Over the past five years, Costume and Team Uniform Manufacturing industry revenue has grown slowly due to intense import competition. International manufacturers with substantially lower costs have increasingly supplanted domestically made goods, leading some operators to shift focus onto higher value-added products. For instance, theatrical costumes, which require greater skill and attention to detail to create, have climbed as a share of industry revenue, while the manufacture of infant clothing and other lower-value industry products has increasingly been offshored. Over the next five years, these trends are expected to continue, allowing only slight revenue growth over the period.
