adds.


Announcing the JEC Innovation Awards 2016 – Singapore winners

With 11 prizes and 19 involved companies, the JEC Asia 2016 Innovation Awards reward excellence in the use of composite materials throughout the whole value chain. From Raw Materials to Design and Manufacturing, to industrial applications in widespread fields such as Automotive, Aeronautics, Construction and Oil & Gas and finally covering Non-destructive Testing and Recycling, this year’s projects offer a wide variety of innovation. The Asian-Pacific region is becoming increasingly dynamic and competitive with lightweighting once again finding itself at the center of many innovations, and thermoplastics playing an important part in reaching that goal.
