Yarn Expo Spring 2015, which wrapped up on March 20 witnessed a 3 per cent hike in visitor numbers from the previous year’s edition, who came from over 46 countries and totaled to 21,000 in number.

The three-day event, which commenced on March 18 in the National Exhibition and Convention Center, was the second edition in Shanghai after it relocated from Beijing in 2014.

The fair displayed a variety of natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax / regenerated flax, and man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty products including elastic, and fancy and blended yarns.

“We are very happy to see the growth momentum after we achieved a significant jump of over 200 per cent last year when we first came to Shanghai,” said Wendy Wen, senior GM at Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

“Altogether 238 exhibitors from 15 countries and regions participated in the fair, while the popular Indian Pavilion and Pakistani zone returned once again,” Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.

“Our members were all happy as we could make business contacts with not only Chinese customers, but also with those from the Middle East,” said Ravindranathan Narayanasamy, Joint Director at TEXPROCIL.

“This year, around 30 per cent of the total visitors that came to our booths at the India Pavilion were from overseas, and the rest were from Mainland China,” he added.

Indonesian exhibitors also agreed that this fair was a stepping stone for them to open up the global market.

“This fair is important to us as we can meet with customers from around the world and we are happy with the response,” said Anupam Agrawal, Director, Spun Yarn Business at PT Indorama Synthetics Tbk.

Lahoti Overseas Ltd was one of the exhibitors under the Indian Pavilion that benefited from the enhanced visitor flow.

“Our main purpose is to meet new customers here and we are satisfied with the results. Currently we are exporting 2,000 tons of cotton yarn to China per month and seek to increase it to 3,000 tons,” said Vijay Nate, vice president at Lahoti.

“We met some very serious buyers from Finland who seemed interested in our products and they are looking at placing large-quantity orders,” Henry Yang from Lih Shyang Industrial Co Ltd in Taiwan said.

“Other than a trade platform that brings the whole industry under one roof, the fair never ceases to impress buyers with the latest product trends, such as Chinese made synthetic fibres,” Messe Frankfurt added.

With an expertise in producing synthetic fibres, the Chinese Pavilion became a popular spot for overseas buyers and Richardo Barboss from Portugal was one of them.

He said, “I am mainly looking for Chinese products as they have higher quality and especially specialty fibres like flame retardant fibres which can be used in home textile, sportswear and automobile sectors.”

Cotton yarn buyers were happy to see wide selection of Indian and Pakistani premium products, so while synthetic yarns was the rising star; cotton yarns still remained attractive to some buyers. (AR)
