The clothing & footwear market will remain challenging in 2013, with overall growth lower than that in 2012 – though it will be more organic since inflation will be lower. With no events such as the Olympics to boost consumer confidence, most retailers will continue with heavy discounting in a bid to encourage spending.
The market will remain inflationary in H1 2013 as commodity prices stay high, with increased wage costs offsetting the benefits of lower cotton prices. Inflation levels will be more muted than last year however, as discounting will remain on the high street.
Volumes in Q1 will be boosted by an early Easter this year, and the momentum is expected to continue in Q2, as consumer confidence very gradually improves. While H1 2013 volume growth is much improved on last year, overall volume recovery remains gradual, and low single digit growth will not return until 2014.
