PER CAPITA CONSUMPTION

The per capita consumption of jeans in French Republic can be calculated below:

2010

Total net consumption        :            43.52 million pcs

Total population                    :           65.02 million

Per capita consumption      :           0.67 jeans per person/P.A

2014

Total net consumption         :           46.42 million pcs

Total population                    :           67.64 million

Per capita consumption      :           0.69 jeans per person/p.a

From the above analysis, it can be drawn that from the year 2010 to 2014, the per capita consumption has been slightly increased from 0.67 Jeans per person per annum to 0.69 Jeans per person per annum – a figure which is negligible and does not encourage huge optimism. Also the per capita consumption is much lower than many other nations like UK , Germany , Benelux etc. Not the greatest market, but still has a decent consumption of about 45 million pcs.
