Yarn Expo Spring 2016 gets 23% more exhibitors

Yarn Expo Spring 2016, a trade fair for yarns organised by Messe Frankfurt, reported a rise of 23 per cent to 309 in its total exhibitor number as compared to the total number of exhibitors in the fair in 2015, according to a press statement released by Messe Frankfurt.

There were exhibitors from 11 countries and regions in 2016, and the exhibiting space was also increased by 40 per cent to accommodate the growing number of exhibitors.

The exhibitors reported a large number of orders and inquiries from the visitors, despite a slight fall in the visitor number to 20,527 in 2016 as compared to 20,719 in 2015.

As Asia's most reputable yarn and fibre trade event, Yarn Expo is a key platform for well-known global companies to present their newest products and meet new buyers. This year, Birla Jingwei presented their latest product lines – Birla Modal and Birla Spunshades. Another big-brand exhibitor, PT Indo-Rama also reported positive accomplishments.

There was an expanding presence of Uzbek exhibitors in the fair. While some exhibitors began the fair concerned about decreasing demand in China for overseas yarns, the experiences of many companies in the India Pavilion and Pakistan Zone allayed this.

Commenting on the success of the fair, Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) said, “We are pleased to see more suppliers using Yarn Expo as their preferred platform to access the global yarn market.”

“Not only are the figures pleasing, but the optimistic feedback expressed by exhibitors and buyers demonstrates the positive atmosphere about the future prospects of the industry,” she added.

With respect to the industry trends, the potential held by synthetic fibres at present was verified by the exhibitors at the fair. Knitting yarn was also on track to become one of the most popular products at the fair. (MCJ)
