Cover image for Tomorrows apparel industry reportThis latest addition to the just-style portfolio of reports begins with a definition of nearshoring before addressing whether it has any future.

The report sets out the current landscape within the textile and garment industry where employment is less than half what it was in 2005, and most rich-countries’ domestic garment manufacture around a third of its 2005 level.

Without some dramatic shift in the global economy, there seems little chance of the apparel or textile industry in today’s developed countries matching the scale of the industry 30 years ago.

The report looks at the trends and reasons for offshoring having been the norm since 1989 and why nearshoring has now come to the fore and why manufacturing closer to home can be more profitable.

It touches on the effects of wages, raw material prices, energy prices, cost of capital, and the effect of these influences on export prices.


To conclude, the report focusses on four case histories to back up the observations made in the report.
