With changing government policies, focus, and emphasis on promoting primary and secondary education, the school uniform market is expected to offer prosperous opportunities during the forecast period. China is the most populous country in the world, followed by India. The removal of the one child policy by the Chinese government has led to an increase in children and young population in the country, which is expected to grow more in the coming years. Furthermore, many countries in the region are developing, and the governments are investing heavily in the healthcare and child welfare sector. Due to increase in medical services that are available to the people, the rate of infant mortality has reduced significantly. This has again led to an increase in children and young population of the region, which, in turn, will convert into a school going population. With changing government policies and decreasing mortality rates, the region is expected to witness high population growth, resulting in increased demand for school uniform.

Sports play a crucial role in the growth and development of children.

Furthermore, sports also help in improving personal skills, including cooperation and leadership. Various studies across the world suggest sports in early stages also aid in enhancing decision making capabilities and discipline. Furthermore, group sports promote skills, such as team work, collaboration, and close coordination, which act beneficial for children in their later stages. Attributed to multiple benefits of sports in early stage of life, governments are emphasizing on inclusion of various sports activities in the curriculum.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of leading companies, the last few years have witnessed an increase in the number of schools being built and utilized as more importance is being given to primary and secondary education. While many of these school in the West might be private and allow students to wear dresses of their choice, most of the public schools in the West and almost all schools in other parts of the world make use of school uniforms as the standard dress code for their schools.

Uniforms are used as a method to induce a sense of unity and to eliminate any differences based on caste, creed, religion, race, or any other differentiating factors. It is also a way to induce discipline and formality in students by making them accustomed to being in formal clothing throughout the day. Most schools have set vendors of uniforms so that they can insure consistent quality and deliveries.

The school uniform market has witnessed stagnant growth. Proliferation of schools across the countries has significantly contributed to the market expansion; however, innovations, such as use of organic cotton, novel materials, which inhibit body odor, and usage of sustainable material, are expected to shape the school uniform market in the upcoming years. Asia-Pacific will continue to spearhead the market growth amidst expansion of primary and secondary school infrastructure and incorporation of sports and extracurricular activities in the academia.
