While Asia, particularly China, has enjoyed a dominant position in shoes and apparel for several years, makers of these items in developed nations such as the United States and Canada have suffered a long period of decline. For example, about 85 percent of footwear sold worldwide in 2012 was imported from Asia. To consumers in North America, this growing reliance on Asia as a low-cost producer has meant very low retail prices for goods of reasonable quality.

During 2013, retail sales at clothing and accessories stores in the United States totaled approximately 251 billion U.S. dollars; up from 242.5 billion U.S. dollars the previous year. Apparel retailing has always been a tough, highly competitive business, and many chains rise dramatically and then fail as price pressure from major discounters like Wal-Mart, Target and Kohl's keep profit margins thin at stores that sell moderately priced apparel.

The U.S. apparel industry is constantly changing, with fashion trends generating new demand on a regular basis. Younger demographics continue to buy, trying to keep up with fashion trends. Apparel retailers aim to drive innovation to stay connected and provide relevant products.
