French companies to exhibit in the ingredients fragrances and testing zones at In-Cosmetics Europe

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 09-mars-2017 17:26:34
France is an internationally recognised supplier of raw materials for the cosmetics industry. Certified for their quality and purity, these raw materials comply with the strictest regulations and respect social ethics.  Rich in a range of plant, marine and mineral ingredients as well as chemically derived ones, they appeal to the largest international luxury brands. The French Touch will be represented by 91 French companies on the France Pavilion organised by Business France, at the In-Cosmetics Global trade fair  to be held from 4th to 6th April 2017 at London’s ExCel Center. These companies will be demonstrating their know-how in the Ingredients, Fragrances and Testing Zones of this year’s fair.   New products and key trends In 2015, the global market for cosmetics ingredients was estimated at US$ 9 billion (around £7.39 billion) in the key regions of Europe, the US, Brazil, China, Japan, Southeast Asia and India.  The market is constantly growing and benefits from innovative R&D that enables high-value added active ingredients to be developed. However, companies in the industry must also adapt to continually changing regulations. Many French companies will be launching new products, improved formulas or responding to new trends at In-Cosmetics. We note particular growing interest in protecting the skin from the effects of pollution .  French ingredients suppliers offer solutions that form a screen against pollution by means of a film acting as a second skin. Others rely on active ingredients that are powerful antioxidants and anti-lipoperoxidants, or have anti-glycation or anti-free radical properties , which decrease inflammation, moisturise the skin and act against pigmentation marks caused by pollution. Detox programmes have been developed to counteract urban stress.   Testing, Testing… Creating new active ingredients requires the development of customised in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo biological tests. French laboratories specialised in toxicity testing look for evidence of endocrine disruptors in volunteers (both men and women) . They will be exhibiting in the Testing zone. For the first time, the Fragrances Zone is exhibiting perfumed ceramics made of Limoges porcelain (stand Q50). While the French offering includes a wide range of natural and organic plant, marine and mineral (clay type) ingredients of certified origin, it also bases its offer on their absence of residues , which is greatly appreciated by large brands.  The French build their reputation on very pleasing, light and fluffy textures, the reflective effects of pigments and on colour control thanks to the use of very specialised software. These ingredients are not only intended for the cosmetics industry, but also for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Being environmentally conscientious , some French laboratories use living plant cells by ’milking’ their roots up to six times per year, which preserves the parent plant; others use renewable and biodegradable ingredients. With the help of regional partners such as Bretagne Commerce International , Cosmetic Valley , DEV-UP  and CCI Aquitaine , the Business France  Pavilion (National Agency promoting internationalisation of the French economy) will be displaying the latest French innovations at the 2017 edition of In-Cosmetics Global. All of the participants will be present in three blocks in the South Hall: -    stands C10 – CC10 – C30 – CC30 – C50 and CC50 for Ingredients -    stands P52 to PP57 and on pods PP50 – Q50 – Q51 and QQ55 for Fragrances -    stands D30 and D50 for Testing   For further information please see the catalogue or please contact: Christiane Peslherbe Project Manager Business France Paris Tel: +33 1 40 73 36 90 christiane.peslherbe@businessfrance.fr http://export.businessfrance.fr Press contact UK : Catherine Ryall catherine.ryall@businessfrance.fr    

Business France publishes improved operating results across the board

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 03-mars-2017 13:17:15
Business France has continued to build upon its success for the second successive year following its creation in January 2015, according to improved operating results across the board published Thursday, as greater synergies between supporting French exporters and attracting foreign investment to France start to pay off. The number of SMEs and mid-size companies benefiting from Business France’s export services increased from 9,755 in 2015 to  9,993 in 2016 , including 5,682 through collective events (France Pavilions at international trade fairs, business meetings, etc.) and 3,429 receiving customized support. 462 collective events  were organized abroad as part of the France Export Program, including  152 France Pavilions . Criteria for providing customized support and follow-up to growth SMEs and mid-size companies, in partnership with France’s public investment bank Bpifrance, showed that  1,101 businesses  had initiated their international action plan by the end of 2016, well ahead of an initial target of 1,000 by the end of 2017. Business France’s strategy to make the VIE International Internship Program a leading bespoke solution in foreign countries for businesses and young professionals alike can be seen by the surge in interns taking part in the program, rising from 9,006 in 2015 to  9,572 by the end of 2016  in 134 countries. One business in two  receiving support from Business France in 2016 struck at least one trading agreement, while three in four businesses found new potential trading partners. Moreover,  643 foreign investment decisions receiving support from Business France  and its regional development partners were successfully completed during the year, up from 522 in 2015, while the total figures for foreign investment projects and jobs generated in France will be published in late March 2017. No fewer than 1,553 foreign investment projects were identified and followed up in 2016, up from 1,333 in 2015, while Business France teams organized around a thousand site visits for foreign investors. Business France currently operates in  73 different countries , having doubled its presence throughout the world to attract foreign investors, opening new branches in Kuwait and Ethiopia in 2016, along with two offices in Iran and Nigeria. As France’s leading player in the international development of the French economy, Business France signed or renewed a number of public and private partnerships in 2016, which included agreements with France’s public investment bank Bpifrance, French Chambers of Commerce and Industry both within France and internationally, France’s foreign trade advisors (CCEFs), Expertise France, Atout France, the French Trademark and Patent Office (INPI), the French Trade Entrepreneurs Federation (OSCI), the French Employer Federation MEDEF International, the French Development Agency (AFD), Euler Hermes, Société Générale and Crédit Agricole. Business France also looked to strengthen its regional partnerships in 2016 by signing a cooperation agreement in September with France’s regions, enabling them to work more closely with the agency’s various business lines and global network. “These excellent results for 2016 are an endorsement of how Business France has been set up to operate. After an excellent start in 2015, we have now built upon our early success. For this, we can thank the unstinting commitment, expertise and capabilities of our 1,500 personnel, who hail from 65 different countries and together provide active support to help businesses succeed, whether this be in export markets or by investing in France. The coming year will see an even greater impact, as we work increasingly closely with public- and private-sector partners, especially in France’s regions,” said Muriel Pénicaud, CEO of Business France and Ambassador for International Investment. Business France  is the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, responsible for fostering export growth by French businesses, as well as promoting and facilitating international investment in France. It promotes France’s companies, business image and nationwide attractiveness as an investment location, and also runs the VIE international internship program.

Fitting out cabins, a major industrial challenge for French companies

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 02-mars-2017 12:35:58
The fitting out of aircraft interiors is a growing sector. Forecasts predict that the market will increase from $16.8bn (around £13.4bn) in 2016 to more than $29bn (around £23bn) in 2021, with an average annual growth rate of around 11%. This growth is boosted by increases in air traffic and record orders in recent years. Nearly 30,000 new commercial aircraft will have to be fitted out over the next 20 years. The market also includes retrofitting that, given the typical service life of aircraft ranging from 5 to 15 years, consists of refitting the cabin two or three times in an aircraft’s lifetime. The IFEC segment (In-Flight Entertainment & Connectivity) is not to be outdone, since it is expected to reach $5.8bn (£4.65bn) by 2020. Demand comes mainly from: - North America, the leading global aeronautic market - Asia-Pacific, which is seeing its fleets increased by a many large orders. Challenges and solutions Passenger seating and on-board comfort are the focus of attention for airline companies, who must differentiate themselves in a highly competitive market. Optimum use of volumes and reducing the weight of fittings also form part of the challenge of reducing aircraft fuel consumption. Faced with these challenges, many French companies are developing new products and solutions, including: - To resolve the balance between making the aircraft lighter and passenger comfort, companies are working with innovative materials (composites, titanium, etc.), notably for the framework and covering of seats. - On-board service is also receiving a great deal of attention. In the front line: manufacturers of equipment for crew members, such as trolleys or galleys. The challenge lies in using lightweight materials but also in customisation through the development of modular systems. - On-board comfort also involves the cabin insulation and acoustics. Solutions have been developed to reduce noise and vibrations. - On-board entertainment has also seen in fundamental developments. Screens have got bigger, systems use less power, but it is especially the entertainment systems that have undergone the greatest changes, offering more possibilities to passengers than ever before. - Significant attention is also given to fixtures and fittings for Business and First Class cabins. The design of these cabins and their fittings (seats, use of high quality materials, etc.) is part of French expertise. Innovation, Customisation and Utility In summary, whether in design, equipment, on-board entertainment systems or maintenance, to mention only a few flourishing sectors, the three keywords for French businesses in the aircraft interiors industry are: - Innovation : particularly in terms of the materials used, the major challenge being to make aircraft lighter. - Customisation : the solutions on offer, both in terms of comfort and in design or entertainment, make it possible to meet the needs of airlines whilst differentiating themselves from their competitors. - Utility : adaptable and modular systems enabling rapid installation or reorganization and optimum use of volumes. Exhibiting together on 2 pavilions, in Hall B6 (stands 6C51, 6C61, 6C50, 6C60, 6C70 and 6D70) and in Hall B3 (stand 3C40) dedicated to IFEs, the French exhibitors represent the expertise and sheer variety and of companies in the sector.
