World imports of clothing grew by a firm 5%, or US$17.5 bn, in 2008—the latest year for which global data are available—to reach a total of US$375.6 bn. However, the rate of growth in 2008 was much slower than in the previous year when world imports of clothing rose by a robust 11%. Imports into the world’s five largest individual clothing markets—the USA, Germany, Japan, the UK and France—rose in absolute terms by US$2.7 bn, which represented 15% of the total increase in global imports.

A breakdown by region shows that imports into Asia and Oceania grew by 4%, to US$62.9 bn— following average growth of 5% per annum between 2004 and 2007. Imports into Europe, the Middle East and Africa grew by 11% to US$217.4 bn—following average growth of 12% per annum between 2004 and 2007. By contrast, imports into the Americas fell by 1% to US$100.1 bn—following average growth of 5% per annum between 2004 and 2007.

As much as 30% of the increase in total world imports in 2008 was generated by the following 13 key markets: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Israel, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine and Venezuela.
