The development of China's textile industry has undergone various stages of development with different characteristics. Since entering the 21st century, China's textile industry has promoted its structural adjustment and industrial upgrading in accordance with the requirements of industrialization, across the whole value chain from fibre to apparel, home textiles, and industrial end products.

The manufacturing industry has achieved successful development through continuous improvement and at the same time improved its international competitiveness, while sustaining a rapid development. From 2000 to 2007, the average annual growth rate of industrial added value of large-scale textile enterprises reached 20.4 percent.

In 2007, the industrial added value of the textile industry was 812.6 billion Yuan, accounting for 6.9 percent of national industrial added value and 3.3 percent of national GDP. China stands first across the globe in production of many textile raw materials like chemical fibre, yarn, cloth, woolen, silk fabrics and garments and making important contribution to the rising standards of living of Chinese people.

Exports from the textile and garment sector is increasing with each passing year and today Chinese textiles and apparels account for 30 percent of all global exports and has stood first amongst all exporting countries for the last 10 years. Home textiles and industrial textiles become growth points of the industry, their applications have been expanded to aviation, aerospace, water conservancy, agriculture, transportation, medical and many other fields.

From the machinery and equipment point of view, one-third of the technology and equipment in textile enterprises have reach advanced international level and in some machineries like automatic winding equipment, shuttle less loom, and spinning have reached 51.4 percent, 47.5 percent and 41.1 percent.

From the view of employment creation, in 2008, above-scale textile enterprises employed 11 million workers, accounting for 14 percent of the national industries, while the industry as a whole provides employment to 20 million, of which, 80 percent were rural labourers. In all they received 250 billion Yuan in wages from the textile industry per year, which in turn helped raise the standard of living of more than 10 million rural families.

China's agricultural production of cotton, hemp, silk, wool and other natural fibers are essentially consumed by the textile industry, which is directly related to the livelihood of 100 million farmers. The textile industry has no doubt played an irrevocable role in alleviating poverty and to a great extent solving China's rural problems.
