Anceschi said the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) accounted for 22% of Euromap exports. Euromap countries account for 53% of the €521m market for imported plastics and rubber machinery into Brazil, 58% of the €640m imported machinery market in Russia, 38% of the €645m imported machinery market in India and 39% of the €2.5bn imported machine market in China. Anceschi said the result in India is particularly


impressive for Euromap producers, which are typically offering high technology equipment. “This [India] is a very price sensitive country. Asian suppliers cover more than 50% so we consider this very positive,” he said. In China, meanwhile, European machinery makers are benefi ting from growing demand for high productiv- ity manufacturing equipment. “We are seeing in the Chinese market a move to higher technology machines.

They cannot buy this in the local market so they have to buy from overseas, including Europe,” said Euromap vice president Helmut Heinson, who is also managing director of sales at German injection moulding machinery maker Arburg. “Injection machinery sales dropped in China in 2012 but imports grew.” Euromap member countries also accounted for 48% of the €1.8bn market for imported plastics and rubber


machinery in the fast recovering US and 49% of the €716m market for imported plastics and rubber machinery in Africa. “The continent of Africa is most dynamic and in the past four years imports have increased by 45%,” said Anceschi. Looking ahead, Anceschi said Euromap production was returning to growth following last year’s sluggish start. “The fi rst quarter of 2013 was a bit slow but, after that, resumed a positive trend so we expect the year to end around the same level as 2012. It will return to growth in 2014 – we expect €12.5bn,” he said.

Aside from its role as a collector of sales and market data, Euromap also acts to develop industry standards for plastics processing machinery manufacturers and users. Technical experts for Euromap member companies are involved in the European Committee CEN/TC145 covering safety of plastics and rubber machinery.


The organisation also develops its own


Technical Recommendations for machine builders. These effectively become industry standards and cover everything from platen fi xings to measurement methods. It recently updated the Euromap 60 recom-
