Top Headwear Manufacturers in 2023

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

For manufacturers of textile goods, the hat and headwear sector has long been vibrant and alluring.
With the expansion of fashion in recent years, the headwear market—which comprises various types of winter hats, beanies, sports hats, headbands, straw hats, and other related products—has experienced tremendous growth. Today, wearing hats has become a part of people’s everyday fashion and wearing habits and is no longer just reserved for the colder months or special occasions.

It is anticipated that as the metropolitan population grows, so will fashion. By 2050, 67% of the world’s population, up from 55% today, is anticipated to reside in urban areas. In contrast to ten years ago, casual wear is now used by all social classes, and hats are a key component of young people’s and other people’s informal dress.

You can view the results of an intriguing study conducted in America that looked at hat usage among various societal age groups below:

  • Older people (1964–1945): 5.1%
  • Middle-aged (1979–1965): 15.2%
  • Youth (From 1980 to 1999): 30.6 %
  • Teens (born after 2000): 55.8%

The following businesses can be listed as some of the key participants in the hat industry: (Top Players in the Headwear Market)

  1. Nike Inc.
  2. Adidas AG
  3. New Era Cap
  4. Pipolaki
  5. Under Armour Inc.

Sportswear, along with the sales of various types of headbands and sports cap, is another industry that has thrived in recent years. This expanding trend has given producers of this hat and well-known companies like Nike, Adidas, etc., a great chance. Sports like tennis, golf, baseball, cricket, and polo are examples where wearing a hat significantly impacts an athlete’s performance and necessitates a high hat consumption.

Africa and South America have the least market shares for headwear globally, with North America, Russia, and Asia having the biggest.

As in previous years, customers have been taken aback by how quickly science and technology permeate the textile and apparel industries. Numerous businesses have launched initiatives and innovations to create new items that are easier to use. The top innovations in the head wear sector include the use of recyclable materials, the creation of hats from recycled materials, the usage of vegan and organic leathers, the incorporation of hats with special sensors that monitor body heat and humidity, etc. These advancements directly improve the user experience for the customer and help to protect the environment.

Below you can find some of the top headwear manufacturers in the world with a brief detail :

In 1922, George S. Bailey, a mid-western man with a penchant for hats, founded the Bailey Hat Company in Los Angeles, California. Bailey saw the emerging need for a hat company that not only catered to the West Coast market, but one that also catered to the Western wear market. George Bailey saw a vast and as yet, untapped customer base in southern California and dedicated himself to providing those customers with fine quality hats and great styling.

The American west was booming, and Los Angeles was leading the charge. A population explosion was underway and due to the proliferation of cattle ranches, farms, mines, oil fields and, of course, movies, southern California’s economy was growing at a breakneck pace. Los Angeles-based film studios accounted for nearly one-fifth of California’s annual manufacturing business in the early ‘20s and it was there that George Bailey would start his business. He catered directly to the needs of the ‘New West’ outfitting southern California ranchers, businessmen, oil tycoons, and the newest segment of the population, movie stars, with ‘the best hat possible’.

Today, Bailey design explores the juxtaposition of Hollywood elegance and Western toughness and is influenced by both directional culture and fashion that serves as a unique framework for original design. The collection consists of timeless products that customers buy again and again as well as cultural statement pieces that are unique and packed with style.

Christys’ was and is a brand with an eye on the future and, while methods have remained largely unchanged and heritage is paramount, it is the capacity to transcend trends and social borders that makes Christys’ hats as sought after as ever. Historic. Iconic. Trailblazing.

Address: 6 St. James’s Street, London, UK

Established in 1676, Lock & Co. is the oldest hat shop in the world, the oldest shop in London & one of the oldest family-owned businesses still in existence.

Revered for our centuries-honed craftsmanship, our innovative designs have graced the heads of some of the greatest figures in history. Admiral Lord Nelson wore our bicorne into the Battle of Trafalgar. Sir Winston Churchill adopted our Cambridge and Homburg hats as his trademarks. Dashing author Oscar Wilde was a fan, while the equally debonair Beau Brummell procured our hats as part of his sartorial repertoire.

Our luxury hats are not only born out of fashion, but also functionality, as our celebrated Coke hat testifies. Named after nobleman Edward Coke, who commissioned Lock & Co. in 1849 to create a style hardy enough for his gamekeepers, the hat has transcended time to become a true classic, made all the more memorable by the silver screen: Bond villain Oddjob wore it in Goldfinger and Charlie Chaplin made it as much of his act as his moustache.

Akubra Hats are an essential part of Australian country life due to the bright sunshine and high levels of UV.

As it did in 1865, Stetson today embodies the resourceful, authentic, and diverse American spirit. Rich in history, the story of Stetson continues in step with the journey of America -ever evolving and timeless.

Founded in 1865, Stetson was born from the spirit of the West and grew to become an American icon. John B. Stetson’s friendly gesture towards a wayward traveler on the new frontier gave birth to the world’s first “cowboy hat.” Ever since, Stetson has been a global leader in headwear, a trusted household name around the world, and has become standard equipment for Western aficionados everywhere.

For over 150 years, Stetson has created quality products that are built to last and have deep roots in the American tradition. We have a strong appreciation for objects that are made well and products that get better with age. We still craft our products using much of the same techniques as John B. did so many years ago – with an eye towards meeting the needs of the future generations of frontiersmen, pioneers, industrialists and trailblazers.

“In 1988, my search for an original, wool uniform led me to a warehouse containing baseball flannel dating from the 40’s. I bought in one bolt at a time and we literally built our company on it.” – Jerry Cohen, Co-Founder
Ebbets Field Flannels remains committed to bringing the quality, beauty and craftsmanship of mid-century American athletic garments to a 21st century public.

Co-founder Jerry Cohen grew up in Brooklyn, not far from where the fabled stadium once stood in Flatbush. Jerry listened to his father tell stories of the colorful players of another era. He was proud of the fiercely independent neighborhood. And the Brooklyn Dodgers’ heritage as the first major league team to integrate professional baseball in 1947, with the addition of Hall-of-Famer Jackie Robinson.

Jerry was fascinated with sports emblems and uniforms. As a youngster, he would purchase baseball cards to see the uniform changes and colors rather than for the players. Fast-forward to 1987, when he was trying to find a vintage flannel baseball jersey to wear onstage with his rock & roll band. Which led to…
