Analyst Review:

Swimwear is a type of clothing specially designed for people engaged in water-based activity or water sports such as swimming, water polo, surfing, water skiing, or even leisure activities such as sun bathing. A swimwear is used by men, women, and children in such type of activities as it protects the wearer from the chlorinated water in swimming pools and from the sea water, which contains salts that can cause skin rashes. It is made by different types of fabrics such as polyester, nylon, spandex, and other blended fibers, which offers high elasticity and comfort. Swimwear is not only worn for swimming but can also be used as semi-casual wear for pool parties and at outdoor venues, such as restaurants, resorts, and shopping centers.

Increase in disposable income, improved lifestyle, and customer consciousness toward health & fitness are expected to boost the growth of the swimwear industry during the forecast period. Furthermore, adoption of the swimwear as casual clothing and rise in number of customers participating in various water-based activities fuel the growth of the swimwear industry.

However, volatile cost of raw material and high cost of designing, are expected to restrain the market growth. Several companies operating in the global swimwear market adopt product launch and promotion as their key growth strategies to sustain the market competition and to increase their market presence. Prominent companies, such as Nike Inc., Adidas AG and Dick’s endorse their products through renowned sports players; thereby, increasing their customer base. With changing technology and availability of variety of fabrics, companies are able to offer high quality and durable swimwear.

Several companies are proactively setting up new retail outlets, especially in the developing countries, such as India and China to expand their geographical presence and tap the emerging markets. In 2015, Adidas AG is announced The Original Swimwear Company (TOSC) as its new swimwear licensee and distributor for the U.S. to expand its market outreach. Exhaustive marketing campaigns by established companies have increased brand awareness in the global swimwear industry; thus, leading to the growth of the industry.
