The year 2023 marked a turning point for China as doors reopened, revealing a multitude of opportunities. This year the economy grew at a rate of 5.2% in 2023, according to the National Bureau of Statistics of China. As the economy recovers, sectors such as automotive, consumer electronics, and e-commerce have regained momentum. At the same time, China’s manufacturing industry is transforming remarkably, shifting from its traditional “Made in China” reputation to embracing innovation with the concept of “Innovated in China”, gaining a competitive advantage in the global market.

CHINAPLAS 2024 is considered one of the best platforms to promote the latest market trends, breakthrough technologies, and innovative solutions of plastics and rubber industries, will be staged at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Hongqiao, Shanghai, China, from April 23-26, 2024. It provides an excellent platform for buyers pursuing innovative plastics and rubber solutions to enfold the accelerated industrial transformation, enhancing new advantages and new momentum for high-quality industrial development.

The new generation of information technology, new energy, biomanufacturing, commercial aerospace, and low-altitude economy is rapidly developing in China. The export performance of China’s “new three”– solar panels, lithium-ion batteries, and electric vehicles is particularly impressive. China’s high-tech industries have enjoyed growth and experienced breakthroughs in recent years. In 2023, the capacity of renewable energy facilities has exceeded 1.45 billion kilowatts and has surpassed coal power for the first time. Among these, wind power installation reached 440 million kilowatts, maintaining its position as the world leader for the 13th consecutive year, while photovoltaic power installation reached 610 million kilowatts, securing the top global ranking for the 8th consecutive year. The production and sales of new energy vehicles have ranked first in the world for the 8th consecutive year. China’s first homegrown passenger jet C919 and large cruise ship Adora Magic City have marked their commercial operations.

These developments signal a positive outlook for market demand for plastics and rubber in China, generating substantial needs for high-performance plastic materials and technology throughout the country. This shifting landscape has magnified the importance of embracing the circular economy, digitalization, and the significance of “Innovated in China”.

As a flagship event of the plastics and rubber industries, CHINAPLAS 2024 will make full use of all 15 exhibition halls, providing over 380,000 square meters of exhibition area and gathering more than 4,000 industrial leaders from all over the world. CHINAPLAS continues to drive the growth and development of the plastics and rubber industries with a full range of innovative materials and mechanical technologies that are both advanced and cost-effective.


The Potential of Digitalization

Digitalization plays a pivotal role in transforming industries, unlocking new possibilities, and driving innovation in the digital era. Introducing smart manufacturing brings numerous benefits, including enhanced operational efficiency, improved product quality, and streamlined supply chain management. From smart manufacturing and automation to data analytics and IoT integration, digitalization enables real-time monitoring, data-driven decision-making, and predictive maintenance. It also facilitates the adoption of advanced manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing and robotics. By harnessing the power of digitalization, the plastics and rubber industries can optimize processes, reduce waste, and respond swiftly to market demands, ultimately fostering sustainable growth and maintaining a competitive edge in an increasingly digitalized world.

CHINAPLAS 2024 will introduce a full spectrum of smart manufacturing solutions and machinery in the Injection Molding Machinery & Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone with over 57,000 sqm. Renowned global companies like Arburg, Krauss Maffei, Demag, Wittmann, Engel, Motan, Kawata, Matsui, Fanuc, B&R, Sepro, Beckhoff, Staubil and leading local suppliers Haitian, Tederic, Borch, Yizumi, Bole, Shini, LK, Topstar, etc. will demonstrate how digitalization can enhance efficiency, productivity and transformation of the industries.


The Global Significance of “Made in China”

“Made in China” holds tremendous global significance in the plastics and rubber industries, symbolizing manufacturing excellence and the prowess of Chinese companies. Renowned for their cost-effectiveness and industrial capabilities, Chinese manufacturers have not only established themselves as key players but have also made significant strides in building world-class brands. The “Made in China” label now represents more than just affordability, it also signifies a commitment to innovation and the adoption of high-end technology. Companies in China are increasingly investing in R&D, pushing the boundaries of technological advancements across the plastics and rubber industries. By combining manufacturing expertise with cutting-edge technologies, industry professionals are driving industry growth, offering a diverse range of high-quality products, and solidifying China’s position as a global leader in these industries.

This year, in response to the national and provincial policies, the exhibition will gather more than 850 enterprises which are recognized as “Professionalization, Refinement, Specialization, and Innovation (PRSI)”, of which over 250 have been awarded as a “Little Giant”. The goal is to facilitate niche companies’ innovations and promote the initiatives of the Government of the People’s Republic of China in strengthening the cultivation of niche companies towards “PRSI”.


China’s foreign trade is experiencing consistent growth in both scale and quality. Chinese enterprises are proactively expanding into overseas markets, with a focus on the ASEAN countries aligning with their “going-out” strategy and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). In response, the CHINAPLAS team has spread its legs across Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Japan, Turkey, Egypt, Mexico, Germany, Italy, and Taiwan Region, to invite local associations, enterprises, and potential buyers to visit CHINAPLAS. Exhibitors at CHINAPLAS shall undoubtedly expect to discover and seize more new business opportunities on the fairground.
