Demographics skew younger and female

Against a backdrop of high inflation, a stock market decline, and concerns over a recession in the United States and Europe, Similarweb data seems to indicate that lululemon is continuing to see strong demand, particularly among females and younger adults. Similarweb demographic data shows the company performing strongly with women, particularly in the 18-44 age categories. This makes sense, given the brand’s strong presence around fitness and health.
