No. 18 / November 14, 2014 electronica 2014: Welcome to the future
In the year of its 50th birthday, electronica has achieved an outstanding result: more than 73,000 visitors from over 80 countries and 2,737 exhibitors from 50 countries celebrated the anniversary of the world's largest event for the electronics industry. Once again, the number of international visitors has increased – from 47 to 50 percent. As revealed during the four days of the trade fair, the future is connected – from wearables and cars to entire towns and cities.
Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München, summed up: "electronica has shown that the world is increasingly moving together. We need global platforms such as electronica to make this possible." Kurt Sievers, Chairman of the electronica Advisory Board, EVP and General Manager Automotive, NXP Semiconductors, summarized: "Global connectivity and therefore the issue of security are the themes that will be relevant in the future. By giving customers the opportunity to develop applications that we might not even have thought about at the moment, the electronics industry is driving this success."
Sectors such as automotive and health care as well as the manufacturing industry are offering opportunities for growth. These prospects ensured a euphoric atmosphere in the halls. The upbeat mood is buoyed by the latest figures from the sector. Christoph Stoppok, Managing Director of the Electronic Components and Systems Association and the PCB and Electronic Systems Association in the ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association) expects the world market for electronic components to grow by over four percent and reach a value of approximately 527 billion US-Dollar over the coming year.
