Last year, the turnover of the Spanish sector of children’s clothing was 685 million euros, of which 203 were from export. And for several years in a row the annual increases have been around 30%. This puts Spain ahead of the traditional meccas of design and sewing as Italy or France.
Export figures of 2010 also marked significant growth in foreign sales with 335.7 million EUR and show that Spanish firms are offsetting the crisis and the decrease of domestic demands with exports. Italy, Portugal and United Arab Emirates are the major international customers.
Some of the brands with the strongest presence abroad are Bóboli, which billed nearly 8 million EUR to markets such as Latvia, Taiwan, the Netherlands and Peru, and Mayoral, which has 11 subsidiaries all over the world and 60% -144 million EUR- of its turnover in markets such as Mexico or Canada.
