Description

As in previous years, the focus of the European clothing report is the clothing specialists, because these are the dominant players in the sector. Nevertheless, for each country in this report we provide total consumer spending data for clothing – which includes expenditure through all channels. And we include Mintel’s Channels of Distribution estimates for each European country (Poland excepted), which indicates how this spending is distributed by type of retailer.

The report includes an examination of the following:

  • background economic and demographic data
  • market sizes
  • regional retailing trends and issues
  • market drivers
  • consumer expenditure
  • consumer trends
  • leading pan-European retailers
  • domestic retailers
  • market forecasts
