EMO MILANO 2021, the leading world exhibition for metalworking industry, will take place at fieramilano Rho from 4 to 9 October, when the recovery of investment should already have started. The event is promoted by CECIMO, the European Association of Machine Tool Industries, and organised by the operational structures of UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Italian machine tools, robots and automation systems manufacturers’ association.
Metal forming and metal cutting machine tools, production systems, enabling technologies, robots and automation, solutions for interconnected and digital factories and additive manufacturing will be among the products and solutions spotlighted at EMO MILANO 2021. The large and varied product offering on show, the clear link between production technologies and IoT systems will be of great appeal to the operators of the world manufacturing industry, representing all major user sectors: machine tools, automotive, aeronautics, aerospace, railway industry, metallurgic sector and materials.
With these peculiarities, once again EMO MILANO will be able to attract qualified visitors according to its tradition confirming to be the World Exhibition for decision makers of purchases in production technology as 81 percent of total visitors is a decision maker (56 percent takes part in the purchasing decision; 25 percent decides autonomously).
Luigi Galdabini, General Commissioner of EMO MILANO 2021, stated: “The expectations of the sector operators are very high, as a testimony to the firm intention of the manufacturing world to return to normality. Indeed, a large number of applications to exhibit have already been received at the Secretariat Office and their collection goes on swiftly. However, we expect that it will further intensify in the next weeks, thanks to the more and more widespread distribution of vaccines to the global population”.
Availability of vaccines, forecasts of demand growth in all the main areas of the world and important incentive measures for investment in new production technologies in Italy: these are all elements that make up a really favourable context for EMO MILANO 2021.
Indeed, according to the forecasts processed by Oxford Economics, after a 23.4 percent fall registered in 2020, the year 2021 should bring about a recovery in machine tool consumption worldwide, expected to grow by +18.4 percent to 61 billion euro, (Asia 33 billion euro, +15.6 percent; Europe 17 billion euro, +23.5 percent; Americas 12 billion euro, +19.7 percent). If we observe the single countries, all of them should experience a demand recovery, likely to continue also in 2022 and in 2023. Focusing on Europe, in 2021 both Italy (3.1 billion euro, + 38.2 percent) and Germany (5.7 billion euro, +20.9 percent) should again see a plus sign with regard to investment in production technologies. The growth trend is confirmed for both countries also in the two-year period 2022-2023.
Moreover, the Italian Government set up special fiscal incentives, which consist of tax credit up to 50 percent, for Italian companies investing in new machine tools, robots, automation systems, 4.0 and digital technologies in 2021 and 2022.
Highlights of the event includes a START UP AREA which will highlight the role of start-ups for a sector whose strong point is innovation. And a SPEAKER CORNER, which will combine the exhibition with a thematic, in-depth cultural analysis, developed through a programme of conferences on specific topics and through side events that will host discussions with opinion leaders and presentations of technologies related to the sector.
