Textiles and clothing: household consumption in the European Union (EU28) 2009-2018 In 2018, EU households were estimated to have purchased approximately 520 billion euros worth of clothing and textile products. This marked a substantial increase over the period of time on display, if a slight decline on the year prior, when expenditure on textile and clothing was at 527.9 billion euros.

Textile production in EU



Across the European Union, the number of clothing manufacturers are in decline and turnover from these companies remain generally stagnant. That being said, EU as a bloc is the leading importer of textiles, ahead of the United States with its share of 23 percent of world imports in this category.

Textiles from China



Currently, the EU imports more textile goods than it exports, with China being the main supplier of textiles into the EU. Within the EU, Germany ranks as the leading importer, with a value of over 37 billion U.S. dollars worth of textile goods . Not surprisingly, most of the textile imports to come into Germany originated from China.
