Women’s, Girls’ and Infants’ Apparel Manufacturing in the US
The Women's, Girls' and Infants' Apparel Manufacturing industry is in a state of decline, as low levels of domestic product innovation and a decreasing number of industry operators have caused revenue to decrease. Over the five years to 2018, overwhelming import competition is expected to drive down industry revenue, as apparel production is moved to low-cost overseas manufacturers. The industry is anticipated to continue declining over the five years to 2023, with revenue expected to fall during the period. As US economic conditions continue to improve, IBISWorld expects domestic demand for industry products to increase. However, import substitutes will capture the majority of rising demand.
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.
