electronicAmericas from 25 to 29 April 2005 in S√£o Paulo, Brazil: The most important dates in 2005 for the electronics industry in South America
Brazil as an attractive trading partner: Electronics exports worth 4.7 billion US dollars and imports worth 9.9 billion US dollars
In South America, the electronics industry is already getting ready for the most important dates in the upcoming year: electronicAmericas - the region's leading trade show for electronic components and assemblies, electronics production, and photonics - will take place from 25 to 29 April 2005 on the Anhembi Trade Fair Grounds in S√£o Paulo, Brazil. Together with the FIE (Feira Internacional da Ind√ļstria El√©trica), which takes place on the same dates and at the same location, it represents South America's most important overall event in the electronics sector. Registrations for electronicAmericas 2005 with the accompanying technical conference are running at full speed; the trend already indicates that the exhibition area will be enlarged by approximately 20 percent. The event organizers - Munich Trade Fairs International, Alcantara Machado and the Brazilian industrial association ABINEE - are expecting exhibitors and visiting electronics professionals from Brazil and the rest of South America as well as from Europe, the USA and Asia.
Many of the international exhibition participants use electronicAmericas as a platform to identify new suppliers for components or to gain access to South America as a new market for sales. Brazil is considered the most important center for the electronics industry in this economic region: According to figures from ABINEE, the country exported more than 4.7 billion US dollars worth of components and goods. On the other side of the equation, approximately 9.9 billion US dollars worth of electronic products were imported to meet the growing domestic demand. More than half this amount, over 5.6 billion US dollars, went into the importation of semiconductors and electronic components alone. Besides the USA and Southeast Asia, it is above all the countries of the European Union that represent Brazil's most important trading partners.
The strong demand that international providers also experience makes itself noticeable in concrete terms every two years at South America's premier trade show for electronics components and assemblies, electronics production, and photonics: According to figures submitted by the exhibitors, at the last show (which included electronicAmericas 2003 and the FIE event that is held in parallel with it), exhibiting companies acquired orders to the sum of nearly 1.5 billion US dollars. A total of 298 exhibitors and co-exhibitors participated in that event. Approximately one fifth of the electronicAmericas exhibitors came from Brazil itself. The other 80 percent hailed from North America, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany. The event was attended by 46,000 professionals from the electronics industry.
