Turkish textile firms to focus more on German market

At the Munich Apparel Source Fair, organized simultaneously with the Munich Fabric Start Fair, one of the largest fabric fairs in the world, some 14 Turkish firms, under the leadership of the Association of Aegean Exporters (EİB), attended the fair.

At the Munich Apparel Source Fair, the EHKİB Promotion Committee Chair Elvan Ünlütürk made a presentation, where she explained the advantages offered by the Turkish textile sector.

According to a statement of the Association of Aegean Exporters (EİB), Turkey’s ready-to-wear industry has around 10 percent of the German apparel market, as 10 out of every 100 Germans wear clothes and apparel made in Turkey,

Aegean Association of Readymade and Apparel Exporters (EHKİB) Chair Emre Kızılgüneşler said that Turkey was one of Germany’s biggest suppliers in clothes and apparel.

Pointing out the fact that Turkey was third in readymade garment exports, after China and Bangladesh, Kızılgüneşler said that they want to rank first by focusing more on the German market.

He also highlighted the exporters’ belief that the recent political tensions between the two countries would not affect the export figures.

During the first eight months of the year, exports to Germany registered a 7 percent increase, reaching $9.6 billion. During the same period, Turkey’s ready-to-wear industry saw 1 percent increase in exports as sales hit $2.1 billion.

Turkey boasts more than 60,000 garment and textile companies that employ more than a million people. Turkey has the largest thread, home textile and fabric production capacity in Europe. It was also the world’s third largest supplier of socks and ranked sixth in woven fabric. It was also the largest producer of woven carpets.
