Aiming to inject innovative elements into the industry and to explore new markets, The China Innovative Coatings Summit 2018 is a great innovative platform held by Ringier Coatings and Ink China magazine, along with Coatings World magazine and Waterborne Platform.

In China, the government's pushing towards environmentally friendly coatings with low VOC or zero VOC will boost the whole coatings industry's development.

According to China's National Coatings Industry Association, by 2020, 57% of China'stotal coating output will be eco-friendly. It is reported that the waterborne coatings market is expected to reach $75 billion by 2020. During the 13th five-year plan period, the total output of Guangdong coatings is expected to rise to about 4 million tons and the total output value will be around RMB 100 billion by 2020. And high performance and environmentally friendly coatings will account for 80% of total production by 2020.

The summit is focused on providing complex information of advanced trending analysis, innovative technologies and applications, environmental regulations analysis and application examples on eco-friendly coating and smart functional coatings.

To stay ahead, companies must be quick to adapt to the trends. With the multitude of products and services available, the choice is easier with expert advice and an understanding of how trends and regulations are impacting your business. Join us in September 13-14, Guangzhou!
