JEC, the world’s leading annual composites industry show and conference, celebrated its 50th anniversary this year.   Both attendees and exhibitors had a wide international representation.   Attendance was strong and the show has increased in size for the last several years.   The general feeling at JEC 2015 was of enthusiasm for future industry prospects.   The show focus was on higher end composites through vacuum assisted processes.     Parts with aesthetically pleasing unpainted structural surfaces were exhibited throughout; carbon fiber and other exotic fibers in a variety of weaves and fiber combinations. Parts displayed ranged from a Japanese anime character in a flawless clear carbon laminate to a Le Mans racecar. Flax and other natural fiber fibers woven into fabrics for composite reinforcement appear to be the biggest current trend.

The wind energy sector has been a large industry driver over the last several years and several booths displayed evidence of this.   The current market trend for JEC 2015 was a focus on automotive motor sports and potential automotive industry composite demands of the future.   It’s always exciting to see what new things can be made out of composites. A show like the JEC gives you a good peek into future possibilities and the future looks exciting!
