NEPCON China 2021 Joins Force with VDMA, Boosting German Companies’ Profile in Local Electronics Manufacturing

Any mention of German manufacturing always evokes imagery of “exacting perfection”. It is precisely because of this quality that enables the German manufacturing industry to remain at the apex of global manufacturing business. For the Chinese electronics manufacturing industry, the production equipment and fabrication techniques of the German electronics industry are something they can look up to as role models,

As a premier event tracking the latest developments in electronics manufacturing, NEPCON has long recognised the considerable market impact of German manufacturing equipment. For this reason, NEPCON embarked upon close collaboration with Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagenbau (VDMA) very early on in our formative days. Thereafter during each annual occasion, VDMA has been organising renowned VDMA member enterprises and brands to take part in NEPCON. This collaboration has been ongoing for over two decades up to the present day.

▶ Made in Germany: The Most Popular Pavilion in All Previous NEPCON Events

Numerous preeminent German companies and brands including ASM, ASYS, REHM, SCHUNK, SMT, VISCOM, YXLON, ZESTRON, Scheugenpflug, WEISS, ERSA and others have been bringing their world-renowned and cutting edge products, innovative equipments, and technology solutions to NEPCON on each annual occasion, and their exhibits and display areas have always attracted the biggest crowd. 

China has Become an Investment Destination of First-Choice for the Global Electronics Manufacturing Industry

uring 2020, as the epidemic rages on, the global economy is put to an unprecedented test. Reopening business and restart of economic activity have been delayed again and again, with the supply chain running into difficulties… Despite this, the Chinese electronics manufacturing industry still shows strong “immunity and resistance” by bucking the trend to record positive growth.

According to statistics compiled by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, from January to August this year, fixed assets investment in the local IT manufacturing sector grew by 11.7% year-on-year, rising 0.6 percentage point. This encapsulated 7.8% investment growth for the electronics and telecommunication equipment manufacturing sector, which has been under the combined effects of the “consumption promotion” scheme, new infrastructures, commercial application of 5G, artificial intelligence, digital transformation and so on during the second half of the year ushering new opportunities for the electronic and IT manufacturing industry.

▶ Generous Support Measure Giving Strong Motivation for German Companies to Expand into the China Market 

At a time when the global electronics manufacturing industry is closely watching the China market, who can set a foot through the door first? Clearly, it would be a case of the early bird getting the worms. VDMA evidently sees this cannot be a more opportune time to help German companies to march into the China market in force. Hence, VDMA is rendering strong support for the contingent of German firms who are making their presence in NEPCON China 2021. Every German electronics manufacturing company or brand taking part in NEPCON China 2021 will be granted direct VDMA subsidy of €330/㎡to cover the cost of exhibition space (inclusive of preparation costs for the German Pavilion). This is more than 20% boost from last year’s €260/㎡, making it the highest subsidy support ever for the German contingent.

When the strong VDMA support measure for exhibition is targeted at a Chinese electronics manufacturing industry of unequaled potentials, this is without the slightest doubt the best time for German electronics manufacturing companies or brands to join the German contingent to NEPCON China 2021. It will most certainly prove to be the golden key for the exhibiting German electronics manufacturing companies or brands to open the door into the lucrative China market!
