Euromap Member Countries Account for 40 Percent of Global Output

At a press briefing held at Euromap’s General Assembly in Venice, Italy on 10 September, the European Association of Plastics and Rubber Machinery Manufacturers gave an overview of the economic situation of its members.

Euromap represents almost 1,000 manufacturing companies with a combined workforce of more than 57.000 in Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. The output of its nine members amounted to EUR 13.0 billion in 2014, a year-on-year increase of 1.9 %. In the same period global exports from Euromap countries rose by 1.6 % to EUR 9.7 billion.

The focus was on the BRIC countries as customers for plastics and rubber machines from Euromap suppliers. Euromap President Luciano Anceschi said: “The performance of those markets did not meet our or our manufacturers’ expectations. The shortfall mainly resulted from a slump in demand in Brazil and an even sharper drop in Russia. As for China, the plastics and rubber machinery industry’s development was uneven and needs to be closely monitored. India, on the other hand, is giving cause for optimism after a couple of years of declining exports.”

“Overall, global output of plastics and rubber machinery reached EUR 32.5 billion in 2014 with Euromap accounting for 40 % of this total,” explains Euromap Vice President Helmut Heinson. “Despite China’s share rising sharply over the past few years, Euromap managed to hold its own. The same applies to exports with Euromap maintaining a market share of around 50 % over the past five years.” Euromap forecasts a 2 % increase for the current year with output rising to EUR 13.3 billion.
