Around 500 exhibitors are expected to take part in the Cinte Techtextil China trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens that will be taking place from 24-26 September at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

This year marks a change from the last fair held in 2012, with the show no longer held concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics.

According to Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of fair co-organiser Messe Frankfurt (HK), this stand-alone version will be more beneficial for participants. “Holding the fair independently from Intertextile ensures the visitor profile will be more specific to the industry,” she said. “This gives overseas companies greater opportunity to promote their products and enhance their brands in the fast-growing Asian market.”

Growing potential

This expanding market is providing a range of new opportunities for overseas firms to tap into. Industrial protective equipment is just one of these, as countries in the region, in particular China and India, still have large numbers of unprotected industrial workers.

Concordia Textiles is one exhibitor that sees this potential in the region in the near future. “More awareness of protecting workers will enlarge the demand for protective work wear that meets specific quality standards,” explained Dirk De Locht from Concordia. The Belgium company will showcase their European- and Chinese-made fabrics for heavy-duty work wear, waterproof and breathable, and heat and flame protective garments at the fair.

German firm PHP Fibers, producers of industrial filament yarns and exhibiting for the fifth time, see the same potential. “We are already selling to China and Korea, but we see potential for growth due to the increasing demand for cars in Asia and the resulting boost in production in the region,” outlined Guangze Song from PHP’s Shanghai office.

Leading companies to take part

Companies from the full industry spectrum will be at the fair, with product groups and application areas including technology and machinery, woven and knitted fabrics, nonwovens, coated textiles, composites, surface and bonding techniques, fibres and yarns, and more on display.

The Santex Group from Switzerland is one of the exhibitors and has more than 30 years of experience producing textile finishing machines, laminating and coating plants, and prepreg lines.

French exhibitor Protechnic is a regular attendant of Techtextil fairs and produces hot-melt thermo-adhesive webs, nets and films for dry lamination. The company sells to more than 50 countries across the globe and makes products for industries as diverse as automotive, aviation, building, renewable energy and sports.
