At the world stage the market was 451.2 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% over the period 2020-2027. This growth is driven by the development of emerging countries, particularly the increase in their purchasing power. In particular, Asian markets accounted for 38% of the market in 2018 and are growing strongly. Furthermore, in Western countries, men's fashion is emerging as an alternative to an already saturated women's market, a phenomenon encouraged by the growing popularity of men's fashion.
