"The UK Underwear Market 2018 - 2023", report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the underwear market (including forecasts up to 2023), the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts, retailer profiles, retailer market shares, consumer data and future outlook. The report focuses on men's and women's underwear, nightwear and hosiery. Consumer data is based on our 2018 UK clothing survey, using a panel of 5,000 nationally representative consumers.

The UK underwear market is forecast to reach £5.8bn in 2018, equating to 16% of the 16+ clothing market. While the sector has been protected to a degree given how essential the category is, the market has been driven predominantly by inflation since 2017, with volumes in decline. Volumes are however forecast to recover out to 2023, as growing consumer appetite for regular newness and more fashionable underwear, especially in lingerie, will drive spending.


- 58.1% of UK clothing shoppers have bought underwear in the past year; and women’s underwear is the most shopped category, aided by wider choice and greater trend-led ranges.
- The online underwear market is forecast to grow by over 40% over the next five years, equating to an additional £530m in spend.
- Despite losing 1.5 percentage points off its market share between 2013 and 2018, M&S remains market leader.
