In 2022, the Egypt Lingerie Market experienced a growth of 6.85% in the value of shipments compared to 2021, and it maintained a 2.76% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) between 2017 and 2022. However, the market’s competitiveness, as measured by the Herfindahl Index (HHI), increased from 8658 in 2017 to 9407 in 2022, indicating a trend toward fewer players or exporting countries in the market.

Egypt’s growing demand for lingerie has led to an increased reliance on imports, with India unable to meet the domestic production needs. The import factor for the Lingerie Market was 20.5 in 2022, a significant rise from 8.43 in 2017. Among the top players in the market in 2022 were the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bangladesh, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia, with the UAE holding the largest market share at 96.97% and a shipment value of 7.66 million USD in 2022. The UAE’s competitive advantage was attributed to offering the product below the average market price.

In 2017, China had the largest market share, accounting for 93% of the market with a shipment value of 5.84 million USD, even though its product was priced higher than the market average. This indicated the strong brand value that China held in the Egypt Lingerie Market in 2017.
