Market Overview:

The global sweaters market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030.

However, synthetic fibers are expected to grow at a higher CAGR than other types during the forecast period due their properties such as durability and wrinkle resistance.

Global Sweaters Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A sweater is a knitted garment that covers the body from the neck to the waist. Sweaters are often worn over a shirt or blouse. They are often made of wool, cashmere, or cotton.


Cotton is a soft and fluffy staple fiber that comes from the protective casing known as boll that surrounds the cotton seeds. Cotton can be processed into a wide variety of products including yarns, fabrics, apparel & accessories, home furnishings & textiles and even paper. The most commonly used type of cotton in clothing is called G-1 which has high luster and good length.

Synthetic Fibers:

Synthetic fibers are man-made materials that have a similar molecular structure to natural fibers. The most common synthetic fiber is polyester, which was developed in the late 1930s. Since then, many new types of synthetic fibers have been developed; however, they all share a few basic properties such as high strength and durability along with being lightweight.

Application Insights:

Men application segment dominated the global sweater market, accounting for more than 55% share of the total revenue in 2017. The men¢â‚¬â„¢s sweaters are widely worn throughout winters across countries like Canada, U.S., and Russia on account of their functional attributes such as superior warmth to weight ratio and high durability. Moreover, increasing demand for customized clothing products is expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period. Customized products appeal a wider customer base as they can be made according to their specifications which includes color, fabric type and design among others.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period owing to a decline in consumer interest and preference for apparel products with low upkeep costs. However, increasing demand for stylish and comfortable clothing among consumers is anticipated to drive product demand from 2018 to 2030.

Asia Pacific was valued at USD X billion in 2017 as a result of high product penetration due to rising disposable income especially among middle-class population groups in countries including China, India, Bangladesh, South Korea & Sri Lanka which are major consumers of sweaters globally due to their colder climate requirements than other countries such as Australia & New Zealand who wear short-sleeved or sleeveless tops commonly called T-shirts or tanktops respectively throughout most parts of the year making them unnecessary during summer seasons hence driving sales overseas thereby propelling regional growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing disposable income of the population: The global population is increasing and with it, the disposable income of people is also rising. This is resulting in an increase in demand for luxury items such as sweaters, which are seen as a status symbol.
  • Urbanization: As more and more people move to cities, there is an increased demand for clothing that can keep them warm in colder climates. Sweaters are perfect for this and are becoming increasingly popular in urban areas.
  • Changing fashion trends: Fashion trends change rapidly and new styles of sweaters are constantly being introduced into the market to meet consumer demand. This keeps consumers interested in buying new sweaters, ensuring continued growth for the market overall.
