Artificial intelligence (AI) has many roles to play along the apparel value chain – from the supply of raw materials to yarn, fabric and garment manufacture, distribution channels and the retail sector. It can help companies to pick out micro trends, tailor the range of products they offer to a specific store and learn about how consumers are using their garments – including how often the garments are washed, when they are used, and when they stop being used.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR): implications for the global apparel Industry is a 28-page independently researched report from Textiles Intelligence – the world's most authoritative source of business information on the global textile and apparel industry. During September 2018 only, it is being offered at half the usual price.
Significant developments have been made in artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) technologies in recent years, leading several apparel brands and retailers to explore ways of using these technologies in order to improve their operations. Indeed, the potential for AI and AR to transform the global apparel industry is huge, and the technologies are being used at several stages of the product development process as well as at the point of sale.
In particular, the use of AI can contribute to an improved understanding of trends and can also be used in retail stores to provide customers with a better service. Meanwhile, the use of AR is allowing brands and retailers to replace physical garment samples with digital equivalents, thereby allowing them to save time and resources.
This report provides an overview of AI and AR, and discusses the operations of the field's key players with specific reference to the apparel industry. Furthermore, the report analyses the ways in which AI and AR technologies are being adopted and used by a number of the world's apparel brands and retailers, including Amazon, American Apparel, Burberry, Dior, Farfetch, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Yoox Net-A-Porter Group (YNAP) and Zara.
