Apparel Online - - Tex-file -

Turkey’s ex­port share of denim fab­rics is ex­pected to see a sub­stan­tial in­crease in 2018 de­spite a de­cline in 2017. In 2017, Turkey’s denim ex­ports were US $ 368.5 mil­lion, which was a 6.4 per cent slump from what it was in 2016 (US $ 393.6 mil­lion). In 2017, the coun­try had ex­ported US $ 52 mil­lion and US $ 47.4 mil­lion worth denim fab­rics to Tu­nisia and Egypt, re­spec­tively. Be­sides, Turkey’s ex­port to Italy for the same pe­riod was US

$ 40 mil­lion. To­gether, these three na­tions con­trib­uted to nearly 38 per cent of Turkey’s denim fab­ric ex­ports. By the end of 2018, Turkey, at the cur­rent pace, is ex­pected to achieve US $ 390 mil­lion, which will be an im­pres­sive in­crease of 6 per cent. With the EU and the US mar­ket be­com­ing in­creas­ingly favourable for denim, 2018 should see Turkey eas­ily achiev­ing the tar­get. Cor­rob­o­rat­ing on the same, Fuat Mi­lap, Sales Ex­ec­u­tive, Kilim Denim said, “Kilim has been suc­cess­ful with Euro­pean brands mainly be­cause Euro­peans have good knowl­edge of denim fab­rics and know what to buy. They have a good lik­ing for Turk­ish denim.” It is worth not­ing that Turkey ex­ports denim fab­rics ma­jorly to Europe, North Africa and the Far East.
