Yarn Import into China

  • China imported 1,983 million kgs of Cotton Yarn (valued at US$ 5,460 Mn) from all sources in the year 2017, of which, import from India was 390 Mn Kgs valued at US$ 1,071 Mn.
  • India is the 2nd largest supplier of Cotton Yarn to China with a market share of around 20%.

Fabric Import into China

  • Even though China is the largest manufacturer of Fabrics in the World, it also imported US$ 7,901 Mn worth of Fabrics (of all fibres) in the year 2017.  Whereas, share of India was only US$ 96 Mn [1.22%], thereby indicating large scope to increase Indias market share with suitable marketing strategy.
  • Considering ever increasing production cost, including cost of raw material, power, labour cost etc., China is increasingly sourcing certain verities of fabrics from other competitive countries.
