Eastern countries prefer premium range, US generates highest revenue

Technology has enabled market leaders to offer trousers in a variety of styles and fabrics. For instance, trousers made of blended and manmade fabrics are in demand as they are easy to wash, dry quickly, resist wrinkles, and are also resistant to moths and mildew. They also offer the comfort of cotton without losing their appeal.

People in the eastern countries, especially from the upper middle and high income segments are opting for the premium range of trousers. This range is likely to flourish in future with new players entering the segment. For instance, men in Singapore traditionally prefer to dress in suits but the hot and humid climate is currently to opt for smart shorts, trousers and shirts.

In 2019, the US trousers’ market emerged as the biggest revenue generator with the girls and women category generating $37.962billion while that of men generating $34.311billion.

Advanced technologies, high quality fabrics to boost growth

The current trousers’ market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8 per cent to Rs 50,730 crore in 2023.There are about 60 regional and national trouser brands in the Indian market that are growing annually at around 30–35 per cent. India in the last five years has become one of the top trouser exporters across the world, although challenges like machinery advancements and cost-effectiveness have slowed down this growth rate. Known for its precision, India has a reputation for offering quality garments. However, the race to offer cost efficient merchandise and production of large quantity of goods are hampering the growth in this market. Other issues such as political unawareness and unfavorable government policies are also slowing down the growth in the export market. To resolve this issue, manufacturers need to adopt advanced technologies along with high quality and innovative fabrics. Only then will the market continue to grow.
