Clothing & Clothing Accessories Wholesaling in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Clothing & Clothing Accessories Wholesaling in Canada

The Clothing and Clothing Accessories Wholesaling industry in Canada has expanded over the five years to 2018. Despite the contracting Canadian dollar and the increasing popularity of wholesale bypass among downstream buyers, sustained economic improvements and the continued availability of credit has caused an increase in consumer demand for clothing and clothing accessories. This industry is composed of four different business segments: men's and boys' clothing wholesaling; women's and girls' clothing wholesaling; children's and infants' clothing wholesaling; and accessories wholesaling. Rising per capita disposable income and consumer confidence levels have increased consumer spending on premium clothing and clothing accessories during the five-year period. Over the five years to 2023, consumer demand for industry products is anticipated to rise further as economic conditions are projected to continue improving.

Businesses in this industry purchase men’s and women’s clothing and clothing accessories from apparel manufacturers and sell them to retailers, generally with minimal or no further product development. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers, marketing and advertising their products and storing and transporting stock.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
