- PRESS RELEASE
Germany and China are fiercely competing for a larger share of the plastics processing machinery in Abu Dhabi and KSA, which together commanded 83% of the overall Gulf plastics production in 2011, against 17% to the rest of the UAE and other GCC states, according to organizers of Arabplast 2013, which will be held from 7 to 10 January 2013, at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
Germany and China have been fiercely competing for lead position of manufacturer of processing machinery in the world since 2009.
China and Germany together account for the bulk of the total world production of processing machinery, while India, Taiwan, Italy, Japan and USA command 20%.
Messe Düsseldorf Germany and Al Fajer Information and Services, organizers of Arabplast, the Middle East's premier trade show for rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, said, "New versions of processing machinery will be displayed at the four day show and manufacturers will be eyeing the boom in the plastics production in Abu Dhabi that currently produces 3 million tonnes of plastics with an anticipated increase of 30% by 2015."
Satish Khanna, General Manager, Al Fajer Information and Services, added, "Looking into the records of the processing machinery in the World from 2005 until now, Germany maintained its lead position at a time China, India and Taiwan doubled their production and USA and Japan cut by half, while Italy sustained its 9% share. We felt that more companies that are being investing heavily in manufacturing processing machinery, assisted by their governments, are participating in Arabplast 2013 to display their wide range of machinery solutions."
Production of plastics in the Gulf region should be a key driver of the Gulf economy and form part of the economic diversification drive.
Khanna added, "GCC production of plastics will focus on catering to the Middle East's rapidly increasing demand that will emerge as the second highest per-capita consumer of plastics in the world by 2020."
Major sponsors for Arabplast 2013 include QAPCO, BOROUGE, NATPET, PETRORABIGH and TASNEE. Arabplast 2013 will be 34% bigger than the 2011 edition, following record number of exhibitors and sponsors. The growth of this show reflects the high global demand for plastics and its raw materials as well as machinery products.
A record number of companies from 41 countries are participating in Arabplast 2013, a reflection on the growing importance attached by GCC countries to strengthening their manufacturing industries, including plastics and rubber sector, which are known to be more sustainable investments in the long run. Arabplast will also have some 26000 trade visitors from 107 countries.
On display at ArabPlast 2013 will be new products and technologies in injection moulding, blow molding, wrapping and packaging, pre and post plastic processing techniques as well as raw materials, such as masterbatches, additives and polymers.
