Why Licensing for Manufacturers?

But, why brand licensing?

In 2017, retail sales of brand licensed products ranging from apparel to mobile apps grew 3.3% to $271.6 billion* worldwide. 79% of those sales were from brick-and-mortar retailers, 21% were from on-line retailers. For many, licensing has offered manufacturers a competitive advantage in the ever-changing retail landscape.
