Online Pureplays in UK Clothing and Footwear to 2021: Market to grow to 2.5 Billion - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Online pureplays in UK Clothing and Footwear" report to their offering.

The UK online clothing and footwear pureplay market will grow by £2.5bn in the five years to 2021, reaching a 9.8% share of the total clothing and footwear market. Growth via pureplays will be driven by more regular online purchasing, aided by frequent newness, online exclusives and free and convenient delivery - with Amazon, ASOS and Very.co.uk forecast to grow share.

Key Findings

- The online clothing and footwear market is forecast to account for 24.3% of all online retail spend in 2016, making it the largest online sector ahead of electricals and food and grocery.

- Online pureplays will account for 27.8% of the online clothing and footwear market in 2016.

- Stores remain highly influential in the retail sector - especially for younger shoppers, with 80% of 16-34 year olds' spend made via physical stores. This puts online pureplays at a distinct disadvantage, and makes expansion into physical retailing more attractive.

- Shop Direct brand Littlewoods is on the decline with a forecast online pureplay clothing and footwear market share of 6.4% in 2016. With significant overlap in terms of product offer with its sister brand Very.co.uk, Littlewoods has lost relevance and destination status in the UK clothing and footwear market.

- Amazon is the best recognized online pureplay and remains front of mind for online shoppers, being viewed as a trusted brand. However, it has achieved somewhat limited success in clothing and footwear, despite a 57.9% online visitor penetration rate, owing to its focus on other products categories such as electricals, entertainment and homewares.
