Full Product Description

South East Asia Textile Business Review, 1st edition

The textile and apparel sector of South East Asia offers many opportunities as clothing is one of ASEAN’s largest export items. The industry has a complex supply chain in which every link, from agents and buyers to suppliers of fibres and fabrics, can be found in all ASEAN member states.

Within ASEAN, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam have significant competitive advantages in clothing production, while Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam have advantage in textile manufacturing. Most of the other ASEAN member countries also have significant capacities in textile and garment production and trade as current suppliers (Malaysia and Brunei), potential suppliers (Myanmar) or as hubs for intraregional trade as well as trade between the region and rest of the world (Singapore).

And with the rising costs of manufacturing and purchasing textiles and clothing in China, some of the big global apparel buying houses have already switched part of their sourcing to South East Asia. More are likely to follow over the next few years as the region strives to become a significant Asian and international manufacturing and design hub.

This new report will help you to identify:

• key trends in the South East Asian textile and clothing industry
• trends in raw material sources
• the domestic market potential
• opportunities and threats for the region’s textile and clothing sector
• current and future development strategies and programmes
