The companies were able to generate a combined turnover of Euro 2,900 million in 2007 to garner a estimated share of 24 percent from among all textile related manufacturing activities in Spain.

The technical textiles sector is involved in most of the branches related to the sector like Agrotech, Buildtech, Geotech, Indutech etc.
