The worldwide textile machinery development in the past and present
At the ITMF 2013 Annual Conference (September 8-10) in Bregenz, Austria, the ITMF Director General, Dr. Christian Schindler presented the latest data on the worldwide textile machinery development in the first half of 2013, including a comparison in view to the period of 2007 – 2012. TextileFuture is presenting these latest figures to its readers
The import/export trade of the most important and other countries from 2007 to the first half of 2013 can be taken from Table 1
As we all know, China plays an important part in the textile machinery world in imports and exports and the development over the same period can be had from Table 2
Let’s now taking a closer look to the most important textile machinery manufacture countries: The first focus is put on the import/ export situation of Germany to be had from Table 3
The second focus is put on the textile machinery trade situation of Japan in Table 4
The third focus is dedicated to the textile machinery trade in Turkey illustrated in Table 5
As we are well aware, also Italy is playing an important role in textile machinery trade and this can be had from Table 6
Table 7 will give you details on the worldwide textile machinery trade in value terms
Finally we would like also to recall the development of textiles and clothing exports 2000 – 2011 in value terms. These can be had from Table 8
ITMF’s Dr. Christian Schindler indicated further details on the development of the textile machinery business.
In an overview of delivered short staple Spindles between 2002 and 2012, we note that the uptrend was broken in 2012 by a decrease of 27 % and China’s share dropped 28 %. In 2012 there were 10.51 spindles shipped worldwide, thereof 9.91 million spindles went to Asia and thereof 6.39 spindles went to China, 1.97 million to India, 0.59 million to Indonesia , 0.44 million to Turkey and 0.23 million to Bangladesh.
A comparison of shipped short staple spindles to China and India 2002 – 2012 can be had from Table 9
Very interesting is also the shipping of these spindles to Europe (including Turkey) during the same period. This can be had from Table 10
Now let’s turn to the worldwide shipped OE Rotors from 2002 – 2012, the declined in 2012 21 %, in China they dropped 6.2 %in 2012 and China’s share was 81 % or 364000 of total worldwide shipments of 451200.
The largest investors in this sector were after China India with 19400, Turkey 17500, Brazil 11100 and Uzbekistan 8900 in 2012.
The OE rotor shipments to Europe (including Turkey) can be taken from Table 11
Now we would like to throw some light on the world spinning capacity and yarn production in the same period of time and this can be had from Table 12
Table 13 gives a comparison between China and India
The shipped worldwide texturing spindles 2002 – 2012 have declined in 2012 13 % to 718000 spindles and China’s share was 68 % or 490000 spindles and it dropped 22 %.
The largest investors after China were India with 44400 texturing spindles, Japan and Thailand each 36500, and Turkey 17000.
We turn now to the weaving sector and show the development of shipped shuttle less looms 2002 – 2012. In 2012 these declined 44 % to 86500 looms. China’s share was 93 % and declined 33 % to 80600 looms. The development of the Rapier/Projectile, Air Jet and Water Jet shipments from 2002 – 2012 can be had from Table 14
Worldwide Water jet looms shipped declined in 2012 63 % to 39900. The biggest investors after China (58886) were India 10198 water jet looms, Indonesia 3727 Korea 1347 and Vietnam 1188.
Table 15 shows the shipped shuttle less looms to Europe, including Turkey, 2002 – 2012
The overview of shipped Circular knitting machines between 2002 – 2012 shows that these dropped 27 % in 2012 to 36642. Details are shown in Table 16
China’s share in this sector increased 33 % in 2012 and amounted to 28281 machines, thus a share of 77%. The development 2002 – 2012 can be had from Table 17
The largest investors after China was Indonesia (1343) India (1196), Bangladesh (735) and Brazil (409).
Circular Knitting Machine development 2002 – 2012 to Europe (including Turkey) can be had from Table 18
Worldwide shipped electronic flat knitting machines dropped 2012 34 % to 46105. China’s share of 80 % (33044) declined 40 %. Behind China we find 2012 as largest investors Bangladesh (4362), Turkey 2661), Hong Kong (1090) and Italy (826).
The overview of shipped electronic knitting machines 2002 – 2012 to Europe (including Turkey) can be had from Table 19
The shipped finishing machinery (woven continued) 2008 – 2012 can be had from Table 20
The shipped finishing machinery (knits continued) 2008 – 2012 is shown in Table 21
Finally we would like to show you the development of short staple spindles 1974 – 2012 Dr. Schindler presented also in Table 22
And the same focus on the shipments of shuttle less looms can be had from Table 23
