Rising Popularity of Beach Culture and Water Sports Drives the Global Swimwear and Beachwear Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global swimwear and beachwear market is witnessing steady growth, driven by growing health consciousness, rising popularity of beach culture and water sports, increasing emphasis on active and healthy lifestyles, and continued innovations in swimsuit design and technology. Other factors driving demand in the market include growth of the beauty and spa industry, increasing life expectancy and the consequent increase in interest among the aged towards staying fit. Aging-but-active population in the US, Japan, and Europe as well as in emerging markets of Asia and Latin America, presents attractive opportunities for swimwear manufacturers.

Regional boundaries for fashion are fast blurring with increasing globalization where design trends have become more global than ever. Over the years, fashion, which was more concentrated on the element of style and innovation, is gradually changing its definition to the ‘comfort’ aspect. Increasing incorporation of the comfort element is attracting more consumers to swimwear. Women continue to be the larger buyer group in the global swimwear and beachwear market. They also constitute the highest spenders on expensive swimwear, while men continue to be price sensitive. The trend however, appears to be changing gradually, with men also beginning to show increased interest towards purchasing expensive swim and beachwear as the emphasis on aesthetics increases. Children’s swimwear category, on the other hand, represents the fastest growing segment within the global swimwear and beachwear market. High end designers, who earlier emphasized more on the women’s segment, have now realized the potential of this exceptionally growing market segment, and are designing swimwear for this category.

As stated by the new market research report on Swimwear and Beachwear, Brazil constitutes the largest market in terms of unit sales and the United States in terms of value sales. Asia-Pacific, driven largely by China, represents the market with the highest potential for future growth. China represents the fastest growing market for swimwear and beachwear, both in terms of value and volume. Growing acceptance of swimwear as fashion attire, increasing consumer disposable income, and growing influence of western culture, are some of the major factors spurring growth in the country.
