Garment and textile suppliers in Pakistan account for around 61% of the export value of the country. With a large agricultural industry, locally grown cotton is spun into textiles and both exported and made into finished products for export. With such a large industry in India, Australian brands are looking for other avenues in the region to outsource production to including Pakistan.
Growing numbers of Suppliers in Pakistan
Pakistan suppliers are growing quickly with a large expansion in the number of private manufacturing factories over recent years. Cotton is the largest segment of garment manufacturing in Pakistan with other options including wool, jute, filament yarn and artificial and synthetic fibres. This has led to a number of large companies in Australia and abroad looking to outsource their garment and clothing production to Pakistan. Outsourcing to Pakistan is still a relatively low-cost option for manufacturing while still being a mature market brands can trust.
Within the textile production industry the main sectors include spinning, weaving, processing, printing and dyeing and garment manufacturing. Many Australian companies are actively pursuing suppliers in Pakistan due to the high quality goods being produced in the region.
