China’s booming automotive market presents opportunities for nonwovens producers


China is the world’s undisputed front-runner in the global car market, leading the way in both production and sales.

Last year saw 27.8m vehicles produced in China and domestic sales of 28.1m, and while these numbers were down slightly year-on-year, the opportunities for global textile producers are still unrivalled given the overall size of the market.

And considering that only around 50% of demand for automotive textiles is met by domestic output, the opportunity for imports from overseas suppliers is high.

These opportunities can be explored at this year’s biennial China International Nonwovens Expo & Forum (CINE), which runs from 3-5 June in Shanghai.
