K,Strong Impetus for the plastics and rubber industry

Nov 05, 2019 | By CENS | KUNG HSING PLASTIC MACHINERY CO., LTD.

K, the leading global trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry, has drawn to a close in Düsseldorf after eight days on Wednesday (23 October 2019). The 3,330 exhibitors from 63 nations proved impressively: plastics continue to be an innovative, indispensable material. But they also unanimously underscored the necessity of having operational circular economies along the complete material chain and to this end already presented numerous concrete solutions. Companies struck a nerve with people with this focus because the approximately 224,116 visitors from 168 countries took great interest especially in recycling systems, sustainable raw materials, resource-saving processes. Furthermore, K 2019 was characterised by a high propensity to invest as before. The intention among the international trade audience to get perfectly geared up for the future with the latest technologies was clearly perceivable.

The nations especially well represented on the part of visitors after Germany were Italy, the Netherlands, India, Turkey and China, followed by the USA. Furthermore, a marked increase in the number of trade visitors from the Russian Federation, Japan and Brazil could be registered. The number of executives among K visitors rose slightly yet again: to the tune of 68% came from top or middle management. While for German trade visitors increased efficiency ranked first as today's most important issue, for European and non-European trade fair guests the expansion of product and service portfolios was in the foreground.

Machinery and equipment manufacturing, the biggest segment at K 2019 with 1,975 exhibitors, was also centrestage in terms of visitor interest, with two-thirds of all people surveyed mentioning this area first. 52% said they were primarily interested in raw materials and auxiliaries, whereas for 28% of visitors semi-finished products and technical plastics and rubber parts were the major reason for coming (multiple choices possible).
