Turkish apparel firms claim 10% of German sales volume
Sep '17
Turkey's ready-to-wear industry has around 10 per cent share in the German apparel sales volume, the Aegean Exporters' Association (EIB) claimed recently at the Munich Apparel Source Fair. Fourteen Turkish firms under EIB, founded in 1939 with 7,500 member firms now covering 12 industrial sectors, including textiles and apparel, participated in the fair.

Pointing out that Turkey ranks third in readymade garment exports after China and Bangladesh, Aegean Association of Readymade and Apparel Exporters (EHKIB) chair Emre Kizilgünesler said the country aims for the top rank by focusing more on the German market, a Turkish newspaper reported. He hoped that the recent political tensions between the two countries would not affect the export figures.

Turkey has the largest thread, home textile and fabric production capacity in Europe, the world's third-largest supplier of socks, ranked sixth in woven fabric, and is the largest producer of woven carpets, EHKIB Promotion Committee chair Elvan Ünlütürk told the fair delegates.

Apparel exports to Germany during the first eight months of the year registered a 7 per cent rise and reached $9.6 billion. During the same period, Turkey's ready-to-wear industry saw a 1 percent increase in exports as sales hit $2.1 billion. More than 60,000 Turkish garment and textile companies employ more than a million.

The Munich Apparel Source Fair stands for a focused range of apparel and accessories manufacturing services offered by established sourcing partners presenting their production methods in Munich. (DS)
