Present Situation of the Sri Lanka’s Apparel Industry

Largest export industry of Sri Lanka is the apparel industry. But like other countries with the rise of labor cost, the country is seeking a new growth model.
High value-added products are produced in their own country, low-cost products are tried to take advantage of the garment factory of countries such as India and Bangladesh or East Africa.
Sri Lanka’s apparel industry has developed rapidly by the entry of foreign companies triggered by the market open economy introduced in 1977.
Accounting for about 46% of the total export of Sri Lanka in 2015, about 90% is shipments to North America and Europe.
According to the statistics of JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), export value of Sri Lanka’s apparel products, was US$2.75 billion in 2005, but about $4.55 billion in 2015 and it has become about 1.7 times in 10 years.
As a driving force is women’s underwear, the sum of exports of bra and shorts significantly extends from $460 million to $1.12 billion and 2.4 times in the same period.
One of the factors that led to this sharp rise includes trade expansion with a major company of the United State which carries out a consignment production of women’s underwear in Sri Lanka.
Since sewing process of these women’s underwear or infant clothing is complex compared with the trousers and T-shirt, and also need special materials and processing, it is generally classified into high value-added products. From these statistics, due to an increase in domestic labor costs, it can be seen that the production of Sri Lanka’s apparel products are shifted gradually to the high value-added products.
Sri Lanka’s apparel industry which shifts to high value-added products has promoted the transfer of production of products of which labor-intensive elements are strong such as pants, shirts & T-shirts to other countries.
