Greater internationality, clear trends, satisfied exhibitors, but fewer visitors: these are the keywords that summarise ACHEMA 2018.

Export market China booming with 54 percent growth
German manufacturers of components and systems for water treatment, wastewater and sludge treatment were able to stabilise their exports at a high level in 2017. Compared to the previous year, exports rose slightly (plus 0.4 percent) to around 993 million euros (2017) compared to around 990 million euros (2016).
The field of manufacturing and packaging machinery for pharmaceuticals is a small but highly specialized segment of German engineering, and very successful in international competition. ACHEMA is the international showcase for this segment. All the leading international manufacturers attend this fair with their stands.
