Bangladesh overtakes Pakistan in weaving capacity

Nov '12
Bangladesh, counted among the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) of the world, has overtaken Pakistan in textile weaving capacity.
 
During 2006-11, Bangladesh added 2.830 million spindles and 21,850 shuttleless looms in the textile sector, taking the total number of installed spindles in the country to 8.7 million and shuttleless looms to 28,000, according to the data from the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF).
 
In comparison, Pakistan has been able to add only about 1.8 million spindles and over 3,100 shuttleless looms since 2005, taking the total installed spindles to 11.9 million and shuttleless looms to 24,000.
 
Thus, Bangladesh today has a higher weaving capacity than Pakistan, and about three-fourths of Pakistan’s spinning capacity.
 
During 2006-11, India added 15.33 million spindles and more than 30,000 shuttleless looms to its textile sector, taking the total to 41.27 million spindles and around 38,000 shuttleless looms.
 
During the same period, China added 38.29 million spindles and over 360,000 shuttleless looms in its spinning and weaving industries, taking the total installed capacity to 120 million spindles and around 587,000 shuttleless looms.
