"The Asian Composites market amounts to 44,28 billion SD (Singapore dollars). In value, it represented 43% of the worldwide market in 2014. The demand made on materials has become greater in Asia. Investment in composites has increased and relative costs have improved. This is driving higher growth in both Innovation and Composites consumption in Asia.” says Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. “Another dimension of the Asian Composites market is its complexity and heterogeneity. Asia needs an international platform to present this diversity. JEC Asia plays this unique role.” adds Mrs. Mutel.
The next edition of JEC Asia will take place on November, 15-17, 2016 in Singapore.
