Chinese home textile exports down 0.2% in first 11 months of 2023

In the first 11 months of 2023, Chinese home textile exports totaled US $30.09 billion, down a marginal 0.2 percent, year over year, but a significant increase of 17.3 percent over the same months of 2019, the months before the pandemic.

The home textile division of China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile Products, which released the data, said that the industry, which is under pressure, once again showed its resilience.

“Chinese home textile companies are accelerating their overseas market strategies and supplying excellent product quality and design concepts, which has led to exports soaring over pre-pandemic levels,” the trade body said.

“Under the situation of weakening overall textile and clothing exports in 2023, the export performance of home textiles is the most stable among all major categories of textile and garment products,” the association stated.

From January to November 2023, except for towel exports, which showed a significant decline, the exports of other major product categories showed positive growth or a slight decline.

Specifically, exports of bedding products were $12.72 billion, a slight decrease of 1.5 percent year-on-year, while exports of blankets were $4.08 billion, again a marginal decline of 0.3 percent.

Exports of carpets stood at $3.66 billion, up 4.6 percent; exports of kitchen textiles were $2.67 billion, an increase of 8.4 percent, while curtain exports amounted to $2.59 billion, a slight decrease of 1.6 percent.

In the period under review, only towel exports, which were $2.01 billion, showed a higher drop of 7.8 year on year, while tablecloth exports were $730 million, an increase of 3.8 percent.
