Better Industry Data
Keeping up with ever-changing textile and apparel trends is becoming increasingly difficult in today’s volatile world marketplace. To address this problem, Textile World is revising its regular monthly barometers table making it not only more comprehensive, but also easier to spot any last-minute shifts that might be occurring in key sectors of the industry.
Principle changes include the introduction of more detailed industry numbers on apparel — the key downstream market for textile mills — and profits, both in dollar and margin terms. Note, too, that more attention is being given to international trade and macroeconomic numbers that project the overall business climate. Do not hesitate to contact TW if there are any questions.
