China remains king of global silk market

has dominated the global silk industry for centuries
, being the
world’s largest silk producer, exporter, and consumer. Today, the
country still accounts for over 70% of the global silk production and
90% of the world’s silk exports.

The economic growth of China’s silk industry has slowed down in recent
years, as have its silk exports. However, industry experts still expect
slight recovery from this industry. Currently, the country’s total silk
production is around 17,000 metric tonnes, and over 1 million workers
are employed in its silk industry.

Competition in textile and apparel industry
threatens China

China is the largest producer and exporter of textiles and apparel in
the world. While it has been suffering some setbacks in recent years,
the country’s textile industry is still going strong. In 2015, the
textile industry made up 7% of China’s GDP
, and the country exported
USD 11.53 billion worth of textiles.

The cost of labor in China has risen, driving some companies to move
textile jobs to countries such as Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Pakistan.
However, the country still has a great deal of expertise and resources
in the textile and apparel industry, and despite the increase in labor
costs, unit costs have only risen a small amount. Experts still predict
strong performance from China in coming years.

China leads global e-commerce industry

has become a global leader in the e-commerce industry
, with online
retail sales rising by 33.3% to exceed USD 581 billion in 2015. Sales in
the country are expected to grow by 20% yearly through 2020.

The market in China is being driven in part by the country’s growing
middle class, particularly individuals under 35. M-commerce is extremely
popular, and is expected to make up 74% of Chinese online sales by 2020.
Given these factors, e-commerce in the country has a very bright future.
