This 2022 update contains analysis and insight into the USA's top ten foreign suppliers of textiles and clothing in 2021, 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 2022 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 2021 US textile and clothing imports rose in value to a record high—despite the fact that the rise followed a decline in the previous year, reflecting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. There was also a rise in US imports of textiles and clothing in volume terms and these reached a record high. Within the 2021 total, imports of apparel, fabrics and made-up textiles rose in volume terms to their highest levels on record. Imports of yarn also rose but remained below the levels seen in 2018 and 2019. The average price of US textile and clothing imports, meanwhile, fell for the tenth year in succession to a record low. This fall reflected a decline in the average price of textile imports as the average price of clothing imports remained unchanged. In terms of fibre type, man-made fibres continued to dominate US textile and apparel imports as a whole, and man-made fibre products accounted for the largest share of US apparel imports in 2021 for the eighth 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. Of the other nine supplying countries which ranked among the leading ten, there were double digit and triple digit increases in imports from all nine countries in value and volume terms. The fastest growth in value terms was in US textile and clothing imports from Honduras, followed by those from India, Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Mexico, but growth was more moderate in the case of imports from Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam.
