Apparel and footwear were hugely impacted by the lockdowns in 2020, with outlets closed for much of the year, consumers could only buy apparel and footwear online. In 2021, with outlets opening up again, value sales registered a double-digit value growth.
Due to the many competitors present in apparel and footwear, there is a fairly high level of fragmentation, with no one player holding a double-digit value share. Global players have a large foothold, including H&M Hennes & Mauritz and C&A Moda, and the strong growth of the leading players over the review period has come at the expense of smaller ones and has brought about more consolidation.
The notable trend among apparel and footwear specialist retailers is the rising interest in second-hand clothes and the circular economy. There are two reasons for this trend.
Apparel and footwear will register healthy constant value growth over the forecast period. The economy is expected to recover quickly from the pandemic and the standard of living for Slovenians is expected to continue to increase and drive value sales.
Fashion is expected to continue to become more casual, as remote working continues to be commonplace and also Slovenians strive to lead more active lifestyles. Footwear in particular will see a shift, with for runners increasingly accepted in work places.
Brick-and-mortar outlets will continue to be under threat. Now that many people, including many of the older generation, have shopped online for apparel and footwear, they will be happy to do so again.

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
