Many people don’t even think about the massive fabrics industry behind the materials they use for upholstery, clothes, bedding and linen. However, these manufacturers are hard at work in a tough industry, supplying thousands of tons of materials we need to satisfy our insatiable appetite for stunning materials and fabrics.
To shine a spotlight on the fabrics industry, we’ve compiled few interesting facts and figures about the industry that you might not have known about. To start with, the global textile and garment industry, including luxury fashions, textile, clothing and footwear exceeds $3000 trillion. That is quite a chunk of change.
The world’s need for textiles manufactured using organically grown cotton exceeded more than $5 billion in 2010 alone. In the same year, China’s textile sector processed more than 40 million tons of fibre, which account for upwards of 50% of the world’s entire production. At the same time, Italy, Germany and the UK remain the largest fashion markets in Europe, with regards to consumption.
