As the annual high-end event for the global optoelectronics technology industry, and the front-runner of optoelectronics exhibitions in 2020, Laser World of Photonics China served as a gathering of the leading brands and their new products, technologies and solutions, and showcased the future trends and prospects of optoelectronics technology in modern manufacturing environments. With an exhibition space of 53,060 square meters, the trade fair attracted nearly 819 exhibitors. With strict safety guidelines in place, the trade fair received 57,135 professional visitors during the three days.

Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, deputy chairman of the board of Messe München, on the success of the trade show: “Thanks to the strong commitment of all partners and exhibitors Laser World of Photonics China 2020 was held successfully. The safety and hygiene concept of Messe München ensured the restart of Asia’s leading trade show for this key technology in China.”

Reopening industry finds opportunities in hardship

The Covid-19 epidemic has had a major impact on the global economy. However, China fortunately has made initial progress in its prevention and control, laying a foundation for the gradual restoration of economic activities. The laser industry has also been gradually revitalized as companies resume daily operations and production. The Chinese laser industry has entered a period of rapid development in recent years, benefiting from China’s support of intelligent manufacturing and the expanding application market.

Wang Youliang, director of the Laser Processing Committee, Chinese Optical Society, mentioned: ”The year 2020 is indeed very special. After ten golden years of development, the laser industry in China is entering a period of transition. Coupled with the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, the challenge we are facing is unprecedented. However, the challenges can mean crisis, but they can also be opportunities.“

Exhibitors from the laser, infrared, optics and other industries have made contributions to the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic with IR thermal imaging body temperature screening technology, IR temperature measurement, and anti-counterfeiting laser marking technologies which are essential in the reopening of businesses. The trade fair, together with China’s laser optoelectronics industry, has established a comprehensive procurement and supply system that covers the upstream and downstream of the industry. While promoting the vigorous development of the Chinese manufacturing industry, the trade fair also attracted German and Japanese pavilions to present their advanced technology and applications in optoelectronics and related industries.
