The size of the show sets a new record: with over 97,000 square meters of gross exhibition space (a rise of 14 percent and 25 percent against 2017 and 2018 editions respectively).
More than 1,230 exhibitors from 32 countries/regions (as of Aug. 5, 2019) will come together to present their products and services in 5 exhibit zones, namely "Powder Coatings Technology," "UV/EB Technology & Products," "International Machinery, Instrument & Services," "China Machinery, Instrument & Services" and "China & International Raw Materials." The total net exhibition area of the ‘UV/EB Technology & Products’ exhibit zone continues to expand noticeably (a rise of 21 percent against 2018 Guangzhou show), resulting from a more mature sector with increasing applications and innovations.
Organizers are expecting more than 30 percent growth on the amount of eco-friendly or sustainable exhibits being showcased, resulting from stricter environmental regulations in China and the world. Demands for high-performance coating materials, such as waterborne resins and high-quality TiO2, continue to thrive to achieve high-quality manufacturing and greater sustainability. CHINACOAT has been a strategic destination for technological highlights and innovations of the coatings industry, attracting world market leaders for their presence in Shanghai.
Confirmed participants include Afcona, Allnex, Ashland, Buhler, BYK, Chemours, Clariant, Covestro, Delta Specialties, DIC, DSM, Dukepolytech, ECKART, Elementis, Eternal, Evonik, H.J. Unkel, Hexion, Kroma, LANXESS, LOTTE, Omya, Silok, Synthomer, Wanhua, etc.
