This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of the market for PLM applications for apparel, footwear, and retail (AFR) brands through the IDC MarketScape model. It analyzes global software providers in the market today that support the design, development, and production process. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit retailers hard, yet retail manufacturers still recognize the need (even more so) for digital platforms that enable collaboration across a wide ecosystem of internal and external constituents.

"For the IDC MarketScape of PLM for apparel, footwear, and retail brands, we see three vendors beginning to distinguish themselves from the pack due to the breadth of capability and product strategy, maturity of offering and industry expertise, and expanding usage of new digital technologies to enhance decision making. There is also a series of vendors that sit in our Major Players category that are a mix of supply chain providers and design to manufacturing (Industry 4.0) and SaaS cloud-based vendors that provide ample platforms for design and R&D teams to quickly collaborate and manage the development process," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies at IDC Manufacturing Insights.
