Analyst Opinion

Women’s Apparel is the biggest segment in the Apparel market. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global fashion industry underwent increases in costs, logistic issues, and supply chain problems.  As per increasing costs due to inflation, both Zara and H&M, two of the biggest players in the Women’s Apparel segment, raised their prices. Although consumer demand is changing on account of the increasing awareness of environmental and sustainability issues, the segment is expected to continue to grow in the future.
