2. % Share Of Men & Women Denim In Total Exports To EU

Segregating the imports of total denim apparels into Men & Women, we drew the conclusion that over the tenure of 4 years, Morocco exported more Men’s denim in 2015 as compared to Women’s denim and the variance was close to 14% however post 2015, there were some more minor drop downs in the exports of Women’s Denim Pcs noticed. In the year 2015 , 2016 and 2017 , the export of women’s denim apparels were 43% , 39%and 40%  respectively against the export of men’s denim apparels which were 57%, 61% and 64%  respectively for the same corresponding years. The average price of women’s denim apparels remained lesser than men’s denim apparel during this period. Thus we can see more growth in women’s denim rather than men’s. Year 2018 will be the year of shift and if all went as per the pace of 1st six months of this year, Men’s denim will gain 3% share in the total denim exports and the same will be lost by Women’s denim which will cause shrink in the total share of women’s denim at 36% only in the total denim exports.

5. % Share Of Men & Women Denim In Total Exports To EU

Segregating the imports of total denim apparels into Men & Women , we drew the conclusion that over the tenure of 4 years , Tunisia exported more men’s denim however the share has started shrinking post 2016 by 1% each year. In 2018 , the expected share for men’s denim is 64% and 36% for women’s denim.  Hence Tunisia is mainly a male garment exporter. When it comes to analyzing the price trend of both the categories , the price of men’s denim has been increasing over the years however women’s denim fell more than Euro 1 in past 4 years which could be a reason of increase in the exports of women’s denim in recent times .

The results seems beyond  expectations and Egypt is expected to have the growth rate of 17.53% by the end of 2018.
