This 2018 update contains analysis and insight into the USA's top ten foreign suppliers of textiles and clothing in 2017, along with more specific information on US imports of cotton dresses, cotton knitted shirts, cotton non-knitted (woven) shirts, cotton skirts, cotton trousers, cotton underwear, man-made fibre bras, 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 2018 and beyond, and a statistical appendix containing data on exchange rates and US imports of cotton coats, cotton pile towels, denim trousers, man-made fibre baby garments, other cotton apparel and wool coats. In 2017 US textile and clothing imports rose in value and volume terms after declines in the previous year although the average price of US textile and clothing imports fell for the sixth year in succession to a record low aided by declines in the prices of raw materials. Apparel continued to account for the largest share of US textile and clothing imports but this share was down to its lowest level in at least 27 years. In terms of fibre type, man-made fibres accounted for the largest share of US apparel imports for the fourth consecutive year. China remained by far the USA's biggest textile and clothing supplier.

Furthermore, China's share of total US textile and clothing imports reached a record high in volume terms although China's share in value terms fell to its lowest level since 2008. India, Mexico and Vietnam all gained share in value and volume terms. Meanwhile, Cambodia and Pakistan maintained their shares but Bangladesh, Honduras, Indonesia and Sri Lanka lost share
