Record-breaking 500+ exhibitors ready for trend-setting Yarn Expo Autumn 2023
With participants gearing up for this week’s Yarn Expo Autumn 2023, the value of China’s highly skilled labour force, advanced manufacturing technologies, and extensive distribution network – the most sought-after attribute for global players – is as apparent as ever. As Asia's largest and most comprehensive yarn and fibre trade platform, the fair is set to leverage China's strengths as a dominant player in the global yarn market, while also attracting major overseas suppliers. During the three-day show from 28 – 30 August 2023, over 500 exhibitors will gather in Hall 8.2 at the National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai).
Yarn Expo Autumn 2023 to shine spotlight on growing global cotton yarn market
In order to meet the dual challenges of sustainable industry development and economic recovery, every product along the textile supply chain needs to be produced with efficiency, performance, fashion, and sustainability in mind. As the intermediary between fibre and fabric, yarn is of course a key link. Further upstream, one of the textile industry’s most significant raw materials is cotton. Its influence is in evidence everywhere, from booths at international trade fairs, to the shirts worn by visitors from all over the world. In a showcase of the ever-growing importance of the cotton yarn market, Yarn Expo Autumn 2023 is set to gather over 100 exhibitors in this category to Hall 8.2 at the National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai).
Stage set for sustainable fibres at Yarn Expo Autumn 2023
Over the past few years, eco fibre market growth has been fuelled by rising environmental awareness and an increased desire for sustainable products. The thriving demand for green textiles, particularly from China , continues to propel market development in Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world. Following the success of the spring show, the next edition of Yarn Expo Autumn will help industry players meet new market demand for eco-friendly yarn and fibre. The fair is set to take place from 28 – 30 August 2023 in Hall 8.2 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), with over 500 confirmed exhibitors to cover 27,000 sqm.
Yarn Expo Autumn sews up dates for August return
China is gradually lifting restrictions for inbound travellers, and the country’s yarn and fibre industry is ready to make an impactful return to international in-person business. The fair, set to help key suppliers reconnect with global buyers, will be held from 28 to 30 August 2023 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). Visitors to the fairground will be able to discover the latest trends and technology, and take advantage of a regional market showing strong potential.
Sustainable machinery and the recycling of post-consumer textiles
The textile supply chain starts with raw materials, meaning green and sustainable fibres were hot topics that dominated Yarn Expo Autumn, alongside carbon neutrality and circular economy. With three quarters of the world’s unwanted garments ending up in the landfill, Switzerland-based Rieter, a leading supplier of systems for short-staple fibre spinning, is committed to using less raw material and diverting waste away from the landfill. So how exactly is Rieter ‘closing the loop’ in the textile industry? We found out at Yarn Expo Autumn 2021.
How Tung Ho Textiles add value with fish scale waste
As a leading yarn and fibre exhibition, Yarn Expo is used as a promotional platform for showcasing all kinds of innovative, unique products from around the world. Exhibitors from 14 countries and regions joined Yarn Expo Autumn 2019, including Tung Ho Textiles from Taiwan. Their innovative products – including a functional blend of TENCEL™ and fish scales – proved popular at the fair. Messe Frankfurt had a chance to sit down with Mrs Emily Chiang, from the Marketing Department of Tung Ho Textiles, and discuss how function adds value to textile products.
With 10,000 years of history, see why spinners are choosing hemp again
Sustainable, efficient and with 50,000 possible end uses: hemp offers a useful product for a range of industries. Hemp fibres have been spun into fabrics for at least 10,000 years, but in recent decades, hemp has been a less popular choice for textiles. However, thanks to the crop’s natural benefits, for both sustainability and comfort, hemp is making a comeback in a huge range of industries, including apparel. Lithuanian hemp fibre supplier Naturalus Pluostas (Natural Fiber) joined Yarn Expo Autumn for the first time in September 2019, and experienced huge interest in their hemp fibres.
A sustainable supply chain, from the ground up: a case study of CCI
Cotton Council International (CCI) is a global non-profit organisation, which promotes US cotton using their COTTON USA™ brand.

Messe Frankfurt had a chance to sit down with Ms Karin Malmström, Director of CCI China & Northeast Asia, to discuss the benefits of using a sustainable raw material throughout the entire supply chain.
