Messe K Düsseldorf

An exciting and informative week at K 2022 is behind us. We were happy to talk in person, to make new contacts, to meet customers and business partners. 

The joy of being able to exchange ideas on a global level again after 3 years created an excellent atmosphere. 176,000 trade visitors from all continents traveled to Düsseldorf for the important industry event. 

Fifty-seven percent, five percent more than at K 2019, said they were interested in raw materials and auxiliaries, with recyclates and bioplastics being particularly popular. 

In terms of investment intentions, machinery and equipment for processing and recycling stood out with 43 percent. Sustainability was a particular focus, as were circular economy and energy/resource efficiency in production.

“It is clear that the need to face up to social responsibility and think about plastics in a sustainable way from the beginning of the process chain has reached all companies. The variety of solutions, machines and products on display at K 2022 for the transformation to a circular economy was incredible,” said Ulrich Reifenhäuser about K 2022. 

We are already looking forward to seeing you again in 3 years!
