The Yarn Expo, a leading exhibition for fibres and yarns, continues to be the industry’s most comprehensive and effective business platform for natural and manmade fibres and yarns and other specialty products. The spring edition, held from March 14 to 16 in the Chinese city of Shanghai, recorded an increase of 15 per cent buyers this year.

There was a strong demand in recent growth areas such as synthetic, fancy, and specialty yarns as well as chemical fibres, while exhibitors in the more traditional cotton product group also fared well. In total, 435 exhibitors from 10 countries and regions took part (2017: 393, 12 countries and regions), attracting 25,966 trade buyers from 88 countries and regions (2017: 22,579, 94 countries and regions).

Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said, “Once again, Yarn Expo proved itself as the ideal trade fair for the industry to benefit from changing demands and product trends, especially in the Chinese and wider Asian markets. The fair has evolved in recent editions to have a much larger focus on synthetic, fancy, specialty yarns and chemical fibres, and based on the exhibitor feedback from the fair, there was an increase in buyers sourcing these products this year. What’s more, local buyers showed interest in the offerings from Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Thailand, while Vietnamese cotton exhibitors reported increased orders from China due to the favourable trade policies between these countries.”

Among others, Birla Jingwei Fibres had a successful event.

Birla Jingwei Fibres senior vice-president Sachin Malik said, “Yarn Expo is a very important platform for Birla, to be visible to our value chain, to connect with our customers, and our own clients’ customers. We value Yarn Expo as a long-term partner for showcasing our products and connecting with the value chain. Each edition, we connect with more buyers, and more customers in the industry recognise the importance of this fair. It has developed into a premium event in the global textiles industry calendar. Usually, this edition is more quiet than the autumn fair, but the results this year saw the spring edition reach the same level. Our booth was constantly packed with buyers, and we also received more high-quality and international buyers.” (GK)
