Rising import penetration has continued to threaten the Men's and Boys' Apparel Manufacturing industry in Canada. Imported clothing is more attractive to downstream wholesalers and retailers, posing a competitive threat to domestic manufacturers. An expanding export market represents a bright spot for the industry, driving a modest increase in revenue over the five years to 2017. Over the five years to 2022, revenue is expected to continue its historical decline. An anticipated rise in the Canadian-dollar effective exchange rate index is expected to reduce the affordability of industry products abroad, causing industry exports to decline. Conversely, the dollar's appreciation will increase import competitiveness, resulting in further import penetration into the industry.
