PCIM Asia 2015 to be held in June confirms more than 70% of exhibition space


Concurrent fairs maximise synergies for automation industry in East and Central China

Promising Chinese market demands power devices

PCIM Asia is an international exhibition and conference for power electronics, intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management. The fair will be held from 24 – 26 June at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Center, and is jointly organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. In preparation of the event, a press conference will be held today to give an overview of the 2015 edition and explain the show’s significance to the power electronics industry.

Commenting on the fair’s goals for this year, Mr Hubert Duh, Executive Director of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, shared: “We reached some great heights in our niche sector in 2014, and I believe this momentum will continue for the upcoming fair. In fact, currently 70% of exhibition space has already been booked for the 2015 show. For the upcoming show, we expect to bring in nearly 100 exhibitors from around the world to showcase their offerings in over 6,000 sqm of exhibition space. As for visitors, figures are anticipated to exceed 6,000.”

Mr Duh added: “PCIM Asia, a sister event of PCIM Europe – the world’s leading trade show for power in Germany, has achieved tremendous results since its launch in 2002. What sets PCIM Asia apart from other events is the PCIM Asia Conference and is regarded as one of the most important conferences for power electronics in China. Experts from the industry and academia are invited each year to share their latest developments and expectations on future trends. To date, we have confirmed 30 oral sessions, two poster sessions and two keynote speakers during the two-day conference. The combination of professional exhibition and conference has lead PCIM Asia to be an ideal platform for business and information exchange, as well as networking.”

The show organisers intend to attract more and more of the world’s leading power electronics brands. Some of the leading companies confirmed for 2015 include Mitsubishi, Power Integrations, Vincotech, FUJI, Toshiba, Infineon, LEM, CSR, CNR, StarPower, Shanghai Eagtop, Shanghai Guidu and others.

Concurrent fairs maximise synergies for automation industry in East and Central China

PCIM Asia is strategically held concurrently with the inaugural edition of SPS Automation Shanghai, a sister event of the leading European industrial automation fair SPS IPC Drives and SIAF Guangzhou. Known for its professionalism, PCIM Asia draws in serious buyers from around the world such as engineers and R&D experts. Power devices and industrial automation are interrelated in many respects, and exhibitors of PCIM Asia will benefit from the synergies of both fairs, which will occupy a total of 10,000 sqm together.

Promising Chinese market demands power devices

The power electronics industry is a promising market for emerging countries like China. The country’s central government strategic development plans cover solar and wind energy, smart grid, electric vehicle (EV), green building, high-end equipment manufacturing, new energy equipment and more. In 2013, China surpassed the US and became the largest investor in renewable energies by allocating USD 56.3 billion.

The automotive industry is another promising market. According to statistics from the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, over 3,770 new energy vehicles were produced in May 2014 alone, a 98.32% increase from the month prior. With the upward trend of popularity in new energy automobiles, the demand for electric motors is expected to develop even more rapidly in the future.

China’s power electronics industry is expected to experience unprecedented growth until 2025. According to CCID, the compound annual growth rate for general power electronics devices is forecasted to increase by over 20%. Novelty power electronics, such as insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBT), will grow at an even greater rate of over 30% per year. The country’s market for IGBTs is projected to sore from USD 894 million in 2010 to USD 2.4 billion in 2015 and USD 5.5 billion by 2020.
