Yarn Expo Autumn 2024

Eco-friendly products in the spotlight, this year’s spring show signaled a positive outlook for the global yarn and fiber market. Set to continue the momentum, Yarn Expo Autumn 2024 will open doors from 27 – 29 August at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), where exhibitors will showcase a wide spectrum of in-demand, innovative and sustainable yarns and fibers. Held concurrently with the 30th edition of Intertextile Apparel, as well as CHIC and PH Value, the fair will see the entire value chain come together for active business and insight exchange, encouraging industry growth and connection.

Event Dates

Yarn Expo Autumn will be held from 27 – 29 August 2024.

Market Outlook

Driven by a raft of societal development factors, such as introducing new fabrics and significant Asia-Pacific population growth, the global textile yarn market is projected to reach USD 17.87 billion by 2031. Expressing her confidence in the market and Yarn Expo, Ms. Wilmet Shea, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, commented: “As daily essentials, yarns and fibers are always needed – especially those reflecting sustainability efforts due to rising public awareness. With high visitor flow and positive feedback at recent editions, Asia’s leading yarn and fiber trade platform remains a hotspot for innovation and sustainability amongst global buyers, and we are eager for our exhibitors to benefit again this autumn.”

Eco-friendly Initiatives

A well-known platform for sustainable upstream sourcing, the fair will align with the Texpertise Econogy initiative (the umbrella for Messe Frankfurt’s sustainability activities at its more than 50 textile trade shows worldwide). Set to focus strongly on eco-friendliness in response to market needs, the upcoming autumn show’s green initiatives will span the high-traffic Trend Forum, as well as multiple seminars and product showcases.

International Participation

Exhibitors from a number of countries and regions have already confirmed their participation, including China, France, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Singapore, Türkiye, Vietnam, and more. Once again, business matching meetings will be organised to pair suppliers with relevant buyers.


Pleased with his sourcing options at last year’s autumn show, Mr Mani Kant, Director of Bishnu Texport Pvt. Ltd, India, commented: “I see more potential suppliers and many visitors. My main concern this year is sustainable and biodegradable products because most of our clients are looking for these kinds of products, to supply to European and US apparel brands. Especially plentiful here are recycled yarns and fibers. I have visited many exhibitions, but I think Yarn Expo is one of the best platforms to source yarns, learn about new trends, and meet many suppliers in one place, which is a big time and money saver.”

Past Success and Future Expectations

Eclipsing the success of Yarn Expo Autumn 2023, the 2024 spring fair welcomed nearly 22,000 buyers from 107 countries and regions. At both editions, regenerated and cotton products were two of the most sought-after categories at the fairground, and are expected to be high on buyers’ lists this autumn.

Concurrent Events

Yarn Expo Autumn will be held concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition, CHIC, and PH Value. The four fairs will bring the fiber and yarn, apparel fabrics, knitted garments, accessories and fashion industries together under one roof, with the resultant synergy allowing exhibitors and buyers to maximise their business opportunities.


Yarn Expo Autumn is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT.
