Abstract

In the past 12 years, textile and apparel imports have risen nearly six fold, from $4.3 billion in 1974 to $24.7 billion in 1986. During this time, foreign textile producers increased their U.S. market share from 5 percent to 12 percent while foreign apparel producers increased theirs from 8 percent to 24 percent.
