Textile industry however is the most under examined industry across the globe in context of supplier development, therefore the textile industry of Pakistan to is highly under-investigated. The present study therefore is conducted with the aim of filling the gap in the existing body of literature and provide the basis for further investigation in the subject area for Pakistan textile industry. The findings are suggestive that cost, quality, service and responsiveness are the most important factors where determining choice of suppliers whereas the decision matric across product type for supplier selection varies greatly depending upon product type and industry factors.
