A large number of knitting and hosiery industry leaders from around the world will exhibit their products at the trade show. Companies like Santoni, Lonati, Busi Giovanni, Shanghai Yusen Trading, Aurora, Rosso, BTSR, Memminger-Iro, Groz-Beckert, Guangzhou Chuyun, Yiwu Xiaolongren, Jiasheng, Wenzhou Ligao and many more will participate in the show.
Under the background of deep-rooted history and the continuous development of local garment industry, knitting and hosiery industry has become a world-renowned flagship industry in Yiwu. As the rapid modernising, textile and apparel manufacturing industries bring huge potential for knitting and hosiery development, new investments in automation and information technology have been made necessary for improving productivity and product quality, informed the organiser in a press release.
Starting in the late 90s, knitting and hosiery is one of the pillar industries in Yiwu, and has now achieved a considerable scale and comprehensive system. Yiwu knitwear market was evolved from a low-end wholesale market, which mainly sold underwear to a scalable business with the continuous upgrade of knitting technology. Integration of production and sale started and products incorporated elements like fashion design, healthcare, fitness and other functions.
The overwhelming trend has enabled knitting production to step out of the traditional process, and combine manufacturing with design to meet growing consumer demands for fashion. In order to consolidate their positions, the local knitting and garment enterprises have developed high value-added industries and armed themselves with professional skills such as product function enhancement, design optimisation, brand building and e-business platform expansion, etc.
When compared with some international brands, Yiwu hosiery still has less premium capacity due to the lack of added value and product innovation. That is why many enterprises have been actively introducing advanced equipment and extending the industrial chain to inject new vitality to local hosiery industry. Some hosiery brands also start to cooperate with excellent designers and increase investment in technological innovation to stay competitive in the ever changing market.
Besides the functional knitting machinery zone, the trade fair will have two more thematic zones – smart apparel machinery zone and digital printing machinery zone. (KD)
