Showcasing nonwovens at Cinte Techtextil China 2022

Cinte Techtextil China 2022, the trade fair for technical textile and nonwoven products, will be held September 6 – 8, 2022, in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

Nonwovens has been one of the most demanded products in the textile industry in recent years. According to a China customs report, China’s textile and apparel exports from January to November 2021 were USD 285.29 billion, a year-on-year increase of 7.7 %. Compared to the same period in 2019, the export of nonwovens surgical masks, PPE gown and nonwoven fabrics increased by 149 %, 185.9 % and 50.2 % respectively.

Ever since the exponential growth of global demand for PPE such as surgical caps, gowns, masks, drapes, bed linen and gloves in 2019, the nonwovens market is anticipated to grow steadily with an anticipated global market size of USD 39.23 billion by 2028.

With the gradually normalising market for the medical nonwovens sector, prominent players in the industry are expanding their reach with application-specified products and rising innovation in the manufacture of hygiene products that aid in discomfort, contamination, and odour control by microbial activity. Another key trend to look out for from 2021 to 2028 which is anticipated to drive the growth of the nonwovens sector is spunbond nonwoven fabrics, which accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020.

European Zone: a platform full of business opportunities

The European Union has been one of the most important trading partners for China. According to the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China, the country’s total imports from the EU in 2021 increased 19.9 % year-on-year to USD 310 billion, with machinery, chemicals and more being some of the major imports. In wake of strong Chinese recovery from the pandemic, the demands for advanced offerings of European suppliers have never been greater, and the technical textiles and nonwovens sectors are no exception.

Cinte Techtextil China 2022 will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 6 – 8 September 2022. As a comprehensive trade fair with renowned internationalism, the fair offers a European Zone with premium booth location for overseas exhibitors to explore the vibrant Chinese market. It is an ideal business platform for European suppliers to showcase their expertise in productivity, proficiency and efficiency in textile production that can respond to the huge demand from the Chinese market for quality products.
