South African Textile Industry 2022: Rapid Response Manufacturing Requires Faster Supply of Raw Materials

By on April 5, 2022 0

DUBLIN, April 05, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Textile Industry in South Africa 2022” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The textile industry has been in long-term decline since 1994 due to trade liberalisation, increasing cheap Asian imports and declining competitiveness and manufacturing capacity of local players. The result has been the deindustrialization of the textile component of the value chain and a situation where the vast majority of fibers are exported and the majority of yarns and woven textiles are imported.

Master plan

The decline of the textile industry has created a political dilemma – whether to protect imports and reduce the competitiveness of garment manufacturers, or allow discounts on textile imports by garment manufacturers and facilitate the deindustrialisation of Europe. local textile supply. This dilemma can be resolved in the Retail-CTFL (Apparel, Textile, Footwear and Leather) Master Plan, implemented in 2019. The plan’s mechanisms aim to reduce input costs for apparel manufacturers while securing supply agreements supply for local textile manufacturers. The plan includes national procurement targets.

Rapid Response Manufacturing

Rapid-response manufacturing, led by retailers and design houses, puts immense pressure on apparel manufacturers to be flexible and respond quickly to changes in fashion, style and design. The trend does not put similar pressure on the textile industry, but it requires a faster supply of raw materials. Global supply chain disruptions have presented domestic textile manufacturers with a unique opportunity to supply inventory faster than international suppliers.
