Jan­uary to Au­gust 2018

De­spite the on­go­ing trade war be­tween China and USA, there seems to have been no im­pact on Chi­nese ap­parel ship­ment to USA. China’s share in over­all ap­parel im­port value in­creased to 31.68% in Jan. to Aug. ’18 pe­riod from 30.74% in Jan. to Jul. ’18 pe­riod. Viet­nam, Bangladesh and In­dia, on the other hand, felt the im­pact as they lose share from 15.03%, 6.95% and 5.24% in Jan. to Jul ’18, re­spec­tively to 14.90%, 6.72% and 5.02% in Jan. to Aug. ’18. The data con­tra­dicts the re­port ‘Trade Wars, Brexit, and Global Sup­ply Chains’ re­cently re­leased by Asia In­spec­tion, Hong Kong, which says US ap­parel buy­ers are shift­ing to coun­tries other than China.
