With the aim of facilitating sustainable development and fostering technical improvement in the polyurethane industry, Suntower is partnering with the Shanghai Polyurethane Industry Association and the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology to hold the Polyurethane Technology International Forum 2023 in Shanghai from September 13 to 15, 2023.
The upcoming event will focus on new industry pattern and emerging applications in the post-covid era. As one of the most influential annual polyurethane technology forum in China, it will bring together industry participants including raw material suppliers, additive suppliers, equipment providers, polyurethane manufacturers and testing agencies. It is expected to draw approximately 300 delegates from around the world.
In an era of rapid technological progress, polyurethane materials have been widely applied in new energy vehicles, green furniture, healthcare, cold chain logistics, aerospace, bullet trains, wind power and LNG carriers. According to PUdaily, the global polyurethane market size reached USD 55 billion in 2022, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5.8% for the 2023-2028 period. China, as a powerhouse of polyurethane production and consumption, has made a great contribution to the development of global polyurethane industry. In 2022, the country saw polyurethane output of 16 million tonnes, accounting for 45% of the global output.
However, the industry still suffers from overcapacity and environmental issues, making sustainability a major industry concern, and necessitates the development of new green and smart materials. In this context, deepening exchanges and enhancing cooperation to reach a mutually beneficial result are of great significance.
The unique 3-day event will be a great chance for learning, networking and discovering new business opportunities. 20 booths will be provided for exhibitors to showcase their brands and product developments. Over 30 brilliant global industry leaders will speak on cutting edge technologies and applications of PU material in pursuing sustainability, environmental protection and responsible care. Attendees can find brainstorm opportunities in several panel discussion sessions as well as one-to-one meetings to deepen their exchange of views.
The forum encompasses a variety of topics including:
Special this year, the forum is structured to include plenty of time to build long-standing relationships in a relaxed environment whether over buffet lunch, coffee breaks, or cocktail party, enabling all visitors to communicate effectively with others and discover cooperation opportunities. Whether attendees are in need of cutting cost of raw materials, promoting products to broader Asian markets, or learning more about the latest technologies, the Polyurethane Technology International Forum 2023 can help them seize a brighter future.
