Online Pureplays in UK Clothing and Footwear



Executive Summary

Online pureplays are forecast to account for over one fifth of total UK online clothing & footwear expenditure in 2014. The real success story of the past 5 years has been ASOS; however boohoo and Misguided are snapping at its heels. The continued strength of ASOS's online offer and high investment from multichannel players Topshop & H&M will limit pureplays' growth potential in the next 5 years.

Synopsis

By 2019, e-commerce is forecast to account for almost 24% of total UK clothing & footwear spend. For new entrants the relative ease of operating online compared to a bricks & mortar business has ensured competition online is rife; but the difficulty for online pureplays remains in building sufficient brand awareness & loyalty to become key players.

In Verdict's consumer survey, smaller online pureplays like Misguided scored below the average for the percentage of consumers who visited & bought from the retailer. Larger rivals achieved stronger conversion rates so investment is required to improve the online experience with live customer service & reviews to minimise abandoned baskets.

While the online market is far harder for pureplays toward the value end of the market, since they have to sell very high volumes of low margin stock to make a profit, and the cost of servicing deliveries and returns erodes margin even further, there has been more activity in this area compared to the premium segment in the past few years.
