Around 200 suppliers from China and other countries will display their products including bedding and towelling, carpets and rugs, table and kitchen linen, home textiles, and textile design at the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles during March 12-14, 2019. By participating, companies get to tap into the finished products market in China.
Bedding products account for half of home textiles sales in China. Thanks to the rising number of middle class citizens and a steady increase in new marriages every year, there is a growing demand for bedding products. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the total income of those bedding enterprises above a designated size reached US$ 12.3 billion in the period between January and September 2018, while their domestic sales amassed US$ 8.3 billion, representing a year-on-year increase of 6.2 per cent.
Spring is traditionally regarded as the start of a new year in China and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles has been facilitating industry players to capture the market potential during the peak sourcing season for home textile finished products. The 2018 Spring Edition was sought after by the industry, and more than 20,000 buyers from 68 countries and regions came to source. It also offered valuable opportunities for exhibitors to tap into the China market.
“It is one of the important platforms for us to launch products for the year as many suppliers and brand buyers are looking for new items during this prime sourcing period. We also expect the demand for quality finished products to keep growing due to the rising living standard,” Gao Qi, district manager of Sunvim Co commented after their participation in 2018.
Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition 2019 is held concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value.
Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK), the Sub-Council of Textile Industry (CCPIT), and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
