Sustainability concerns amongst local consumers have moved further into focus in recent years, sparking regulatory developments that will likely drive retailer change. In March 2022, the European Union announced its EU Strategy for Sustainable & Circular Textiles initiative, which is currently being negotiated by EU member states, and aims to ensure that by 2030 textiles sold across the EU will be made as much as possible from recycled fibres, while also cutting down on the amount of hazardous microplastics they contain.
A steady increase in the number of apparel and footwear specialist outlets is expected over the forecast period. While the pandemic accelerated many retailers’ efforts to adopt omnichannel models, physical outlets remain key for the industry thanks to the strong consumer desire to try on clothes and browse.
While retail e-commerce sales of apparel and footwear continued to rise in 2022, growth was dampened by the reopening of bricks-and-mortar stores after COVID-19 restrictions eased. Nonetheless, growth continued and it is expected that the shift in consumer behaviour towards e-commerce will remain relevant and shape channel activity over 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
