Chinese clothing companies are trying to sell their wares to customers around the world, including the United States, through the internet.
But they’re struggling to sell the clothes, and there are some signs that the online sales will continue to lag behind what’s done online.
The world’s largest textile industry is looking to cut costs and cut production in an effort to compete with online sales.
But a new report says the company is struggling to keep up with demand.
China’s leading textile companies say they’re still struggling to make money from their online sales, even as they see a growing market for clothing in the United.
The country’s leading fashion retailer, Dior, said last year that online sales were down 3.6% in 2015 compared with the previous year.
It said the decrease was mostly driven by a decline in the number of orders it received from overseas.
The report from the Shanghai-based International Trade Institute said online orders fell 2.5% in January and February.
The ITC also said the average price of clothing online in China was around 8,000 yuan ($1,050) a piece, down from nearly 10,000 in the first half of 2015.
That’s a drop of nearly 25%.
The report also said online sales of clothing for the first time surpassed clothing orders in the U.S. in January.
The Chinese clothing industry has been hit hard by a global slowdown in demand for goods and services.
The country’s economic slowdown is also hurting sales in apparel and footwear, which account for roughly two-thirds of China’s retail trade.
The Shanghai-listed company Dior declined to comment on the report.
