DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dhfhqj/clothing) has announced the addition of the "Clothing Manufacturing Market Report 2014" report to their offering.
This Market Report analyses the UK market for clothing manufacturing, with particular focus on the value of the industry within the UK economy; its position within the international clothing industry; the leading competitors engaged in manufacturing in the UK; and the current and future trends and issues impacting the market. The market is most accurately approached in terms of womenswear, menswear and childrenswear, and companies engaged in at least part of the manufacturing process of the end garment.
This report estimates that the apparent UK market for the manufacture of clothing increased by 2.9% in 2013, as many companies have been reshoring production back to the UK in recent years. The majority of clothing sold in the UK continues to be imported from other global regions where production costs are lower, and the level of skill and quality of machinery is higher. Yet, rising national minimum wages (NMWs) in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and other leading international regions for clothing manufacturing have seen the prospect of outsourcing production become less beneficial to British brands. Ethical concerns in the international supply chain are also enticing more companies to reshore production back to the UK, following the Rana Plaza clothing factory collapse in 2013, which is regarded as the worst industrial accident in the clothing industry to date.
