The Chinaplas show organizer – Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., formally issued the notice - Chinaplas 2020 Rescheduled to 3-6 August 2020 at NECC in Shanghai, on 19 February.
Ada Leung, General Manager of Adsale, expressed, “As an important trend-setter, Chinaplas has expeditiously responded to the market needs. Many market activities like consumption, manufacturing and investment etc. are put on hold during the epidemic. And now, some companies have already resumed work and manufacturing in an orderly manner. We believe that once the outbreak is controlled, all suppressed market demand will be released. The postponement of Chinaplas to August in Shanghai will help the upstream and downstream industries to seize business opportunities during market rebound period.”
In this epidemic, plastics and rubber have been used as important raw materials for prevention supplies such as medical protective clothes, medical masks, goggles, gloves, medical equipment, pharmaceutical packaging, and disinfection supplies. Many companies in the plastics and rubber industries have donated money and materials, sped up their manufacturing process etc. to assist in the epidemic control measures.
Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of People’s Republic of China announced the scope of medical emergency protection materials. In the list, there are coated spunbond, breathable film, meltblown non-woven fabric, PE /PC anti-fogging rolls and sheets, seals, zippers, antistatic agents and other important raw materials for producing medical protective clothes and masks; as well as plastic packaging materials such as plastic bottles (barrels) and labels.
The epidemic will also trigger the industries to rethink of the future manufacturing processes, consumers' pursuit of healthy lifestyles, safe and private commute, and sterilizing electric appliances. If enterprises can seize the opportunity to transform and upgrade their business, there will be a potential business growth.
