The ethical fashion market consists of sales of apparels by entities (organizations, sole traders or partnerships) that are primarily engaged in designing, production, retail, and purchasing of ethical fashion apparels. Ethical fashion is the designing and manufacturing of clothes while caring for the people and communities involved in the process, and while also minimizing the impact on the environment. It focuses on both the social and environmental impact of fashion, seeking to improve the working conditions of laborers and the environment.

The global ethical fashion market reached a value of nearly $6,345.3 million in 2019, having increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% since 2015. The market is expected to grow from $6,345.3 million in 2019 to $8,246.1 million in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8%.

Growth in the historic period resulted from emerging markets growth and rise in foreign direct investments. This growth was restricted by high costs of ethical fashion.
