The Brazilian Textile industry: an amazing opportunity for investment
The textile industry in Brazil is young in comparison to other countries; however, it looks to be growing in strength and power as a green business and future fashion. The textile and apparel industry participates with equivalent amounts to more than 5% of the total Brazilian GNP in 2017.
As well as using cotton, Brazil has begun integrating synthetic fibers and yarns into its production process. However, the expansion in producing these new raw materials, however, is stemmed by obstacles that affect the internal suppliers of these products.
Looking at some industries that are buyers of this kind of fiber and synthetic yarns, the standard and most usual polyester product used in Brazil is a polyester yarn.
The Brazilian association of Producers of Artificial and Synthetic Fibers (ABRAFAS) highlighted that Brazilian producers can only supply 40% of all synthetic fiber consumed by Brazilian textile industries, meaning that Brazil is importing around of 60% of the synthetic fibers and yarns that are consumed by its textile companies.
The other most important fibers are made of raw polyester and polyester mixed with elastane. ABRAFAS explains that Brazilian producers only are able to supply 40% of synthetic fiber that is consumed by Brazilian textile industries. Logically, this means that a remarkable 60% of resources (valued at roughly US$2.5 billion per year) required by the industry is imported, suggesting operations to reduce the bureaucracy, modernize production and improve distribution services that hinder this market could be hugely profitable. Many foreign companies have already identified this opportunity and are working alongside local groups who can help support their commercial plans in the region.
As we can see, Brazil is a great and unexplored market, with a strategic, logistic and established regulatory system that allows collaboration with other Latin American countries..
The Brazilian Textile and Apparel Industry Association (Abit), founded in 1957, is one of the most important entities among the economic sectors of the country. It represents a production force of 25,2 thousand companies located throughout the national territory, companies of all sizes that employ over 1.5 million workers and together generate an annual revenue of USD 48,3 billion.
The Brazilian Textile and Apparel Sector stands out in the world scenario, not only thanks to its professionalism, creativity and technology, but also by the size of its textile facilities: it is the fourth largest textile and the fourth clothing industry in the world. Self-sufficient in cotton production, Brazil produces 5,5 billion garments per year, being a worldwide reference in beachwear, jeanswear, and home wear. Other segments are also gaining international market share such as our womenswear, menswear, children’s wear, fitness, and underwear.
To meet all the demands of the textile chain, which includes companies producing natural, artificial and synthetic fibers, including wiring, processing, weaving and apparel companies.
