The 18th edition of ITMA, the global textile machinery tradefair which has just concluded in Barcelona, Spain, has proven to be a great success for Italian textile machinery manufacturers. ITMA 2019 has closed with some positive figures. Overall, the halls that held 1717 exhibitors saw passage of 105,000 visitors from 137 countries over the show’s seven days.

“A great many satisfied exhibitors and visitors, which is a clear sign of optimism for Italy’s textile machinery sector,” said ACIMIT president Alessandro Zucchi in a press release.

Italy confirmed its leadership position as the country with the most exhibitors (364), coming in second in terms of the number of visitors (10 per cent of the total attendance figures), just behind Spain. The main visitor countries also included India (8 per cent), Turkey and Germany (7 per cent).

“ITMA remains a must-see event for the industry, and the primary global stage at which to show new developments in technology,” said Alessandro Zucchi, president of ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers. “As far as our own country is concerned, the number of Italian exhibitors and visitors bears witness to the vitality of our textile industry. The visibility of Italy’s contingent and presence is the result of the profound commitment, including in economic terms, made by our businesses, along with indispensable support in the realisation of significant promotional initiatives for ITMA carried out by the Italian ministry of economic development and the Italian trade agency.”

Solutions for increasingly eco-sustainable textile processes were being proposed by the majority of exhibitors. Here too, Italy proved to be top of its class, with a product offering that provides savings in water, energy and raw materials. Sustainability was also the main focus at the ACIMIT press conference, at which the ACIMIT Green Label Awards were assigned to two Italian machinery manufacturers, Tonello Srl and Loptex Srl, who have stood out for their outstanding commitment among ACIMIT’s associated members, in reducing the quantity of equivalent emissions of carbon dioxide produced during the operation of their machinery over the last few years.

Italian companies have also been major players in the wide scale modernisation project of the textile industry in Egypt, presented at ITMA by representatives of the Egyptian government. Projected investments between 2019 and 2021 will amount to €1 billion, with the first phase including machinery by some notable Italian machinery manufacturers: EFI Reggiani, ITEMA, Marzoli and Savio.

“The many innovations we’ve seen in Barcelona, both in the areas of sustainability and digitalisation certainly enhanced the interest of countless visitors. I believe that for a great many machinery manufacturers, the combination of sustainability and innovation will once again represent the key to success at the next edition of ITMA, slated to be held in Milan from June 8-14, 2023,” concluded Zucchi.
