Hats, Caps, and Millinery: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
Globally, caps, hats, and millinery manufacturers sell more than 300 million units every year. In 2009, the global economic slowdown affected the caps manufacturing industry worldwide. However, buoyed by the latest fashion trends, improving product attributes, and spiraling demand for premium, high-priced and retro styled hats, the market is poised to register healthy growth over the coming years. The global market for premium, high-priced caps is increasing significantly. The underlying factor that supports the cap sales differ from region to region. For instance, Japanese customers mostly opt for US-based products and designs for their premium quality and material. While, the European customers buy caps based on the preference of music celebrities' style and the hip hop culture.
Europe and the United States dominate the world hats, caps, and millinery market as stated by the new market research report on Hats, Caps, and Millinery.

The US hat, cap, and millinery industry exports a significant amount of merchandise to more than one hundred countries.
