Bangladesh has become the favorite destination of the retailers and brands worldwide . While , a few years back, the country was known more as a origin for sourcing cheap garments, it has quickly scaled up the value chain and is also producing value added jeans and apparel using skills and technology from around the world. The country is not only able to import fabrics and accessories from factories around the world, but its textile industry base is increasingly supporting its garment export sector. Its current denim fabric production covers about 40% of its requirements.
Some figures related to denim exports from Bangladesh from our data section . ” While Bangladesh exported about 74 million pieces of denim apparel to US in 2013, it shipped around 140 million pieces of jeans to Europe. It was actually the largest exporter of men’s jeans to Europe in 2013 with 89 million pcs compared to 65 million pcs from China. Also notable is the growth achieved in exporting these products in 2013 despite a lot of disturbances. The denim apparel exports from Bangladesh surged by 11.48% to US in 2013 over 2012 and to EU by over 19.65% in the same period . This is not a mean achievement and speaks volumes about the efforts put in by the garment and textile industry of Bangladesh and the continued trust reposed by the buyers”.
