China International Nonwovens Expo (CINE) will be held from June 21 to 23, 2017. This biennial event was first held in October 2015. The expo last year featured over 80 exhibitors, with nonwovens products for the medical, filtration, building and other industries on display.
The forum, which included two days of seminars and product presentations from overseas and Chinese companies, allowed producers, end-users, academics, industry associations and other stakeholders to have in-depth exchanges on the current market trends, national industry standards and policies, and new product developments, as well as seek out new business opportunities in the Chinese market. It is ideally suited for companies in the fields of nonwovens and nonwoven products, machinery and ancillaries for nonwovens, raw materials and chemicals for nonwovens, and nonwovens industry related services.
China is the world’s largest producer, exporter and consumer for nonwoven fabrics, and over the past decade, growth in these three areas has been rapid. Between 2011-15, nonwovens output grew on an average annual growth rate of 11.7 per cent, with the country now contributing 40 per cent of global output. During this same period, sales of nonwovens in China grew 21.6 per cent, while exports increased 13.9 per cent. China has been making concerted efforts to reduce industrial pollution in the country, leading to a surge in demand for filtration nonwovens.
