- 20 major companies lead the global fashion industry right now, according to the McKinsey Global Fashion Index. These companies account for 97% of global economic profit in the sector.
- Nike, Adidas, and H&M are among the well-known names on the list.
- According to the report, mid-market players are increasingly losing out to luxury and value brands.
The global fashion market is dominated by 20 companies, according to new research from management consultancy firm McKinsey & Company.
In its "Global Fashion Index," released last week, McKinsey ranked the top fashion companies across the world by economic profit, which it defines as "a measure for value-add created by businesses, whereby opportunity costs are deducted from revenues earned."
Dubbed the "super winners," these companies currently account for 97% of global economic profit in the retail sector and own some of the biggest and best-known brands in the business, including Nike, H&M, and Zara.
"The lesson from 2017 is that size continues to matter," the report said. "There is a demonstrable advantage to scale. The one caveat is that if you can't be big, be nimble."
Noticeably absent from this list are online players and US department stores - the latter dominated the list 10 years ago, according to the report. The companies are ranked by economic profit, which is net operating profit, less adjusted taxes minus capital charge.
