Women's, Girls' & Infants' Apparel Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Women's, Girls' & Infants' Apparel Manufacturing in Canada

Since the removal of apparel import tariffs on less developed nations in 2003, the Women's and Girls' Apparel Manufacturing industry in Canada has been in decline. The industry is now characterized by offshoring, import competition and a subsequent shift toward the production of high-end, value-added designer and handcrafted fashions. Since women's and girls' apparel manufacturing remains a relatively labour-intensive industry, an increasing number of industry operators are offshoring manufacturing operations. Due to intense price competition from relatively inexpensive imported goods, Canadian clothing manufacturing companies have reduced low-end apparel production. Companies that remain in the Canadian apparel manufacturing market mostly produce premium apparel for niche consumers. Over the five years to 2024, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to continue declining, as imports' share of domestic demand continues to stay high.

Industry operators manufacture cut and sewn blouses, shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, nightwear, suits, coats and other outerwear for women, girls and infants by cutting and sewing purchased materials. Manufacturers that produce knitted, fur or leather apparel are not included in this industry, nor are manufacturers of socks or hosiery.

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.
