Rural Chinese spending on clothing rises in 2011
Aug '12
People in both rural and urban areas of China spent more on purchase of their clothing items last year compared to the previous year.
In 2011, people in urban China spent an average of estimated US$ 265 per person on buying their apparels, which was 16 percent more than the amount spent the previous year.
Similarly, the average amount spent on garments by people in rural China grew by 29 percent year-on-year in 2011.
This rise in spending by Chinese citizens on apparels will speed up the transformation of the Chinese textile industry, especially through upgradation of technology, innovation and branding, according to the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC).
To meet the rising domestic demand, the Council has charted out a plan to increase China’s textile and apparel industry production two-fold by 2020 compared to 2010 levels.
According to the Council, more effort would be required on design, research and development of the new products to meet the goal.
CNTAC is urging textile and apparel enterprises in the country to opt lower carbon production techniques for sustainable development.
It proposes reductions in energy usage up to 20 percent by 2015.
