A large factor in the growth this year is the increased participation from South Asia. The India Pavilion plays host to over 50 exhibitors who will display the latest dyed and fancy cotton yarns and natural fibres, varieties of single, twisted, compact, gassed, mercerised and crepe yarns for knitwear and weaving, as well as 100% cotton and linen yarns.
The strong presence of Indian exhibitors again this year proves the continual growing business opportunities in the Chinese market, the Joint Director at pavilion organiser Texprocil, Ravi Narayanaswamy believes. “There is a large gap between the supply and demand of yarn in China at the moment,” he says. “What’s more, in recent years the awareness of the high quality of Indian yarn has increased in China so many exhibitors are returning to the fair again to take advantage of these factors.”
The Pakistan Zone is also larger with 21 manufacturers offering competitively priced cotton yarns, more than triple compared with last year. “The exhibitor growth from both of these countries confirms the status of this fair as the best platform for gaining access to the Chinese market,” said Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “It also shows that despite the recent economic slowdown overseas suppliers are optimistic and feel there is still room for growth in this market.”
Industry-leading domestic suppliers to feature
In addition to the increased international presence, a number of leading Chinese suppliers will also take part to increase trading opportunities which include Fulida Group Hangzhou, one of China’s top 500 private companies. They produce cotton, chemical fibres, differentiated chemical fibre blended yarns, viscose staple fibres, dyed polyester filament and more. Shanghai Tenbro Bamboo Textile were one of the first producers of bamboo fibre in China, and also supply bamboo pulp and siro yarn. And Shandong Helon are specialists in viscose fibres and tyre cord fabrics.
Key domestic yarn suppliers include China Resources Textile and Changtai Xindeli Textiles Development. The former produces high-count yarn, knitting yarn, twisted yarn and other varities, while the later is a supplier of twisted yarn that is free of knots, is heat-set and is suitable for warping.
Three other events will take place concurrently with Yarn Expo Autumn, thus creating synergy effects for buyers. This includes Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics 2013 which is located in halls E1 – E7, N1 – N3 and W1 – W5, as well as the PH Value fair (previously known as the China International Knitting Trade Fair) in halls N4 – N5. On 22 October the Planet Textiles Conference will be held in the Kerry Hotel, which is located alongside the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
Yarn Expo Autumn is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; The Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; China Cotton Textile Association; China Wool Textile Association; China Chemical Fiber Association; China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association; and China Textile Information Centre.
