Asia is a key re­gion for pro­duc­tion of the world’s gar­ments. It is also home to sev­eral coun­tries – Bangladesh, Cam­bo­dia, China, In­dia, In­done­sia, Myan­mar, Sri Lanka, Viet­nam – all of which are highly in­te­grated into global sup­ply chains within the gar­ment sec­tor. Other na­tions to fol­low are In­done­sia and Cam­bo­dia. In­done­sia has main­tained a rel­a­tively steady mar­ket share over the last two decades. Cam­bo­dia’s gar­ment in­dus­try was worth US$ 6.2 bil­lion in 2015 (UNCTAD 2017).

In 2015, these eight coun­tries pro­duced over half the world’s gar­ments for ex­port, ac­cord­ing to a 2017 re­port by United Na­tions Con­fer­ence on Trade and De­vel­op­ment (UNCTAD).
