Swimwear and Beachwear: A Global Strategic Business Report

The desire of women to look fashionable by the pool and at the beach is driving demand for bikines and swimsuits; and these changing trends in fashion are prompting designers to update swimwear and beachwear costumes regularly. Increasing incorporation of fashion elements into swimwear is attracting more consumers, especially the new generation. The women's swimwear fashion is led by asymmetric designs, bold colors, African and geometric prints and the classic yet modern silhouettes. This trend is noticeable in several new collections, such as The Secret Designer Collections of Victoria comprising push-up tankini-tops in tiger prints and dots and one-piece Red Carter Giraffe cutout. The latest New York Runway fashion includes jungle and tribal prints in their collections.

Currently, consumers sport swimwear in all seasons, which is driving business growth. The way men regard swimwear changed over the years and the product is increasingly moving into the casual clothing category. With conventional men becoming more conscious about their looks, designers are expanding product options, leading to increased business. There is a growing use of swimwear such as shorts, particularly boardshorts as casual clothing. A key reason for entry of fashion into men's swimwear is more men sporting silhouettes, including ones that reveal body shape. While sports brands are becoming more fashionable, fashion brands are getting more sports functionality.

Europe and the United States dominate the global swimwear and beachwear market, as stated by the new market research report on swimwear and beachwear market.
