China lags behind Vietnam in shipments of yarn machines

While global deliveries of yarn spinning machinery soared to Vietnam in 2013, they declined to the textile industry in China.

“The fall in shipments to the industry in China, reflects a shift in sourcing away from the country, and the falls extends to short staple spindles, long staple spindles, open-end rotors and double heater false twist draw texturing spindles,” says Textile Intelligence.

In the case of open-end rotors, fall in deliveries to the Chinese textile sector accounted for the entire decline in global shipments as deliveries to textile industries in several other countries rose strongly.

Overall yarn machine shipments to Vietnam soared at a quadruple digit rate, while in short staple spindles and double heater false-twist spindles, shipments surged at triple digit rates.

Textile Intelligence says these trends reflect an apparent shift in the sourcing of textiles and clothing from China to other countries in Asia, and Vietnam in particular.

However, China continues to be the world’s largest investor in textile yarn machinery in 2013 and it remained the world’s largest producer and exporter of textiles and clothing.

Furthermore, China’s share of world textile and clothing exports during 2013 was up from 36.1% to 37.1% as exports grew by 11.3%. In clothing alone, China’s share was up from 37.8% to 38.6% as exports rose by 11.2%.

However, the Chinese industry faces several challenges and clothing export growth is expected to slow to around 8% in 2014 and could slow further in future years. Among these challenges are, rising costs and increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Vietnamese clothing exports, on the other hand, grew by 19.3% in 2013, and during the first quarter of 2014 they were up by over 20% compared with the corresponding period a year earlier.

Vietnamese exports are expected to continue to rise at a healthy rate over the coming years and the Vietnamese government expects them to more than double by 2025.

The Vietnamese apparel sector hopes to benefit from a number of trade agreements and also from a diversion of orders from Bangladesh and Cambodia, where safety or unreliability issues are undermining competitiveness. (AR)
