The Uludag Textile Exporters' Association (UTIB) was established in Bursa in 1986 within the organization of the Uludag Exporters' Association. As of 2014, UTIB has about 1200 members.

Today our Association exports to all continents in the world, particularly to Russia, Germany, Romania, Iran, UK, Italy, Poland, encompassing an area of over 180 countries and regions; the total export reached $1.412 billion by the end of 2014. In recent years, the Uludag Textile Exporters' Association organized many congresses, workshops, International R&D Brokerage Events, represented the country in international fairs, invited buyers' delegations, set up trend areas, seminars, training sessions and other events. In addition, with the projects and activities it has taken on, the Association has been successful in being a model organization within the sector and for other leading sectors.

The textiles sector is one of Turkey's traditional branches of industry and it stands as one of the benchmarks in the success story of the country's exports. The Turkish textiles and ready-to-wear apparel sector as a whole is the leading industry to produce the greatest foreign trade surplus. In addition, with the employment opportunities it creates, it makes a significant contribution to combating unemployment and furthering the prosperity of the population. The Turkish Textiles Sector holds a special place in the world in terms of product quality, its capacity to be a leader and trendsetter in fashion and design and its use of the latest technologies. The sector is also a leader in terms of its share in GDP and in its use of local input; this characteristic of the industry forms the basis of its presence in global markets.

Turkey is sixth in the world textile sector in terms of its installed domestic capacity, fourth in the world in terms of number of spindles, and fourth in terms of number of rotors. Turkey is the biggest textile producing country on the European continent. It is the world's seventh largest cotton producer. The machinery park established for the manufacture of broidery and guipure for home textiles is the largest in the world. The biggest factory in Europe producing quilt covers is in Turkey. Turkey is also one of the world's three biggest suppliers of toweling. Turkey's share in world textile exports is approximately 3%, and 4.5% in home and interior textiles; its share in technical textiles is 1.5% (2013).
