Throughout the world, investments have been rising in oil and gas, petrochemicals and plastics, leading to sales increases. In particular, a large number of German manufacturers and distributors are benefiting from increasing exports to the two major sales markets: the United States and China. Strong investments in Germany as well as good European sales have been adding a further boost to the industrial valves and fittings industry.

These positive circumstances were also reflected at VALVE WORLD EXPO. 650 exhibitors from 40 countries occupied 18,000 sqm in Halls 3 to 5, showing their latest technologies, components and systems for industrial valves, fittings and pumps.

 

The trade fair attracted 11,800 professionals from 86 countries, of whom over 70% were executives and decision-makers. Around 75% of all visitors came from outside Germany, demonstrating the high internationalism of the event once again.
