The Sri Lanka apparel industry is growing strong year on year. According to the Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association, Sri Lanka’s apparel exports rose annually from US$3.16 billion (2009) to US$4.74 billion (2014). The European Union (EU) and the US are the top two markets for Sri Lanka’s apparel products, accounting for close to 90 percent of the total.
