bauma 2013

bauma, the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment, takes place from 15 to 21 April 2013 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre/DE.

The last bauma, in 2010, attracted 3256 exhibitors from 53 countries, and over 420000 visitors from more than 200 nations. Covering a total of 555 000 m2 of exhibition space, bauma is the largest trade show in the world. bauma is not only the leading international event for construction machinery, building material machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. The partner country chosen for the next edition of this trade show is Indonesia. Thanks to its extensive raw material deposits, this country offers tremendous growth potential. The present conditions are regarded as favorable for new ventures. As part of the general economic upturn in Asia, demand is rising for mineral raw materials, and this in turn is boosting activity in mining. As a result the requirement for mining machinery and technology is also increasing. bauma is an excellent meeting place for both investors in and companies from Indonesia. The Indonesian mining companies need expertise, technology and capital and they are looking to engage in cooperations with foreign partners. Indonesia’s raw material reserves are the sixth-largest in the world. According to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the republic ranks 5th worldwide for tin reserves, 7th for copper, and 15th for coal. Overall investment in the Indonesian mining sector was around USD 3187 million in 2010. Of that USD 764 million was in coal, USD 1480 million on other mining activities, and USD 905 million on mining services. Market researchers Business Monitor International (BMI) predict an average increase in investment of 10 to 11 %/a by 2014. The value of production is forecast to reach USD 123 billion by 2014. Indonesia is already the world’s largest exporter of coal for power stations. Extraction is exclusively by open-cast mining. Currently the annual yield is 340 Mt, but this is expected to grow to around 500 Mt/a by 2020. This forecast is based on the increasing demand from Asian economies and the rising needs of electricity suppliers in  Indonesia. In particular China and India are buying more and more coal.
