Trends in US Textile and Clothing Imports, 2009 Edition

US import prices rose for a third successive year in 2008, following several years of decline. The rise in 2008 was led by China. By contrast, there were falls in the average prices of imports from Vietnam and India--the USA's second and third largest suppliers of textiles and apparel respectively. China strengthened its lead as the USA's biggest supplier in 2008, in both value and volume terms. However, growth in imports from China slowed to just 1.1% in value terms--and in volume terms imports from China actually fell by 3.6%. Despite these developments, China's share of the US import market grew slightly in 2008--from 33.5% to 35.1% in value terms and from 40.3% to 40.9% in volume. The fastest growing supplier, however, was Vietnam, and the country became the USA's second largest supplier in terms of value. By contrast, exporters in Indonesia and Cambodia, two other members of Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), struggled to maintain their shares of the market. Similarly, in South Asia, US imports from India and Pakistan fell in value terms, although imports from Bangladesh increased by 11.1%. Imports from Mexico fell in both value and volume in 2008. The drop in value was the seventh in succession, while the volume fall was the fourth in a row. Countries which are signatories to the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) also supplied less in 2008, at least in value terms. However, imports from Honduras--the largest supplier in CAFTA-DR--fared well, having increased by 3.7% in value and 9.4% in volume.
