Textile export has enjoyed good times in 2006, especially in the category of fabric exports.

Knitted fabrics, cotton woven fabrics, fabrics woven with synthetic filament yarns and bed sheets were the textile products Turkey exported the most. Export performance for knitted fabrics was excellent with US $582.7 million, it increased by 36.3 percent.

Home textile, one of the basic sub-sectors of textile, witnessed a decrease of 5 percent in 2006 with export earnings of $2.1 billion.

Tulles and handmade laces export went down to Russia (-50 percent), Iran (-40 percent) and Italy (-33 percent).

Exports to Algeria, Poland and Germany also saw downturn as in 2005, Turkey exports tulles and handmade laces worth $6.4 million, $9 million and $11.8 million to Algeria, Poland and Germany. But in 2006, exports came down to $3.7 million to Algeria, $3.2 million to Poland and $1.8 million to Germany.

According to recent reports, home textile import values from Germany and Federation of Russia are increasing since 2004. Experts stated that Turkey fails to take advantage of this potential and loses market share.
