Jute goods witness global demand hike

Nowadays, people across the world prefer eco-friendly lifestyle, due to which natural fibres are gradually replacing synthetic fibres which in turn has led to jute goods witnessing huge demand in global market due to its biodegradable feature.

Bangladesh exported US $85.62 million worth of jute items during July-September exceeding the target set at $69.55 million, bringing back memories of the jute trade at its peak in previous years. However, raw jute brought in just $36.01 million, against the targeted amount of $38.27 million.

A four-day exhibition of natural fibre-made products is being organized in the capital. The products made especially from jute and silk fibres are on display in the exhibition which has been inaugurated by the President, Mr. Md Zillur Rahman.

Products made from jute are experiencing demand surge in both, domestic and international markets. At present, Bangladesh exports over a thousand types of jute products to overseas markets on account of manufacturers' efforts to develop diversified products for various applications.

Variety of bags, showpieces, sandals, wall-mats, handmade carpets, handicrafts, doormats, saris, jute-made fabrics, toys and kitchen products are among the key export items of Bangladesh. The sector could see further development, if the government provides support to the small entrepreneurs of the sector, said an expert.

Moreover, loan facilities and easy access to international trade fairs should be ensured to the industry entrepreneurs for development of the sector. Demand for jute goods could see further growth, if the government makes it mandatory to use jute items in government offices, seminars and conferences, he opined.

Jute goods manufacturers are focusing on value-added jute products as these products offer better returns.
