The Western European workwear and uniforms market is expected to reach €8.01 billion in 2021. A revival in the manufacturing and construction industry across Western Europe is expected to offer high growth for the blue workwear segment. Britain’s exit from the European Union has temporarily resulted in higher products prices, however, this is not expected to restrain the adoption of workwear but it is likely to hamper replacement sales.  However, regions such as Scandinavia, Benelux, and Germany prefer buying quality workwear with functionality such as breathability, moisture wicking, and ruggedness. These are typically sold at a higher price point and boost the revenue for workwear segment. Furthermore, there has been significant research regarding the development of clothing, which is responsive to external surroundings. This provides comfort to the end user. However, with uptake of automation in many industry verticals, the need for workwear is expected to deter in the long term of the forecast period.
