​​Egypt is home to the only fully vertically integrated textiles industry in the Middle East, with the entire production process —  from the cultivation of cotton to the production of yarns, fabrics and ready-made garments —  carried out domestically. The sector plays an extremely central role in the Egyptian economy.  
It is the first in terms of jobs accounting for 30% of local employment. It accounts 14.4% of Non- Petroleum exports in 2013, according to General Organization of Export and Import Control (GOEIC).​​​
