ME2 logo.pngManufacturing Expo 2022 is ASEAN’s most comprehensive exhibition to empower the supporting and manufacturing industries including automation and assembling technology, mould making technology, electronics manufacturing technology, plastics and packaging, automotive body parts, and surface & coatings solutions. The shows aims to deliver up-to-date movements of industries and showcase the latest innovations and solutions. 


Moving against challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturing and supporting industries need more power to thrive. Manufacturing Expo 2022 is bringing back all the powers industrialists need in forms of latest manufacturing machinery and solutions from over 2,000 brands from 30 countries. Under the theme of “Power Up” and consisting of five international specialised events serving auto-parts making, plastics manufacturing, mould and die making, industrial automation, and surface treatment for industrial parts, Manufacturing Expo 2022 remains the most comprehensive industry event in ASEAN where over 85,000 participants will network, discover, and be empowered by new knowledge in seminars, networking functions, and more. More important, this exhibition is set to encourage the mutual collaboration to power up without limit through trade exhibitions with the latest technologies that can enhance creativity and power for manufacturers in all aspects, such as knowledge update through conferences organised within the shows by guest speakers who are experts in their fields.


As a platform for information exchange and networking, the event also provides opportunities for dialogues with the machinery specialists so that manufacturers can acquire new ideas and skills to maximise efficiency. Moreover, manufacturers are able to source state-of-the-art technologies that are user-friendly and can help empower their productivity.  For each of the concurrent exhibition, several seminars are being organised to provide technical information and appropriate venue for consultation and networking.

As plastics play vital roles in every part of life, plastic manufacturers encounter both opportunities and challenges in their adjustment to match the current dynamics. At InterPlas Thailand 2022, one of the concurrent exhibitions at Manufacturing Expo, plastics manufacturers will discover new possibilities to power up their businesses, explore more opportunities, and handle challenges with over 300 brands of latest machinery, recycling technologies, raw materials, and more. The event’s concurrent seminars and networking opportunities are expected open the floor for the industrialists to discuss plastics production issues.

As ASEAN’s Most Comprehensive Exhibition on Industrial Automation Systems & Solutions and Assembly Technology, Assembly & Automation Technology features the latest industrial automation and robotics technology from over 475 brands. 


Post-pandemic recovery will spur demand for advanced technologies.


Laying the foundation for sustainable growth

In 2022, every country will focus their attention on accelerating economic recovery. This will include laying the foundation for the next step of sustainable growth after the COVID-19 situation relax. One of the interesting ideas that industrialists can adopt is the suggestion of five trends under the concept of G-RO-W-T-H proposed by Krungthai Compass.


G-Green economy: Governments around the world will focus more on achieving Carbon neutrality/Net Zero Emission through various policies. Thailand has also announced the goal to achieve Carbon Neutrality by 2050 and Net Zero Emission by 2065. Hence, manufacturers looking to succeed in both national and international markets should learn to adapt to technologies, alternative energy, raw materials, and production guidelines that are in line with these policies.


RO-Re-Opening: Krungthai Compass estimates that Chinese tourists may be able to travel out of the country freely by the end of 2022, so relevant businesses should develop quality and sustainable tourism in the meantime. For examples, tourism as a medical service and health promotion which is in line with Thailand’s S-curve and New S-curve economy in order to finally become a medical hub in the region.


W-Work and Workforce: The COVID-19 pandemic has created an employment crisis that leads to The Great Resignation. Krungthai Compass suggests that organisations should remodel their working styles by taking employee safety into account, and promote the development of personnel skills especially in the digital aspect so these employees can support the company’s competitiveness in the future.


T-Technology driven

Today's technologies are developed at exponential rate, and have become important factors for the industry to gain an advantage over their competitors. Examples of technologies that manufacturers should quickly study and deploy are Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), quantum computing, blockchain, cloud computing, and AI. Currently, there are many agencies that provide consulting or funding that entrepreneurs can contact for assistance.



COVID-19 is forecast to eventually become local endemic with reduced severity. This will result in the popularity of health care at home through standardized testing equipment, as well as the rise of virtual health visits and medical services through applications or the Internet (Telehealth).
