  • Turkey’s import of Man-made fibre textiles from the Global market in 2018 was US$ 5.48 Billion. However, import of man-made fibre textile by Turkey from India was only US$ 569 million accounting for 10% of its total import of MMF textiles in 2018.

  • Product share in India’s export of MMF textiles to Turkey were Fabrics 3% (US$ 13.45 Mn), Made ups 1.35% (US$ 6.66 Mn), Yarn 88% (US$ 433.91 Mn) and Fibre 8% (US$ 37.64 Mn)
