SPECIAL FEATURE | 10 YEARS OF COMPOUNDING WORLD


applications.Compounding World is written exclusively for compounders about the technology, business issues, and market developments that impact on the compounding industry. We aim to deliver real value to both readers and advertisers (the latter benefiting from cost-effective delivery of their advertisements to their target market all around the world). From the outset, our aim was accessibility. We have always made a downloadable PDF edition available but the launch of the Apple appstore in 2008 (with just 500 apps, incidentally) offered a more user friendly alternative that allowed down- loaded editions to be saved and used offline. In 2012 the first Compounding World app was released to the Apple and Google Play appstores. Over the first 12 months the app was downloaded 3,030 times from more than 70 countries. At the time of writing that total stands at 13,777 from more than 90 countries. If you’ve not yet tried it please give it a go — you’ll find it in your appstore. Compounding World has now been joined by four other free process-specific digital plastics magazines and apps —Film and Sheet Extrusion, Pipe and Profile Extrusion, Injection World and,


most recently, Plastics Recycling World. All are available free and our on-line archive makes it as easy to access a five-year old edition as the current issue. The editorial team has grown, too, now comprising six journalists with a combined total of more than 130 years of plastics industry expertise. And Compounding World has grown beyond its magazine origins. More than a thousand readers have already joined us at our Compounding World Forum in the US, the Compounding World Con- gress in Europe, and at Compounding World Asia. And last year we stepped up another gear with the Compounding World Expo exhibition and confer- ence in Germany. That attracted more than 4,000 visitors and moves to Cleveland in the US next year. We hope to see some of you there as we continue to put the compounding industry on the world map. Over the past 10 years, AMI’s digital magazines business has grown from an idea to become a major player in plastics publishing and, we hope, a truly valuable source of information to our readers. And it all started here! Over the next few pages we take a look back to some of the news and events of Compounding World’s first 10 years. We hope you find it an interesting read.
