Structure of the Textiles & Clothing Industry in Bangladesh

The textiles and clothing industry is segmented into the Textiles Sector (locally known as Primary Textiles Sector or PTS) and the export oriented clothing or Ready Made Garments (RMG) Sector. The textiles sector spans everything from the conversion of raw cotton to yarn through spinning yarn to weaving gray fabrics as well as finishing, dyeing and printing of gray fabrics. The final manufacturing stage of apparels subsector is called the clothing or Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector.

The textiles sector or PTS is the backbone of the clothing or RMG sector because it provides the backward linkage for both the knit and woven sectors. Textile mills setup in the 1990s and later have the latest equipment and machinery and are thus able to provide top-quality yarn and fabrics.

The domestically produced inputs hence play a significant role in reducing lead time and costs. The four key competitive advantages of the RMG sector in Bangladesh are considered as (a) quality, (b) price, (c) lead-time and (d) reliability.
