Latin American Textiles Market Analysis

The Latin America Textile Market size is estimated at USD 33.60 billion in 2023, and is expected to reach USD 42.21 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.67% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

The COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused major disruptions to the international trade flows and global economy, has resulted in a sudden drop in textile productivity in the Latin American region. The pandemic has largely impacted the region. The Mexican textile and clothing market, which is one of the top markets in the region, has been operating the entire supply chain from cotton and other man-made fiber production. Mexico being one of the key suppliers of textiles and clothing to the United States, which sends a large proportion of its textile and related product exports to the United States, has been facing difficulties in manufacturing due to the lockdown and other safety measures. The situation is expected to get back to the pre-COVID-19 scenario slowly, yet the market is anticipated to register a slow growth rate during the forecast period.

Latin America is home to some major textile-producing nations, such as Peru, Brazil, and Colombia. Peru is South America's biggest clothing exporter, and it boasts of unique domestic raw materials, especially alpaca fiber and Tangüis cotton. Brazil, a BRIC country, has enormous growth potential in both its textile supply chains, natural fibers and man-made fibers. Colombia is also expected to witness great opportunities in the textile and fashion market. Meanwhile, the CAFTA-DR countries - Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua - are eagerly competing among themselves and against Haiti for niches in the US market.

Changing Dynamics of the Latin American Fashion Retail is Helping the Market Grow

Latin America and the Caribbean are emerging as potential growth markets, driven by the increasing domestic demand, economic growth, and purchasing power. Investment possibilities in Latin American countries, such as Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, and Uruguay, are abundant. The popularity of the American lifestyle and the strong influence of the United States on the culture and consumption patterns in Latin America wooed fashion names, like Tommy Hilfiger and Nike, to launch their retail operations in Mexico and Brazil. Spanish fashion verticals, like Inditex and Mango, changed the way people in Latin America shopped, pushing the domestic fashion retailers to focus on product quality and offerings.
