The textile market is truly global. Brands are shopping around the globe for the 'latest and greatest' yarns and textiles, and the market itself is currently worth in excess of $440 billion per year, with about 20% of that figure coming from China.
Many issues are impacting this industry, such as the ending of the quota system in 2004, which has changed where production occurs, how supply chains operate as well as affecting prices at all levels.

This includes everyone from fibres and fabric producers to end retailers that need to determine how to get products to consumers more quickly and with better quality.
