"Jeans in the United Arab Emirates" Published

New Consumer Goods market report from Euromonitor International: "Jeans in the United Arab Emirates"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/21/2014 -- Jeans stagnated in terms of growth over the last few years of the review period, with only the growing appetite for luxury and premium clothing items driving growth within certain jeans categories in the UAE. Increasing competition amongst distributors is forcing heavy discounts that are reflected in lower overall value sales growth for jeans. There is also increasing competition from other casual wear offerings as consumers diversify their purchases. Thus, overall growth in value sales terms within jeans is principally driven by the increasing popularity of high-end jeans.

Competitive Landscape

Al Sawani Group continues to lead jeans in terms of value sales; with a 9% share of sales for its Levi?s brand, and 4% with its Replay brand. Azadea Group is the second leading firm with a 4% share of category value with the Zara brand and almost 1% with the Massimo Dutti brand. M H Alshaya Co is the third leading company with a 2% share of value for American Eagle Outfitters and a 2% share for the H&M brand. Al Tayer Group comes fourth in jeans with a 3% share of value sales for its Gap brand. These companies all benefit from owning very large and varied portfolios of competitively priced Western fashion brands, which are very popular in the region and ensures their ability to cater for a range of pockets. For example, Al Sawani Group distributes Levi?s jeans, which are hugely popular as arguably one of the strongest and most important brands in jeans and are part of the premium jeans offering. Similarly, its other brands, such as Replay and Guess, are also considered premium jeans and thus, as a distributor, it has been able to benefit for the rise in uptake of premium and luxury jeans. Azadea Group distributes both the Zara and Massimo Dutti jeans brands, which are not only sought after fashion labels, but also competitively priced, offering a quick turnaround of new collections throughout the year and thus within reach for a wider segment of the population. All these companies also carry jeans products that benefit from brand recognition and popularity, as well as benefitting from wide distribution reach in the country.

Industry Prospects

The environment for jean?s wear is expected to become even more challenging over the forecast period, as a result of the increasing competition from other forms of apparel such as shorts, trousers and leggings which are typically more suited for wear in the hot and humid climate of the UAE. The growing popularity of Western fashion in the UAE has led to a mushrooming in terms of the numbers and varieties of apparel available to consumers in the UAE. The growing sophistication of apparel in the UAE, the anticipated increase in appetite for luxury and premium items, along with the forecast increase in disposable income of consumers in the region, are set to create an even more competitive and thus more challenging environment for jeans. Therefore, whilst jeans will remain a staple of the majority of expatriates and Western fashion conscious consumers in the UAE, growth opportunities will be limited.
