The French pavilion organized by Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, will play host to 21 exhibitors at Oceanology International 2018 in London on stands J200, K200 and K300, in partnership with Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and Pôle Mer Méditerranée.
The maritime industry is the world's second largest economic sector, currently worth $1.5 trillion to the global economy, a figure that is set to rise to $3 trillion in 2030 (OECD). Alongside more traditional sectors, new industrial sub-sectors will emerge over the coming decades. They will chiefly revolve around the technologies required to exploit resources, as well as activity monitoring at sea and maritime security of the areas in which they take place. France has a strong hand to play when it comes to capturing a significant share of these expanding markets.
The French companies in attendance at Oceanology are firmly positioned in these traditional industrial sectors, continually innovating to remain competitive on the global markets.
The seas and oceans are at the crossroads of every economic sector and are thus a key area of development. The sea meets many needs of both humanity and our societies' lifestyles: food, the energy transition, health, minerals, transport and leisure.
The development of maritime activities will also create new economic segments along our coastlines, which, along with growing coastal population densities, will translate into a new approach to coastal management and the interfaces between land and sea, one that will drive new areas of activity (floating port infrastructures, water production and treatment, etc.).
Oceanology International is the only event in Europe devoted to marine resource exploitation and its various sub-sectors. The French exhibitors are keen to meet key decision makers, seek out partners and showcase their innovative product and technologies to foreign businesses within the industry.
