Aiming to seek more export opportunities, Vietnamese exhibitors include Dong Viet Non-Ferrous Metal & Plastic JSC, Hong Vu Trading Engineering & Sevices Company Limited, and Thinh Phat Cable JSC (ThiPha Cable), among 400 leading exhibitors from 30 countries. 

“We are developing strongly in Vietnam and are now a leading manufacturer of wire and cable in the country, with a 40 per cent market share. We are seeking more opportunities to access more international markets, including Europe and the US,” Nguyen Xuan Phong, sales manager of ThiPha Cable, told VIR.

At present, ThiPha Cable’s products are exported to ten markets, including the Philippines and India.

Like ThiPha Cable, other Vietnamese exhibitors also attend the exhibitions to promote their products and boost sales.

The co-staging of the 12th International Wire & Cable Trade Fair for Southeast Asia and the 11th International Tube and Pipe Trade Fair for Southeast Asia held at BITEC will present an impressive line-up of machinery as well as innovative products and solutions from the synergistic sectors of wire, cable, tubes, and pipes.
Organised by Messe Dusseldorf Asia, a subsidiary of Messe Dusseldorf in Germany, one of the world’s leading trade fair organisers, over the three days, the event will feature 400 leading exhibitors from 30 countries, including seven national pavilions and country groups.

“With rapid infrastructure development taking place across emerging Asian countries, it is an exciting time to be in this region, particularly in Southeast Asia, and to be involved in the wire, cable, tubes and pipes sectors, which are essential components and the backbone of many industries,” said Kobchai Sungsitthisawad, Deputy Permanent Secretary of Thailand’s Ministry of Industry.

“This is certainly noteworthy and demonstrates Thailand and Southeast Asia’s relevance on the global marketplace,” he added. 

Research has shown that Asia will require $26 trillion of investment in various infrastructure areas, including building and construction, power, transport, telecommunications, and water and sanitation, by 2030.

According to Chanatip Surachaisitikul, president of the Thai Subcontracting Promotion Association, wires and tubes are in rising use in the world’s major industries, including telecommunications, power generation, infrastructure, and construction in many countries that are going through vast industrial development and urbanisation.

“Within Thailand itself, the government’s economic and infrastructure blueprint, as indicated in the Industry 4.0 plan, will spearhead a developmental revolution that calls for almost every industry to move towards smart manufacturing systems and digitally-driven operations at factories,” Surachaisitikul added.

Messe Dusseldorf in Germany is responsible for organising more than 20 global No.1 exhibitions in various industries, including medicine and health. Particularly successful events include MEDICA, COMPAMED, and REHACARE International held in Dusseldorf, Germany.

With extensive expertise in organising trade fairs in Southeast Asia, Messe Dusseldorf Asia has been running numerous trade fairs in the region since 1995.
