Europe's Main Corporatewear Markets: Forecasts to 2010

published in Issue 91, January 2001  

This report focuses on changing trends between 1992 and 2000 in six of Western Europe’s main corporatewear markets - Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Scandinavia and the UK - and provides forecasts for these markets to 2010. Analyses are also presented of the markets for corporatewear in Italy, Portugal and Spain.

Garment sales increased sharply during 2000 in most markets, although sales are forecast to return to more normal levels. Nonetheless, the long-term prospects are for market growth, accompanied by changes in product groups, sourcing, supply and distribution.

The European corporatewear market is going through significant changes as demand grows for less formal and more fashionable clothing. Also, the market is highly competitive and offshore sourcing continues to increase as manufacturers try to reduce costs. At the same time, mergers and acquisitions have led to larger and financially stronger companies which are able to expand internationally and target specific market sectors.

Changes are also occurring in the supply process, as corporatewear manufacturers take into account individual buyers’ needs - whether this involves the simple ordering of stock via e-commerce or providing complete contract management. Furthermore, technological development is enabling companies to provide a faster and more reliable service to their customers.

Six times a year, Textile Outlook International provides up to 200 pages of expert comment and analysis. A subscription provides an overview of the global fibre, textile and apparel industries.

 company profiles – giving you the opportunity to learn from strategies employed by others. Companies profiled recently include retailers, manufacturers, innovators and sourcing companies involved in textiles and apparel as well as smaller companies which illustrate the opportunities for firms which are interested in selected sourcing locations.
 trends in world textile and apparel trade and production – taking into account current issues facing the industry – such as global fibre prices; competition from China and other low cost countries; the elimination of quotas and imposition of selective new ones; relocation of production operations; the impact of economic factors affecting trade; international trade agreements; trade promotion agreements (TPAs); and much more.
 trends in EU and US imports of textiles and clothing – providing comprehensive statistical data and analysis of the top ten supplying countries to the EU and US markets. These reports are updated each year and contain value and volume data as well as average prices and analyses of trends for up to 15 product categories.
