The three-day Yarn Expo Autumn ended on October 13 in Shanghai with its huge display of the latest industry trends from 13 countries and regions. The Yarn Expo has been growing in popularity every year, with the number of exhibitors increasing to around 493 this edition, up from 319 last year and the exhibition space expanding by 115 per cent.

The expanded exhibition space allowed suppliers to showcase more of their products to visitors. “Given the reputation of Yarn Expo as the best trade platform in the Asian region, suppliers were keen on joining to meet their potential customers here,” senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Wendy Wen said. Suppliers from 13 countries and regions including Bangladesh, Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam participated in this year’s autumn edition.

Held in one of Asia’s major transport hubs, Yarn Expo gathered leading yarn and fibre suppliers from throughout the region. This year, the India Pavilion was once again a highlight of the fair, bringing around 40 of the leading Indian names to Shanghai. In addition, Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) as an international organisation which promotes sustainable cotton production, joined the fair for the first time with five spinners demonstrating their cotton yarn made from eco-friendly cotton.

Another show highlight included the returning Birla Planet Pavilion. Birla Group benefited from its participation in the previous Yarn Expo where it succeeded in increasing its brand awareness in China. This edition, they formed the pavilion with 16 companies to present a wide range of products, including Birla Modal and Birla Spunshades. The world’s largest rayon spun yarn producer, PT Elegant Textile Industry also joined as one of their important members.

Exhibitors from Uzbekistan and Pakistan returned to the fair to cater to the growing demand for their high quality and competitive cotton yarn. Rubberflex Sdn Bhd from Malaysia, the world’s largest manufacturer of advanced latex threads, one of the newcomers, showcased their renowned products with features of heat-resistance, high elasticity and durability. Further, Indonesian companies showed much enthusiasm towards the fair that more of them choose to participate in this week’s Yarn Expo Autumn.

In order to stand out from the competition, domestic yarn and fibre suppliers worked hard to upgrade their products, and caught the eyeballs of visitors from around the world. Buyers were able to see latest innovative products from five highlighted display zones including Fancy Yarn Zone, Natural Cotton Yarn Zone, Colourful Chemical Zone, Quality Wool Zone and Green Linen Zone. Amongst the five highlighted zones, the Fancy Yarn Zone, which places an emphasis on innovation, doubled in size and accommodated around 50 companies this year. (SV)
