Market introduction
Ethiopia's textile and garment industry is undergoing significant development, attributed to its inexpensive and skilled labor force. Over the past few years, the remarkable economic growth in the country has fueled rapid advancements in the textile and clothing sectors. The widespread availability of cotton and other natural fibers, coupled with Ethiopia's strong domestic, regional, and international market ties, demonstrates its immense export potential. In recent years, the export scale of Ethiopian clothing, yarns, textile fabrics, and cultural attire has continuously expanded, attracting substantial foreign investment. International textile and clothing brands like PVH, H&M, and prominent Chinese companies such as Wuxi Yimian and Jiangsu Yangguang have entered the market, contributing significantly to the development of Ethiopia's textile vertical industry chain.

The Ethiopian government is committed to transforming Ethiopia into a regional hub for textile and service industries, leveraging various preferential policies to attract OEM manufacturers and create a new market production center. The government aims to achieve a target of $30 billion in textile and clothing exports in the next 10 to 15 years, which would significantly address the employment needs. According to ITC data, Ethiopia's total textile and clothing exports have surpassed $100 million, with textile exports at $30 million and clothing exports reaching $70 million. This shows a remarkable 477.4% increase over the past 8 years, with more than half of the major products exported to the European Union and the United States. Ethiopia's textile and clothing imports have exceeded $650 million, with China being the primary source, accounting for over 75% of Ethiopia's textile and clothing imports, mainly consisting of synthetic fibers, fabrics, and garments.

The textile and clothing industry holds a pivotal position in Ethiopia's strategies for attracting foreign investment, boosting exports, and overall industrial development. Due to the government's efforts in constructing industrial parks as part of its development strategy to expedite industrialization, textile and clothing enterprises have concentrated in industrial parks around the capital city of Addis Ababa, forming the general distribution of the current textile and clothing industry chain.
