China, one of the largest exporters of clothing, saw export declines of 22.4 percent in Germany and 14.0 percent in France, while exports increased to its other eight largest markets. Export growth was strong in the Middle East, Asia and South America. Manufacturers based in India saw export decline in eight of its 10 largest markets in 2012.
