Research and Markets: Fashion & Clothing Retailers in Europe and Main Countries Worldwide


DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Fashion & Clothing Retailers in Europe and Main Countries Worldwide" directory to their offering.

The database contains ranking, profiles and all key information about Fashion & Clothing retail chains in Europe, America, Asia and Africa. The data includes data on turnover, number of outlets, number of employees, address information and information about the management.

It offers rankings for every country in the database and for each retailer a profile is provided. In total more than 1900 fashion retailers (national head-offices) are included.

Analysing Fashion retailers in Europe is not easy, because we see constant changes in the market. Although some international retailers gain importance they cannot dominate the market due to the large number of chains and new banners/ brands appearing each year. The database aims to keep up with all these changes and the fashion chains are checked several times per year. Each profile also includes Internet-shops because they show the fastest growth. In the beginning there was a quick growth of pure Internet retailers, but today the volume growth is made by the traditional retailers developing webshops and shopping concepts with combinations of online and physical shops (clicks and bricks). In fashion the main success factor online seems to be the fast logistics and flexible ways to return goods when not fitting or not meeting the expectations in any way.

The Rankings We Make Are Broken Down in 4 Segments:

- the real fashion specialist, H&M, C&A, Zara etc.

- the department stores, hypermarkets and others selling fashion.

- the pure Internet retailers, including the mailorder companies

- the manufacturers with many own stores, Levi's etc.

Retail-Index contains all vital information about international and national fashion/clothing chains, including data on their turnover and the numbers of stores and banners/shoptypes. The focus is on the fashion retailers in the European countries such as Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain etc., but most other countries are also included. Countries like USA, China, Japan etc. are shown but do not offer full coverage yet. All data are updated several times per year.
