Cat’s Back in bauma China

With about six months to go before the opening of bauma China, November 27 to 30, 2018 in Shanghai, organizers Messe München have announced some positive figures. “The current demand for exhibition space exceeds our expectations,” said Stefan Rummel, managing director of Messe München.

According to Messe München, bauma China already has attracted 2200 exhibitors – 300 companies more than in the equivalent period in 2016.  

Of note, Messe München said Caterpillar is returning to the show for the first time since 2012.  

The trade fair for construction machines offers an exhibition space of 300,000 m2. “The entire area of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre – 17 halls and the outdoor area – will again be occupied completely,” Maritta Lepp, bauma CHINA’s exhibition director said.  

According to an analysis of Off-Highway Research, the Chinese construction equipment market saw an 81 percent growth in 2017. Off-Highway Research attributes this rapid upturn to the many new infrastructure projects and an improved growth rate in real estate business. This went hand in hand with an increased demand and well-filled order books in the Chinese construction equipment sector. In 2017, according to Off-Highway Research, mobile cranes, crawler excavators and wheel loaders particularly benefited from this situation.

 Lepp said bauma China anticipates a similar number of visitors as 2016. That year, about 170,000 people attended bauma China, where 2958 exhibitors from 41 countries presented their products.
