Bauma 2016 will be the 31st edition of the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. It will be held in Munich on April 11-17 2016.

The show covers over 605,000 square metres of exhibition space, with over 3,400 exhibitors (already sold out), and based on previous shows, an expected 500,000 visitors.

At a recent roadshow promoting the 2016 event, chief representative and senior executive officer, Dr Wolf-Dietrich Müller, promoted the importance of the international trade fairs for the release of innovations from the leading equipment manufacturers. A key highlight of the shows is the innovation awards, especially as technological advancements continue to change the way equipment is used on-site. Awards will be announced on April 10 covering machinery, machinery components, construction process/construction work, research, and design.

The success of bauma events, which now includes shows in South Africa, India and China, are also indicators of global industry well-being. The map shows construction equipment sales in the first half of 2015 (source ISC statistics). Oceania’s drop of eight percent would be directly linked to the down-turn in the Australian mining sector. The major falls of 72 percent in Russia, 37 percent in China, 32 percent in Latin & South American and 25 percent in Africa indicate an economic uncertainty across much of the world.
