Trade Show: Cinte Techtextil China 2020

Technical textiles in strong demand

While the spreading of the coronavirus is slowing down the economy worldwide, the technical textiles industry is profiting from the strong demand for products like face masks that are now running out. Cinte Techtextil China is getting ready for a strong September 2020 edition and expects the nonwovens industry to grow strongly in the second half of the year after an increase in nonwoven production of almost 10% to 5.03 million tons in 2019.

What is far more important in times of the coronavirus than toilet paper, noodles and flour? Intensive care beds and vital ventilators but also protective technical products like face masks. There is a supply shortage of one key raw material for surgical mask production. Demand for this material as well as for meltblown nonwovens and meltblown equipment will be strong at Cinte Techtextil China from 2nd to 4th September 2020. Leading companies like A. Celli Nonwovens, Dilo Systems, Reifenhäuser Reicofil und Trützschler Nonwovens have already registered for the biennial trade show for technical textiles and nonwovens at Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

“Obviously the novel coronavirus outbreak has severely affected economic growth across China in the last two months, however we expect the economy to rebound strongly in the second half of the year,” said Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd., basing the organiser’s expectations amongst other things on the statements of 40 international economists polled by Reuters in February. “This unfortunate situation does present opportunities in the personal hygiene and protective wear sectors in particular though, with global demand soaring for products made from nonwovens, including face masks, antibacterial wet wipes, protective apparel and more,” Ms Wen continued. Companies like Arkema Investment Co Ltd, Bostik SA, Graf + Cie AG, Itematech, Monosuisse Group, Picanol NV, Rowa Lack GmbH, Stahl Holdings BV und Textest AG have also confirmed their participation in Cinte Techtextil China in September.

The Chinese sister event of German Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main attracted 13,203 visitors from 55 countries and regions in 2018. 40% of the 485 exhibitors at the trade show came from abroad.
