Abstract: The CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY and Reed Exhibitions Kuozhan Shanghai Co., Ltd. have formed a strategic partnership to jointly host The 8th China International Fluorine & Silicone Material Industry and Application Exhibition, promoting upstream material endorsement and think tank support for the development of the adhesive tape and adhesives industry.
Adhesives are chemical products with a wide range of downstream application scenarios. As well as day-to-day repairs, maintenance and packaging, adhesives are also coming to play an important role in more and more and more emerging fields, including electronic appliances, building materials, automobiles and transportation, machinery manufacturing, new energy, medical and healthcare, aerospace and many other high value-added fields. In these fields, adhesives have become important materials for simplifying processes, saving energy, lowering costs, and improving the economic benefits of the production process.
In recent years, the production scale of China's adhesives industry has also been rapidly expanding, and both production and product sales have maintained rapid growth. China has already become one of the world's major adhesive and sealant producers and consumers, occupying roughly one third of the global market and two thirds of the Asia-Pacific market. Although the market is large, a pyramid structure has emerged within China's adhesives industry, with a large number of producing enterprises at the middle and low-end of the market. Overall, there is also overcapacity, profit margins are low, and to a large extent, the voice of the market is currently monopolized by foreign brands.
The Shenzhen FILM & TAPE EXPO is a professional exhibition focusing on high-function film and adhesive products and manufacturing equipment and technology within the film and tape industry. With 13 years of experience, the EXPO has deep roots in the industry and continues to provide an exchange platform for industry development and innovation.
The 2020 Shenzhen FILM & TAPE EXPO will focus on the development concepts of environmental protection, innovation and upgrading of the industry. This includes strengthening the industry's basic capacity building, expanding display of upstream and downstream products, enhancing upstream and downstream cluster effects within the industry, bringing in a new fluorine and silicone section, and working with the CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY to jointly organize The 8th China International Fluorine & Silicone Material Industry and Application Exhibition, driving the further development of the industry.
Silicone fluoride materials are an important new variety of chemical material, known for having excellent performance, a wide range of applications, high added value, and with huge potential. It is a type of high-end material that has attracted a great deal of attention worldwide. It is an important subsection of the new materials industry, which has been listed as one of China's seven strategic emerging industries (SEIs) and is also a key area of development as part of ‘Made in China 2025’. Currently, there are more than 10,000 types of organic silicone and fluoride commercial chemical products. The value of the global market is close to a hundred billion USD, with an annual growth rate of 6% to 8%, which is about twice that of worldwide GDP growth.
The main organizer of The 8th China International Fluorine & Silicone Material Industry and Application Exhibition, the CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY, will also join with the Shenzhen FILM & TAPE EXPO as a strategic partner. The CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY was established in January 1988 as the result of a merger between the National Federation of Organic Fluorine Industry and the National Federation of Organic Silicon Industry. Answerable to the former Ministry of Chemical Industry and headquartered in Beijing, it is registered with the Ministry of Civil Affairs as a national level one industrial association in China with legal person status, and is managed by, and receives business guidance from, the Ministry of Civil Affairs and the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council. It is a non-profit social organization and the only national fluorine and silicone association in China.
The participation of the CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY signals that the 2020 FILM & TAPE EXPO will join hands with The 8th China International Fluorine & Silicone Material Industry and Application Exhibition to provide a more favorable procurement, promotion, and trading platform for the upstream and downstream development of the industry. Association experts will form a think tank to support the exhibition, provide forward-looking industry research reports for exhibition visitors, and work together to promote industry development. The CHINA ASSOCIATION OF FLUORINE AND SILICONE INDUSTRY will work jointly with Eighth XXXX Exhibition to provide strong support for high-tech fields such as construction, textiles, optoelectronic displays, and automobiles.
