Published: Thu Oct 10 2013

Overall expenditure growth in 2013 will be slightly lower than 2012 at 2.5%, due to easing inflation and a poor H1. However, volumes will pick up in H2 and inflation will stick around with more consumers trading up for added value. This report highlights which sectors are forecast to achieve the highest growth over the next five years and how the premium sector will outperform the midmarket.

Scope of this Report:

* Attain a better understanding of what opportunities remain from the online channel from our online expenditure forecasts and consumer survey data

Report Highlights:

The menswear market will outperform all other clothing markets in the five years to 2018. Interest in style and fashion trends has become much more apparent among males, driving volumes and expenditure growth. This is therefore an area of the market fashion multiples should be focusing on for added growth over the next five to 10 years.

The swelling number of lifestyle brands and the attractiveness of their offer will drive growth in the premium market, with its share of the market rising more than the value and mid market segments in the five years to 2018. Premium lifestyle brands such as Joules and Boden will satisfy the demand for buying good quality pieces for the family

With opportunities for market share growth in the UK becoming more restricted, we expect more fashion players and lifestyle brands to target overseas markets - both in Europe and further afield. Markets with most potential over next five years include Poland, Germany and the Nordic region while Eastern Europe is also becoming more attractive
