Full Product Description

In total, the 25 countries with a joint population of 4.7bn consumed more than 70m tonnes of textiles in 2016, while the remaining 2.6bn consumers consumed around 35m tonnes.

The joint market size of the 25 countries witnessed an average annual growth rate of 1.5% between 2005 and 2016, which is expected to accelerate to 3% until 2022.

The accumulated market size of the group of lower middle-income countries is projected to experience strongest growth by increasing their market size by 7-8% on annual basis each until 2022.

Similarly, the eight upper middle-income countries are forecast to see yearly growth rates of 1.5-3.5%.

The high-income markets are expected to expand no faster than 2.5% per year with the five countries presently within the EU to grow at less than 1% and Japan to decline owing to its shrinking population.

The forecast for future textile demand levels refers to GDP per capita projections in current prices in US dollars released by the International Monetary Fund in October 2017 and gives a brief summary of the economic status and development, status of the textile industry, trade performance, current news such as the renegotiation of NAFTA and Brexit, as well as climatic conditions.

The combination of such parameters is believed to deliver a well-grounded platform to predict future textile consumption levels.
