The China International Trenchless Technology Conference and Exhibition is presenting the vigorous vitality and development potential of China's trenchless industry with an unexpectedly large scale and rich cutting-edge technology. As the results of the epidemic prevention work are reflected, China's economy is on the road to recovery, faster than other countries in the world. The feedback from exhibitors and visitors reflects the growing demand for trenchless technology in the development of China's national economy. The active participation of foreign experts and reporters shows that international counterparts are paying attention to the continuous expansion of China's trenchless market. Driven by favorable domestic policies, the sustainable improvement of national sewage treatment plants, the quality and efficiency improvement of the pipeline network, and the repair of the pipeline network have been carried out in parallel. Facing the huge market of urban pipe network maintenance and repair, municipal enterprises or emerging enterprises have joined the trenchless industry one after another, and the number of exhibitors in the pipeline inspection and repair category has increased sharply.
