Product Overview   

Four times a year, Global Apparel Markets provides essential and up-to-date analysis and insight into the global apparel industry.

Reports contain updates on developments in the apparel sector, trade and trade policy, research-based information on individual market sectors, business news and expert opinions on strategy – to keep retailers, manufacturers and investors informed of the facts and figures which will affect their businesses.

Each issue contains:
a detailed research-based report or company profile covering information on sourcing, developments in technology, colour and/or fabric trends, market sectors such as discount retailing, or other issues which affect companies in the apparel industry;
a round-up of industry developments and innovations in the apparel sector;
a feature on trade and trade policy;
advice from industry experts on strategy; and
business news
An annual subscription to Global Apparel Markets is a cost-effective way to keep yourself and your colleagues informed about trends and developments in the global apparel industry. The reports are available on subscription in printed and electronic format.

You will also receive "Global Apparel Update" delivered to you by email, free of charge, once a month. This free supplement contains an update of business news as well as the latest product developments and innovations.

Individual issues are also available for purchase. Our customer service team will be pleased to advise you on the most suitable method of purchasing.

Electronic supplement
If you choose the printed and electronic option, you will receive an extra service. You will still receive each issue in printed format, delivered to you by traditional post.

In addition, you will be able to download PDF files containing the same information – but the PDF files will be available immediately on publication, so you don’t have to wait for the printing and mailing. You also have all the benefits of electronic files: instant access even when you are away from the office; convenient storage in your PC or laptop; portability; electronic search facility; and copy/paste facility.

This is what our customers say:
"Running the largest online global sourcing marketplace and platform in the world for the Textiles and Apparel industries means I need to keep up with movements everywhere. I find the Global Apparel Markets report from Textiles Intelligence to always be full of great information that confirms to me what I know to be true and tells me what I need to be aware of in the global markets that I might not be. I always look forward to getting it in the mail."
