This report provides vital data and analysis of trends in imports from the EU's ten largest supplying countries. Also, it provides insight and analysis of developments in the clothing sector of each of the leading supplying countries and provides a forecast for the future. EU clothing imports rose in value but declined in volume in 2015. Increases in clothing imports were observed in 22 of the EU's 28 countries in value terms but in only nine countries in volume terms. At the same time, there were increases in the average prices of imports into all 28 countries. Furthermore, average prices increased at double or triple digit rates in the case of imports into 19 of these countries. The EU's ten largest supplying countries were Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Morocco, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam. China was by far the largest supplier but the country lost market share in value and volume terms. The fastest growth in both value and volume was in EU clothing imports from Cambodia although strong growth was also recorded in imports from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Vietnam. As a result, all five countries gained market share in value and volume. The most expensive supplier was Tunisia, followed by Morocco. The cheapest supplier was Pakistan, followed by Bangladesh.
