Mar '08
There is recession in the US cloth market, as a result orders to China have decreased drastically. Moreover, many American companies are now giving orders to other Asian countries like India and Vietnam.

According to statistics, garments produced in China occupied 30.77 percent of American cloth market in 2007. However, in December, the share got reduced to just 26.42 percent. Apparel manufactured in Vietnam occupied 5.90 percent hold in 2007, which rose to 7.16 in December and Indian share was 4.20 percent and saw a slight rise, reaching 4.48 by end of 2007.

Factors that are negatively influencing Chinese garment export to America, are RMB appreciation, increase in production cost and various policy factors. Even, the Sino-American agreement, regarding textile and cloth trade will expire by end of this year, affecting export of clothing to America.

Experts believe that, there will be downfall in exports of apparels to US in current year.
