Saudi Arabia Textile Market

The Saudi retail market is expanding strongly due to the shift by consumers to modern retail outlets, population growth, and income growth.

Standing currently at more than US$ 4 billion, the Saudi textile imports are increasing at 13-15% annually. Ihram for men and Abayas for women, form a large section of this expanding market due to the increasing number of Haj and Umrah pilgrims. Tents and towels are also in great demand due to the nature of the countries geography and environmental requirements.

Hardly surprising that there is so much attention from across the world; particularly from organizations seeking Saudi joint- venture partnerships.
