The market for lingerie in India is approximately Rs 8,700 crore growing at a of 14 per cent. The market for branded lingerie in India can be divided into four segments — economy, mid, premium and super premium. The segments are defined by price as well as the fashion quotient offered by the brands. Enhanced product attributes across fabric, multi-functional features too define a segment’s offerings.

With more women joining the workforce there is a big improvement in their spending power. This in turn has given a big boost to the market for western outfits. The preferences regarding lingerie are also changing. They are associating innerwear with special occasions and different usage options.

The mid to premium segment forms 52 per cent of the market and is expected to grow fastest at 22 per cent in the next five years. The branded faces stiff competition from regional brands besides the unbranded segment. Local brands enjoy strong regional distribution, local manufacturing and hence low pricing.

Economy — Daisy Dee, Juliet, Red Rose
