Texcare, the trade fair for laundry and dry-cleaning technology will be held in Germany from June 20 to 24, 2020. Companies have high expectations from this year's edition because it will set the sector’s course for coming years. Exhibitors will present latest machinery, plant, processes and services for laundry and dry-cleaning technology. The top theme of sustainability will be reflected at the trade fair.
In the laundry and dry-cleaning technology sub-segment, German exports fell by 11.4 per cent in the first eleven months of 2019. Due to worldwide changes, such as rising hygiene and living standards, the industry has extremely positive expectations for the future. The topic of circular laundry is gaining in importance. The growing global hygiene standards offer many new opportunities for the entire textile care sector. Last year's tense political and economic situation also affected the laundry and dry-cleaning industry. The trade conflict between the US and China unsettled customers and reduced investment. It is precisely for this reason that Texcare is expected to generate a positive investment impetus. Companies are thinking ahead on the topic of laundry to improve connectivity and digitisation and to drive the digitisation of the entire value chain.
