Increasing pregnancy rates in the U.S. are driving growth.




(PRESS RELEASE) The global maternity apparel market is set to total US$ 21.6 Bn in 2021. Improving men to women ratio and increasing number of working women, who continue to work during their pregnancy, are facilitating the growth in the market. In response to this, the market is expected to reach US$ 41.3 Bn by 2031.

Between 2016 and 2020, the market for maternity clothing expanded at a CAGR of 3.5 percent. Because of the increased influence of fashion magazines, social media, and celebrity endorsements on millennials, modern mothers are increasingly opting for occasion- and venue-specific maternity attire.

For instance, recently Zara launched its first maternity clothing collection comprising around 25 dedicated maternity apparel such as jeans, sweaters, knitted dresses, and overall. A slew of such developments is expected to spur the sales of maternity apparel.

Increasing demand for outerwear stylish clothing such as jeans, skirts, tops, dresses, and tunics, available under various brands is favoring the growth in the segment.
