At the inauguration of SINCE 2017, Mr. Wang Yanxi, honorary chairman of the National Nonwovens Technology Association, PRC, pointed out, that starting from 1986 as a small event with only 12 companies, 20 booths and about 200 visitors, he was very proud to witness the kick off of the 17th annual SINCE yesterday, which has become one of the four biggest nonwovens event around the world with 461 exhibitors from over 25 countries and regions that exhibited on the 27000 sqm space.

Mr. Wang said, “More than 20 years ago, thanks to the great support of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People´s Republic of China, we started to study nonwovens technology in Shanghai, little by little, through the SINCE platform, it finally grows into such an important and revolutionary industry, that it can be a totally independent sector in its importance.”

Statistics show that the China nonwovens industry has achieved many No.1's in the world, in terms of production volume, capacity and market size. “Nevertheless, we still have a lot of work to do to solve many challenges in technology development perspective,” he added.

At last, Mr. Wang called for all the industry players and insiders in the China nonwovens industry to join hands together, to develop the nonwovens industry to be even bigger, stronger.
