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.
