2、 Import situation
In 2018, the import of knitted plush fabric still maintained a downward trend for many consecutive years, with the total import volume of 2.14 million meters, the import volume and import volume decreased by 25.49% and 12.90% respectively year-on-year, and the average unit price was 5.31 USD / m. This is closely related to the increase of varieties and quality of our country's production enterprises over the years, and efforts to improve the effective supply capacity and level of knitted plush fabrics.
In 2018, the global economic and trade environment is complex and changeable, and the growth momentum of the world economy has been weakened. In 2019, the textile industry will still face a complex and severe trade situation, but for knitting plush fabrics, especially high-grade artificial fur manufacturers, there are still favorable factors. For example, in recent years, more and more international fashion brands have abandoned animal fur products and switched to artificial fur. The British Fashion Association announced on September 7, 2018 that the use of animal fur will be completely banned in London Fashion Week 2018, becoming the first well-known fashion week in the world to abandon fur. The trend of encouraging designers to make moral choices when selecting materials and supply chain has created a good international public opinion environment and provided more business opportunities for China's artificial fur enterprises to explore the international market.
