Executive summary | Industry overview | Supplier profile | Product gallery

China, the world's largest denim garment supplier, produced 30 percent of total global output in 2004.

That year, the country's 4,000 manufacturers shipped US$1.8 billion worth of denim garments, mainly to the United States and Europe. Exports were up 10 percent over the previous year. They are forecast to grow an additional 20 percent in 2005 as demand for China-made denim garments is expected to increase significantly in the months following quota elimination.

Exports in 2005 could even be higher than the 20 percent projected growth, but suppliers are wary of being overly optimistic given the threat of US safeguards and recently imposed export taxes.

The following are some of the key trends and issues we see in China's denim garment export manufacturing industry:

The future of some denim garment suppliers in China is uncertain. Increased competition and possible US safeguards may significantly impact companies that embarked on capacity expansions. These companies might not be able to recover their investments in additional machinery, which they purchased to boost capacity and become more competitive.

Small suppliers that focus on low-end production will be the most affected by the new government-imposed export tax. In the keenly competitive free-market environment, raising prices to compensate for lost profits could translate to lost orders.

Many low-end suppliers are moving up the value chain, focusing production on midrange and even high-end denim garments. These suppliers are investing more in R&D in order to develop more upscale products.

These factors have also led many midsize companies to vertically integrate production and improve manufacturing efficiency. Most large companies already conduct most, if not all, production processes in-house. Doing so has given these large companies a little more room to absorb unforeseen additional costs, such as export taxes.

Nearly all denim garment manufacturers in China produce jeans, and most of them also offer shorts, skirts, dresses and shirts. All of the companies featured in this report offer jeans as their main product line. At some companies, jeans account for about 90 percent of total production.

Jeans and shorts account for 64 percent of the denim garment exports by suppliers in this report. Jackets make up 16 percent, skirts and dresses 13 percent and shirts 7 percent.

The Products & Prices section explains the differences among low-end, midrange and high-end denim garments in each product category, including price ranges. The Manufacturing module discusses the different washing methods done at the factories and reviews quality standards followed by China suppliers. The fabrics section details fabric weights and fiber blends used by suppliers and how the use of functional fibers affects product performance and price.
