Volume 1 Jeans and denim market facts and forecasts, 2005-2017
This 2011 edition of just-style's denim and jeanswear report has been split into two volumes. This volume (Volume 1) addresses the jeans market in terms of data and forecasts for US dollar values, units and prices from 2005 to 2017. Volume 2 covers and pinpoints jeans trends from 2010 to 2017.
In this volume, Chapter 2 summarises the just-style annual timeline from 2004 to 2017, while Chapters 3-6 deal with the years 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2017 individually and Chapters 8-9 compare and contrast the performance of sub-regions in Europe.
The jeans market suffered from the global financial crisis of autumn 2008. It is now experiencing severe cotton price increases caused by supply shortages. These factors have combined to make the value of the world market in 2009 more than US$1,000m lower than it was in 2004.
The data in this report includes an annual timeline, familiar to just-style report readers. It is the ‘bird’s eye’ view of what is expected to happen to a market over the long term, in this case the global jeans market value, units and price per unit from 2005 to 2017 starting from a 2004 base. In addition, timelines are provided for North America, Europe and Turkey, Japan and South Korea, and rest of the world.
Following on from the timelines, the report provides retail market values and volumes by region, consumption and price per unit, with analysis of these numbers provided for each stage in the time period of the report.
Data is provided for the following regions and countries:
Russia and the Stans
Southeast Asia and Pacific
Volume 2 Jeans and denim trends, 2010-2017
The 2011 edition of just-style's denim and jeanswear report has been split into two volumes. This volume of the report considers manufacturing and retail trends from now until 2017. Volume 1 addresses the jeans market in terms of data, offering forecasts for US dollar values, units and prices from 2005 to 2017.
In the apparel industry trends emerge and evolve over time, as distinct from fads, which are short-term and are driven by extraneous factors such as instant celebrity status and musical hotspots.
Consequently, this volume considers the trends over the period 2010 to 2017, that are likely to influence consumer demand from the supply chain forward first, and from the consumer perspective second.
Chapter 2 Fibres and construction looks at product development trends, and new fibre innovations.
Chapter 3 Weaving discusses three key issues: the price of cotton; the rise in wages in low-cost sewing countries; and the dramatic increase in sea freight costs. The chapter includes an exclusive interview with David Bardin, marketing manager, Tavex (Santista), a major denim weaving company.
Chapter 4 Jeans manufacturing. This chapter looks at Brazil and Colmbia as major manufacturing hotpsots, discusses the benefits of local facilities in manufacturing, cluster locations, tie-ups and partnerships, and manufacturing winners & losers.
Chapter 5 Denim jeans brands reviews the myriad number of brands and discusses aspects of design innovation.
Chapter 6 Jeans retailing discusses the argument that if jeans are to return to fashion in the sense of a wider range of styling and fabric offers, then it will have to come through a shake-up of the current retailing methods.
Within each chapter we consider:
geographic economic issues;
technology and innovation issues;
social and environmental issues.
