Top 10 Apparel Exporters

Filed under: Tip of the Day

China flagIt’s no surprise that China has dominated the apparel manufacturing landscape, but could changing conditions like rising transportation costs cause a shift in power? Unlikely, but China’s loosened grip has certainly opened up more opportunity for other countries. This month’s Wearables magazine cover story “To Every Corner Of The World” examines how some countries are looking elsewhere to source garments. It’s a great read and answers a lot of questions, including: Which countries are apparel companies turning to now for production?

Read it now, and in the meantime here are the top 10 apparel exporters in the world. (Data from the World Trade Organization):

  1. China ($153B)
  2. Hong Kong ($24.5B)
  3. Italy ($23.2B)
  4. Bangladesh ($20B)
  5. Germany ($19.6B)
  6. India ($14.4B)
  7. Turkey ($14B)
  8. Vietnam ($13.1B)
  9. France ($11B)
  10. Spain ($9.3B)
