Trends in the Textile Industry: Impacts on the Cotton Sector

M. Dean Ethridge


Three major trends impacting the textile manufacturing industry, from the global and the U.S. standpoints, are considered: (1) globalization and the information revolution, (2) trade policies and programs, and (3) competition within and between fiber groups. Effects on the textile industry are used to draw implications for the U.S. cotton sector that is competing to supply textile manufacturers.
