Emerging markets, such as India, Indonesia, and the Philippines, have a huge middle-income population which is becoming fashion conscious and seek branded clothes at affordable prices. This has resulted in astounding growth of online retail, fast fashion and value clothing & footwear. India is forecast to move up the order of the top 10 countries by sales, surpassing developed countries such as Germany, the UK, France, and Italy.

The advent of the internet has introduced international fashion trends to even the most remote locations, which is fuelling demand for the latest fashion across the globe. During 2015–2020, clothing and footwear sales will witness value growth of US$411.5 Billion, driven by rising per capita expenditure on clothing and footwear from the emerging middle-class cohort, young working professionals and expansion of the online channel.

As of 2015, clothing, footwear, accessories, and luxury goods specialists compromise the largest channel in the category at a share of 59.2% in global clothing and footwear sales. However, discount stores and online channels are growing rapidly and will increase their share in global clothing & footwear sales.

The US is the largest clothing & footwear market globally, with total sales of US$368.2 Billion in 2015. Low prices and high discounts offered by online and discount stores are attracting more customers in the US. Unfavorable economic conditions have altered consumer behavior and many now look for cheaper options. By 2020, China is set to close the gap with US$420.2 Billion in sales against US$420.9 Billion in sales in the US. Growth in the Chinese market will be underpinned by rising purchasing power of the Chinese middle-class population, growing fashion awareness, expansion of the retail network, and an increase in luxury spending. In the short-term, economic uncertainty and currency devaluation will affect consumer sentiment and spending on the clothing and footwear category in China.

Growth in global clothing and footwear market will mainly be driven by increasing demand from emerging markets, growth of value clothing and fast fashion, and continued robust sales from the online channel. Economic uncertainties in key markets will result in shoppers increasing their savings, driving sales for value retailers and discounters. On the contrary, clothing and footwear brands will increase their presence in high growth potential markets, such as India and Indonesia, with growing middle-income populations, young urban professionals and rising fashion awareness.
