Market Overview

The Global Textile Testing, Inspection, and Certification (TIC) Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7.5% during the forecast period (2022 -2027). The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the TIC market significantly. COVID-19 has reduced manufacturing and production activities in several regions due to the implementation of lockdowns by many national governments.

The textile TIC market is expected to be driven by the introduction of new regulations and standards in the textile sector, technological innovations in the textile sector, and an increase in the worldwide trading of textiles. The textile industry is majorly being driven by the rising production of textiles and increasing trading of textile products. The global textile market size was valued at USD 993.6 billion in 2021, the U.S. is anticipated to be the largest market in the North American region for textiles. It is one of the largest producers, raw cotton exporters, and top raw textile importers. Fashion is the largest application segment in the region owing to the fast-changing fashion trends due to the increasing number of online fast fashion companies.

Automated systems, drones and integrated sensors are some of the technologies that have started to replace physical inspection, which is labor-intensive and prone to human error. TIC players value these new technologies, as they allow higher efficiency. However, they also create opportunities for new entrants. Finally, the rise of blockchain technology is full of promise for TIC players, some of which have started to investigate its specific applications. One of the main advantages of blockchain is the distributed storage of information and transaction records, thus making it immune to undetected manipulation and keeping it safe from information tampering.

Key Market Trends

Trade of Textile Products Driving the Market

The production and trading of textiles require testing, inspection, and certification services to ensure that they conform to quality-related standards, which also helps them gain recognition worldwide. The global textile industry growth continues to be driven by the world’s largest textile producing countries and the top textile exporters in 2020, mainly owing to their rising production and sales of materials such as cotton, yarn, fiber, and other finished products or apparel. While China remains the world’s largest textile producer and exporter, other major textile markets such as the EU, India, and the US, are also showing an impressive annual growth rate over the last few years. It is expected that the global textile industry will grow proportionally with the fast-changing fashion market around the world, meaning that the world’s largest textile producing countries and top textile exporters are still full of opportunities to flourish further over the near future.

China is currently the world’s largest textile producer and exporter of both raw textiles and garments, accounting for over half of the global textile output every year. The United States is the leading producer and exporter of raw cotton, while also being the top importer of raw textiles and garments. India is another one of the world’s largest textiles producing countries and largest textile exporters. It holds an export value of more than USD 30 billion a year. India is responsible for more than 6.9% of the world’s total textile production and its textile industry valued at approximately USD 150 billion. Bangladesh has emerged as a prominent competitor in the textile and apparel industry. Low labour cost and a massive workforce have enabled Bangladesh to become the third-largest exporter of textiles and apparel in the world. Bangladesh has an export value of USD 38.73 billion as calculated in 2020. Interestingly, the country is the 2nd largest textile exporter of western fast fashion brands and excels in bulk order.


Growth of E-commerce:

Quality is important for successful e-commerce sellers. Pre-shipment product inspections (PSI) is a critical step that a responsible e-commerce seller needs to undertake before shipment to avoid compromising on quality.
