From:Date:2017/03/31 13:32:33

General

In 2014, the developed economic entities, represented by the US, slowly recover, thus promoting the global textile and apparel consumption, and further releasing the demand of international market for sewing machinery equipment. Taking up the new opportunity in international market, the export of China sewing machinery industry has created a new high. According to the data of General Administration of Customs, in the first 8 months of 2014, the gross export of China sewing machinery products reaches USD 1.564 billion, with a year-on-year growth of 9.26%. Generally, the export presents a stable growing trend compared with the same term last year.

Seen from monthly export condition, affected by the lunar New Year holiday, the export of China sewing machinery products in the first quarter suffers big fluctuations. Since March, the growth in international market demand improves the total industry export, and the monthly export maintains a year-on-year growth. From April to August, the monthly export value of China sewing machinery products has maintained above USD 200 million. In July, the export value is up to USD 238 million, with a year-on-year growth of 15.01%, creating a new high in the monthly export value of this industry. In August, the industry export suffers a slight downslide to USD 217 million, but with a year-on-year growth of 7.30%.
