The output of the textile market in UAE has increased from USD 778.1 million in 2007 to USD million in 2011, at a CAGR of 4.7%. In wake of favorable economic and business conditions in the country, the textile manufacturing market in UAE has been experiencing intense competition from the textile manufacturing countries in South East Asia such as China, India and Thailand.

In 2010, there were signs of recovery and the revenue increased by 6.2%. This upward shift can be attributed to demand for textile and textile articles from countries like Iran, Russia, China, India and the other GCC states.

UAE brought in maximum of its textile and textile articles imports from China valued at USD 2,152.0 million in 2011. It has been witnessed that China and India constituted a major segment of the textile and textile articles imports in the UAE since the cost of manufacturing apparel and other such articles is very low-priced in these countries due to the availability of low cost labor and low input costs.

Traditional retailers like baby care specialists struggled to compete with leading brands in children’s wear because of strong branding and their presence in shopping mall locations. Hosiery sales were hit by a % decline in 2010 but recovered by % in 2011. The Nightwear segment greatly supported by the women’s category grew by % in volume terms
