International trade in denim fabric and denim jeans, 2020


Report summary

This report provides vital data and analysis of trends in trade in denim fabric and denim jeans. The global denim fabric industry has been negatively affected by a number of factors in recent years-not least sharp fluctuations in the price of raw cotton.

These have prompted manufacturers to use a smaller proportion of cotton in their denim fabric products and this has opened up new opportunities in terms of developing new fibre blends and expanding into new markets.

The report focuses in detail on the leading denim fabric exporting and importing countries as well as the leading countries which supply denim jeans to the EU and the USA. Countries analysed in the report include Bangladesh, China, Colombia, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Pakistan, Tunisia, Turkey, the USA and Vietnam.

Imports and exports of denim fabric were down in 2019 and, as a result, they remained well below the peaks reached in 2011. The world's top denim fabric exporting country in 2019 was China while the top denim fabric importing country was Bangladesh. Mexico was the largest supplier of denim jeans to the USA, but Bangladesh was the largest supplier of denim jeans to the EU.
