Promising Numbers: Spain’s Textile Exports Up Over 30%

Join Sourcing Journal on March 13th HKT for Sourcing Summit Hong Kong for discussions on mending relationships between supply chain partners, remaking factories for smaller MOQs and faster turns, and creating resilience to survive the next inevitable crisis.

Spain’s textile and clothing exports jumped 32.3% year-on-year this April, as the country shipped €997.4 million worth of textiles and apparel to foreign markets. During the same month, Spain  imported €1.118 billion worth of textiles and clothing, marking a year-on-year increase in imports of 20.2%.

The resulting difference between the sector’s exported and imported goods – a total deficit of €120.7 million – shrank 31.6% compared to last April’s deficit, possibly indicating a slowly recovering Spanish textile and clothing sector.

To slightly widen the lens, Spain has seen 13.9% textile export growth, 18.9% apparel export growth, and 6.8% textile and garment import growth, year-on-year, in the first four months of 2013.

The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness also released data indicating that across all industries, Spain’s total exports grew by 18.6%.
