TIPREX 2011 returns as Thai industry continues leap to high-tech manufacturing

TIPREX 2011, the 3rd Thai International Plastics and Rubber Exhibition, is slated for its return to Bangkok in 2011 at a time when strong economic growth of 5.8%/year is forecasted for the nation. With a diversified manufacturing base boasting of global capabilities, Thailand’s plastics and rubber processors are shifting to higher added value sectors and are interested to invest in advanced solutions and technologies. Thailand’s plastics processing industry has been earmarked as a key component of Thailand’s National Strategic Plan for Materials Technology (2007-2016) that is tasked with developing materials technologies for the automobile, electrical appliances and electronics, machinery, and parts industries, agricultural and food industries, medical and health sector, and alternative energies.

Beyond Thailand, its neighbours are also expecting their plastics and rubber processing industries to grow strongly. Consumption of various commodity plastics in Vietnam, for example, is forecast to grow at annual rates of up to 9 per cent.

TIPREX 2011 is jointly organized by The Thai Plastic Industries Association, The Federation of Thai Industries – Plastic Industry Club and Messe Düsseldorf Asia. It is supported by Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau as well as Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, the organizer of K, the World’s No. 1 International Trade Fair for Plastics + Rubber.
