Women's & Children's Apparel Wholesaling in the US
The Women's and Children's Apparel Wholesaling industry has fully recovered from the recession. Downstream demand for apparel has been growing over the past five years, buoyed by rising consumer sentiment, culminating in higher consumer spending. In the coming years, increased demand from women's clothing stores and higher consumer spending are expected to drive revenue growth. Additionally, the world price of cotton is expected to be less volatile over the five years to 2021, declining slightly, which is expected to stabilize profit margins for this industry.
Industry operators purchase and resell women’s, children’s, infants’ and unisex clothing and accessories. Operators purchase apparel from manufacturers and sell these products to retailers, with minimum or no further development of the product. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities, such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers, marketing and advertising, and storage and transportation of stock.
