Shipments of other industrial auto sewing machines reached 270,000 sets to grow by 19.91 percent to reach $69.8 million and post an astounding growth of 78.56 percent.

Though off course demand from re-export markets fell considerably as demand in Hong Kong (China's Special Administrative Region), United States and other markets declined, as a growing number of sewing machine exporters choose to do direct exports. However shipments to Singapore maintained steady and rapid growth though exports to India, Indonesia and Japan fell to a certain extent.

Market demand in Brazil, Turkey and Russian Federation showed a strong growth momentum. Brazil tops from among all countries importing sewing machines from China. Industrial sewing machine exports to Brazil jumped up from fourth place in first half of 2007 to first place in 2008. Volume wise exports rose considerably to 59.92 percent while it grew phenomenally in value to 94.50 percent.
