Clothing Retailing - Spain - November 2010

  • Spain is emerging from a deep recession. Given the problems of its housing industry, the recovery will be very slow.
  • The prospects for spending on clothing are therefore poor. 2010 should mark the low point, but we do not expect clothing specialists sales to exceed those of 2007 until 2015.
  • Clothing specialists dominate the clothing market. Apart from El Corte Inglés, which is classified as a department sore, other players are tiny.
  • E-commerce is not yet well developed and few of the fashion specialists have transactional sites although Grupo Inditex and Mango are notable exceptions.
  • Inditex dominates the sector with a 22% share of specialists sales. But apart from that the sector is highly fragmented.
  • However, the recession has hit the independents hard and will accelerate the trend to concentration.
