Yarn Expo 2017, a leading sourcing platform for suppliers from Asian and European countries to showcase their latest collection of natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax / regenerated flax, and man-made fibres and yarns, as well as speciality products including elastic, fancy and blended yarns. The Yarn Expo Autumn 2017 will kick off from October 11 at Shanghai, China.

Yarn Expo Autumn is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK), The Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fiber Association, China Bast&Leaf Fibres Textiles Association, and China Textile Information Centre. Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) said that their Yarn Expo fairs have further solidified their status as amongst the best business platforms in the yarn and fibre industry in recent years.

The dynamism of a number of industry sectors in Asia recently has ensured that, each March and October, Shanghai is the place to be to discover the latest innovations, see all the industry leaders under one roof and place orders for the upcoming season. In particular, they are seeing strong demand for chemical fibres from emerging countries in Asia at present, as well as a lot of innovation happening with fancy yarns which is attracting buyers from the likes of Indonesia, India and Korea. Yarn Expo has also proved a successful platform for Uzbekistan suppliers to launch their products in China, and they are doing well in this market vis-à-vis their more established competitors.

Apart from India Pavilion and Birla Planet Pavilion, Uzbekistan and Pakistan exhibitors will further enrich the sourcing options for buyers with their cotton yarns. Uzbek cotton now accounts for over 80 per cent of the total cotton consumption in Hebei province of Northern China.
