This year's bauma attracted record numbers
Organisers are proclaiming the ninth International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles (bauma China), held from November 27 to 30 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, as a record-breaker.

The event attracted 3,350 exhibitors from 38 countries and regions, an increase of 13% from the last show. The exhibition was expanded with two new halls for a total area of 330,000 sqm. Attendance was up 25%, with 212,500 visitors entering the gates.

Stefan Rummel, managing director of Messe München, is delighted with the result: "2018 was a special year! In the exceptional market environment in China this year, … bauma CHINA clearly showed where this industry is heading: Smart, digital and more sustainable technologies are the future."

Qi Jun, chairman of China Construction Machinery Association, also gives positive feedback: "bauma CHINA 2018 was very successful. It has made history in many aspects: the number of exhibitors, the exhibition space and the total volume of orders made onsite. The exhibitors have especially benefited and felt the enthusiasm of users and their expectations for the future."

Among the exhibitors, 73% percent came from China, including Sany, ZoomLion and other major manufacturers.

Industry heavyweights like Bauer, Caterpillar, Doosan, Epiroc, Fayat, Hyundai, Kobelco, Komatsu, Liebherr, Volvo and Wirtgen helped round out the fair, showing their solutions in international pavilions representing Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey, USA, North and South Korea and, for the first time, a European pavilion.

According to organisers, a greater number of intelligent, digital and green products appeared this year, including examples of electromobility and driverless vehicles.

The next bauma CHINA will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from November 24 to 27, 2020.
