Uniqlo, Japan (Clothing and Footwear) Shoppers Profile, Market Share and Competitive Positioning
Uniqlo was the most shopped at apparel retailer in Japan according to GlobalData's Q3 2021 Consumer Survey, with 43.8% of Japanese consumers stating they had purchased clothing & footwear from it in the past 12 months.
Uniqlo Japan's revenue fell 10.2% to JPY442.5 billion in its H1 FY2021/22 (ending 28 February 2022), as the retailer struggled with supply chain challenges and came up against strong comparatives in the prior year.
Uniqlo plans to develop a strong store presence in parts of Asia beyond Japan, reducing its dependence on the Japanese apparel market. The retailer must capitalize on its strong brand identity to ensure future success both overseas and in its home market, particularly through continuing to launch unique collaborations which attract shoppers beyond its usual customer base.
