The UK Premium Clothing & Footwear Market 2017-2022

Summary

Premium clothing & footwear market is forecast to reach £7.0bn in 2017, equating to 16.1% of the clothing & footwear market, up from 15.3% in 2012. The market will rise 3.8% in 2017, in part inflationary driven but also due to ABC1 shoppers continued focus and demands for design and differentiation encouraging them to trade up for quality and value for money.

Despite growing menswear investment from value players, male consumers, especially 16-35s, continue to have a greater affinity with branded clothing, boosting premium penetration. Indeed, 41.0% of male clothing shoppers bought premium clothing in the past year, compared to 34.7% of females. The premium segment of the total menswear market will reach 18.0% in 2022, versus 12.0% in womenswear.

Shopper demand for comfort and quality has driven spending on premium footwear, with penetration reaching 31.2% in 2017. The athleisure trend and consumers’ interest in health and fitness will continue to benefit the premium sports brands. Online multi-brand retailers continue to grow their presence in the premium clothing & footwear market. Amazon and ASOS are forecast to have premium clothing market shares of 1.2% and 3.2% in 2017- moving up the leadership board year on year. Their choice of brands and leading fulfilment offers will aid future share acquisition.

Ted Baker and Kurt Geiger lead the premium clothing and footwear markets respectively, with iconic branding, product design and innovation and aspirational store experiences making them go-to destinations among their loyal customer bases.

Nearly two-thirds of premium clothing & footwear shoppers consider purchases a treat, with the second most popular reason being gift giving. This highlights the importance of retailers ensuring the whole shopping experience is aspirational, with the store environment and service received of a high standard – and emulated online.

Over 81% of premium clothing shoppers agree that they buy premium goods because the quality is better than cheaper alternatives. As the return of inflation puts further pressure on margins, retailers must ensure that quality is not compromised. Instead, price increases should be hidden by adding extra detail or using better quality fabric to avoid direct price comparisons.

81.6% of premium shoppers said they prefer having a wardrobe of classic items they can wear year after year. While fashion is still important, nearly three quarters seek cheaper items when buying fashionable clothing. Having a signature style that retailers can apply to classic clothing and footwear is vital, with Ted Baker enjoying success due to its use of colour and print.

Cigarettes in Armenia, 2019

Cigarettes in Armenia, 2019 Summary The Republic of Armenia became an independent republic in September 1991. However, following the withdrawal of Soviet troops, a war erupted between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the long-disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, a primarily Armenian-populated enclave, assigned to Soviet Azerbaijan by Moscow in the 1920s. A ceasefire was brokered by Russia in 1994, but the dispute has not been properly resolved and the economies of both countries have been affected by the inability to progress towards a peaceful resolution. Armenia was shattered by a devastating earthquake in 1998 and, whilst the country has been relatively stable politically, a terrorist attack on parliament in 1999 left the prime minister and the speaker dead.
