Egypt, as a country with a long history in the world’s textile industry, is known as a producer of one of the best and highest quality cotton fibers in the world, in the field of cotton products, from fine and quality cotton yarn to all types of cotton clothing. Recently, the Egyptian government has pursued ambitious projects in the cotton yarn spinning sector by establishing the world’s largest spinning factory in Egypt.

Egypt is located in the North Africa region. With more than 100 million population, this country has a strong domestic market for textile goods and more than 3500 manufacturing companies are working in this country.

Due to the readiness of the domestic market for companies supplying machinery, equipment, raw materials and foreign investors, as well as the presence of many Egyptian manufacturing companies in export and international markets, Egypt is a good option for holding textile exhibitions.

Textile Exhibitions in Egypt play an important role in the growth of the textile industry of this country, but in general, the purpose of Egyptian textile exhibitions is to meet the needs of the domestic market for raw materials such as all kinds of tweed yarns made of synthetic fibers – clothing accessories – chemicals and especially machinery for the textile and clothing industry.

Looking at the political conditions of the past years, we find out that Egyptian textile exhibitions have not been very successful in increasing the export of textile products of this country and among them, we cannot mention an exhibition with a large number of foreign buyers.

If you intend to participate in one of big textile exhibitions in Egypt as a foreign company, you should know that the Egyptian market is not a market with high purchasing power. For example, if you are a manufacturer of textile and leather products, you should offer products with medium and low prices in the exhibition.

In Egypt, it is very important to have a good representative in the field of textile machinery for sale. Since a part of Egypt’s textile industry is still in the hands of the government, it is important to have close relations with government partners. Because in large government projects such as the establishment of the world’s largest spinning factory in Egypt, having close relations with government departments can be decisive in equal competitive conditions.

Egypt’s textile strategy aims to achieve a significant leap in the production capacity with a target production of 188 thousand tons of yarn yearly compared to the current figure of 37 thousand tons and 198 million meters of fabric instead of 50 million meters for the time being.

Known as the “white gold” for its unique characteristics; Egyptian cotton kept the position of the finest natural fibers in the world for its unmatched strength. Egypt produces about 150,000 hectares of cotton fiber yearly, while cotton yarn exports equal to US$ 400 Million.
