UK Clothing & Footwear Market, 2019-2024: Online Clothing Market will Rise by 27.4% Over the Next Five Years -

DUBLIN--()--The "UK: Clothing & Footwear: Clothing 2019-2024" report has been added to's offering.


The UK Clothing 2019-2024 report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the UK clothing market (including forecasts up to 2024), the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts, retailer profiles, retailer market shares, consumer data and future outlook. The report focuses on womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and accessories. Consumer data is based on our 2019 How Britain Shops survey, using a panel of 10,000 nationally representative consumers, as well as our 2019 UK clothing survey, using a panel of 5,000 nationally representative consumers.

The UK clothing market is forecast to grow by 6.0% out to 2024, a marginal rise on the growth achieved over the past five years. While we expect consumer confidence to improve as agreements are put in place for the UK to leave the EU with the retail market likely to see some benefit, we do not expect a significant boost to clothing volumes in the short term as shoppers retain their cautious approach to spending.
