The recently concluded Yarn Expo Autumn fair set new records this year for both exhibitors and visitors.

Nearly 150 suppliers from 13 countries and regions took part, including Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Singapore and Thailand, and new countries Italy, Korea, Lithuania, Sri Lanka and Turkey. This marked a 50% increase compared to 2012. On the visitor side, 6,015 buyers from 63 countries and regions attended – a 25% increase on last year.

“The increase in both exhibitor and visitor numbers confirms that not only is the regional fibre and yarn industry in good shape, but also that this fair is the best platform to take advantage of the growing potential in Asia, and in particular, in the domestic Chinese market,” commented Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager for fair co-organiser Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

“The increased presence from Indian and Pakistani exhibitors was noticeable, but it was also pleasing that five new countries were represented this year as well. This is something we expect to continue in the future.”

Exhibitors at the fair were satisfied with the range of buyers that were present. “No doubt this is a good show; we have met buyers from China as well as Bangladesh, Japan, Korea, Italy, Germany and Turkey,” explained Asjad Khan, Master Textile Mills, Pakistan. This year’s Pakistan Zone featured 21 exhibitors, including yarn producers, Indus Dyeing & Manufacturing who were pleased with the buyer range.

“Siro yarn is popular and also spandex, bamboo and melange at the show. We have had a lot of buyers from China, but also some from Turkey, Japan, Korea and Portugal,” said S. Abedin Ahmed Rizvi. “We are already selling a lot to China, but we can reach new buyers at this show, as well as introduce our new products to existing customers.”

The Indian Pavilion contained over 50 exhibitors this year with a range of products on offer including 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. According to K. Raju, the Regional Officer at pavilion organiser Texprocil, the overall feeling among participants was positive.

“The response here has been good, and our members have been very busy these past few days,” he said. “This show is a good opportunity to explore the Chinese market, especially as trade between China and India is growing.” N.V.N. Sudheer from Sri Nrkr Textiles agreed.

“This is an important trade fair to reach the Chinese market. But you can meet with buyers from all around the world here as well – this time we’ve had visitors from Japan, Korea and Taiwan too.” Kikani Exports’ K. Ravi had a similar sentiment. “Yarn Expo is an ideal place to meet our existing customers and also new ones. This year we have met with buyers from Belgium, Russia, China, Egypt and Korea.”
