For the Italian textile machinery industry the Techtextil North America will be another opportunity to show their latest technologies for the technical and innovative textiles sector to potential customers. According to ACIMIT the US market for specialty fabrics and technical textiles registered a recovery in 2011 and the projections for 2012 are quite positive which is encouraging for the machine manufacturers.

CIMIT says that Italian exports to the US market also testify to the will of American textile producers to invest in new equipment. In 2011 Italian sales of textile machinery reached a value of Euros 68 million (US$49 million), an 84% on 2010.

In 2011 the most relevant share of Italian machines exported to US market was for accessories (33%), followed by spinning machinery (20%) and finishing (20%).

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 companies, employing close to 13,000 people, and producing machinery to an overall value of approximately Euros 2.7 billion, with exports amounting to 80% of total sales. The quality of Italian textile technology is evidenced by the high number of countries in which Italian machinery is sold - around 130 countries worldwide.

“Creativity, technology, reliability and quality are the characteristics which have made Italy a global leader in the manufacturing of textile machinery.
