Global sales for diesel engines are expected to grow at a brisk 5.8% CAGR through 2022, and the Asia Pacific region is projected for more than half of new demand. In China, the thawing out of the housing market has led to faster than expected growth in demand for construction machinery, including bulldozers, diggers, and dump trucks. New policies including the Belt and Road Initiative and Asia Infrastructure Bank, have led to greater regional economic coordination in Asia, and increased infrastructure investment across the continent.
In support of the thriving market in China, and the Asia Pacific Region, Duxes will host its annual Heavy Duty Week 2018 in Shanghai on December 3-6, 2018, a gathering of leading professionals in the off-highway vehicle industry, featuring testimony on important technical, regulatory, and market developments. The event will consist of the 4th Asia Diesel Engine Summit 2018 on the first two days, and the 11th China Off-Highway Vehicle Summit 2018 on the final two days.
The diesel engine summit will address a wide range of topics, including the latest content of new emissions standards in major jurisdictions, biofuels, the diesel engine market, aftertreatment systems, as well as fuel-efficient and new-energy technologies that have taken the market by storm. The off-highway vehicle summit will cover the impact of the Belt and Road Initiative on the market, the off-highway parts aftermarket, the latest advances for agricultural, construction, and mining machinery, in addition to the effects of new emissions standards on market demand, and the development of new energy vehicles.
Heavy Duty Week 2018 continues Duxes’ active engagement with the off-highway vehicle industry, a relationship that spans one decade, and 15 previous events around the world. In light of the evolving market environment for off-highway vehicles in Asia, Duxes hopes to encourage best practices by facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experience. Professionals working in the off-highway vehicle industry and in related fields are invited to attend.
