Back for the 4th year, this 2010 edition will look into how end user requirements and innovations are changing in diverse industry segments, like, personal care, automobile, LED and solar etc. It will also provide an overview on the market outlook for silicon metal - a major raw materials in the silicone sector. Because the silicon metal market fluctuates in step with buoyant demand for the raw material, producers are constantly challenged to strategize to manage this major cost component.

For now, and as reported in their website recently, Wacker Chemie AG has on July 1, 2010 successfully concluded its acquisition of the silicon-metal production site in Holla from FESIL Group (Norway) to make the Munich-based chemical company more independent of raw-material price fluctuations and increase its supply security during peak-demand periods. With the prospect of similar acquisition looming, market players need to explore innovative product manufacturing to retain their competitive share of the market.
