Over 200 exhibitors with a wide range of products including bedding and towelling, carpets and rugs, table and kitchen linen, machinery and technology, and design and styling will gather in China to participate in the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles during March 14-16, 2018. The event will give a boost to China’s home textile market.
The three-day show allows industry players to get a head start during China’s peak home textiles finished products sourcing season, which is growing strongly. Contributing to over half of the sales of home textiles, the bedding products market in China grew 52.5 per cent from 2011 to 2016, reaching $18.3 billion. Since the market is expected to grow 5.9 per cent annually from 2017 to 2021 and reach $ 24.3 billion, there lie abundant opportunities for the industry to capture.
There will be a machinery equipment zone to offer up-to-date textile solutions. Competition in the textile market has always been fierce, but companies can stand out by utilising the latest machinery and technology. The Machinery Equipment Zone gathers some of the industry’s top suppliers with world-class expertise to present a variety of textile solutions. Richpeace Group from Hong Kong which specialises in sewing and cutting machines is one of the highlighted exhibitors in the zone. It will showcase its High Speed Fully Automatic Quilt Production line that includes a fibre line, high speed quilting machine and four-sides sewing machine. The system can also be equipped with a binding machine, hemming machine, folding and packing system as well as a hanging system to form a fully automatic production line.
The Swedish firm Eton Systems is another supplier at the fair. Its flexible material handling system – Eton Systems 5000 – has helped thousands of companies around the world to increase their efficiency, save floor space and improve the management of their entire production process.
Apart from machinery, buyers can also expect to find all kinds of finished products presented by a number of domestic and overseas big names. These include seven domestic pavilions showcasing specialised products from their regions, and will house famous Chinese companies such as Cotton Field Home, A-Fontane and Mercury Home Textiles. The presence of a number of foreign suppliers will also further enrich the fair’s diversity. Cotton USA, for instance, will showcase its new, innovative home textile technologies that can be utilised in towels, bed linen, pillowcases and bathrobes. Bemberg, the eco-friendly fibre made from cotton linter will be featured in Asahi Kasei Corporation’s booth at the show.
Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition 2018 will be held concurrently with four other textile events: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value.
