Exhibited at Chinaplas2023


Chinaplas 2023 Asahi Kasei booth

Exhibition Info

The Asahi Kasei Group exhibited at Chinaplas, Asia's largest trade fair for plastics and rubber, held in Shenzhen, China from April 17 to 20, 2023. About 250,000 people visited during the exhibition period, and about 5,000 people visited our booth. Thank you for coming.

From our group, we have developed a series of automotive solutions such as the concept car "AKXY2", which was created with an eye on the future where autonomous driving is widespread, weight reduction, next-generation batteries, and comfortable interior spaces, as well as 5G applications. introduced engineering plastics and detergents for molding machines. We received a lot of questions from customers and interviews from media specializing in plastics.
