The ICT industry in Sichuan province has seen rapid growth, rising from an annual output of 600 billion yuan in 2014 to anticipated 1 trillion in 2016. With the new round of Go West and the Belt and Road Initiative, West China led by Sichuan will see major ICT industrial transformation. Particularly, with the rise of smart manufacturing and internet+, new production modes, business models, and growth spots will emerge across the region as part of accelerated development of emerging strategic sectors.

Thanks to preferential policies, positive industry prospects, and huge market demands, the industry is rediscovering West China as a key opportunity region, with the spotlight focusing on ICT and electronics manufacturing. NEPCON West China 2016 to open on 21 June, 2016, is sure to provide an optimal exchange platform for end users and industry leaders as the event demonstrates a comprehensive picture of the local industry. Again, NEPCON West China takes place in Chengdu, a city known as the Silicon Valley in West China. The choice of the location reflects the key position of Sichuan and Chengdu in the local industry as well as the influence that extends from here to surrounding cities and regions in an effort to promote the overall industry upgrade across West China as a whole.

A pace-setting event provides value propositions to the visitors

To provide better visitor experience and lead the smart manufacturing trend, NEPCON West China 2016 leverages big data analysis and pays special attention to hi-tech sectors that particularly attract visitors, such as automobiles, panel display, military, and R&D. The sectors represent rising stars in West China. Some have addressed past difficulties, and others have stood out of competition by leveraging favorable industry policies. All will be stars under the spotlight at NEPCON West China 2016, which brings about great value propositions to the visitors and enhance value added for exhibitors.

The automobile industry is an engine for economic growth in West China as it connects with other sectors and promotes collateral growth. The local automobile industry in West China builds on good infrastructure and has seen rapid growth. As of 2014, the local automobile industry in West China reached an output value of over 200 billion yuan, leading growth among all industry sectors in West China. More specifically, the automobile output in Chengdu Economic Development Zone in 2014 totaled about 900,000 vehicles, representing a growth rate about 3 times of the national average. Now the automobile industry in West China has seen the rise of multiple strong competitors, with leading auto makers such as Volvo, First Auto, Chang’an, SAIC, and Beijing Hyundai setting up facilities in the region. Two core auto industrial parks covering both whole vehicle and auto parts have risen in West China, namely, Chengdu Economic Development Zone and Chongqing Two River New Zone. With rising industry strength and local consumption capability, the big prospects are expected for industry upgrade in the region.

Panel display represents a key component of emerging strategic industry in China, as it provides a fundamental element to support ICT development. The Chinese panel display industry has seen healthy development in recent years. The region led by Chengdu and Chongqing is one of the four panel display manufacturing clusters in China. In the future, Chengdu will focus on the development of OLED, with BOE planning to invest 22 billion yuan to establish world-class mobile display manufacturing facilities. Such developments point to the key position held by the panel display industry in the overall electronics industry in West China.

With strong defense industry facilities built up following the founding of the PRC, Sichuan province boasts many defense players who lead in space, aviation, electronics, weaponry, and ship building sectors. Defense players are leading the ICT growth, with such players leading industry output in the local provinces and playing a key role as local innovation drivers. At NEPCON West China 2016, Sichuan will fully demonstrate its leading resources, technologies, and HR advantages in the defense and R&D sectors. In the future, domestic defense players will work even closer with Sichuan and West China at large so as to promote coordinated civilian-military innovation as well as resource sharing.
