A Breakdown of the Apparel Industry
The apparel industry consists of several distinct segments, namely the production and distribution of jewelry, clothing and accessories for men, women, children, and babies. Fashion products typically fall into one of the following main categories: casual wear, active wear, intimate apparel, formal wear, and outer wear.
Consumer fashion and jewelry preferences generally follow current fashion trends as well as economic and socio-cultural factors, and the fashion companies within the industry follow suit in their production and distribution of clothing and accessories. Typically, fashion trends and fads change quite rapidly, and because of this, apparel companies have to consistently modify the items they produce.
The fashion and jewelry industries are also affected by production costs, primarily the costs of various materials and workers' wages. It is thus common for fashion production companies to either focus their activities within a specific region or to globalize production in order to improve efficiency and keep costs to a minimum. Marketing strategies are also emphasized since the apparel industry is highly competitive.
