Top textile producing countries – additional information

China is the largest textile producing and exporting country in the world. With its rapid growth over the last two decades, the Chinese textile industry has become one of the main pillars of the country’s economy. Clothes, clothing accessories, textile yarns and textile articles are amongst the top export goods from China. In 2014, China’s textile exports were valued at just over 110 billion U.S. dollars, a figure that corresponds to 35.6 percent of the global market share. Low cost and vast labor, reduced commercial barriers and material supply availability are a few of the competitive advantages the country offers for the clothing manufacturing industry. In regards to material supply, for example, China produced nearly 90 billion meters of cloth in 2014 alone, and 6.5 million metric tons of cotton in 2014/2015.

The European Union, with nearly 24 percent of the global market share and a market value of 75 billion U.S. dollars, is the second largest textile exporter region in the world. Italy, Germany, Spain, France and the Netherlands are the leading countries in the clothing industry within the EU. There are over 170 thousand textile and clothing companies in the EU as of 2014; about 70 percent of them are clothing companies, 30 percent are textile companies, while man-made fiber companies account for less than one percent.

India is also amongst the top textile producing countries in the world; its market was valued at 18 billion U.S. dollars in 2014. The country is also a leading cotton producing country. In 2014/2015, cotton production in India amounted to around 6.4 million metric tons, just a hundred thousand less than China, the top producer.
