Overview of the Menswear Market in Germany

While the industry experienced menswear Germany market growth in 2022 – a result of pent-up demand during lockdowns – menswear in Germany is experiencing inflation induced challenges in 2023 as consumers are scaling back on spending.

Menswear Germany Market Analysis: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Menswear Market Germany & Sustainability: Sustainability will remain high on consumers’ agenda, but a better fit, inclusivity, and creative ways to make the purchase experience more enjoyable will be key to engage shoppers.
