Denim Jeans Market Analysis:

This huge denim jeans market is normally segmented by price differences. And here I want to mention this thing that there is no any good logical explanation of the price up-charge. Although there is some value addition in the high price articles (adding some extra features like GOTS, wearable technology or UV protected etc) yet the offered value is not justifying the price tag.

As per the research, the worldwide total volume of jeans for 2017 is 1,959 million pieces with an average worldwide retail price is around US$29 per piece. Whereas the Europe average price is US$40 and South America and rest world has restrict on US$15-17.

If we review the consumption behavior of two major consumer market then figures per year varies. The North American consumers buy an average 1.4 pairs of jeans per person. Whereas, the European customers average consumption in denim jeans is around 0.6 per person per year.

The future of the denim jeans industry is quite hopeful and the experts are predicting gradual growth in this business. As per the denim jeans gurus, the growth rate of denim jeans business in pieces till year 2022 will be around 2,089 million pieces (US$ 59.46 billion worth) with an estimate growth rate of 6.6%. Although the new trends which are related to environment is really hot now a days. And most of denim companies are more curious about sustainability of their product and its impact on environment. The steps towards sustainable environment is healthy but cost incurring development. As it would definitely be a challenging for a big market which categorize under price conscious segment.
