Apparel Producers Dealing With Price Pressure & Cutting Cloth Accordingly
03 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster
As the global recession hit home, the apparel market faced some difficult times. It has come out of it stronger but changed. The West remains chastened by its spending habits and consumers continue to seek out value, hampering growth. This is offset by the success story of the unstoppable rise of consumer spending in Asia-Pacific. However, all through the supply chain costs are an issue, which continue to drive efficiencies and shape the market for retailers and manufacturers alike.
The core objective of the report “Apparel: Dealing With Price Pressure and Cutting the Cloth Accordingly” by Euromonitor International is to examine the current state of the global apparel industry and determine the future opportunities within respective regions. It is the first report in a series of two global apparel overviews focusing on geographies. The second part will focus on category performance, competitive environment and distribution channels.
The analysis is informed by a number of factors, including shifts in demographic profiles, macroeconomic aspects and developments in consumer credit. As such, parallels with other industries researched and analysed by Euromonitor International are drawn where relevant.
Information from the following systems is used to inform the analysis in this global briefing:
- Countries and Consumers
- Beauty and Personal Care
- Consumer Electronics
- Packaged Food
Price is a key factor in the market, and there are rising pressures in many aspects of the supply chain. Therefore the issue of cost is acknowledged, looking at the implications for manufacturers and retailers.
With the growing importance of Asia-Pacific as both a producing and consuming region, the implications for the global market are examined to assess whether this is an opportunity for all.
The report does not claim to be comprehensive, but rather seeks to offer high-level insight into key developments and opportunities in the clothing and footwear industry at a time of continued macroeconomic uncertainty.
