WASHINGTON: Restrictions, new-filed petitions and uncertainty caused a downfall in Chinese export of yarns, fabrics and apparels to USA during September this year. According to preliminary data of imports released by the US Department of Commerce show a fall of China’s market share.
Category 200 and 201, 300 and 301 & 400 show a big downfall in quantity. However category 600 (textured filament yarn) bucked the trend with shipment increased by more than 66%.
In comparison to August, except category 222 (Knit Fabric), 225(Blue Denim Fabric), 613 (Sheeting Fabric) and 614(MMF Poplin & Broadcloth Fabric), all major categories in fabric are falling in volume terms.
Very few categories in apparel segment bucked the September trend. China's share in cotton and man-made fibre (MMF) categories continued to fall during September.
The absence of a Sino-US deal on textiles is causing uncertainty amongst US buyers. Future imports into the US from China likely to be hit as result, whilst US buyers are looking for alternative suppliers in the meantime to ease uncertainty.See: US import from China in September 2005
