Bangladesh´s textiles and garments industry contributes 13 per cent to the country´s total GDP. As one of the major sources of export earnings, this sector positions the country as the world´s second largest apparel exporter of western brands, after China.

Apart from the liberalisation initiated as a policy measure by the Government, two main reasons behind the phenomenal growth in this sector are: availability of cheap labour and low energy costs. Labour costs are only $0.23/hr whereas, in India, Pakistan and China the labour costs are $0.43/hr, $0.41/hr and $0.89/hr, respectively. Natural gas energy costs in Bangladesh are less than $0.02/kWh in comparison to $0.933/kWh, $0.672 and $0.784/kWh in India, Pakistan and China, respectively. Environmental and safety compliance has just started to gain attention, and past periods of growth can also be attributed to the moderate standards set for labour safety and environmental compliance.

Continued growth in this sector has also been facilitated by the trade encouragement policies of the western countries such as the WTO Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC), Everything but Arms (EBA), Generalised System of Privilege (GSP) in the EU countries and The US 2009 Tariff Relief Assistance. These policies have provided Bangladesh with huge potential in the global clothing market, especially in the EU and America.

Types of industries
The sector is mostly comprised of manufacturing in two major areas:
Textile: In the textile sector, the major industry is ready made garments (RMG). As of 2012 there were 5,400 garment factories in Bangladesh (see Figure 3 for past growth). The country has projected that the sector´s contribution will grow to $34.5 billion by 2015, adding 20.5 per cent to the total GDP. Bangladesh is the second largest garment exporter in the world and the industry plays a significant role in the country´s total exports. Leather industry: The leather sector is the fourth largest export sector by earnings, after ready made garments, jute and frozen food, contributing 1.54 per cent of total exports. The skin and hides of the country´s vast domestic livestock population, which are used as raw materials, and the low cost of available skilled labor are the two natural competitive advantages that the leather industry of Bangladesh has as compared to other countries. The annual supply of hides and skins in the country is about 300 million sq ft consisting of 63.98 per cent cow hides, 2.19 per cent buffalo hides, 32.74 per cent goat skins and 1.09 per cent sheep skins.
