What is driving growth in the Global Luxury Apparel Market?

The global luxury apparel market has seen exceptional recovery since 2021, after the inevitable sales decline in 2020 due to the pandemic. This growth has largely been due to strong demand in the key market of APAC, with the lifting of restrictions leading consumers to spend more on luxury goods for events such as holidays and social occasions. This growth is only expected to continue, and GlobalData’s free report Global Luxury Apparel Market Trends, Size and Forecasts out to 2025, can assist companies in understanding the drivers behind this growth, as well as potential inhibitors and key trends affecting the market. Understanding these crucial elements will be essential for luxury brands and retailers to stay ahead of their competitors. This report provides comprehensive analysis of:
  • Luxury apparel market size at total, regional, and category level – with forecasts out to 2025
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Retailer and brand market shares, 2019-2021
  • Hot issues and profiles of leading brands
  • Key trends affecting the global luxury apparel market

The partnership, the two say, is coming together “at a critical time”, as, due to the global pandemic, “workers are simultaneously more isolated and connected than ever before”.

“At a time when state and corporate responses leave workers around the world in crisis — locked into dangerous working conditions or locked out of jobs with essential wages and benefits — it is clear we must work together to build durable transnational alliances that advance a new strategic vision with labour and human rights in the foreground.

“Progressive economy efforts can no longer be seen as a parochial, national issue. Transnational movements and strategic campaigns are fundamental to a future that includes decent work, development, and democracy in the US and around the world. Together we will strengthen the force behind these efforts by providing greater strategic capacity, support, and momentum.”

The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent responses from employers, corporate actors and governments have had a catastrophic effect on the health and livelihoods of more than 150m workers in global supply chains, the two organisations add.

“Workers have been left to struggle against vast structural inequalities, with women workers being disproportionately affected by this crisis. Yet, a gender lens on global worker issues has been largely absent from employer and government responses. Migrant workers have also been stranded—both at home and in destination countries— ignored and left out of recovery and repatriation programs and used politically to drum up nationalism and xenophobia.”

The merger will allow the two to use their expertise in campaigning for a living wage for all and considering ways to eliminate gender-based violence and harassment in the workplace.

“We will use expanded research, legal, and policy capacities to analyse global production networks, global financialisation and labour migration, and converge sharp strategies to support transnational campaigns. With our combined networks, GLJ and ILRF will be an important bridge between national and regional worker movements organising for change along global axes and across borders.

“As we join forces, GLJ-ILRF renews our commitment to bring strategic capacity to transnational organising efforts built along the levers of the global economy. And as our shared name highlights, we will centre labour, especially freedom of association, and collective bargaining in existing and new innovative forms.

“We are at a critical juncture. As the pandemic forces the restructuring of global value chains and labour and financial markets, GLJ-ILRF will continue to support workers organising for power and hold states, employers, multinationals, and their investors accountable.”
