Nikkei newspaper group estimated the 2013 market share of clothing store chains in Japan. The total sales of chains were 1.3 trillion yen, increasing by 7.8% from 2012.
Uniqlo dominates the market, its market share was 51.5% in 2013.
The actual shop names of "2nd place UNITED ARROWS, 3rd place point and 5th place PAL" are different from the parent companies' names. They have many brand shops. So I cannot tell which brand belongs to those parent companies.
