Cinte Techtextil China - International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens was held on 25-27 September 2002 at Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition Centre.

A record-breaking number of trade visitors counted at Cinte Techtextil China in Shanghai

Exhibitors impressed with quality and professionalism of visitors

The rapid expansion of China's nonwovens and technical textiles industry provided an ideal backdrop for Cinte Techtextil China, which ended a successful three-day run last week with a record-breaking 5,215 trade buyers from 42 countries and regions registered at the door, a huge 95% increase from the last event.

"Everyone is satisfied with the show, with many exhibitors getting more than they expected from their participation which is pleasing to see", said Katy Lam, General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, one of the show's organisers. "The response from exhibitors and visitors reinforces the need for Cinte Techtextil China. It has now proven itself as a platform for manufacturers and end-users of technical textiles and nonwovens in the Asia Pacific region."

Whilst most visitors were from mainland China (4,411), 804 visitors came from overseas, including 239 from Japan, 131 from Korea, 95 from Taiwan, China and 60 from Hong Kong, China. Of the mainland Chinese visitors to the show the majority were from Shanghai (2,361), Jiangsu (630), Zhejiang (607), Guangdong (167) and Beijing (108).

The breakdown according to business nature showed that 29% of visitors were end users, 32% of visitors were from import and export corporations, 20% wholesalers/distributors and 12% were from the academic/research and development field.

"The visitors are of high quality - most of them are managers, planners and designers", said Mr Ma Jing Hua, General Manager of Shandong Kangjie Nonwovens Co Ltd, PR China. "There are also visitors from overseas including the USA, Europe and South East Asia."

The organisers, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, and the China Nonwovens and Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA) were pleased with the confidence shown in the show and in the market, on both the manufacturing and buying sides. With 213 exhibitors, the show was 75% bigger than the last event in 2000. Of particular note was the number of overseas exhibitors (83), which increased by 152%. National pavilions were present from Austria, Belgium, France and Germany.

Talking at the close of the show, Mr Michael Janecke, Director of Techtextil Fairs worldwide for Messe Frankfurt, expressed his pleasure at the outcome of the first event in Shanghai. "I am very happy with the results of the first Cinte Techtextil China in Shanghai, which far exceeded our expectations," he said. "When making the decision with our joint-venture partners two years ago to leave Beijing, it was not just changing the location, it was like starting a new show. After this excellent start we now have established a marketing platform in China which also attracts visitors from across Asia. Those companies who were not here missed a good opportunity to make first contacts in this very prosperous country."

Samples of products ranging from fibres, yarns, hygiene products, protective clothing, medical clothing, shoes, home textiles, rubber rafts, tents and even a space suit for astronauts were seen here and there to tell the broad story of technical textiles.

Special fibres and yarns for technical textiles were also presented - stainless steel, nickel, polyester, polypropylene, nylon 66, silica, glass fibre, glass fabric, microfibre, hollow fibre.

The products displayed by the overseas exhibitors covered a broad range of product groups including wovens and nonwovens, machinery, coated and laminated textiles, composites, fibres and yarns, and research and development. These product groups were spread across the twelve application areas featured at the show - Agrotech, Buildtech, Clothtech, Geotech, Hometech, Indutech, Medtech, Mobiltech, Oekotech, Packtech, Protech and Sporttech.

"Our objective for this fair is to establish business contacts and get to know the trend of the Chinese market", said Mr Alberto Costa, Area Sales Engineer, Isotex SpA, Italy. Eddy Panagiotis Lynas, Sales Manager - Greater China for Picanol of Belgium, agreed. "We wanted to gain exposure for our company in China and to make new business contacts", he said. "The market can be very competitive due to the massive level of production. However China does need more specialised production of technical textiles."

The majority of products displayed by the 131 mainland Chinese exhibitors featured nonwovens, including health and hygiene products, filtration for liquid, oil and gas, protective clothing, medical clothing, wipes, interlinings, insulation material, coated fabrics, home textiles, felting and imitation leather substrates.

On the machinery side, the China Textile Machinery (Group) displayed some Chinese-made machines for the nonwovens industry, including crosslapper, stitchbond, spunbond, waterlaid, needlepunch and winding. Several models showing the whole nonwovens production line were also displayed for discussion purpose. A crosslapper machine born of the joint venture between Erko and Qindao Textile Machinery Works was showcased.

Though Chinese-made nonwoven machines are popular at the factories, foreign-made machines are also in demand for their high quality, especially for the manufacture of products for export. A number of nonwoven producers have installed full foreign machinery lines, some are mixed-matched with locally made with key components comprised of foreign made machines.

Thirty-four German exhibitors from the technical textile industry, the textile machinery sector and the research and development area exhibited technical textiles under the banner of 'High-Tex from Germany'. High-Tex from Germany was organised by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA) and the Association of the German Textile Industry (Gesamttextil).

"The concept of High-Tex from Germany and its connection with
Cinte Techtextil China stands the test in Shanghai following the first presentation in Atlanta in 2000. All High-Tex from Germany exhibitors are very satisfied with their participation", said Dr Wolf-Rudiger Baumann, Director General of Gesamttextil eV, Germany.
