Report summary

This 2019 update contains analysis and insight into the USA's top ten foreign suppliers of textiles and clothing in 2018, 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 2019 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 2018 US textile and clothing imports rose in value terms to their second highest level on record and in volume terms to a record high. Within the 2018 total, imports of fabrics, made-up textiles and apparel all reached record highs in volume terms.

Apparel continued to account for the biggest share of total imports. However, its share was down to its lowest level in several years. By contrast, there were significant increases in the shares of yarns, fabrics and made-up textiles. Meanwhile, the average price of US textile and clothing imports fell for the seventh year in succession to a record low—reflecting primarily a decline in the average price of imports from China. In terms of fibre type, man-made fibres accounted for the largest share of US apparel imports for the fifth consecutive year. China remained by far the USA's biggest textile and clothing supplier.

Furthermore, its share of total US textile and clothing imports reached a record high in volume terms, although in value terms its share fell. Cambodia and Italy both increased their shares of US textile and clothing imports in value and volume terms but Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico and Pakistan suffered declines. Bangladesh, India and Vietnam, meanwhile, more or less maintained their market shares during the year.
