Re:  Participation in TEXWORLD ISTANBUL in Turkey from 3 to 5th November, 2015

We are glad to inform you that the Council is proposing to organize participation of its member-companies in the forthcoming TEXWORLD ISTANBUL being held at Lutfi Kirdar International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Turkey from 3 to 5th November, 2015. As you are also aware, TEXWORLD ISTANBUL is one of the renowned International Fairs in Turkey, which does attract leading buyers from all over Turkey and the neighboring countries as well. The Fair is being organized by Messe Frankfurt Istanbul Uluslararasi Fuarcilik Ltd.

Profile of the Event

TEXWORLD ISTANBUL is an important Fair for professionals from all fields of the industry. Over the past few years, fabrics imports from all over the world into Turkey have increased visibly. This is valid for raw materials and finished goods alike, and it happened parallel to the growth of the domestic market. Today's size of the Turkish market gives path to the fact that "the bigger the market, the more diverse the import basket". This also created a high demand for fabrics from new sourcing points like Asia, North Africa, South America and Eastern Europe.

Turkey has a traditionally strong and highly developed production base for almost all Industries, and it supplies many needs from domestic sources, but diversified production needs of the domestic market make import of a variety of goods necessary.

TEXWORLD, as the strongest global brand for fashion fabrics Fairs, has been closely connected to the Turkish market in terms of exhibitors and visitors since its foundation. A rollout into the Turkish market is logical, as Turkey has one of the strongest global textile industries. The specific structure of TEXWORLD and the strength of the brand in developing markets make it an advantageous project-idea for markets with increased import needs from global production bases. 

Why to participate in TEXWORLD ISTANBUL?

  • Istanbul is today the most important Business Hub of the Region.
  • Turkey enjoys Visa-free travel regulations with many countries
  • The city and the country are strategic locations for textile and clothing manufacturing
  • Istanbul and many other cities in Turkey became centers of excellence for textile design
  • Turkish market shows year by year growing demand for imports of raw materials and fabrics
  • The Fair has the potential to become the unique purchasing point in the region

Market Potential

  • Turkey imported US$ 13 billion of textiles and clothing during 2014 from various markets.
  • However, Turkey‘s import of textile and clothing from India during 2014 was a meager US$ 1.03 billion (just 8% only). So, there is huge scope for us to expand our current trade.
  • Turkey’s import of Man-made fibre textiles from the Global market in 2014 was US$ 6 Billion. However, import of man-made fibre textiles by Turkey from India was only US$ 650 million --- accounting for 9% of its total import of MMF textiles in 2014.
  • Product shares in India’s export of MMF textiles to Turkey are Fabrics 2% (US$ 12.35 Mn), Made-ups 3% (US$ 14.44 Mn), Yarn 86% (US$ 489.48 Mn) and Fibre 10% (US$ 54.06)
  • Main MMF textile items imported by Turkey from India include Polyester Filament fabrics, Polyester Blended fabrics, Polyester Viscose fabrics, Polyester Filament Yarn, P/V Yarn, Shawls/scarves, Muffler, etc.        
  • Major countries supplying MMF textiles to Turkey are Indonesia, India, China, Vietnam, Germany, etc.
