Carpet Industry 2020 first quarter Report

Carpet Industry 2020 first quarter Report

The Ministry of Commerce announced the first quarter figures of the Turkish Carpet industry. The report, which includes production and export information related to machinery and hand-made rugs, shows the effect of the recent pandemic process.

The sectoral importance of the carpet, which is traditionally defined by the weaving method and today by weaving or tufting (sewing threads to a flat ground fabric), has resulted in one of the remarkable product groups in the world trade.

The carpet trade in the world is analyzed in three main groups, which are quite different from production techniques, investment trends, costs, consumer profiles, usage purposes, market structures and capital densities: hand-made carpet, machine made carpet and tuff carpet. While hand-made carpet exhibits a production structure based on motifs developed through labor-intensive and historical-cultural heritage; machine made carpet has a production structure that can be handled in the category of capital-intensive and technical textiles.

The difference of the machine made carpet as a result of the pile bonded on a thick floor is that it consists of pile warps in the warp direction. While knot is put on the warp with a separate thread in the hand-made carpet, the pile surface in the machine carpet is formed by the U warp bonding of the warp with wefts. Tufted carpet, on the other hand, is formed by the weaving of tuft threads on a previously woven floor texture.

Export

Our machine carpet exports are among our sectors that have been increasing for many years. Machine carpet exports increased from 2011 to 2014. However, in 2015, it decreased by 14.8% in terms of value compared to the previous year and reached around 1.7 billion dollars. In 2016, machinery carpet exports were recorded as 1.6 billion dollars with a decrease of 5%. When Turkey’s machinery exports in 2018 is observed that the carpet valued at $ 1.9 billion increased by 3.7%. Machine carpet exports, which increased by 11.3% in 2019, amounted to $ 2.1 billion.

When our machine carpet exports by products are evaluated; it is observed that the most important export product group is “weaving machine carpets”.
