The UK menswear market will grow by £3.2bn in the five years to 2020 - equating to 29.5% growth on 2015. A growing interest in fashion and a willingness to buy more frequently will boost future spend, with spend by per increasing by over £100 in the coming five years. With competition deepening, retailers can gain a competitive advantage by building their ranges of non-core product areas such as big and tall, tailoring and sportswear, to grow destination appeal by serving niche customer groups.

Key Findings
- The UK menswear market is forecast to grow by 29.5% between 2015 and 2020, the strongest growth of all the UK clothing sectors. This will be driven by males becoming more interested in trends and fashion, encouraging them to shop and purchase more frequently.

- Though MandS still has the largest share of the market in 2015, this continues to be eroded by stronger performing rivals such as Next and Primark, which are enticing MandS's family shoppers and gradually encroaching on the top spot.

- As wage growth recovers and improved disposable incomes allow consumers to increase their spend on clothing, average spend per head on menswear will reach £526.35 in 2020.

- More choice is required to build penetration among mature males as 33.0% of 65+s say there is not enough stylish clothing and footwear targeted directly at them and 68.0% say they care a lot about their personal appearance.

- The menswear online clothing market is forecast to grow by 162.2% in the five years to 2015 reaching £2.2bn, as spend shifts from more traditional shopping methods and multichannel retailers such as Top man, John Lewis, River Island and New Look continue to invest in their platforms and increase menswear product availability online.
