Apparel and footwear specialist retailers struggled in 2020. Restrictions on social gatherings and the fact that many people worked from home resulted in many having less desire for new apparel and footwear.
In Pakistan, luxury outfits are a necessity for celebrations and festivities. While consumers once went to tailors to have garments made especially for the event, they are increasingly purchasing of the rack.
In a highly competitive and fragmented channel, apparel and footwear specialist retailers encompasses numerous international and local retail chains and independents, often operating with specific niches and product ranges. International retailers such as Levi’s are mostly focused on Western styles, especially in apparel, and local chains such as Ideas by Gul Ahmed are popular for predominantly Eastern styles.
Over the forecast period, apparel and footwear specialist retailers will increasingly focus on their online presence. Women in particular are becoming keener to find clothes online and this trend was further enhanced during the COVID-19 pandemic, when physical stores were closed.
Over the forecast period, the gas crisis will continue to have a negative impact on the apparel and textile sector. Such developments will affect imports and local production, which will then cause supply chain shortages and unit price hikes.
E-commerce will offer a challenge to growth for apparel and footwear specialist retailers as a channel but will offer a lucrative new sales channel for many of the players within the channel. E-commerce sales of apparel and footwear are expected to perform strongly, with many beginning to shop via this channel in 2020 as a result of virus concerns and continuing to do so in the forecast period.

Apparel and footwear specialists are chained or independent retail outlets with a primary focus on selling one or more of the following categories: clothing, footwear, and/or fashion accessories (costume jewellery, sunglasses, belts, hats, gloves, handbags, scarves, etc.). Apparel specialists include specialty apparel like wedding dress shops. Example brands include Primark, TJ Maxx, and Zara. Sportswear retailers, such as Adidas and Nike, are excluded from this channel and are included in Sports Goods Stores; this is due to the companies considering themselves sports companies as opposed to apparel companies.See All of Our Definitions
