ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 opens with record exhibitors
21
Oct '16
The fifth ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016 exhibition opened today in Shanghai, China, marking a new milestone as the largest show in the series since its inception. A total of 1,673 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies are showcasing a wide array of machinery and solutions to an expected visitorship of around 100,000 during the five-day exhibition.

The combined exhibition is spread over 170,000 square metres of space—12 per cent larger than the last edition. It is the biggest showing since the first edition. This makes the combined exhibition the most important textile machinery show in Asia in terms of exhibiting space and technology.

“We are delighted with the response to our exhibition. Despite the current sluggish economic climate, there is a great need for an industry-leading platform in Asia where established textile machinery manufacturers can showcase their products and services and connect with their customers,” said the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (Cematex) president Fritz Mayer.

Wang Shutian, president of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), agreed: “The combined show is an excellent platform to reach Asian buyers. The overwhelming response is also partly due to the Chinese government's call to embrace automation which will help the industry improve the quality of textiles and cost-effectiveness.

“Even though economic conditions may be difficult at the moment, textile makers recognise that it is even more critical for them to invest in better technological solutions and to upgrade their facilities.”

In terms of exhibit space, Chinese participants are occupying 69.4 per cent of the exhibition space. This is followed by Germany with 6.5 per cent, Italy – 5.5 per cent, Japan – 4.7 per cent and Switzerland – 3.2 per cent.

By product categories, spinning is the largest sector, occupying 30 per cent of the total exhibit space. Dyeing, finishing and printing machinery form the next biggest group at 27 per cent, followed by knitting and weaving at 17 per cent.

ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 is jointly owned by Cematex and its partners in China – the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), CTMA, and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC). (RKS)
