China remains largest source for UK apparel imports

Jun '12

China remains the largest source of textile and apparel imports of United Kingdom (UK), despite a fall in value and volume of imports in recent years.

But at the same time smaller rivals like Turkey, Bangladesh and a few East European countries are emerging as rivals to China’s numero uno status.

In the last few decades, China emerged as a one-stop source for retailers in UK due to easy availability of raw materials, low wages and many other factors.

But with increasing production costs, Chinese garment products are witnessing a slowdown in UK’s retail markets.

More and more UK retailers prefer to source their requirements from countries in East Europe and Turkey due to their proximity.
