Automechanika Dubai 2013 Opens Tomorrow June 11th

With Automechanika Dubai 2013, the largest international trade and networking event for the automotive aftermarket in the region, set to open tomorrow Tuesday, June 11th, organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt is optimistic that the 2013 edition will be a success with 12% more exhibitors than the previous edition.

Market indicators point to a continued improvement in the prospects of the automotive aftermarket in the region adding to the attractiveness of the trade fair for leading international manufacturers and suppliers. Spanning across 58 different countries, exhibitors are taking up considerably more space for this year's Automechanika Dubai meaning the exhibition will spread across 11 halls at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre when it takes place next week.

Frost & Sullivan, leading research firm and Knowledge Partner of Automechanika Dubai, reports that the total auto components consumption in the GCC countries was worth as much as US$ 7.54 billion in 2012. Going forward, the aftermarket is expected to maintain a healthy rate of growth, with Frost & Sullivan estimating that consumption in Parts & Accessories, Lubricants and Batteries will grow at a CAGR of around 13% between 2012 and 2017, while consumption in tyres & inner tubes is expected to keep pace with a CAGR of 12.9% over the same period.

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt, said: “In 2011 the auto parts total trade in Dubai reached US$9.9 bn surpassing its previous high of 2008. The 2012 figures will be released during the exhibition and we are excited about the potential of it hitting the US$10 bn mark. Automechanika Dubai has kept pace with these growth trends and is a serious instigator of the ongoing growth and development of this massive industry across the region.”

Automechanika Dubai will feature a vast variety of aftermarket products and services from the leading international brands that are increasingly choosing the exhibition as their preferred launch pad into the Middle East region. The growth in the exhibition spans across all the product groups. The Parts & Systems section has grown by an incredible 68% since 2010 while the Repair & Maintenance section has nearly doubled its number of exhibitors in the same period. Meanwhile the Tyres & Batteries section, which was first introduced to the show in 2007, has witnessed a spectacular four-fold increase over the same period.

Exhibitors were also optimistic at upcoming prospects on the run up to the show. MAN Truck & Bus Vice President After Sales in the Middle East, Rudolf Wiegand, said: “Automechanika Dubai is well known as a reliable showcase of upcoming trends and developments in the market. We will present our latest products and after sales solutions such as the new MAN Genuine Parts ecoline and are confident of generating some fresh business leads in the region.”

Automechanika Dubai is part of an umbrella of 13 global Automechanika fairs organised by Messe Frankfurt across Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Africa. Over the past decade the Dubai edition has transformed itself from its origin as a one-hall show that attracted just 119 exhibitors in 2003, into a region-encompassing comprehensive business platform.

Automechanika Dubai will showcase automotive components, accessories, garage equipment as well as refuelling and car washing equipment and machinery. The show is divided into 5 key sections, namely: Parts & Systems, Repair & Maintenance, Tyres & Batteries, Service Station & Car Wash and Accessories & Tuning.

Automechanika Dubai will also feature the Automechanika Academy, popular among regional industry professionals and trade visitors for its series of seminars and workshops by international and regional experts on key issues and challenges facing the automotive industry.
