A textile and garment machinery exhibition (DTG) is on in Bangladesh from January 9 to 12, 2019. This is the largest textile machinery exhibition in Southeast Asia. Bangladesh has now emerged one of the potential markets for global textile and garment machinery manufacturers thanks to rising demands for locally made apparel items across the world.
Spinners, weavers and readymade garment makers have been investing billions of dollars in setting up new factories and expanding their existing capacity. Millers and exporters can buy machinery from the exhibition venue.
Some 1,200 textile and machinery manufacturing companies from 37 countries including Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, UAE, UK and the US are displaying their products at 1,650 booths.
Textile machinery manufacturers value Bangladesh as the center of the textile and clothing machinery business hub. Local spinning millers meet 80 per cent to 85 per cent of the knitwear sector’s requirements while woven millers can meet 35 per cent to 40 per cent of the demand for woven fabrics by readymade garment exporters. Textile and apparel buyers see Bangladesh as a major sourcing destination. DTG is now in its 15the and participation rose by about 25 per cent.
