China plays a starring role in ANEX show, with numerous booths, and new capacity to discuss

CLOVERDALE, CA, July 5, 2018-

Everything was big about the Asia Nonwovens Exhibition & Conference 2018 (ANEX 2018), held last month in Tokyo. The triennial show, the biggest nonwovens trade event in Asia, attracted about 700 exhibitors from nearly 30 countries and an estimated 31,000 visitors.

With so many potential customers and suppliers on hand, many firms announced new products, and eight Chinese companies had capacity expansions to discuss, focusing mainly on spunlace and spunlaid platforms. China’s investment in new capacity has been so impressive that some delegates worried in the hallways that an overcapacity situation could emerge in some sectors in the next few years.
