MOSCOW (MRC) -- Clariant, a world
leader in specialty chemicals, is returning to the CIFM exhibition March 28Ц31,
2017, at the China Import and Export Complex in Guangzhou, China, said the
company on its site.
Held since 2004, the CIFM exhibition is one of the
most comprehensive trade fairs in the woodworking machinery, furniture
production and interior design industry in Asia. At CIFM 2017, Clariant will
highlight its leading cargo desiccants Ч the Container Dri II products Ч to the
furniture market in Asia.
Increasing urban population in developing
countries and a booming real estate industry have been driving the global
furniture market's growth over the past decade. The Asia Pacific region is
expected to overtake the North American furniture market by 2020 in terms of
market share. In the coming years, the Asian market for furniture is expected to
witness double-digit growth, with the emerging markets of India and China in
particular fueling this growth.
While the furniture market in Asia is
growing rapidly, furniture manufacturers and traders are often faced with a
headache when it's time for furniture transportation. Due to their size and
weight, finished furniture products destined for overseas market are likely
going to go through a long journey that could take weeks to complete. During
shipment, the uncontrolled humidity and condensation can easily compromise the
furniture's physical condition and quality. Mold, corrosion, spoilage and
warping are just some of the harmful effects caused by moisture during
transportation, whether it is via shipping container, rail, barge or truck.
As MRC informed earlier,
Clariant announced the launch of a new generation of high-performance catalysts
for the steam reforming process in the production of hydrogen, ammonia and
