Tactical & Service Clothing Manufacturing
The Tactical and Service Clothing Manufacturing industry expanded over the past five years, following many years of contraction. Industry operators produce tactical, service, uniform and workwear clothing for the government, consumer and commercial markets. The industry was able to benefit from recently renewed demand from the government market, where the US military and local and state governments ramped up spending on industry products following years of austerity. Additionally, the export and commercial markets were also slightly bolstered. Nevertheless, despite some recent growth, the industry is only a fraction of its former size. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to fall, as competition from lower-cost producers abroad will continue to pressure industry players.
This industry primarily manufactures tactical apparel for the personal, military and service (e.g. police and fire service) markets. Service apparel also includes garments made for patients, waiters and other service workers. Tactical apparel describes clothing with specialized functions such as fire protection, puncture resistance, high visibility and water repellence. The industry does not include manufacturers of safety equipment such as body armor and bulletproof vests.
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.
