Competitive vendor landscape

The global menswear market is marked by the presence of both regional and international vendors. Some of the key vendors in the market include Gap, LVMH, PVH, Inditex, Nike, Kering, and H&M. At present, the key players dominate the global menswear market with their wide range of product lines and globally top-ranked fashion brands. “The intense competition in the market has resulted in the development of products with value-added benefits and multifunctional features and strategic pricing. The major players are focusing on market share in developing markets such as APAC and Latin America,” says Brijesh Kumar Choubey, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on consumer and retail.

They offer a variety of products in different price segments through third-party portals and their own online shopping portals. In the US, e-commerce sales grew by more than 15% from 2014 to 2015. Globally, sales have increased by close to 20%. Companies Gap, Inditex (Zara), Nike, PVH (Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Heritage Brands), Kering (Gucci and Puma), and H&M now provide customized and personalized services through their online retail portals.

Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube plays a pivotal role in increasing product awareness. Consumers today are more engaged in social networking and blogs, and vendors therefore prefer to use social media to increase awareness and promote their products.
