In terms of quantities, US textile and apparel imports rose 39.03% during Jan-June 2022, compared to the same period of 2021. Apparel imports were up almost 24% during the period, while non-apparel imports went up by 46.34%. Productwise, surprisingly, fabric imports witnessed the highest growth of 122.01%.
