GCC Home Textile Market Analysis

The GCC has become a major textile hub in the world that includes fibers, fabrics, apparel, cloth, outerwear, home textiles, and technical textiles. The home Textile segment has become one of the most attractive segments in the textile industry markets within the GCC nations and has emerged as one of the most fashion-sensitive segments. The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are among the largest home textile exporters in the Middle East. The United Arab Emirates has a large textile industry and ranks third in the world in terms of textile exports. The large population, increasing rate of urbanization, and improved quality of living are largely responsible for the growing demand for home textiles like beddings, bed sheets, towels, carpets, quilts, blankets, and covers in the GCC market. The development of e-commerce for home textiles in the region is also expected to lead to increasing demand.

Like other economies, countries in the GCC had been rendered vulnerable by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, tens of thousands of migrant workers have left or applied for repatriation from GCC countries. Additionally, with scant prospects of re-employment in the current climate, large numbers of highly skilled expatriates have started to return to their home countries. The Home Textile industry faced a complete shutdown for around 2-3 months. Disrupted logistics and frozen external trade caused due to the pandemic affected the entire value chain alike.
