Australia Bangladesh China India Indonesia Japan Malaysia New Zealand Pakistan Philippines Singapore South Korea Sri Lanka Taiwan Thailand Vietnam Malaysia Indonesia Singapore area enlarged Why Singapore? Singapores strategic location the crossroads of the Middle East, Asia and Australia is a neutral position between China and India, the two largest consumers of specialty fabrics in the Asia Pacific region. Singapore is readily accessible to visitors from all 16 countries targeted for the event, with little barrier to entry. Targeted Audience IFAI Expo Asia 2011 is targeting 16 Asia Pacific countries to bring together buyers and industry suppliers: 4. The State of the World Market In 2010, the projected world market for specialty fabrics is expected to be $123 billion, up 2.5% over 2009. Key drivers are expected to come from the Asia region, especially China and India, whose specialty fabrics markets are growing at an annual rate of 10% in 2010. Overall growth in Asia in 2010 is expected to be 7% compared to -3% in the United States. Key markets for specialty fabrics in the Asia region include: Automotive, infrastructure (road and bridge construction- geosynthetics), medical textiles, and safety and protective. IFAI estimates some 5,000 legitimate end product manufacturers operate in this region. 5. China Over the past 20 years, Chinas consumption of specialty fabrics has grown 10% per year. Total consumption of specialty fabrics is expected to reach 500 million tons in 2010. Consumption of nonwoven fabric is also growing rapidly at an annual growth rate of 30%. By the end of 2010, consumption of nonwoven fabric is estimated to be 200 million tons. Chinas GDP for 2010 is projected to be 10.5%. 6. India Indias specialty fabric and nonwoven industry is highly fragmented and still in the infancy stage. There is relatively little state-of-the-art technology in place compared to the U.S., Europe, and China. Yet there are opportunities for growth as the Indian government formulated Vision 2010 for textiles. The purpose of Vision 2010 is to enhance Indias share in the world textile market from 4% to 8% by the end of 2010. The focus of the government, relative to specialty fabrics, is on upgrading infrastructure (geosynthetics) and increasing the use of automotive textiles for large auto industry participants such as OEMs, suppliers, etc. Other product areas leading growth in Indias specialty fabrics market include safety and protective (defense), medical textiles, agriculture (nets, shading, mulch), and filtration fabrics. Indias share of the global specialty fabric market was about 9% in 2009, and is expected to reach 10% in 2010. In 2008, total nonwoven production in India was approximately 90,000 tons and is expected to reach 200,000 tons in 2010. 7. Thailand Thailands government approved U.S.$5.9 billion for investments in infrastructure in 2010 as part of their Stronger Thai program. In 2009, the Asian government committed more than $300 billion for green industrial projects as part of fiscal stimulus plans. Indonesia Indonesias GDP grew by 4.5% in 2009 while much of the world was contracting and has in 2010 committed U.S.$7 billion in a stimulus plan, much of it for infrastructure projects. Vietnam Gross domestic product in Vietnam expanded 6.4% in the second quarter 2010, after advancing 5.8 percent in the first three months of the year. In addition, U.S. exports to Vietnam jumped 39% in the last year.
