Fraying: Intensifying price competition has negatively affected industry revenue

Firms in the Cut and Sewn Textile Product Manufacturing industry manufacture a range of household and commercial textile goods, including curtains and blinds, awnings, linen, sails, tarpaulins, tents, towels and other textile products. Industry operators have experienced difficult trading conditions over the past five years, as new free trade agreements signed over the period and tariff reductions on textile products in 2015 brought a surge of low-cost imports to the domestic market. Imports have increased steadily as a share of domestic demand over the period, taking market share from local manufacturers and forcing many to exit the industry. Industry revenue is expected to decline at an annualised 0.1% over the five years through 2018-19, to total $2.02 more.
