12 Most Popular Jean Brands in USA

In this piece, we will take a look at the twelve most popular jean brands in the USA. For more companies, head on over to the 5 Most Popular Jean Brands in USA.

Jeans Industry: An Analysis

According to Allied Market Research, the value of the global denim jeans market is predicted to reach $88.1 billion, globally, by 2030 at 4.2% CAGR, reported Bloomberg. The increase in purchasing power, per capita consumption of denim jeans, awareness of clothing appropriate for different body types, and acceptance of casual attire for office work are the factors driving the growth of the worldwide denim jeans market.

However, the growing popularity of loose-fitting clothing, work-from-home policies, and the intentional embrace of a simple lifestyle restrain market expansion. On the other side, as disposable income has increased in Asia Pacific's developing nations like China and India, people are spending more on apparel and personal care. New opportunities will result from this in the upcoming years. Due to the closure of retail outlets worldwide, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a detrimental effect on the expansion of the global denim jeans market. Due to the deployment of the lockdown, the pandemic halted denim jean production facilities and affected the supply chain. This ultimately prevented the market from expanding. Additionally, the market's expansion was somewhat constrained by the consumer's dynamic shifts in spending habits.

The slim fit category accounted for more than two-fifths of the global market for denim jeans in 2020 and is anticipated to continue to hold the top spot during the forecast period. The demand for slim-fit denim jeans is increased by advances in denim fabric and the availability of slim-fit denim jeans in various patterns. However, the sector with the highest CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2030 is expected to be skinny fit. Women prefer skinny-fit denim jeans because of their stylish and fashionable appearance.

Men accounted for the greatest share of end users in 2020, accounting for about half of the worldwide denim jeans market. It is anticipated that men will continue to hold the lead during the forecast period. This is because the biggest stars in entertainment, sports, and other creative fields are paying attention to fashion and working with some of the top denim jeans companies worldwide. But from 2021 to 2030, the women's market is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR of 5.0%. The increase in working women's purchasing power supports the demand for high-end denim jeans among women.

In terms of revenue, North America accounted for about two-fifths of the world market for denim jeans in 2020, holding the largest market share by region. This is a result of the growing popularity of coloured denim jeans, the introduction of newer styles, and the premium pricing of denim jeans. However, the quickest CAGR of 6.2% is anticipated in the Asia-Pacific region over the course of the projection period. The increase in the number of working women, fast urbanization, increased westernization of lifestyles in emerging economies, and rise in fashion consciousness are the factors driving the growth of the global denim jeans market in this area.
