The Textile Industry in South Africa


The textile industry has been in long term decline since 1994 as a result of trade liberalisation, the increase in cheap Asian imports, and declining competitiveness and manufacturing capacity of local players. The result has been the deindustrialisation of the textiles component of the value chain and a situation where the vast majority of fibres are exported and the majority of spun yarn and woven textiles are imported.



Masterplan


The decline of the textiles industry has created a policy dilemma - whether to provide import protection and reduce competitiveness of clothing manufacturers, or allow for rebated textile imports by clothing manufacturers and facilitate further deindustrialisation of the local textile supply. This dilemma may be resolved in the Retail-CTFL (clothing, textile, footwear and leather) masterplan, implemented in 2019. Mechanisms in the plan aim to reduce input costs for clothing manufacturers while securing supply agreements for local textile manufacturers. The plan includes domestic procurement targets.



Quick Response Manufacturing


Quick response manufacturing, driven by retailers and design houses, is placing immense pressure on clothing manufacturers to be flexible and to quickly respond to changes in fashion, style and design. The trend does not put similar pressure on the textile industry, but it does require a more rapid supply of raw materials. Global supply chain disruptions have presented domestic textile manufacturers with a unique opportunity to provide stock more quickly than international suppliers.



Report Coverage


This report covers the industrial activities relating to the preparation of wool and cotton fibres, the spinning of these into yarn and the weaving of yarns into fabrics for use in downstream clothing, textiles, footwear and leather manufacturing.

There are profiles of 14 companies including Standerton Mills and Svenmill, Gelvenor Africa, Yarntex and Samil Natural Fibres.
