Intimate Wear Market Overview :
As intimate wear or apparels are worn as second layer of clothes, it is also referred as second skin. Predominantly, intimate wear is used to alter body shape and maintain personal hygiene. Initially, lingerie was a term for intimate wear worn by women. However, etymology has changed with the emergence of brands, such as Menagerie, that focus on the male intimate wear. Although intimate wear seldom received attention; yet the changing perspective of intimate wear from need-based to aspiration-based results in surge in demand for these apparels. The focus has drifted from only durability and comfort to fashion.
Factors such as changes in lifestyle, rise in awareness regarding hygiene, change in demographic dividend, and customization of product portfolios boost the growth of the intimate wear market. In addition, high fashion consciousness among women is also expected to propel this market. However, prevalence of dermatological conditions in some cases has affected the growth of this market. However, enhancing the fabric being used to manufacture intimate wear offers promising opportunities for the market players.
Furthermore, the market has witnessed a growth in trend of use of stretchable fabric by key players. For instance, Jockey is planning to cater to the rise in demand for stretchable fabric as the fabric offers extra comfort and fitting. Moreover, initiatives taken by government of developing countries such as India has made this market more profitable for market players. For instance, â€œMake in Indiaâ€ campaign by the Indian government attracts international brands to set up their manufacturing plants in India as this is expected to reduce the cost of operation. Similarly, the U.S. government has designed an innerwear equipped with sensors, to get data about fightersâ€™ wellbeing during war. These inner wears are designed in response to rise in rate of pelvic injuries among the armed forces at war zone. Use of manufacturing undergarments with such innovative concepts by industry players is expected to help consumers track health issues as well as provide extra protection.
