The Clothing Industry in Angola


Angola’s clothing and textiles sector is small and there is significant opportunity for expansion on the back of the state’s current re-nationalisation of three large clothing and textiles factories and recent attempts to create a domestic cotton industry. At present the country relies heavily on imported raw material for its textile sector.


Retail


Only a few large clothing retailers operate in Angola and the retail sector is made up largely of informal traders, as well as clothing boutiques and online clothing operators selling high-end designs and second-hand clothing. The main operators include South African retailer Pep, Angolan Mega Cash & Carry, Candando Hipermercado and Retalho Especializado de Moda, which focuses on representing major international fashion brands in Angola. There are also several online websites.


Government Initiatives


The Angolan government has identified the textile, apparel and footwear sector as a priority industry in its National Development Plan and its Prodesi programme, which aims to support the diversification of the economy to boost local production by empowering the private sector and generating employment. The biggest threat facing the sector is the unfair competition created by the import of textile products by unregistered operators, and local players say they have been struggling to get government to create measures to clamp down on clothing imports and protect locally-produced goods through local production quotas.


Report Coverage


This report focuses on the clothing industry in Angola, and includes information on the country and its economy, developments including the reprivatisation of Angola’s textile mills and information on the second hand clothing market and competition from other countries. This report does not include profiles of companies in the sector, but does list the key players as identified by a government study.
