With the mercury climbing fast, summer apparel sales have shown a quick growth in e-commerce sales. In May, nearly 40 per cent of all products sold at online marketplace Snapdeal itself, were summer clothes. Apparel, is a traditionally a high selling category on the platform, and it has registered increased sales after the relaxation of selling non-essential products online. According to the platform, the demand for apparels has picked up again and is close to the level of pre-COVID sales.

A Snapdeal survey conducted in May 2020 with users across India revealed that while families traditionally enjoyed shopping at the mall, are now looking for safer options to shop. 95 per cent of the respondents preferred online shopping for apparels over retail outlets. Comfort and value were the top two considerations for consumers as they made apparel purchases. The perceived brand value was not an equally important factor as consumers preferred seller brands with attractive prices.

What’s selling?

Kids summer wear is leading in terms of demand. In the survey, buyers said they prioritised kids needs over other needs and that garments for children are a more immediate need because of frequent size changes. T-Shirts, tracks and pajamas, jumpsuits, shorts, infant wear, and sandals make for popular kidswear on the site.
