Industry Deep Dive: Clothing Industry

In by Sascha KellyLeave a Comment

In today’s episode, Alec and Ren take a look at the clothing industry, (not within Ren’s circle of competence) but a fascinating industry all the same. The world consumes five times the amount of clothing it did twenty years ago, and approximately 80 billion new pieces of clothing are produced every single year. In Australia, the market size alone is $16 billion, and 24 333 businesses are involved in the industry. Globally though, this industry is projected to grow to $2.25 trillion by the year 2025!
