Apparel segment booms with a steady growth rate

The apparel segment in the Indian market has depicted a vigorous growth in the past few years and is expected to expand with a steady pace even in the future.

Mr Vivek Kumar, Managing Director of Images Retail Intelligence Services (IRIS) told Fibre2fashion, “The Indian apparel market as of 2007 was estimated at Rs1,224 billion of which men's apparel accounts for 40.2 percent while women and kidswear clothing command 34.8 and 24.9 percent respectively.”

When asked if the foreign premium brands were hesitant to enter the Indian market, Mr Kumar asserted, “Not really, as some brands have entered the fray, however, some bottle necks such as FDI, low levels of modern trade, relatively small premium market, in women's and ethnic wear are still prevalent in the domestic market”.

Moreover, recent studies have shown that the garment sector in India is growing at a rate of 15 percent per annum and is likely to touch about Rs20,000 billion by 2012-13.

Of the present, Rs12,000 billion apparel market, ethnic wear will continue to occupy a major share. On the other hand, the western wear segment of Rs24 billion, is about 12 percent of the total women's wear market and is also growing at a rate of 16-20 percent annually.

As a matter of fact, ethnic wear is declining by around 1-2 percent every year, but since there is an overall increase in the market, the drop in percentage will be adequately compensated.

However, the middle class population is expected to reach 41 percent of the total by 2025 and it is therefore anticipated to contribute significantly to the western wear segment in particular and the entire apparel retail sector in general.
