The U.S. textile industry is one of the more important employers in the manufacturing sector, with 233,300 workers. The United States is a globally competitive manufacturer of textiles, including textile raw materials, yarns, fabrics, apparel and home furnishings, and other textile finished products. Our strength is in cotton, manmade fibers, and a wide variety of yarns and fabrics, including those for apparel and industrial end-uses.
Textile industry workers are highly skilled and the industry is technologically advanced, with investments of $1.8 billion in total capital expenditures in 2014. In recent years, U.S. textile companies have focused on retooling their businesses, finding more effective work processes, investing in niche products and markets, and controlling costs.
The industry is globally competitive, ranking third in global export value behind China and India. U.S. exports of textiles increased 39 percent between 2009 and 2015, to $17.6 billion. Our free trade agreement partner countries are our most significant export market: 70 percent of total U.S. textile exports in 2015.https://www.selectusa.gov/textiles-industry-united-states
