Abstract: Innovation of products is the key to survival. At this exhibition, we saw some trends of the innovation and development directions of weaving machines. Important innovation criteria include energy saving, flexibility, quality, product diversification as well as higher productivity. Flexibility and versatility are the key demands of fabric manufacturers, which drive the development of fabric formation technologies. Among weaving machines exhibited at the show, flexible rapier machines dominated the sector (36 companies). Air jets came second (32 companies), followed by water jet weaving machine (8 companies), projectile weaving machines and others. For projectile weaving machines, there were only three companies. For shuttle looms, there were five. Most of companies focussed on shuttleless weaving machines, especially air jet weaving machine and rapier weaving machine. These two technologies are likely to dominate over others in the near future. ITMA Asia + CITME 2008 was also a window to see the technological gap between Chinese textile machine manufacturing sector and international manufacturers, although the product quality and diversification of China's textile machinery have made remarkable progress in the past two decades. For the Chinese textile machinery industry, global science and technology develops with each passing day, it is a long-term goal to transform textile industry with modern technologies to keep pace with the international trend of informatics technologies and keep on enhancing the continuous innovation capability.
