Crucially, this is coupled with strategic investments in technology and sustainability. Inditex is the biggest retail clothing company in the world. Last year, Inditex made 1.6 billion pieces of clothing. The company, which also has brands including Bershka and Pull & Bear, has been resilient against challenges in the sector due to tight control of inventory, which has helped it avoid major discounting. Expansion of its online platform in new territories, such as South Africa, Ukraine, Philippines and Colombia, has helped it to grow revenues in new markets.
