He defines the commodity chain as “the range of activities involved in the design, production, and marketing of a product” Gereffi (1999) as cited in Eun-Ju Lee & et al. , Gereffi identifies two types of global commodity chains: producer-driven and buyer-driven. (Eun-Ju Lee & et al. ,)

The textiles and apparel industry is characterized as a buyer driven commodity chain, in which retailers and branded marketers are able to coordinate a global supply network and captue substantial portions of the value chain, Craig & et al as cited in Eun-Ju Lee & et al. ,. Lead firms in the buyer-driven commodity chain tend to have core competences in understanding end –user preferences, designing products wit the right distribution plan.
