Our full table is available for download.

Average unit price of US apparel imports remained flat over the first six months of the year, reflecting slight increases in certain producing countries, by contrast with a small decline for other origins.

Overall prices fell in China, India, Indonesia and Pakistan while rising in Vietnam and Bangladesh.

This is however mostly due to higher polyester apparel prices in both countries whereas average unit value of cotton products was more stable.

China was able lowering its prices in man-made fiber apparel categories where its suppliers retain a decisive advantage.

Average price of Indian products by contrast surged in key categories of products, like cotton woven shirts for men and boys (340), also sharply rising in 347 (men/boys cotton trousers).

China kept its price advantage in a large number of categories, explaining why its market shares were far from plunging over the first half, whatever commentators said.
