In regards to volume, the industry experienced a growth of 25.3 percent in the first quarter of 2011 by reaching 95.73 million SMEs, compared to 76.41 million SMEs reported during the same period in 2010.

Javier Chamorro, Executive Director of PRONicaragua, considers that exports will continue to grow as the year goes by, stating that ”this year's figures have surpassed the records of 2007 by close to 23 percent in value and 43.5 in volume”. Until now, 2007 figures represented Nicaragua's peak in textile and apparel exports, with US$222.15 million in value and 66.7 million SMEs in volume.

Items such as knitted nightgown pajamas, jackets and sleepwear, cotton dresses, baby clothing, skirts and pants, shirts, blouses, cotton trousers and undergarments have demonstrated the highest growth rates during the first quarter of 2011.

In 2010, Nicaragua became the 12th largest worldwide apparel supplier to the U.S. in volume. Apparel exports in value reached US$1,017.5 million during 2010, an increase of 14 percent versus 2009. In volume, the country exported 362.4 million SMEs, an increase of 17.9 percent over 2009.
