Pakistan's textile industry is the major contributor to the national economy in every aspect, be it exports, share in manufacturing or employment generation. Pakistan holds the distinction of being the world's 4th largest producer of cotton as well as being the 3rd largest consumer of the same. In the period July 2007 - June 2008, textile exports were US$ 10.62 Billion and accounted for 55% of the total exports.

The International Machinery Exhibition of Garment and Textile Technology (MEGATECH Pakistan) is a leading annual exhibition that is organised by Pegasus Consultancy to boost the capabilities of the Pakistani textile industry. The 7th edition of the show will be held at the Karachi Expo Centre from 3rd to 6th March, 2009.
