Myntra, Jabong: Online Fashion Market Leaders
In an earlier interaction, Ananth Narayanan, CEO at Myntra-Jabong had said that Myntra plans to close FY19 with a GMV of $1.9Bn, riding on the back of private labels and offline expansion.
At the same time, he shared that Myntra will soon expand its offline presence to 100 stores in the next two years.
Myntra also cut back its losses in FY 17 by 25% to $96.06 Mn (INR 655 Cr) as against $120.7 Mn (INR 823 Cr) in the previous year as the focus on its private labels continues to drive results.
The company posted a turnover of $314.6 Mn (INR 2,000 Cr) in FY17 and also saw 100% growth in its accessories category for FY17. It had plans to achieve a YOY growth of 200% in the current fiscal.
In September 2017, Narayanan had announced that Myntra’s private labels businesses, which includes brands like Roadster, Dressberry, Anouk, and HRX, have turned profitable and are generating revenue worth $25 Mn a month, and annual revenue of $300 Mn, which accounts for around 23% of its total revenue.
Myntra plays a crucial role in the overall commerce battle in India between Flipkart and Amazon. During the investor call after Walmart’s acquisition of Flipkart, its CEO Doug McMillon referred to Myntra as a “piece” of the company that is positioned well to take advantage of India’s growing middle class and relatively young population.
In India, online fashion retail market, according to Technavio, is expected to grow “impressively” at a CAGR of around 63% by 2020.
Further, a study by Technopak has estimated that the Indian apparel market will grow at a CAGR of 9% to $102 Bn by 2023.
Poised to reach $14 Bn by 2020, the Indian online fashion market is fought over by biggies like Flipkart and Amazon. However, fashion companies Myntra and Jabong continue to be the major players.
