World textile and apparel trade and production trends: the EU, November 2018

This report contains statistical data, information and insight into the textile and apparel industries in the EU. The report identifies important trends, and includes information on general economic trends, textile production in the EU, the textile and clothing trade balance, imports by supplying country, exports by destination country, and trends in textile and clothing production by EU member state. The report presents a wealth of information and is essential for anyone who is considering sourcing from, selling to or investing in the EU and its leading supplying countries and export markets. During 2017, textile production in the EU increased for the fourth consecutive year, and exports of textiles to countries outside the EU increased in value and in volume. By contrast, clothing production in the EU declined to its lowest level in several years. However, exports of clothing to countries outside the EU were up in value and in volume. Meanwhile, imports of textiles and clothing into the EU were up in value and in volume, reflecting a rise in EU consumer expenditure on clothing and footwear.
