FRANCE: modest rise in consumption recorded

THE LATEST report from the Institut français de la mode (Ifm) showed that French consumption of textile goods in April 2015 rose by 2.3 per cent in value year-on-year. It noted, however, that the April 2014 figures had shown a decline of 2.1 per cent against 2013. As regards distribution channels, the figures confirmed the continuing rise in sales by home shopping channels (+7 per cent) and the further slump in the business of independent specialists (-3.5 per cent). For the first four months of 2015, consumption of all textile goods has declined by 0.7 per cent against the same period a year earlier.


No significant improvement in consumption can be expected until unemployment is shown to have declined over two or three consecutive months.
