As one of the top online shopping categories among consumers, it should come as no surprise that the US fashion industry size is huge. In fact, it is currently valued at hundreds of billions of dollars. The sales figures for 2022 are at $473.42 billion. This represents a fashion industry growth rate of 8.3 percent from 2021's figures. The fashion industry growth rate this year, though relatively high, is still a slowdown from the previous year. In 2021, the industry grew at 18.4 percent, the fastest rate in the forecast period from 2019 to 2023. This also came after the steep fall in the US fashion industry sales in 2020, during which sales tumbled 21.9 percent and marked a more than $100 billion loss from 2019. This plunge is the result of the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected both the US fashion industry growth rate and sales figures. The closure of brick-and-mortar fashion retailers in compliance with local coronavirus regulations meant a fall in visitors and, subsequently, sales. Cutbacks by consumers on inessential items and an increased focus on household essentials also contributed to the negative US fashion industry growth rate in 2020. The US fashion industry sales are, however, expected to rebound from 2021 onwards. Total sales for 2023 are forecast at $494.89 billion, a 4.5 percent annual increase.
