    Garment orders move to Pakistan, as COVID bites India, Bangladesh

    As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread unabated in India and Bangladesh, garment orders from international markets are rapidly shifting towards Pakistan.

    However, the garment sector in the country is facing a severe shortage of yarn due to a shortage of cotton.

    As per reports, the development comes at a time when export orders are declining in Pakistanís neighboring countries due to the COVID pandemic, there is a flurry of export orders for Pakistanís garment sector, as India and Bangladesh, affected by the pandemic, have not yet been able to produce and deliver goods to European and American markets on time.

    This has pushed the entire production pressure of the textile industry on Pakistanís textile exports.

    However, there exist a major hurdle for the local industrialists to take advantage of this opportunity, as they say, that they are worried about the shortage of raw material, especially yarn, for the orders received by the garment sector.

    Industrialists say that the international client gives 35 to 40 days for shipments but the local mill is giving them three monthsí time.

    Exporters say that if the government does not take immediate action, not only will orders from rival countries stop moving to Pakistan, but local industrialists will also lose out to permanent buyers.

    Cases in Bangladesh are dropping but India is still having a really high rate.

    Good for Pakistan though.

    The recorder.com website would have more credibility if they had actual numbers from reliable sources in their articles.

    Faisalabad (Punjab) is the main hub. Also called Manchester of Pakistan for its Textile Industry.

    Also there are some Textile units in Karachi and Hyderabad (Sindh), and Lahore (Punjab) but not comparable to Faisalabad.

    Faisalabad is unique in this context because you will find Power Looms operating everywhere across the city in residential areas.

    Hopefully, this increase in demand causes the industry to grow so that it can sustain the constant influx of orders without compromising on the quality. Our textile industry needed this boost but now the bigger challenge is to sustain this momentum and keep the new customers from going back to their previous sellers once the situation normalises.

    Indeed.

    It is high time that Pakistan clings onto this for as much as possible and not compromise on quality so this industry can get back onto it's feet.

    this is only good for the mill owners.

    Textile retailers are not gonna benefit from this. They have suffer alot and most clothing stores had to close down their branches.

    Anyways, hope this helps the mill owners somewhat, but they will still mess it up. Other countries have set standards, in Pakistan, they still have breakfast and chai on the same cloth that they are sewing. THey leave marks on it which is why many companies have stopped buying from us.
