wire China 2018

Date: September 26, 2018 - September 29, 2018

Venue: Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC)

The coming decade forecasts strong growth in the area of regenerative energies for China (wind power, solar power, nuclear power). This will entail further demand for wind power cables, PV cables, nuclear power cables and other special cables. Against the background of the growing awareness for green and energy-saving development smart grids have become an important area that is being closely watched in many countries. This also faces the wire and cable industries with new challenges: smart energy, smart cities and the smart grid will in future drive and determine innovations in the field of wire and cable.

Due to the swift development of the Chinese economy and increasing urbanisation the number of high-speed trains, suburban trains and e-vehicles is also rising at the same time: the consequence is higher demand for bare wire, electric wires and cables, power cables and communication cables. There is also strong investment in the areas of electricity, energy, construction and communication as well as in other segments of national infrastructure. 

wire and Tube China 2016 saw 1,645 exhibitors from 31 countries occupy over 43,000 square metres of exhibition space presenting current technologies and latest machinery, plants and products from the wire and cable industries, the tube industry and tube-processing sectors.

Over the four days of the trade fair in excess of 42,000 trade visitors came to Shanghai. This corresponds to an over 10% increase in visitor attendance – a new record for the Chinese technology trade fair duo!
