Largest Yarn Expo Autumn ever opens its doors

The long-awaited Yarn Expo Autumn will be held again in Shanghai this week, welcoming thousands of industry players who are looking for quality yarn and fibre products from China, Asia and elsewhere.

The event has been growing in popularity every year, with the number of exhibitors increasing to around 493 this edition, up from 319 last year. The exhibition space will also expand by 115%, allowing suppliers to showcase more of their products to visitors.

“Given the reputation of Yarn Expo as the best trade platform in the Asian region, suppliers are keen on joining to meet their potential customers here,” said Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK).

Suppliers from 13 countries and regions, including Bangladesh, Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam, will participate in this year’s autumn edition.

Foreign yarn suppliers

Being held in one of Asia’s major transport hubs, Yarn Expo gathers leading yarn and fibre suppliers from throughout the region. This year, the India Pavilion is once again a highlight of the fair, bringing around 40 of the leading Indian names to Shanghai. In addition, Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) will join the fair for the first time with five spinners demonstrating its cotton yarn made from eco-friendly cotton.

Another show highlight includes the returning Birla Planet Pavilion. Birla Group benefited from its participation in the previous Yarn Expo where it succeeded in increasing its brand awareness in China. This edition, it will form the pavilion with 16 companies to present a wide range of products, including Birla Modal and Birla Spunshades. The leading rayon spun yarn producer PT Elegant Textile Industry will also join as one of the important members.

Show’s growing influence

In addition to the aforementioned pavilions, Uzbekistan and Pakistan exhibitors will also return to the fair to cater to the growing demand for their high quality and competitive cotton yarn. “What’s more, the positive feedback from existing exhibitors along with the show’s growing influence has further attracted new exhibitors who are interested to develop in the Asian market,” organisers report.

Rubberflex Sdn Bhd, from Malaysia, a manufacturer of advanced latex threads, is one of the newcomers, and it is ready to showcase its renowned products with features of heat-resistance, high elasticity and durability. Indonesian companies are showing much enthusiasm towards the fair. PT Indo-Rama Synthetics Tbk, for instance, will display viscose, polyester spun, melange yarn and other specialty yarns.

Domestic exhibitors

In order to stand out from the competition, domestic yarn and fibre suppliers have been working hard to upgrade their products. Buyers can expect to see their latest innovative products from five highlighted display zones including Fancy Yarn Zone, Natural Cotton Yarn Zone, Colourful Chemical Zone, Quality Wool Zone and Green Linen Zone.

Amongst the five highlighted zones, the Fancy Yarn Zone, which places an emphasis on innovation, will double in size and accommodate around 50 companies this year. Fibre products under the theme of trend, innovation, green and comfort will also be presented by some 200 exhibitors in the Colourful Chemical Zone. Furthermore, there is still a wide range of products such as nylon, viscose filament, renewable and recycled fibres and more for visitors to discover in these zones.
