Underwear Retailing in the UK - Verdict Sector Report



Executive Summary

Growth in the UK underwear market is forecast to pick up in 2015, up 2.8%. This will be driven by an improvement in the UK economy as unemployment falls and earnings growth exceeds inflation, easing pressure on disposable incomes. While a general upswing in consumer confidence will boost consumers' willingness to spend on underwear on a more regular basis rather than on a needs-only basis.

Key Findings

Identify which underwear sub-sectors to invest in by using the five year forecasts for lingerie, nightwear, hosiery and men's daywear and nightwear.

Maximise sales potential by investing in the most important drivers of spend and satisfying consumer shopping habits and shopper journey.

Glean which retailers are gaining market share and why, and use these success factors to inform your business growth strategy.

Drive higher levels of impulse driven purchases rather than replacement driven by targeting the right shoppers and growing ranges of the right product

Synopsis

Value retailers have been the real winners, growing their share of the UK underwear market to 28.1% in 2015 up from 25.4% in 2010. With the economic downturn putting pressure on disposable incomes, consumers shifted their spend to value clothing players lured by their much improved underwear offer and keen price points.

65+ year olds hold the largest share of the UK underwear market. However, expenditure is driven by an ageing population with spend per head being the lowest of all age groups. Retailers can target this consumer group more effectively by expanding their ranges to better support their needs, including plus size lingerie and support underwear.

55.7% of underwear shoppers say price is their biggest driver of spend in underwear. However, fit and quality also rank highly with shoppers looking for value for money, therefore retailers cannot simply rely on low prices to drive spend. Fit is particularly important for 16-24s, so young value retailers must consider introducing fitting services.
