The 2018 survey has been compiled in cooperation with more than 200 textile machinery manufacturers representing a comprehensive measure of world production.

Trend increase in textile machinery shipment continues in 2018: spinning machinery

The total number of shipped short-staple spindles increased by about 126’000 units to a level of 8.66 million. Shipments increased for the second consecutive year, but the global trend slowed down. Most of the new short-staple spindles (92%) were shipped to Asia & Oceania where delivery decreased by -2%. The most dynamic destinations recorded in 2018 were Korea Rep., Turkey, Vietnam and Egypt with increases of +834%, +306%, +290%, +285%, respectively. The six largest investors in the short-staple segment were China, India, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Indonesia.

Global shipments of long-staple (wool) spindles decreased from 165’000 in 2017 to nearly 120’000 in 2018. This effect was mainly driven by a drop in deliveries to Asia & Oceania (-48’000 units). This region remained the strongest destination for this type of machinery but deliveries to China and Iran dropped by -60%. The biggest investors were Turkey, Iran, China, Italy, and Vietnam.

721’000 open-end rotors were shipped worldwide in 2018. This represents an 83’000-units increase compared to 2017. 91% of global shipments went to Asia & Oceania where the share to total deliveries improved by +20% to 658’000 rotors. However, China, the world’s largest investor in open-end rotors, increased its investments by +7% in 2018 while deliveries to Thailand, Malaysia, and Egypt rose by over 3 times.

Global shipments of single heater draw-texturing spindles (mainly used for polyamide filaments) increased by +48% from nearly 15’500 in 2017 to 22’800 in 2018. With a share of 91%, Asia & Oceania was the strongest destination for single heater draw-texturing spindles. China and Japan were the main investors in this segment with a share of 68% and 11% of global deliveries, respectively.

In the category of double heater draw-texturing spindles (mainly used for polyester filaments) the positive trend continues and global shipments increased by +50% on an annual basis to about 490’000 spindles. Asia’s share of worldwide shipments grew to 93%. Thereby, China remained the largest investor accounting for 68% of global shipments.

The deliveries of rapier/projectile looms dropped by -5% to 31’560. The main destination for shuttle-less looms in 2018 was Asia & Oceania with 93% of all worldwide deliveries. 92% of all water-jet looms, 83% of all rapier/projectile looms, and 99% of all Air-jet looms went to that region. The main investors were China and India in all three categories. Deliveries of weaving machines to the two countries reached 81% of total deliveries. Turkey and Bangladesh further played an important role in the rapier/projectile segment with a combined 18% of global shipments.

Circular & Flat Knitting Machinery

Global shipments of large circular knitting machines decreased by 4% to 26’300 units in 2018.

Asia & Oceania was the main destination for these machines with a share of 95% of world shipments. China remained the world’s largest investor. The country kept its global share of 86% of worldwide shipments despite a decrease in investments from 154’850 units to 122’550 units.

Finishing Machinery

In the segment of fabrics continuous, shipments of Washing (stand-alone), Singeing Line, Relax Dryers/Tumblers, Stenters, and Sanforizers/Compacters increased in 2018 by +58%, +20%, +9%, +3%, and +1%, respectively. Deliveries in the other sub-segments decreased. In the category “fabrics discontinuous”, shipments of Air-jet dyeing machines increased by +16% and deliveries of Overflow dyeing and Jigger dyeing/Beam dyeing machines fell by -7% and -19% respectively.
