US clothing demand continued to grow in the first nine months of 2007. Sales through clothing, accessory stores, warehouse clubs and superstores were especially buoyant. But US producers suffered badly. Textile output fell by 7.8% to its lowest level in 25 years in the first eight months of 2007 while clothing plummeted by 30%. As a result, 39,000 jobs were lost during January-September.

The EU trade deficit continued to worsen in 2006—despite a small rise in output—as double digit increases were witnessed in clothing imports from China, Bangladesh, India, Hong Kong and Indonesia. That said, EU exporters have been achieving success in East European markets such as Russia and Ukraine. Also, China became the tenth biggest market for EU textile exporters in 2006 as sales to the country grew by 20.8%.

Chinese exports surged in the first eight months of 2007 as sales to the EU rose by 21% and those to the USA increased by 28%—despite being restricted by quotas. Chinese imports, meanwhile, grew more slowly. As a result, domestic output was up significantly, as were added value and investment.
