Cost Structure of Garment FOB (One case)

I was reading one document related to the apparel and textile manufacturing supply chain (Textile and Clothing in Madagascar). While reading the document and business stats, I found one table showing the cost structure of FOB garment items and the percentage of the various cost parameters of the total FOB (£10.84). I am sharing it here.

New businesses can refer to this data for their product costing and cost analysis purposes. The exiting apparel manufacturing businesses can refer to this and compare it with their exiting cost break-up. 

When comparing FOB and cost structure data with the above table, you need to understand the percentage breakup will be different for different apparel items. It would be different for different demographics.
