Pakistan’s textile exports fall by 8% MoM in March 

PBS data shows exports also declined by 0.25% to $12.444 billion in 9MFY24 from $12.476 billion in the previous year 

Pakistan’s textile and clothing exports grew by 3.29% to $1.299 billion in March, compared to $1.257 billion in the same month last year whereas exports fell by 7.67% on a month-on-month (MoM) basis, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS). 

The MoM decline in textile exports in March 2024 marked an end to three months of double-digit growth, with a reduced demand from international buyers.

As per PBS data, for the first nine months (July-March) of fiscal year 2024, textile and clothing exports also declined slightly by 0.25% to $12.444 billion from $12.476 billion in the previous year.

The slowdown in growth has been linked to increased production costs due to higher energy prices and a liquidity shortage. 

The textile industry has cautioned the government about potential further declines unless issues such as unresolved refunds are addressed promptly.

PBS data indicates that exports of readymade garments increased by 3.92% in value and 19.39% in quantity in March.
