Market Overview
Why Turkey?
In 2019, Turkey imported USD 2.2 billion USD of technical textiles. Technical textiles have wide applicability in Turkey in the automotive, construction, defense, aerospace, energy, and life sciences industries. There are also opportunities in Turkey for U.S. technical textiles machinery.
Why Germany?
Germany has become the 4th largest market for U.S. technical textiles. Technical textiles is the fastest-growing industry in Germany, with opportunities for U.S. producers of high-end, leading-edge solutions in key sectors, such as automotive or life sciences.
Why Czech Republic?
There is growth in the textiles industry in the Czech Republic for products to be used in the automotive, agriculture, healthcare, and aviation sectors. The automotive industry, in particular, is expanding, creating opportunities for supplying this sector. There is also an opportunity for U.S. producers of automation solutions to sell to Czech textile manufacturers.
Why Portugal?
Despite positive conditions in the Portuguese textiles sector, local production is small, and therefore Portugal imports from several countries, including the U.S. In 2018, imports from the U.S. of textile products specific for technical uses increased 80 % compared to 2017.
