The manufacturers of the textiles sector produce clothing and other textiles which enter into the lives of almost all persons on the planet. The sector is an important one for the global economy: in 2003 more than 140 economies produced clothing and textiles for export, and many are highly dependent on these exports for employment. The sector is also one of the most globalized: the series of steps in producing and selling a garment – fabric production, fabric treatment, cutting and final product assembly and transport to market - frequently involve international or intercontinental movements of products.
