Fashion Maintains Its Share Of Spain’s GDP At 2.8% In 2019; But A Substantial Impact Is Expected In 2020

Fashion is fundamental to the Spanish economy, by contributing more than 2.6% to GDP in the primary sector. This is only slightly less than the 3.6% from banking and insurance or the 5.8% from construction, according to a joint report from, the Centre for Information on Textiles and Clothing (Cityc) and Accenture. However, the pandemic has sparked big declines in terms of activity, employment, exports and retail sales in the first months of 2020.
