The most well-known and earliest company in this industry, Rent the Runway, has long been recognized for its formal clothing in the United States.

The business now provides a wide selection of clothing for every occasion. Gwynnie Bee, New York & Company Closet, Nuuly, Armoire, and Vince Unfold are other brands that provide subscription plans in the United States.

Growing Internet Usage Fuels the Market Growth

Nowadays, many individuals frequently purchase apparel online owing to the convenience, ease of price comparison, and ease of research, which outweigh the effort required to visit a physical brick-and-mortar store.

According to National Retail Federation (NRF), U.S. consumer expenditure on e-commerce is expected to reach a record USD 1 trillion in 2022 due to the pandemic-driven shift to online buying. Due to the availability of online rental platforms, consumers may purchase and rent any type of apparel with a lower expenditure of money and for extended periods.

For instance, Rent the Runway is a US-based online clothes rental company that enables consumers to purchase designer clothing and accessories for rental. The company's e-commerce platforms offer customers a wide selection of designer dresses, tops, sweaters, coats, pants, skirts, gowns, jumpsuits, activewear, maternity, etc.

As they disseminate information about established companies and newcomers in the online clothing rental industry, social networking sites such as Facebook and Instagram and online communities significantly impact the market's expansion and growth.

In January 2022, there were 307.2 million internet users in the U.S., 92% of the population is connected to the internet in the United States. Therefore, the increasing penetration of the internet in the United States is driving the market growth of online clothing rental services in the country.

Socially Conscious Customers Find Comfort in the Ability to Rent

Consumers concerned about the environment, frequently looking for sustainable practices in the brands they buy from. Socially concerned consumers are successfully persuaded by fashion businesses to rent their clothing rather than purchase it.
