Trends in US textile and clothing imports, April 2021
published in Issue 208, April 2021
This 2021 update contains analysis and insight into the USA's top ten foreign suppliers of textiles and clothing in 2020, 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 2021 and beyond, and a statistical appendix containing data on exchange rates and US imports of cotton coats, cotton pile towels, denim trousers, cotton and man-made fibre baby garments, other cotton apparel and wool coats. In 2020 US textile and clothing imports plunged in value terms to their lowest level since 2009, reflecting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. US textile and clothing imports also declined in volume terms, but were still at their third highest level on record. Within the 2020 total, imports of fabrics and made-up textiles rose in volume terms to their highest levels on record, but imports of yarns and apparel declined. Indeed, made-up textiles surpassed apparel to account for the biggest share of total imports. The average price of US textile and clothing imports, meanwhile, fell for the ninth year in succession to a record low—reflecting declines in the average prices of imports from all of the leading ten supplying countries. In terms of fibre type, man-made fibres accounted for the largest share of US apparel imports for the seventh consecutive year. China remained by far the USA's biggest textile and clothing supplier, but its share of total US textile and clothing imports declined in volume terms and in value terms. Meanwhile, Bangladesh, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico and Vietnam all increased their shares of US textile and clothing imports in value and volume terms.
