One, small socks to achieve big market
From 1912 poor learning art the 12 sets of hand foot of hosiery machine, now has more than 1400 companies, 6 million units the world first-class imported Waji armed, Yiwu Hosiery Industry has gone through years of history, in the international and domestic market occupies a pivotal position.
Years of development, Yiwu socks industry has formed a clear regional advantage. Sophisticated equipment, advanced technology, production from Italy, South Korea and other countries of the well-known brand hosiery Yiwu everything, the whole industry has 507 patent technology; reasonable structure, balance between production and marketing, creative design and R & D capability strong, from product to packaging are in leading the whole sock industry forward; industry and enterprise brand gold content is the highest.

However, in recent years, affected by the economic situation at home and abroad, as well as Zhuji Datang, Yingtan, Jiangsu, Suqian, Jiangxi and other neighboring sock industry base of rapid rise, the Yiwu sock industry also began to face a lot of challenges.
Jia Wenhong, director of the Commission by letter of Yiwu believes that, despite the current Yiwu socks in the domestic and international market sales of the largest, but the profit margin is not high, some socks export price of only 0.8 yuan / double, only to earn meager profits. Some socks factory has no independent brand and advanced technology, has been processing for foreign brands. With the rising domestic labor costs, raw material costs, Yiwu hosiery industry profit space is gradually being squeezed, the competitiveness in the international market also gradually decreased in, which is not conducive to the long-term development of Yiwu Hosiery Industry must as soon as possible to enhance the core competitiveness of Yiwu Hosiery Industry.
