India Apparel and Footwear Market

With the Benefits of Try & Buy, Store-based Retailing Dominated the Market

Based on distribution channel, the market is divided into Store-based Retailing & Non-Store-based Retailing. Among them, Store-based Retailing witnessed a major growth in the historical years owing to the growing consumer preference towards the quality check of the clothes. In India, most people prefer to try on clothing before making a purchase, which has given physical retail stores a significant amount of importance.

Although the number of online platforms has grown since the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and is experiencing expansion in terms of reach, store-based retailing continues to offer customer-centric experiences. As a result, the growing expansion of retail stores & enhanced consumer preference to try on any apparel or footwear before buying to ensure the right fit & size are driving the growth of store-based retailing in India.

Rising Inclination Towards the Fast Fashion to Boost the Sales of Apparel

Based on the category, the market is bifurcated into Apparels Category & Footwear. Of them, apparel witnessed considerable growth in historical years owing to the changing consumer preference towards their clothing style & fashion statement. The clothing choices that were deeply rooted in the vastness & complexity of Indian culture are now aligning with more sophisticated & globally in-vogue styles. The transition is a consequence of Indian consumers' extensive exposure due to the rising urban population & growing social media influence.

As a result, more varieties of Indian clothing are getting launched, including formal, semi-formal, casual, athletic, ethnic, seasonal, leisure, party clothes, and others. Additionally, the majority of the Indian population is genZ, which likes to experiment with their appearance & follow the latest fashion trends. As a result, the market share of apparel has historically been higher than that of footwear.

Furthermore, consumers are becoming more conscious of their clothing & appearance and seem to prefer clothing, based on the situation, such as athleisure for sports and gym purposes, and formals for corporate meetings or college seminars, etc. Hence, the evolving customer preference for fast fashion would also boost the sales of apparel in the forecast years.
