Textile and clothing companies in Czech Republic is reported to have raised sales by 1 percent to Kc54.8 billion in 2007. This was made possible largely because of the textile industry which showed a growth in sales of 3 percent to reach Kc46.3 billion in the same year. Even productivity of the industries, rose by 9.6 percent last year.

Sales in the textile industry were raised mainly because of technical textiles which were purchased in hefty amount for usage in car industry and construction segment.

Textile industry in turn saw a boom because of a revival of European and German market. Besides, restriction on making imports from China had also contributed immensely to the growth of the sector. However, this limitation was valid only till December 2007.

As a result, sales of textile and clothing industries in the first quarter of 2008 dropped significantly with sales of textile companies declining by 12 percent in the period while sales of clothing companies fell by 21 percent.

Moreover, appreciating Czech currency has also had an impact on sales of export oriented companies and the segment is likely to lose around Kc450 million because of high electricity prices.
