IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the global women's t-shirts market report, along with forecasts at the global, regional, and country levels for 2024-2032. Our report has categorized the market based on fiber and distribution channel.

Breakup by Fiber:

Polyester dominates the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the fiber. This includes cotton, polyester, cellulosic and others. According to the report, polyester represented the largest segment.

Polyester is a synthetic fiber particularly in the production of T-shirts, due to its numerous advantageous properties. It is renowned for its strength and resilience, offering long-lasting t-shirts that are resistant to wear and tear and maintain their shape even after multiple washes. Furthermore, polyester fibers have moisture-wicking abilities, allowing them to draw sweat away from the body; particularly popular for sportswear or hot climates. Additionally, they blend well with other fibers, such as cotton-polyester, enhancing certain characteristics, such as softness, wrinkle resistance, or durability. Moreover, the material can be manufactured in various textures and finishes, allowing for a wide array of aesthetic choices, from glossy to matte appearances. In addition to this, polyester is a cost-effective alternative compared to natural fibers like cotton making it an attractive option for manufacturers and consumers.

Apart from this, brands with offline stores contribute significantly to their visibility and brand image.
