SPAIN: swimwear business gathers strength

FIGURES released by the Spanish Statistical Office INE show that the country produced 4.4m pieces of swimwear in 2014, representing a value of EUR 52m. During the past five years the Spanish swimwear industry increased its exports by 50 per cent while imports of swimwear rose by only 12 per cent despite the presence in Spain of leading specialist chains such as Calzedonia and Yamamay. Italy, itself a major producer of swimwear, is one of the most important markets for the Spanish industry’s products and raised by 82 per cent in five years its imports of Spanish bodywear, including swimwear.

Official export figures do not take into account the probably considerable quantity of locally produced swimwear bought in Spain by foreign holidaymakers.
