Este estudio examina el impacto de la importación en el rendimiento empresarial de las industrias textiles nigerianas. El rendimiento empresarial se evaluó utilizando algunos índices de rendimiento clave como: el crecimiento de los ingresos, el crecimiento de las ventas, el nivel de beneficios, la contribución al Producto Interior Bruto (PIB), la tasa de empleo y la satisfacción del cliente. Este estudio pone además de relieve la situación de las industrias textiles en Nigeria. Para la interpretación de los datos se empleó un enfoque relacionado con el análisis de casos y exploratorio. Los datos se recogieron del Banco Central de Nigeria, el Banco Mundial, la Oficina Nacional de Estadística y otra bibliografía relacionada. Los resultados indicaron que las industrias textiles en Nigeria están disminuyendo en su rendimiento empresarial debido al bajo patrocinio de los consumidores que no están satisfechos con la calidad de sus productos. Las industrias se enfrentan a algunos retos y limitaciones que incluyen: la falta de fondos, la escasa infraestructura, las políticas comerciales internacionales y el comportamiento de compra de los consumidores.
