The creation of textiles and fabric from raw materials and their subsequent transformation into garments and other accessories make up the two main components of the apparel and textile industry.
The process of making clothing and accessories, such as shoes, coats, blouses, and pants, involves cutting textiles and other materials and sewing them together. Knitting mills, which are less well known, are also part of this sector.
The US Apparel market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
US apparel industry requests that Meta and Shopee be put to the list of fake products.
The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has been urged by the US apparel industry trade group AAFA to include Meta and Shopee in this year’s Notorious Markets report, which highlights online and physical markets that are allegedly involved in or facilitate significant trademark infringement or copyright piracy.
Due to little to no front-end verification, counterfeiters are successfully concealing themselves behind the anonymity offered by internet platforms. Unaware Americans and AAFA members are being harmed by the entire damaging digital value chain online. The issue of counterfeit goods has never been as severe as it is now.
The AAFA thinks brand protection for clothing and footwear is even more important now because supply chains are still constricted, inflation is still hovering around historic highs, and market research firm McKinsey predicts that online social commerce will increase US retail sales.
But AAFA member products continue to be the most often confiscated intellectual property (IPR) items by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
