Desk Report: As the leading industry event in the continent Asia, Yarn Expo continued, as always it used to be, its evolution into the industry’s most comprehensive and effective business platform with its Spring Edition which concluded couple of days ago with a large increase in the buyer figure by 15%, as well as another year of growth in the exhibitor number. Strong demand was evident for recent growth areas of the fair such as synthetic, fancy and specialty yarns as well as chemical fibres, while exhibitors in the more traditional cotton product group also fared well. In total, 435 exhibitors from 10 countries & regions took part attracting 25,966 trade buyers from 88 countries & regions.

The Yarn Expo Spring 2018 has taken place together with the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, the Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, the clothing fair Chic and the knitting fair PH Value from 14 to 16 March 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai and is organized by Messe Frankfurt and Textilverband CCPIT

“Once again, Yarn Expo proved itself as the ideal trade fair for the industry to benefit from changing demands and product trends, especially in the Chinese and wider Asian markets,” Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained.

“The fair has evolved in recent editions to have a much bigger focus on synthetic, fancy & specialty yarns and chemical fibres, and based on the exhibitor feedback during the fair, there was an increase in buyers sourcing these products this year. What’s more, local buyers were showing strong interest in the offerings from Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Thailand, while Vietnamese cotton exhibitors reported increased orders from China due to the favourable trade policies between these countries” she added.
