Techtextil Russia gains prominence

Techtextil Russia, an international trade fair for technical textiles, nonwovens and protective clothing, which will take place from 20-23 March 2018 in Moscow, is expected to become one of the year’s biggest highlights in Russia and Eastern Europe, organisers report. The Russian technical textiles industry is now experiencing strong development, which is reflected by a significant increase of projects financing and support of large-scale investors, both foreign and domestic.

Technical textiles and equipment for its production remain the major factor in the development of the Russian textiles industry. Last year has been marked by some crucial positive impacts on the Russian market, i.e. textiles industry was getting governmental support, at both regional and federal levels, innovative materials were developed and improved, a number of new plants were launched.

In addition, the output of fabrics with PVC coating increased by 19.6%. “All these factors once again confirm the necessity and significance of holding such event as Techtextil Russia on an annual basis,” organisers explain.
