C HINAPLAS 2021 closed on April 16 with a total of 152,134 visitors (149,771 local and 2,363 overseas). Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the move to the new venue at Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center, Chinaplas has once again proved itself to be a high-standard platform for presenting new technologies and sourcing latest products for the plastics and rubber industries. Bioplastics were again presented in a special bioplastics zone split into two areas in hall 13 and 16.
With an exhibition area of over 350,000 m², Chinaplas 2021 hosted more than 3,600 leading exhibitors from all over the world, showcasing 3,800+ machines, raw materials, chemicals, and other solutions.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we couldn’t travel from Germany to Shenzhen this year. So, we cannot give a detailed report about what was shown in the bioplastics zone. This is why our esteemed colleague John Leung (Biosolutions) shares with us his insight about the general Chinese bioplastic market on the following pages.
