Formerly known as TIPREX and launched in 2006, the trade fair has been rebranded to T-PLAS to signify its relevance to the robust growth and developments in the plastics sector, enhance the regional focus and international outlook of the event, and to highlight a unified business platform for the plastics and rubber industries.
The rebrand to T-PLAS, will see the trade fair co-locate with the well-established event PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL 2015, with emphasis to the global market synergy of the plastics, rubber, packaging and printing sectors. The venue will be BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand, from 26 to 29 August 2015.
According to Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia: "The T-PLAS brand underpins Messe Dusseldorf Asia's expertise in delivering a highly relevant platform that features a full spectrum of solutions, including the latest machinery and equipment, semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastics, raw materials to services for the plastics and rubber sectors. T-PLAS 2015 is also strategically positioned as Thailand is home to more than 4,000 plastics processing companies, making it Southeast Asia's largest plastics processing industry."
Thailand has a booming plastics and rubber industries. It also features a robust local presence of factories of global car and electronics manufacturers, and has the ambitious goal of being the regional leader in the production of bioplastics. The country's bioplastics market is expected to grow substantially by about 130% annually through to 2015. Its top 5 consumers of plastics: automotive construction, electrical appliances and electronics, medical devices, packaging & food.
More significantly, Mr. Ringling added that T-PLAS substantiates an inevitable evolution of Messe Dusseldorf Asia's plastics and rubber trade fairs to deliver a meeting place with a strong local flavour and global appeal. "This ensures we provide participating companies with strategic opportunities to springboard their foothold into the regional plastics and rubber markets." The co-location of T-PLAS and PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL 2015 will sharpen the profile and enhance the relevancy of the two independent trade fairs, particularly with rising demand in the rigid plastic packaging and flexible plastic packaging markets. Both trade fairs will also come against the backdrop of the AEC (ASEAN Economic Community) in 2015 - the economic integration of the region under a single market and production base. The region's plastic industry has shown an average annual growth of 9%, against declining demand, volatile prices, capacity constraints and labour shortages.
Held biennially, the combined depth and offerings of T-PLAS and PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL will bring emerging industry trends centrestage and further highlight the fast growing markets of Southeast Asia's plastics, rubber, packaging and printing sectors. T-PLAS is part of Messe Düsseldorf Asia's comprehensive portfolio of trade fairs focused on the Southeast Asian region, which includes 14 well-recognised trade fairs.
