According to MarketLine's research, the global apparel industry (menswear and womenswear) grew at a moderate rate in 2013. However, some major apparel retailers, such as Marks and Spencer and American Eagle Outfitters, have experienced decline in recent years.

Key to the success of companies such as Inditex and H&M is the fast fashion model. The fast fashion model was pioneered by Inditex, and deviates from the norm of the fashion industry's traditional model of seasonal clothing lines. This model has changed consumer behavior; consumers now expect new fashion quicker.

An economic recession triggers increased price consciousness among consumers. Many high street retailers have struggled during economic downturn and this provides supermarkets with the opportunity to establish their position as providers of affordable, good quality clothing.
