Women's Clothing Stores in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Women's Clothing Stores in Canada

Over the past five years, the Women's Clothing Stores industry in Canada has experienced relatively steady growth despite growing external competition and patchy consumer confidence. For instance, rising levels of disposable income and stable economic growth have enabled Canadian consumers to increase spending on a wide variety of both essential and nonessential goods. At the same time, external industries that also sell women's clothing, such as online retailers and department stores, have siphoned significant revenue from industry operators during the five-year period. In coming years, industry revenue is expected to continue growing as rising levels of disposable income and an expanding Canadian population fuel demand for women's clothing and apparel.

Stores participating in this industry specialize in women’s wear, including juniors’ clothes, misses’ clothes, plus-size fashion and maternity wear. Many retailers also sell accessories and other apparel (such as men’s and children’s) that are traditionally undertaken by industries such as the Men’s Clothing Stores industry in Canada (IBISWorld report 44811CA) and the Children’s and Infants’ Clothing Stores industry in Canada (44813CA).

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.
