Average Price of Imports of Women’s Jeans into USA from Bangladesh from the year 2009-2015

Analyzing the share of China and Bangladesh in the total imports by USA, it is found that where  Bangladesh managed to increase its share by the end of every year , the share of China seems to be inconsistent and on average it reduced from 31.13% in 2010 to 28.33% in 2015. However the share of Bangladesh increased marginally from 13.26% in 2010 to 14.26% in 2015. Interestingly, the total exports  by Bangladesh reduced from 79.48 million pcs in 2010 to million pcs to 67.02 million pcs in 2015. This was in line with the general reduction in the overall volume of imports of denim apparel into US. However, this is not the case for all countries. Some countries like Vietnam have shown remarkable improvements in exports of apparel to US during the same period.
