Growing importance of China’s knitting sector

China’s Yiwu International Exhibition on Hosiery, Knitting, Dyeing And Finishing Machinery (Yiwu Knitting) will now run concurrently with Zhejiang Government’s Yiwu International Manufacturing Equipment Expo starting this year, as China’s knitting sector continues to grow in importance.

The event will take place from 19-22 November this year at Yiwu International Expo Centre, together with the third Yiwu International Exhibition on Automatic Garment Machinery and Sewing Equipment (Yiwu Sewing), which organisers say will bring ‘a variety of thematic zones and experiences to  visitors’.

Importance of knitting sector

Knitted garments play an important role in fashion industry in China and have become hot property with both the public and the fashion industry. With the rapid development of China’s clothing industry, changes in consumption behaviour, improvements in living standards, and the continuous enhancement of knitting and dyeing and finishing technology and diversified applications in raw materials, the knitted garments industry has entered what organisers refer to as a ‘high-end development stage’.

China’s Yiwu International Exhibition on Hosiery, Knitting, Dyeing And Finishing Machinery (Yiwu Knitting) will now run concurrently with Zhejiang Government’s Yiwu International Manufacturing Equipment Expo starting this year, as China’s knitting sector continues to grow in importance.

Statistics show that over 40% of knitted garments produced in China are exported every year. In January - October 2012, Yiwu's exports of garments and accessories were valued at USD 1.83 billion, while there was only 30.1% of the total value of exports for the same period last year. Organisers say that the above data shows that knitted garments have not only become an important part of modern clothing, but have also taken an important position in fashion design, research and development and production.
