Country of Honor Program – 2018 Edition Review

Guest Country of Honor – Thailand Aluminium Industry Forum

A must-attend event for collecting first-hand market intelligence from Thailand, and discovering new opportunities from emerging market


As a major automotive manufacturing hub in Southeast Asia, and a fast-growing economy with prosperous infrastructure development, Thailand brings big potential opportunities for aluminium industry.

In 2017, the Thailand industry has an annual output of near 2,000,000 vehicles (passenger cars and pickup trucks), the Thai vehicle industry takes advantage of the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) to find a market for many of its relevant products. Meanwhile, the real estate and construction industry has been rapidly growing in Thailand recent years. Thailand does not produce primary aluminium as it has no bauxite resource. As one of the most important green materials, aluminium and its processing technology will be highly recommended in the near future in correspond with the encouraged sustainable growing demands of new energy vehicle, construction and building, packaging and electronics.

Aluminium China 2018 • Guest Country of Honor – Thailand Aluminium Industry Forum held successfully on the first day of the exhibition (11th July, 2018). The Thailand-themed activities brought Thai government, industry associations, and other organizations together to share key insights on local aluminum industry and consumption market, attracting nearly 200 visitors from 12 countries.
