Laser machines market seen at $13.8bn
Dubai, April 5, 2011
Global demand for laser cutting machinery is expected to reach $13.8 billion by 2015, propelling manufacturers to increase production, said the organisers of an upcoming hardware and tools exhibition in Dubai.
“With woodworking, welding and laser cutting machinery becoming increasingly versatile and adapting to the changing needs of the market, we expect to see more and more people opting for these methods to meet their cutting and designing needs,” said Ahmed Pauwels, chief executive officer of Epoc Messe Frankfurt, organiser of Hardware+Tools Middle East.
The event, which will be held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 10 to 12, will feature a range of laser cutting machinery and technology and a wide range of woodworking machinery and tools.
“As manufacturers respond to the greater demand and the evolving realities of the market, the supply of sustainable wood products will become increasingly common. Energy-efficient woodworking tools and laser cutters have become more affordable and now come in a variety of specifications,” Pauwels said.
“Hardware+Tools Middle East will showcase the latest trends and developments in woodworking machinery, welding and laser cutting tools to designers, manufacturers, architects, construction professionals, engineers and other trade visitors from the wider Middle East region,” he added.
Among those exhibiting the latest woodworking machinery and techniques during Hardware+Tools Middle East are Arwani Trading, Golden Tools Trading and GAAM International Group.
Hani Arwani, sales manager, Arwani Trading, said: “This is a sector which is continually expanding and developing around the world and through events such as Hardware+Tools Middle East, we aim to develop the sector within this region, keeping abreast of global standards.”
“At the event we will display our range of welding and other products as well as promote best safety practices within the industry,” he added.
The exhibition showcases a wide range of products and services within the sectors of machinery, tools, and construction and building materials.
This year the exhibition will be once again co-located with Garden+Lanscaping Middle East, the region’s leading trade fair for the garden, landscaping and outdoor living industries. – TradeArabia News Service
