Executive summary | Industry overview | Supplier profile | Product gallery
China is the world's largest exporter of swimwear, accounting for approximately 70 percent of global shipments.

With steadily growing demand, exports continue to show strong growth. Most suppliers are anticipating overseas shipments to increase by at least 20 percent in 2006. Exports in the beginning of 2006 have already increased by more than 20 percent invalue.

In 2005, the country shipped more than 259 million pieces of men's, women's and children's swimwear worth about US$383 million. Exports increased 26 percent in volume and38 percent in value compared to the previous year.

The elimination of all WTO textile quotas in 2005 helped propel the US to become the top importer of China-made swimwear.

In that year, the US purchased US$79 million worth of the product, an increase of more than 500 percent in value from 2004.

Regionally, however, the EU takes the top spot with 92 million pieces worth US$128 million in imports. Germany, the UK, Italy, France and Spain are the main destinations for shipments.

OEM orders make up the bulk of shipments from China, especially those bound for the US and the EU. About 70 percent of the country's swimwear exports are for OEM clients. Many small companies devote their entire production to OEM business.

OBM products are shipped mainly to Eastern Europe, South America and Africa.

The following are some of the key trends we see in China's swimwear industry:

More suppliers are expected to produce upscale designs in 2006, mainly because of the fierce price competition in the low end. Makers continue to enhance models by using performance fabric, unique prints, beadwork and embroidery.

Buyers can expect more functional releases from China makers. UV resistance, shape retention and chlorine-resistance are among the common features that will be available in new products.

Many companies are upgrading their facilities to improve production efficiency and design capability. A number of makers have invested in advanced equipment from Japan and the US.

Women's swimwear will remain China's largest export product in the line. But more suppliers are venturing into the production of children's designs. The line has high growth potential mainly due to increased demand from the EU and Asia.

This report covers China suppliers that produce swimwear for men, women and children.
