The industry for technical textiles is continuing along its path of dynamic growth. One year before the start of the leading international fair for technical textiles and nonwovens (14–17 May 2019), the number of registrations is already significantly higher than that of the previous event at a comparable time. And Texprocess, the leading international trade fair for the processing of textile and flexible materials on the same dates, is also reporting an increase.
“Every two years, Techtextil in Frankfurt becomes the international port of call for forward thinkers, manufacturers and users of high-tech textile products. Our trademark is the variety of textile solutions being used across different industries. This high number of registrations underlines Techtextil’s international status,” says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles and Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
So far, exhibitors from 44 countries have already decided to take part in Techtextil. There is a strong focus on fibre-based products for industry, architecture and construction, clothing, mobility, medicine, sport and hazard protection. The list of exhibitors includes AG Cilander, Freudenberg, Hyosung, Ibena Textilwerke, Kordsa, Lenzing, Olbo & Mehler Tex, Porcher, Peppermint Holding, PHP Fibres, Sandler, Sattler Pro-Tex, Schoeller, Sioen and Tenowo. And visitors can also expect an extensive offer in the field of textile machinery. All international market leaders are represented, including Dilo, Groz-Beckert, Huntsman, Karl Mayer, Lindauer Dornier, Monforts and Trützschler.
Digitalisation is making huge strides, so there will be even more digitalised solutions on show at the next edition of Techtextil. The exhibitors of Texprocess are once again representing all steps in the textile processing chain from IT-assisted design to cutting and joining technologies down to finishing, textile logistics and recycling and, in addition to the clothing industry, are therefore also appealing to the leather goods industry, furniture producers and the automobile industry. Particularly well represented are exhibitors with a focus on CAD/CAM, cutting, making, trimming (CMT), stitching, joining and fastening, as well as automation and information technologies. The finishing sector is also reporting strong growth.
33,670 professional visitors from 104 countries visited Techtextil 2017. And over 7,091 professional visitors attended Texprocess, which was taking place at the same time.
