The Egyptian Textile Industry Dates Back To The Time Of The Pharaohs. The Country Serves As A Crossroads For The Middle Eastern Region’s Vertically Integrated Textile Industry Of Egypt.

The Public Sector Dominates The Home Textile Manufacturing Companies In Egypt, Accounting For 50% Of Spinning, 60% Of Hemming, And 60% Of Weaving. 90% Of The Garment Industry Is Owned By The Private Sector.

The textile sector is exporting its products worldwide with a major contribution to both the USA 30% and Turkey 30%, Italy 7%, Spain 5%, Germany 5% and others 23%

It is expected that Egypt will have a bigger contribution ahead as the government is injecting a huge investment in its production lines re-new, in addition, a lot of effort is paid to restructuring the governmental companies in order to give a higher fitness when approaching international markets.
