The fashion retail market in the five CE countries (i.e., Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia) expanded by 9.5% in 2019, reaching €10.8bn. However, in 2020, the market is expected to plummet by about 10%. These are the key findings from a new report by PMR, “Clothing and footwear retail market in Central Europe 2020. Market analysis and development forecasts for 2020-2025”.

 

In all the countries under review, market values increased in local currencies in 2019, but will be followed by reductions across the region this year. The highest growth (20% in real terms) was noted in Romania, while the lowest increase occurred in Bulgaria, where the market expanded by only about 3% in real terms.

An upward trend is projected to resume in the region in 2021, and countries with lower per capita expenditures on C&F (Romania, Bulgaria) will be catching up to those spending the most (Czech Republic, Slovakia).
