INTRODUCTION The textile industry is one of the most important sectors of Pakistan. It

contributes to the country’s GDP, exports as well as employment. It is, in fact, the backbone of the Pakistani economy.

Textile industry has the largest potential for boosting exports from Pakistan. Apart from its basic contribution of clothing the nation and at the same time earning largest foreign exchange through exportable items.

The textile industry holds the key to the growth and expansion of the country's cotton economy, which continues to be the main cash crop.

Textile Production is comprised of Cotton ginning, cotton yarn, cotton fabrics, towel, hosiery, knitwear and ready made garments.

HISTORY In 1947, 78000 spindles and merely 3000 looms that is too in the unorganized

sector, with only one textile unit.

In the late fifties PIDC came into being which had the main objective of industrializing the country in inauguration of the Valika Textile Mill at Karachi.

In 1959, the 9 largest industrial houses accounted for 50 percent of the total production.

The period between 1958 to1968, economy, especially industry experienced a relatively higher growth rate during the Ayub Regime.

By the mid sixties there were about 180units of textile bleaching, printing, and processing units, mostly situated in Karachi and Punjab. A number of spinning units ( comprising of only 12,500 spindles) were set-up. Newly established mills were based upon imported technology but there was lack of technical staff and shortages of capital.

Page 8: Textile Industry Stu

Cont… Between 1960 and 1970 Pakistan’s textile industry enjoyed over 11

percent of the world market share but today the corresponding figure is only slightly over 2 percent.

By 1970-71 there was 113 units and the industry has 2,065 thousand spindles and 30 thousand looms. After the separation of East Pakistan Cotton Export Corporation of Pakistan was established which meant the most of the private sector work was taken over by the state. The textile industry suffered heavy losses because the export of cotton was controlled by the CEC. And the import of the machinery was made difficult due to shortages of foreign exchanges.

The decade of development was followed by the Bhutto years from 1971 to 1977. His regime was characterized by the nationalization of the large scale manufacturing sector, insurance companies and banks.

Page 9: Textile Industry Stu

Cont… The eighties brought a relief to the textile industry due to the industry

friendly policies of the government. There was a rapid growth in spinning sector. Till 1980-81 spinning continued to expand to 4033 thousand spindles in 203 spinning units, and working capacity amounted to 2833 thousand spindles.

During the nineties a combination of factors adversely effected the industry, mainly:

1. Removal of export duty on raw cotton, increasing domestic prices to international levels and beyond.

2. Infestation of the cotton crop by leaf curl virus, reducing supply sharply and increasing prices.

3. Frequent changes in governments creating inconsistency in policies of the Government and Financial Institutions.

4. Rapid expansion of the installed industry in the hands of new entrants who did not have the managerial skills or the liquidity base to succeed.

5. Rapidly changing global markets, especially the shift towards man made fibers.

Page 10: Textile Industry Stu

World demand for good quality, wide width fabrics grew and replacement and modernization process started. With these developments, production and export value added items such as bed sheets and home furnishing started.

Structural changes with the replacement of obsolete machinery and modernization in the industry still continued in view of the world competition.

In the nineties and the early 2000s a textile manufacturers were making large profits by merely trading quotas rather that diversifying into higher value-added products where quotas were not required.

“Textile vision 2005” has identified the present status and opportunities

Page 11: Textile Industry Stu

TEXTILE INDUSTRY IN PAKISTAN The nation is characterized as the single crop economy that includes cotton

and textile and they contribute immensely in the Pakistan national economy.

The textile industry in Pakistan has tremendous potential to grow, provided its comparative advantages are maintained.

Pakistan has gradually emerged as world’s largest supplier of yarn, with china as one of the major buyers.

Pakistan has potential to become a strategic supplier of textile products for world’s major malls and stores, which again want a guaranteed and timely supply from the source.

Page 12: Textile Industry Stu

Distorted Economic growth

The 1960s, so-called ‘golden decade', era of industrialization, averaging 6.7% growth. On the one hand, this gave rise to the famous 22 richest families in Pakistan controlling most of industry and the economy. On the other hand, it created the sea of poverty in which 46% of the population was living.

Agriculture is employing 44% of the workforce and contributing 20.9% of GDP in 2007-08 as compared to 21.8% in 2006-07.

Feudalism, water shortages, highly expensive electricity, fertilizer and seeds, decreasing land for cultivation, very low output and yield, and old methods of farming, are the main reasons for crisis also Pakistan’s economy is largely dependent on foreign aid and loans.

Page 13: Textile Industry Stu
Page 14: Textile Industry Stu

PROCESSES The number of separate processes involved in production varies with

each textile product.

The initial stage of textile manufacturing involves the production of the raw material either by farmers who raise cotton, sheep, silkworms, or flax or by chemists who produce fiber from various basic substances by chemical processes.

The fiber is spun into yarn, which is then processed into fabric in a weaving or knitting mill.

After dyeing and finishing, the woven material is ready for delivery either directly to a manufacturer of textile products or to a retailer, who sells it to individuals for use in the making of clothes and such household articles as draperies, upholstery, and curtains.

The Pakistan Textile Engineering Sector is underdeveloped and under utilized.

The Textile Engineering Units vary from small, medium and large in size.

The Textile Engineering Industry comprises approximately 80% small work shops, 15% medium engineering Units and 5% large Engineering Units.

On the basis of initial survey of Textile Engineering Units (Not complete yet), approximately 500 units are engaged all over Pakistan, employing approximately 50000 work force which is mostly skilled. Even under the present conditions and without any support, Pakistan Textile Engineering Industry is providing import substitution worth around one billion US dollars. This sector also exports to small and medium Textile Units in Bangladesh, Iran, SriLanka,etc.

Page 34: Textile Industry Stu

MAJOR COMPETITORS The Pakistan textile industry is facing tough competition from the Indian,

Bangladeshi and Chinese textile industries. The cost of power in Pakistan is high as compared to that in other countries.

Bangladesh, India and China enjoy comparatively low interest rates than Pakistan. The prevailing rates are as following, 8.5 to 9.0 per cent in Bangladesh, 5.25 per cent in India (market rate is 10.25 per cent, however exemption of 5 percent is provided to the textile industry) and 5.58 per cent in China. Meanwhile, in Pakistan, the last three to four years has seen the interest rates to have risen more than 150 percent, to 13.25 percent.

China has expanded textile exports from $ 39.5 billions in 1998 to $ 80.0 billions in 2003.

Buyers are watching the global supply position & if Pakistani Entrepreneurs are not willing to change, the buyers will shift to China which has developed a large supply base for Textile Products.

CRITICAL REQUIREMENT Pakistan’s Textile Industry has potentials to increase volumes of textile

exports and enhance earnings by shifting more & more to high value added products.

A comprehensive policy package is desired to support the Textile Industry to survive & win the post MFA competition by making available the necessary facilities & infrastructure in a timely manner.

It is critically necessary for Pakistan to provide infrastructure for Textile Industry to expand in size and volume to compete in the international market after the elimination of MFA quota by 1st January, 2005.

Page 38: Textile Industry Stu

REQUIRED ACTION In order to give a boost to export of value added textile

products at a quicker pace, Textile Vision 2005 proposed establishment of

“Textile City”.

There is an establishment of textile industry cluster in Faisalabad region of Pakistan.

In 2005-6 the country was the fifth largest producer and second largest exporter of cotton yarn in the world. It was also the fifth largest exporter of woven fabrics in the world.

Faisalabad area has traditionally been the hub of textile industry in Pakistan. Of the estimated 225,000 shuttle power looms installed in the country, for weaving textile fabrics, more than half (150,000) were located in Faisalabad district in 2003.

In the past four decades, growth in the number of firms entering in Faisalabad textile industry has been enormous, particularly at the small and medium industry scale. Faisalabad also boasts the largest yarn market in Asia.

The globalization of Textile and APPAREL Trade has intensified during the last three decades.

The textile industry world over has experienced highly significant and irreversible changes as a result of globalization of both manufacturing and trade in the recent years. Though the demand concentrated in developed countries the manufacturing has been shifting to the developing countries.

Although global demand continued to grow, supply expanded considerably more quickly.

These changes are expected to continue and so will constitute a challenge to the textile industry in developing countries like Pakistan.

WTO IMPACT The basic fact of the matter is that with the given economic conditions and

limitations Pakistan like any developing country rely on foreign aid on one end, and the whatever is earned through exports in terms of foreign exchange, the major chunk is paid back to the international lenders leaving little room and money for the drastic economic growth cycle to be ignited.

In addition, with the appreciation of dollar, or devaluation of local currency the standard of living of an American may increase as the Pakistani goods become cheaper from him or her, but for Pakistan this devaluation hits directly the purchasing power of a common man burring into the cycle of poverty.

The major impact of WTO is on textile Sector.

The developed world has also introduced new forms of barrier like the countervailing duty, anti-dumping duties, social, labor, and security issues. Pakistani industry will have to strive hard to reach the requirement levels of social compliance.

FUTURE PROSPECTSBright prospects ahead

FUTURE of the textile industry in Pakistan seems bright as lots of opportunities are available in the wake of rising world demand for textiles.

The rise in demand is estimated at around 2.5 per cent. Thus creating greater opportunities for the fourth biggest cotton producer country of the world.

There are number of other factors which can contribute to the growth of industry for instance the ban on cotton import from India has been lifted and spinners would be allowed cotton import from India.

It does not need to import cotton from other parts of the world which helps decrease the cost of production as compared to other countries.

Moreover, the textile ministry was giving training to the workers and giving Rs2500 stipend per month to each worker and this programme was going on successfully.

'Pakistan's New Textile Policy Targets 40% Increase in

Exports' The proposed new Textile Policy (NTP) of Pakistan will help increase the

output of textile products, improve global competitiveness and generate employment in the industry.

The new policy targets a 40 percent increase in exports and meet the growing domestic demand.  It will help create 3.5 million new jobs.

The first important step is to increase domestic cotton production.

Other measures include - improvement in value addition, increase in the number and variety of value-added products, enhancement of productivity of manpower, stepping up efficiency of its existing plants and equipment, and extensive use of the imported machinery.

Five new model garment factories will be established. A textile park will be set up to serve as a special economic zone for tax free production and export. A weaving city will be established.

Cont… The financing facilities include subsidized credit and refinance facilities provided by SPB through

the commercial banks, Export Finance Facility (EFF) for textiles. The SBP has allowed swapping of costly long term bank credit, obtained previously by the industry, with cheaper Long Term Finance for Export Oriented Projects (LTF-EOP) for machinery and equipment.

Pakistan plans to raise its overall exports to $ 40-45 billion by 2013, by expanding industrial, agricultural and services sectors, including textiles.

The proposed Textile Industry Development Policy 2007 is expected to offer four tax incentives to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) in upcoming textile and garment cities in Karachi, Lahore and Faisalabad.

At present, tax authorities are charging a minimum of five percent custom duty on the import of machinery. The proposed incentives include a general sales tax exemption on utilities to those investing in upcoming textile and garment cities. The government has already allowed general sales tax at zero rating on electricity and gas consumed in the production process of the textile sector.

The exports of textile products have increased by 5.27 percent at $10.757 billion in 2006-07. The government has fixed a growth target of 12 percent for textile exports for the current fiscal year 2007-08.

INDUSTRY POLICY Pakistan has shown appreciable progress in policy frame work.

Appreciating the importance of Textile Industry and its contribution to the economy the Government announced Textile Packages and then launched its Economic Revival Programme backed by radical reforms in Textile Regime-Incentives for exports – Trade Policy Investment.

Policy and Revival of Sick Mills with the sole objective to accelerate the production and exports.

Efforts are in progress to pursue further structural changes in line with resources. The new ‘Industrial Policy’ lays emphasis on ‘Foreign Investment’ in ‘Value Added Textiles’ especially from developed countries who had been the major textile players and still hold larger market share in international market.

Evidence shows that a sustainable textile industry base can exist, but through private, for-profit initiatives and investment based on economic self interest and genuine competitive advantages.

Climate change raises serious concerns for developing countries like Pakistan, with its tremendous social , environmental and economic impacts.

The agricultural productivity in Pakistan will be affected due to changes in land and water resources.

Although Pakistan has ideal climate condition for the growth of cotton providing a factor advantage to the textile industry, but it is also quite vulnerable to pesticides that can lower the yield per hector.

The textile sector is largely dependent on the supply of raw material of agricultural sector and hence whatever happens to the agricultural sector like floods will adversely affect the textile industry rendering it even more vulnerable to environmental conditions.

From the early days of the industrial revolution, the textile industry has been seen as a major polluter of rivers .

The facilities of sanitation and hygiene are available to limited urban population.

An estimated amount of 17.5 million tons of solid waste is generated every year in Pakistan.

The untreated water flows into stream rivers and irrigation canals.

Deforestation is taking place in the country at a rapid pace.

A large number of intermediate industrial processes are conducted through imported chemicals that produce effluents and emit hazardous gasses.

Textile processing is a water intensive process. Almost 1.08-0.15 m3of water is consumed to produce one kilogram of finished fabric, translating into 1,000-3,000 million cube of wastewater generation per day against a production of 12-20 ton/day of finished fabric.

Currently the wastewater generated by the industry is discharged into the local environment without any treatment that serious negative effect on the environment.

A wide range of chemicals are used by the processing industry for dyeing and printing operations. These include bleaching agents, vat dyes, azo dyes, sulphur dyes, disperse dyes and color pigments, which are manufactured by using chemicals such as formaldehydes, hydrochloric acid, ammonia, chromium salt, soda ash, caustic soda, sodium sulphate, sulphuric acid, etc.

Extensive usage of these chemicals by the processing industry results in discharge of toxic elements as effluents, which if not treated properly have the potential to cause significant environmental degradation.

working in a car garage or textile factory can expose a person to hazardous chemicals, dusts, and fibers that may lead to a lifetime of lung problems if not properly diagnosed and treated.

CONCLUSION Textile Industry is providing one of the most basic needs of people and the

holds importance; maintaining sustained growth for improving quality of life.

It has a unique position as a self-reliant industry, from the production of raw materials to the delivery of finished products, with substantial value-addition at each stage of processing; it is a major contribution to the country's economy.

Its has a vast potential for creation of employment opportunities.

If Pakistan overcome all the problems, definitely we can back on the position stands of Textile Market.
