China’s share in EU textile imports on the decline: Euratex report

"China’s leading position is continuously being threatened with the arrival of low coast production regions like Bangladesh and Vietnam. A Euratex report states even though emerging countries are gradually gaining market share, it should be noted that some of the businesses are actually Chinese companies that have relocated. Mediterranean countries, which have long benefited from their proximity to the EU-28, have held the same position for the last few years. Contrary to China, SAARC and ASEAN zones have grown slowly but surely since 2010, improving gradually their share in EU textile & clothing imports. In 2017, these four zones still accounted for over 86 per cent of total extra-EU textiles and clothing imports."
