Women’s, Girls’ and Infants’ Apparel Manufacturing in the US

The industry is experiencing contraction as most major manufacturers move production offshore to countries with more affordable labor costs. Significant import penetration will continue to impede revenue growth as consumers demand low-cost apparel. However, developed countries, such as the United Kingdom and Japan, will seek out high-quality American products, enabling industry exports to experience modest growth. Furthermore, domestic manufacturers will attempt to capture niche markets.

Industry operators manufacture blouses, shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, nightwear, suits, coats and other outerwear for women and girls. This industry includes women’s, girls’ and infants’ clothing jobbers, who perform entrepreneurial functions involved in apparel manufacture and complete tasks like buying raw materials, designing and preparing samples and marketing finished apparel.

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.
