Demand for rubber products on the rise amid promising Chinese prospects

According to statistics, accumulated sales volume of rubber products in China has reached approximately $33.45 billion between January and May of 2010, with a growth of 35.38 percent on a year-on-year basis, whereas the growth rate enjoyed an increase of 31.57 percent compared with the same period of last year. Stimulated by the promising prospect of conveyor belts and rubber tube, rubber seal, small seal, rubber snubber for building and rubber products for automotive, the Chinese rubber industry has overcome the adversity brought on by the global financial crisis and now is growing rapidly.

The 25th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries (Chinaplas 2011) will be held between May 17 and May 20, 2011 in the largest exhibition hall in Asia – the China Import and Export Fair Pazhou Complex, Guangzhou, PR China.

As the largest plastics and rubber exhibition in Asia, and one of the most influential exhibitions of its kind in the world, Chinaplas 2011 seeks to grasp the opportunities on the upward development of the rubber industry in China. The convention will feature a new “Rubber Machinery and Equipment Zone” to attract not only rubber machinery manufacturers, rubber product manufacturers and other supporting equipment suppliers around the world to participate in this exhibition, but also buyers from different application sectors to visit, source and network with suppliers in the rubber industry. The set up of the zone is expected to act as a catalyst to boost the development of the industry.

The show scale of Chinaplas 2011 expands and reaches an exhibition area of over 160,000 square meters, covering 20 exhibition halls in Hall A and Hall B of Pazhou Complex. It is expected to attract over 2,200 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions together with 11 country/region pavilions from Austria, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, the United States, People’s Republic of China and Taiwan to jointly showcase over 1,900 rubber machines and chemical raw materials.
