Final Report on ACHEMA Frankfurt 2018



Satisfaction and beyond: ACHEMA 2018 ends on a high note

The initial feedback received by the organizers of ACHEMA 2018 paints a very favorable picture: positive event statistics, a long list of announcements on business deals and a lot of work for the sales organizations in the weeks ahead to follow up on new leads. ACHEMA attracted slightly more exhibitors this year. Visitor numbers were almost exactly the same as for the previous ACHEMA show. 145,000 trade visitors from around the world made their way to the Frankfurt exhibition grounds . 3,700 exhibitors from 55 countries put the latest innovations for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries on display. 

for the first time, more than half of exhibitors (53.9%) came from outside Germany. China was second in the exhibitor number rankings behind Germany and was ahead of Italy by only the narrowest of margins. There was also a substantial increase in the number of companies from Turkey, Taiwan and India. Austria, the UK and Spain showed the largest increase in the EU region. France and the US were again well represented.

133,436 m² of exhibition space was divided up between 11 exhibitor groups. Growth was particularly noticeable in the pharmaceutical, packaging and warehouse logistics industries, which booked additional space this year, as well as in the instrumentation and process control category. This latter group benefited from the unmistakable tendency in the process industry to further increase the level of automation as well as from user demand for greater flexibility, both of which come under the umbrella of Industry 4.0. Equipment manufacturing along with lab and analysis systems, however, showed a slight decline.
