The 5 key topics of bauma 2022 trade fair

Bauma 2022, October 24–30, 2022 | Trade Fair Center Messe München, the 33rd Edition of the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment.
Bauma 2022 trade fair is predicted more than 3,500 exhibitors and nearly 630,000 visitors, bauma has moved the global construction, building materials and mining industries. The interplay of international enterprises, renowned experts and a well-versed audience at Munich’s trade fair center again provided impulses for the future.

What drives the construction, building materials and mining machinery industries? For years, exhibitors and visitors have been finding answers to these questions at bauma 2022 – the world’s leading trade fair. With a view to the future, bauma offers the international industry a common platform for profitable innovations, cross-border exchange and far-reaching perspectives.

Digitalization and sustainability – these will be the driving forces of industries in the future. They are also reflected in the 5 key topics that have been defined for bauma 2022. The momentum generated by them will decisively shape markets, around the world.

The 5 key topics of bauma 2022 trade fair

Overview of the 5 key topics for bauma 2022

Once bauma 2022 is under way focus days within the bauma FORUM will investigate each topic from a range of different perspectives. Industry, researchers and the start-up community will discuss the issues that are moving the industry and will shape the future during fascinating talks, keynote speeches and podium discussions

  • Construction methods and materials of tomorrow

Around the world, the construction machinery industry is tackling the challenges of today. The primary goal is to lower the amount of carbon dioxide released during the production of cement. Demolition materials should be better processed and reused in the future. New materials are also appearing on the scene.

3D printing, modular construction and new materials: The construction machinery industry and the mining industry are developing innovative construction methods and material solutions. Bauma will showcase them for you at bauma 2022 trade fair and beforehand in their bauma TALK 1

  • The way to autonomous machines

The development of autonomous machinery for construction sites and mining operations is taking huge leaps forward, even if there is still a long way to go until full automation is reached. Automating and digitalizing construction processes and machinery will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and ensure productivity in this age of skilled-worker shortages.

Human machine interfaces (HMI), assistant and safety systems, construction site robots and the downsizing trend: There are many milestones that still must be reached on the way to developing autonomous construction machinery and autonomous underground mining equipment. The exhibitors and speakers at bauma 2022 will explore these issues during bauma TALK 2 and during the trade fair itself.

  • Mining – sustainable, efficient, reliable

How can mining profit from its digitalization and automation edge in the future? The mining industry already has a standard that is being used in the manufacturing process: open platform communication – unified architecture, or OPC UA. At the same time, environmental compatibility and recultivation are creating new challenges for the industry.

As the leading platform for the mining industry, bauma 2022 will focus intensely on the questions of the future for the mining industry for you. Live demonstrations will be complemented by the presentation of new research findings. bauma TALK 4 and the focus day in the bauma FORUM will investigate solutions that various actors are developing under the umbrella term “Mining 4.0” to meet this broad array of challenges.

  • Digital construction site

Digital planning and construction processes promise to create increased environmental protection, safety and, not least, cost effectiveness to go along with efficiency. The key pre-condition for these gains is a manufacturer-independent communication standard for machine-to-machine communications (M2M). Data management, BIM, virtual and augmented reality and digital twins are increasingly playing a crucial role in the successful digital work on construction and mining sites.

At bauma 2022, you will be able to see real-life examples, attend a thematic day at the bauma FORUM and view the presentation of the latest developments discussed previously at bauma TALK 3.

  • The way to Zero Emission

One goal for everyone – reducing greenhouse-gas emissions in the construction and construction machinery industry to zero. Driving and working with hybrid and all-electric vehicles and construction machinery are two of the high-potential ways to cut emissions in the construction business. This is also the case with the development of CO2-reduced construction materials.

Speakers and discussion groups will delve into the vision of “zero emissions” during bauma 2022, in the bauma FORUM and during bauma TALK 5, and examine the road that leads to this destination.
