In Bangladesh there are about twenty five institutes which are producing denim fabric. But this is not enough as the requirement of denim fabric. We are in back position in producing denim fabric rather than other country. Beside ready-made garment of denim, if we want to increase our profit from denim section than we should try to increase denim fabric production. Because among all backward linkage (backward linkage means these which are related to make ready-made garments) fabric plays the vital role.

As denim product is a very potential part of garment sector so we should be more careful about it’s production. But for increasing denim related investment in textile sector there also should have proper gas and power supply system. And in that purpose Government should come forward.
