Cinte Techtextil China 2016 opens next week

Cinte Techtextil China will open its doors next week, with the most diverse exhibitor line-up ever awaiting trade buyers at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The exhibition will welcome 480 suppliers from 26 countries and regions, who will highlight their products from 12 – 14 October, making this edition the most international to date, according to organisers.

“The internationalism here this year is due in part to the continuing strength of the Chinese technical textiles and nonwovens market, while this potential is also drawing some of the biggest domestic names to exhibit here as well,” commented Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “While other sectors of the textile industry in China are in a more mature stage of their development, the technical textiles sector is still developing and expanding rapidly, with growth of 10.9% recorded in the first half of this year.”

Responding to these opportunities in the domestic market, a wide range of international exhibitors will take part in the event this year, including pavilions from Belgium, Germany, Italy and Taiwan, a new Korean Pavilion, as well as the returning European Zone. Individual exhibitors from a further 19 countries also participate, including representation from Denmark, Japan, Poland and Sweden for the first time. Domestic pavilions include those led by Shangtex Holding featuring woven fabrics, laid webs and knitting fabrics; China Hi-Tech Group Corp which will display fibres and machinery; and the Beijing Guanghua Textile Group pavilion with a range of technical textile products.

European Zone

With increased internationalism this year and 12 product application areas covered, the product diversity at the fair is the highest it has ever been, organisers reports. Adding to this, some of the industry’s biggest names will feature at this edition.

In the Germany Pavilion, Trützschler Nonwovens, Dilo Systems and Autefa Solutions take part, with Europlasma, Plastibert, CTF 2000 and Bekintex NV (Bekaert) participating in the Belgium Pavilion. The Italy Pavilion houses Finelvo and the Fil Man Made Group amongst others. The European Zone will feature exhibitors from 11 countries, including Reliant Machinery, Stahl Holdings, SKS, Concordia Textiles and many others.

Asian pavilions

The two Asian pavilions from Korea and Taiwan boast some of the region’s most innovative suppliers, with the Korea Textile Trade Association explaining their pavilion will contain a number of special textiles integrated with ICT elements this year.

China will be well represented by exhibitors from across the industry, in particular by nonwovens suppliers given their strength in this sector. Beautiful Nonwoven has the second largest nonwovens production capacity in China, while Hismer Bio-Technology and Zhejiang Kingsafe Nonwoven Fabric are other notable exhibitors in this category.

Individual exhibitors

Apart from the big-name exhibitors in the pavilions, the individual exhibitors also offer quality sourcing options. Groz-Beckert will feature felting and structuring needles, as well as jet strips for the nonwovens industry.
