TOP ITALIAN TECHNOLOGY FOR THE CERAMICS INDUSTRY ON SHOW IN INDONESIA
This is a sector which certainly epitomises success abroad, in terms of advanced technology, high quality and efficiency.
Italian machines for ceramic processing have an excellent reputation on foreign markets and the best from the sector will soon be travelling to Indonesia, the world’s sixth largest producer of ceramics.
The opportunity to meet the top international companies supplying technology for ceramic tiles and bricks will be provided by Keramika Indonesia 2014 (http://www.keramika.co.id/), due to take place at the Jakarta Convention Centre from April 17th to 20th. Now in its third year, the fair is organised by Reed Panorama Exhibitions, with the active participation of ASAKI – the Indonesian Ceramic Industry Association.
The exhibition provides an important meeting point in the whole of Asia for the main manufacturers of ceramics and ceramic production technology.
It owes its success in part to its particular geographical context, for the event is held in the country with the largest ceramic industry on the continent: a nation which is also one of the world’s most important consumers of ceramic products. The Italian collective, bringing with it the very latest from the sector, is being organised by ICE (the Italian Trade Promotion Agency) in collaboration with ACIMAC (the Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics). The delegation will consist of about ten important producers of ceramic processing technologies, and will occupy about 150 m² of display space.
This event marks the first participation of an Italian collective in an Indonesian fair which specialises in ceramic machinery, and therefore offers the first opportunity for investors and buyers to examine the quality of Italian-made equipment.
The Indonesian market is recovering from the 2008 crisis and is pushing ahead with the construction of a vast infrastructure network, which will open up opportunities in the field of large civil engineering projects. There are equally important opportunities related to the supply of technology and machinery for various manufacturing sectors, notably that for construction materials, including ceramic products.
The Italian sector specialising in machinery for ceramic production has an export quota of 80% and controls about 60% of the world market: testimony to just how much these products are valued and sought after by buyers abroad. Exports amount to about 1,300 million Euros and are particularly dynamic in Asian markets, especially among the ASEAN nations, and also in South America: regions which were among the first to be touched by the world economic crisis of recent years.
