In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the fast replenishment cycles in the apparel industry as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global apparel logistics market:
Fast replenishment cycles in the apparel industry
The apparel industry is highly dynamic owing to the evolving fashion trends that are driving the market growth. The hypercompetitive environment makes apparel companies incorporate new technologies such as data analytics and AI to assess demand. The apparel industry players use appropriate forecast and production as well as pricing software to meet these demands. The landing of products at specific stores or retail outlets can be ensured only through efficient logistics services in the apparel industry. For instance, apparel retailer ZARA pioneered the fast-fashion business model in which it brings products from design to stores within 2-3 weeks.
New players in the market such as Boohoo.com, ASOS, and Missguided are adopting this business model. Therefore, faster replenishment services are required to ensure all the demands are met. In the traditional method, apparel retailers used to restock their inventory two or three times in a year. However, adopting the faster replenishment approach, retailers re-order their inventory stock more than 11 to 12 times a year.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for transportation and distribution research, “The frequent replenishment cycles provide more prospects for logistics players for service delivery. Therefore, the faster replenishment trend in the apparel retail is driving the demand for apparel logistics services.”
