Textile Exports: In April 2023, Pakistan's textile exports recorded a significant decrease of 29.11% year-on-year (YoY) and 1.99% month-on-month (MoM), reaching $1.232 billion, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS). Cumulatively, for the first ten months of FY23, textile exports stood at $13.709 billion, reflecting a 14.22% YoY drop compared to the same period last year.

Changes in Textile Categories: In April 2023, specific textile categories experienced varying levels of change. Raw cotton, ready-made garments, and art, silk, and synthetic textiles witnessed month-on-month declines of 47.22%, 20.88%, 10.49%, and 7.89%, respectively. However, bedwear exports increased by 10.77% MoM, knitwear by 3.31% MoM, and towels by 1.02% MoM.
