Industry strides towards greener future as Yarn Expo Spring 2024 closed

19/04/2024 09:51 AM
As a platform for discovery and business exchange, the fair, held from 6 – 8 March, spun a global thread of connections across its hall.
Drawing nearly 22,000 buyers from 107 countries and regions to connect with over 515 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions, this year’s edition witnessed a rise in internationality, with overseas visitors increasing by 90%, and five new exhibiting countries joining the fold (Bangladesh, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore, and the UAE). Across the 27,000 sqm show floor, sustainability took centre stage as streams of visitors explored the latest innovations, from eco-friendly cotton yarns, to recycled and regenerated fibres, and many more.

Speaking at the fair’s conclusion, Ms Wilmet Shea, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said: "Much of the global textile industry has been working to make manufacturing processes more sustainable; developing transparency measures within their supply chains to achieve this goal. With a rise in international exhibitors, coupled with increased domestic options, buyers found inspiration in the many eco-friendly innovations showcased across the fairground. The global synergy bodes well for future editions, as exhibitors were impressed by the high visitor quality and buying competence.”

Over the three-day showcase, sustainability was a strong theme. Among the wide variety of products on display, many brands incorporated both natural and regenerated synthetic fibres, prioritising yarn quality, and a commitment to building towards a more environmentally friendly and ethical future. By enhancing this ambition, “Texpertise Econogy”, the umbrella for sustainability activities, is poised to continue infusing eco-consciousness into Messe Frankfurt's more than 50 textile trade shows worldwide.

This was clearly demonstrated across multiple pavilions and zones, featuring products such as recycled yarns, TENCEL™ yarns, and organic cotton, complemented by a series of innovation-focused fringe events. These included China Fibres Fashion Trends Display Zone, highlighting the latest downstream vogues for various yarns and fibres.

International exhibitor numbers doubled, with domestic exhibitors also up by 27%. In addition, the show recorded visitors from 52% more countries and regions – a sign of healthy demand and recent visa reforms, with the top five international visiting countries and regions including Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Meanwhile, wide-ranging positive feedback underscored the fair as Asia’s leading yarn and fibre platform.
