Exhibitor registration is open for the China International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, Cinte Techtextil China in Shanghai/China from September 4-6, 2018. Asia’s largest biennial event for the entire technical textiles and nonwovens sector, the fair is held in a region that not only continues to grow strongly but is expected to do so for the foreseeable future, not least due to major government initiatives in China which are injecting billions of dollars of investment into the industry.
The total output of technical textiles and nonwovens products in China is estimated to reach over 22 million tons in 2020, accounting for 30 % of global production, and double that of 2013. In 2016, China’s technical textile exports were worth US$ 23.61 billion. 9 major products surpassed $ 1.5 billion worth of exports each: medical and hygiene textiles, coated textiles, nonwovens, canvas and tarp textiles, ropes, synthetic leather substrates and package textiles.
Growth is especially expected to be seen in the following sectors in the coming 5 years: filtration and separation textiles, medical and hygiene textiles, geotechnical textiles, structural reinforcement textiles, transportation textiles, protective textiles.
