AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands—The annual forum for all concerned in the manufacture and use of release liners, the Global Release Liner Industry Conference & Exhibition, hosted by AWA Conferences & Events, takes place this year in Chicago, Ill., March 31- April 1.
AWA predicts industry growth
Says Corey M Reardon, president and CEO of AWA Alexander Watson Associates: “The release liner market has experienced a softening in demand over the past couple of years, as a result of the global recession and economic downturn, but demand has been strengthening, driven by a recovery around the globe, and particularly in the developing economies. We expect to see industry growth at an overall rate of about 3.7 percent in 2011, with the markets in the Asia Pacific region and South America still showing the highest growth rates.”
