In 2015 US Textile and Clothing Imports Rose In Volume to a Record High

This 2016 update contains analysis and insight into the USA's top ten foreign suppliers of textiles and clothing in 2015, along with more specific information on cotton dresses, cotton knitted shirts, cotton non-knitted (woven) shirts, cotton skirts, cotton trousers, cotton underwear, man-made fibre dresses, man-made fibre knitted shirts, man-made fibre skirts and man-made fibre trousers. The report also includes an outlook for 2016 and beyond, and a statistical appendix containing data on exchange rates and imports of cotton coats, cotton pile towels, denim trousers, man-made fibre baby garments, other cotton apparel and wool coats. In 2015 US textile and clothing imports rose in volume to a record high. Apparel continued to account for the highest share of total textile and clothing imports, but this share was down to its second lowest level in 25 years.

In terms of fibre type, man-made fibres accounted for the largest share of US apparel imports in 2015 for the second consecutive year. However, there was a fall in the average price of US textile and clothing imports which was aided by declines in commodity prices as well as the appreciation of the US dollar. China remained by far the USA's biggest textile and clothing supplier. Furthermore, China's share of US textile and clothing imports from all sources was up in volume terms although it fell in value. Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam gained share in value and volume terms but Cambodia, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico and Pakistan lost share.
