Thema: Ausblick, Trends und Themen der HANNOVER MESSE 2020
industry worldwide is grappling with the twin challenges of technological
change and economic and political uncertainty. With its keynote theme of
Industrial Transformation, HANNOVER MESSE 2020 focuses on the opportunities
presented by innovative technologies, steadily growing and ever more readily
available amounts of data, and a growing awareness of climate protection.
Four megatrends are changing the world: digitalization, individualization, climate protection, and demographic change. Industry is facing a big design task. The current economic and political climates pose additional challenges that make it difficult to maintain reliable partnerships.
HANNOVER MESSE shows global industry the way forward. “The
way we live, produce things and work is undergoing extremely rapid change,” says
Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe. “The manufacturing industry is in
the driver’s seat. The challenge is to take the wheel and shape the change. At
HANNOVER MESSE 2020, some 5,500 exhibiting companies will show how
transformation can be positive, and how change can spark growth and progress.”
Data: Source of efficiency and prerequisite for
In today’s world, growth is built on data, and thanks to
digitalization, the volume of data generated in industrial production processes
is growing exponentially. Our ability to extract meaning from these data and
turn them into profit is also growing.
Today’s industrial technology solutions are interconnected.
Machines and systems communicate and share information with each other
autonomously, while software takes care of the documentation, monitoring and
simulation. This data revolution is driving efficiency and is the prerequisite
for machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Köckler: “At HANNOVER MESSE, we show how machines, production
plants and intralogistics processes can be transitioned to the digital world.
If you don’t make this transition, then sooner or later you will be left behind
by your competitors.” Against this background, HANNOVER MESSE will feature
presentations of software solutions for flexible manufacturing and B2B
platforms for industry by big-name companies like Amazon Web Services, Cisco,
Google, HUAWEI, IBM, Intel, Kaspersky, Microsoft, SAP, Siemens PLM and Software
5G for industry
This year’s HANNOVER MESSE will see the return of the 5G
testbed infrastructure that premiered last year. Network equipment providers
and users use the testbed to demonstrate the kinds of functionality that the
new mobile telephony standard will be able to deliver. Köckler: “The ability to
transfer large volumes of data in real time while maintaining high standards of
data security is absolutely fundamental to the digital integration of industry.
So, in Halls 3 and 21, we are setting up a real, working 5G network.” Numerous
individual showcases in these halls will be networked via 5G. “Nowhere else in
the world will you find such a diverse array of 5G industrial use examples in a
real, working 5G network, all under one roof,” remarked Köckler.
The convergence of
production and logistics
Digitalization is already a major driver of change in all
areas of intralogistics. This includes automated warehouses, where processes
are controlled by software programs, and where automated guided vehicle systems
tour the halls at all hours of the day and night, delivering the right goods
and materials in the right quantities to the right place at exactly the right
time. Another key aspect is that
production and logistics processes are converging and becoming increasingly interconnected,
thereby making production more efficient, flexible and cost-effective. This
year’s HANNOVER MESSE will hold a mirror to these developments by prominently
featuring logistics and intralogistics solutions.
through innovation: the road to carbon-neutral production
Industrial production is energy-intensive. That is why
resource efficiency, energy efficiency, and carbon-neutrality have been on the
industry agenda for many years.
The climate debate currently taking place in society is
helping with this by adding further momentum to the development of sustainable
advanced technologies and carbon-neutral business models. Whatever form these
technologies and business models take – whether smart solutions for energy,
circular economy models or lightweight design – the resulting gains in terms of
resource conservation, energy efficiency and process optimization will do more
than merely counter climate change; they will be good for business as well.
That is why one of the key messages of HANNOVER MESSE 2020 is that climate
protection and forward-looking industrial policies are two inseparable sides of
the same coin.
Energy in transition:
Hydrogen as a motor for industry
Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies span both infrastructure
and industrial applications and are steadily gaining ground in the alternative
For many years at HANNOVER MESSE, the international “Hydrogen
+ Fuel Cells EUROPE” showcase has been a key driver of growth in the hydrogen
economy. This year the group exhibit boasts record participation, with more
than 200 exhibiting companies from around the world. Visitors gain a
comprehensive overview of energy generation and use, transport and mobility, and
the interrelationships between the building-systems, manufacturing, transport,
and energy sectors.
E-mobility infrastructure and related technologies are also a
big topic in Hannover: Exhibitors show everything from transportation systems
and charging technology to electricity network infrastructure and stationary
energy storage technologies.
Young guns: Tech
startups shaking up the industrial sector
effect of digitalization is that it empowers small companies to achieve things
that were once the exclusive preserve of the big industrial players. Startups
are now able to punch above their weight with disruptive ideas and technologies
that really make a mark.
from all around the world are rising to the challenge and helping to shape the
transformation of industry in all kinds of ways, whether in the form of
AI-powered software, virtual reality applications, sensor technologies, smart
materials or intelligent energy solutions.
Not only young
disrupters present pioneering visions of the future of industry at HANNOVER
MESSE. The show also profiles Indonesia’s impressive roadmap for the future. HANNOVER
MESSE’s official Partner Country for 2020 is taking decisive steps towards the
realization of Industry 4.0.
