ACIMIT, the association of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, and ICE, the Italian trade agency, will take part in the 2014 edition of Techtextil North America from May 13 to 15 at Atlanta, Georgia. The associations have organised a meeting point where 13 Italian machinery manufacturers involved in the production of machines for technical textiles will showcase their innovative solutions. Techtextil North America showcases the latest Italian technology for technical and innovative textiles. Key US markets have seen a rise in demand for technical and innovative textiles.

The US market for specialty fabrics and technical textiles registered a 2 per cent growth in 2013, and the projections for 2014 are also positive. In 2013, Italian sales of textile machinery reached €72 million, an increase of 4 per cent compared to the previous year. In 2013, the most relevant share of the Italian machines exported to US was for the finishing sector (30 per cent), followed by accessories (28 per cent).
