Quick Overview
The UK apparel retailing sector -- which comprises large retail chains, factory and designer outlet retailers, Internet retailers, value apparel retailers and discount retailers -- is highly competitive and dominated by big players. In recent years, value apparel retailers have been gaining a larger share of this market as consumers have been trading down in response to tough economic conditions and government spending cuts. This report analyses key issues and developments in the UK apparel retailing sector and market trends by retail segment. Also, it identifies the key challenges facing the sector in the light of an ageing population and changing consumer buying patterns. It provides an analysis of the sector’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), and features profiles of Arcadia Group, Marks & Spencer (M&S), New Look, Next and Primark.
