Issue Week 50-2016

 Summary of news published since Week 49-2016

 

jpa4Sibil220THE GLOBAL growth prediction for the lingerie market made by Allied Market Research and reported here this week represents good news for the industry as a whole but will not prevent some less successful brands from suffering further setbacks. Regardless of whether a market broadens or contracts, there are always losing brands as well as winners. Together, the more successful brands tend to secure a larger share of the market whether it shrinks or it expands, which, obviously, leaves a reduced share for the rest. This means that it is more difficult for a label to accede to the restricted circle of brand leaders than it is to remain there. But it is far from impossible and there can be no doubt that the leading brands of tomorrow are to be found among those now struggling to join the top players.

PUBLISHED by Allied Market Research, a new study titled Intimate Wear Market Report predicts that the global market will expand at a CAGR of 7.2 per cent in the six years to 2022, reaching a value of USD 250bn. It adds that the Asia-Pacific region was leading the intimate apparel market in 2015, followed by North America. It also states that higher disposable income in the area, growing fashion consciousness among the young and greater awareness of hygiene requirements all played a part in boosting market size and that women accounted for 59 per cent of spending on underwear.

Considering that Germany has a much more limited coastline than other major Western European countries, the group’s performance can be considered excellent.

Currently, the highest bid of USD 66m has been made by Gildan Activewear in Canada but does not include American Apparel’s 110 stores in the US or the 83 others elsewhere.

It would have been interesting to learn what comprises the minor end-user segment since it is unlikely that there are enough ETs around to constitute a market.
