The textile and clothing industry in Latin America is going through an interesting period. With a population of more than 600m people, this region is beginning to assert its own identity in the fast globalising world.
The collective struggle of Latin American countries to find their place, both within the Western Hemisphere dominated by the US superpower and in the world, is reflected in the strategies applied by textile and clothing companies.
Latin America is home to four major textile producing nations: Peru, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico.
Peru is South America’s biggest clothing exporter and boasts unique domestic raw materials, especially alpaca fibre and Tangüis cotton. Brazil, a BRIC country, has enormous growth potential in both its textile supply chains – natural fibres and man-made fibres. Colombia, the “comeback kid” of the region, cherishes great fashion dreams. Mexico is determined to regain its position as the leading supplier of garments to the US, although admitting it will need some time to beat the current market leader, China.
Meanwhile, the CAFTA-DR countries – Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua – are eagerly competing amongst themselves and Haiti for niches in the US market.
Most Latin American countries complain about contrabando and other illegal imports of (mostly Asian produced) textile goods. How they respond to this problem varies widely.
