In this study is more focused to investigate the performance of 16 textile industries in Pakistan by using the macroeconomic factors which are gross domestic product (GDP), interest rate (IR), market capitalization (MC), public debt (PD), exchange rate (ER) and corporate tax (CT) with the duration from the year 2010 until 2018 to analyse the effect of macroeconomic factors towards capital structure on textile industries in Pakistan. The result of the study is positive relationship public debt with capital structure while exchange rate has a negative relationship with capital structure on textile industry in Pakistan.
