China to surpass US as world's largest apparel market

Apr '16
Annual clothing sales in China will exceed $300 million in 2019, up 25 per cent from 2014. In comparison, apparel sales in the US are estimated to hit $267 million in three years, meaning China will surpass the US as the world's largest apparel market by the end of the decade, according to a report by SinoInteractive, a China-based PR company.

The report, which compared industry performance in the world's two largest economies, says that despite the strengthening of the Chinese yuan and rising raw material and labour costs directly impacting the Chinese clothing market, China still continues to be a global leader.

Apparel made in China for US export has an applied tariff rate as high as 9.63 per cent for textiles and 16.05 per cent for clothes; free trade agreements under negotiation may see that be replaced by products made in Asia.

Sino Interactive took a deep look at the apparel exporters of China.

One of the rising e-commerce giants is Globalegrow, another is Sammydress.com, which aims to deliver higher quality fashion at a lower cost. In SinoInteractive's view, e-commerce giants such as Globalegrow (Sammydress.com), Alibaba and others will constitute up to 50 per cent of the global e-commerce market by 2018.

Companies like Sammydress work with numerous clothing factories and suppliers based in the south of China. The company enjoys positive reviews and has an international group of personnel which is the key to satisfying clients from different regions.

According to another SinoInteractive's research, there has been significant improvement even in the area of stitching which is indirectly contributing to rising share in the world's cloth Industry. Sammydress.com has started competing with local players. While Sammydress and other Chinese companies have received mixed reviews, Chinese companies have shown consistent improvement in the area of customer satisfaction.

SinoInteractive's research shows that there has been great improvement in quality based on recent surveys on Chinese Made apparels. The "Chinese Made" strategy is to deliver affordable goods to people in both developed countries and underdeveloped countries, resulting in China becoming a major contributor for global growth.

In 2015, there was a 23 per cent rise in Russian orders from the Chinese e-commerce industry compared to 2014. From November 11-26, 2015, there were nearly 10 million purchases made in Chinese e-commerce portals by Russians.

In order to overcome the supply chain hurdles, Chinese and Russians came forward and established multinational logistics at Khabarovsk to increase the speed of the delivery packages.
