March 28, 2008

The Weakening Business Climate
Growing concern about the 2008 general business picture is raising some new questions and fears as to how our textile and apparel industries will fare over the next few quarters. It's pretty clear, for example, that most consumers are beginning to tighten their purse strings - reflecting the negative effects of both the subprime mortgage meltdown and today's $3-per-gallon and higher gasoline prices.

Continuing cost containment could well be behind much of the 2007-to-date tolerably good mill performance. Indeed, with both industry fiber and labor outlays not that much different from last year's levels, domestic textile companies are managing to hold their own in today's competitive one-world marketplace.
