EU clothing trade: main import partners ranked by value 2015-2017

Leading suppliers of clothing imported into the European Union (EU-28) from 2015 to 2017, ranked by value (in million euros)

EU clothing trade: main import partners ranked by value 2015-2017 This statistic presents the main five global import markets for clothing coming from outside the European Union-28, ranked by their value from 2015 to 2017. China ranked as the main clothing supplier, with imports to the EU valuing at approximately 27.2 billion euros in 2017. Among the various EU countries, the United Kingdom (UK) had the third highest value of clothing imports in 2016, following Germany and France. This is likely to be due to the prominence of leading clothing retailers, such as Primark and Next, which have a strong store presence in the country. As of September 2017 there were, for example, 182 Primark stores in the UK.

The United Kingdom also has a strong export market for clothing, albeit not as strong as its import values, with exports nearly doubling over a 16 year period, to 8.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2016.
