Apparels manufactured by knitting or knitting fabrics are known as knitwear. The global Knitwear Industry is highly divided by the involvement of many regional and domestic players. Market players are witnessing a fierce competition between each other on the basis of the quality and price of their products. Vendors are taking aggressive pricing as their core tactic to achieve a competitive advantage. Intense rivalry on the market has led companies to sell multi-packed goods at lower prices relative to competitors’ costs.

Market Dynamics

The global market for knitwear is driven mainly by a growing tendency towards a healthy lifestyle, the availability of a variety of products, and an increase in disposable income. The increased participation of young people in various sports activities, such as yoga, swimming, cycling, aerobics, etc., is another factor driving the growth of the global knitwear industry. In addition, the tendency towards a luxurious lifestyle generates demand for branded knitwear. Increasing awareness of the use of biodegradable products due to the growing demand for natural fiber knitwear helps the market growth. Tencel, for example, is a biodegradable fabric that is gaining interest in the global knitwear industry as it is eco-friendly and provides a high absorbing ability with anti-wrinkle properties.

Various manufacturers market their products across different distribution channels, like specialty stores, department stores, franchise stores, and online retailers, offering consumers a wide range of items. In addition, the growing penetration of the e-commerce industry is also anticipated to further strengthen the growth of the global Knitwear Industry. However, the market for knitwear is highly fragmented, as the lower-income population tends to buy products from the local market instead of buying luxurious and branded knitwear, which leads to intense competition for significant market share. In addition, production costs are relatively high in developed economies, resulting in high-end product costs, which are expected to reduce the growth of the global Knitwear Industry.
