ACHEMA has been setting standards for over 100 years and brings together experts, qualified users and decision makers from about 130 countries. It is a great opportunity to become a part of the innovation and technology summit of the process industry. It will offer an interdisciplinary and cross-industry display, gathering manufacturers, service providers and forward-thinkers as well as improve brand awareness for companies focused on the highest quality offers. It is held in Frankfurt Messe every three years. The event is one of the largest trade fairs in Germany.

ACHEMA is an important driving force for innovation and brings together decision-makers, experts and solution providers in a unique marketplace that is unmatched anywhere in the world. This exhibition is open for organizations with products or services related to biotechnology, instrumentation, control and automation techniques, materials technology, materials testing, mechanical & thermal processes, and many more. For 52% of visitors, ACHEMA is the only trade show they will attend. This exclusive target group can only be reached here. With over 110,000 m² of exhibition space, ACHEMA is home to the full scope of technology and services for the process industry.

Why attend

Process technology is at a cross-roads; as new investments in "green technology" are scaling up at unseen speed, requirements for keeping the installed asset-base online and competitive are more dynamic than ever. Discover the latest developments in process engineering, analytics and equipment that help to meet the future demand.

ACHEMA brings together chemists, engineers and process technicians as well as biotechnologists, energy and environmental experts, IT specialists and skilled experts from many other disciplines.

Highlights of ACHEMA 2022

At ACHEMA 2022 over 2,211 exhibitors from more than 51 countries showcased the latest equipment and innovative processes for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries.


ACHEMA 2022 was attended by 70,007 participants from 127 nations. Approximately every second attendee (46.4%) at the trade show came from abroad.

The ACHEMA Congress covered the entire spectrum of chemical process technology and biotechnology. The lectures provided insights into current research and development projects as well as the latest scientific results.

Economic Scenario of Germany

Germany is not only one of the leading and highly developed social market economies of the world, it leads the multilateral efforts to promote a stable global economy and encourage the use of renewable resources and environmental friendly production. It is the largest economy of Europe and fifth largest of the world in the world in terms of Purchasing Power parity (PPP). Its highly skilled labour force, continuous advancement in technology and well thought out development planning has made it one of the leading developed economies of the world. The economy is projected to recover by 0.9% in 2024 as per IMF.

Bilateral Trade between India and Germany

Germany is the third largest destination for India’s engineering exports and the largest in European Union. Engineering exports to Germany reached its all-time high at USD 3.86 billion in 2021-22 and then again to USD 3.94% in 2022-23 registering a substantial 48% growth in 2021-22 and 2.1% growth in 2022-23 over the previous fiscals. During the ongoing fiscal 2023-24, engineering exports to Germany continued to be optimistic with USD 2.43 billion of exports during Apr-Oct 2023-24 as against USD 2.22 billion during the same period last fiscal, registering 9.6% growth. It is quite impressive as well as encouraging that when engineering exports to EU has declined in 2022-23 and 2023-24, engineering exports to Germany has been rising continuously. India’s major engineering exports to Germany include Electric Machinery and Equipment, Iron and steel and its articles, Auto Components/Parts and Industrial Machinery among others.

Focus products:

Focus products of this exhibition are Industrial machinery and electrical machinery, which are two of the major engineering products exported to Germany. India's combined exports of these two product groups amounted to an all-time high of USD 1.68 billion in 2022-23 that grew with a Compounded Annual Growth Rate of 2.14% over 2018-19. During Apr-Oct 2023-24, exports of these two product groups taken together was recorded at USD 1.03 billion achieving a growth of 16% over the same period last fiscal. Exports of Industrial and Electrical machinery may see a new all-time high in the current fiscal.

Opportunity for Indian Industry

Germany is India’s largest trading partner in Europe in overall merchandise trade and 7th largest source of FDI among all nations of the world. Germany is a leader in providing customised products to the global manufacturing industry via small and mid-sized companies. Germany ranks third in terms of worldwide Machinery and Equipment (M&E) industry turnover and machinery is Germany’s largest sector with almost 6,600 companies along the value chain. Germany’s M&E industry is the top global producer of industrial machinery with 16 percent of global industrial machinery trade. With such a highly developed machinery sector, both industrial and electrical, Germany offers plenty of business opportunities to global businesses including India especially when India's machinery and related exports to Germany have been increasing at a decent pace. This event therefore will be the right place for Indian exporters to tap the vast machinery market of the richest economy of Europe.
