Esquel, one of the leading cotton-shirt-manufacturers in the world came from China and it supplies lots of clothing brand such as Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, Brooks Brothers, Abercrombie and Fitch, Nike, Nordstrom and Lands’ End, in addition to private companies (Plunkett Research, Ltd.). However, due to the high demand of the US apparel stores for Chinese products, the low cost, which was the main reason why raw materials are being purchased from China, have increased. China’s competition is huge, with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Sri Lanka also producing material at cheap prices (Plunkett Research, Ltd.). The US apparel stores can instead purchase from these other Asian countries. It is hard to determine the exact number of suppliers in this industry; but, in general, majority of them are in Asian countries that can provide low-cost raw materials to US-based apparel stores.

Brands such as American Rag Chie, RtA, and AG are quickly developing strategies to sell high quality jeans to China’s large economy.
Every day millions of people put on their durable denim jeans without thinking where they came from or how they got there. When in fact those jeans have had had quite the controversial journey. There are two billion jeans produced annually according to the Environmental Justice Foundation and your pair is one of them.

The production of these jeans is such an intimately global event that we all play different roles in their production and consumption.

2.2 Local Capabilities Australia is a competitive market. The strength and success of local brands and designers have been well able to compete successfully against high-profile imported and designer goods. Internationally, Australia is best known for its beachwear, bushwear (e.g. outback, outdoor clothing), urbanwear and high fashion. Currently there are over 5,000 fashion labels in Australia6 7 and more than 2,000 companies export fashion. 2.3 International Competition China dominates the Australian import market due to its low cost. This has increased the pressure on local firms to compete on price. This has resulted not only in a contraction of the domestic industry but also in a new focus on specialization and innovation. The international fashion and apparel industry presence in Australia is noticeably less than other western markets, such as Canada or Japan. For example, large international firms such as H&M, Zara, Top Shop or The Gap do not have stores in Australia. However, as economies begin to recover from the global financial crisis, The Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Zara have expressed interest in the Australian marketplace. 2.4 Canadian Position Canadian fashion and apparel is regarded as having innovative design and quality. However, few designers and brands are well known in the Australian market.

Japan has been the second largest power in the world for several decades, now. As a quite remote island in Asia, its history and development shaped a country with its own way of thinking and behaving, and as far as we are concerned, with a great economy and a technological lead over its Asian neighbours.
Rivalry among existing competitors: The apparel industry is highly competitive with a great number of both local and global competitors. As the market is mature, its growth is small. Accelerated growth and expansion to new markets are not easy goals to achieve. The barrier to get out of the industry is quite low for distributors, but high for producers. Most fashion manufacturers moved their production base to low-cost countries like China as wage and raw materials in developed markets like Western Europe are high. Besides, there is no great discrepancy in terms of quality of products, so customers make their purchase choices based on price and brand recognition.
