Spotlighting the Clothing & Footwear market
The global apparel market is predicted to show continuous growth in the upcoming years. Research by GlobalData predicts that even though there’s a growing interest in streetwear and sportwear, the growth of the menswear apparel and womenswear will continue generating higher revenue than menswear and childrenswear combined. As consumers return to the office, greater numbers of brands are moving into new categories as they focus on creating collections that straddle career clothing and comfort.
Keeping up with the latest consumer trends is a non-negotiable aspect of success in the clothing sector. According to McKinsey, in 2024 consumers will show a shift in values. This includes increased travel which will influence shopping priorities, and an interest in creative influencers.
It’s no surprise that people will continue prioritising sustainability, pushing the industry towards eco-friendly practices. Brands who choose to incorporate ethical and environmentally conscious processes into their production will see heightened consumer favour.
As we evolve into the era of fast-paced technology, brands can expect consumers to seek innovative products like smart clothing and wearables, blending functionality with style. The year 2024 will be an era of uniqueness, as people seek personalised and unique clothing items that reflect their individuality. Brands offering customisable options or limited-edition releases cater to this desire for personal expression.
