1.1 Presentation and definition of the market

The market for baby clothing includes clothing and accessories for children from 0 to 3 years old. The sector is therefore a sub-segment of the apparel market, referring to a specific age group and consequently target consumer.

Growth is mainly sustained by high fertility rates in developing countries and by a growing interest in branded clothing. With the internet becoming each time more popular among parents, they are also starting to be exposed to the latest fashion from social media websites which are influencing their decision-making process. In addition, online shopping among the parents across the globe is also experiencing a boost, as more attractive discounts offered by the e-commerce websites such as Flipkart, Amazon, and Alibaba are gaining ground. Nevertheless, the key baby apparel manufacturers include Carter's, Inc.; Cotton On Group; Hennes & Mauritz AB; Nike, Inc.; Gymboree Group, Inc.; Industria de Diseño Textil, S.A.; and Naartjie.

Historically dominated by a few U.S based brands, the market’s perspectives are gradually evolving, giving space for newcomers to enter due to the impact of online retailing and the continuous change in the preferences of the new generation of parents. In addition, one can observe the rise of several fashion shows/exhibitions around the world - for example World of Childhood 2020- which are becoming more popular, promoting new tendencies and launching new products of baby clothing.

Brazil is actually presenting a birth rate that is smaller than the world’s average. It has one of the biggest number of children in comparison to other big countries. Over the last 6 years the annual total sales of baby clothing increased by more than 40%, with girls’ apparel remaining the main category. The sector is expected to surpass the adults clothing market, as parents have presented the tendency of prioritizing their children’s apparel over their own.

The baby clothing market - France

Publicado en 07/09/2022 by Dan

I found this study to be very complete yet concise. It gives the main trends of the market and does not limit itself to "basic" figures such as sales figures, but also deals with pricing strategies and trends according to the positioning of the players. It's a study that has really served me well and that deals with marketing, the regulatory side, the offer, the competition and the pricing. Bravo!

The baby clothing market - France

Publicado en 08/01/2022 by Lorraine Ferry

It is interesting to note that specialized distribution is still on a par with mass distribution, as well as the takeoff of second-hand trade, luxury brands, and the "sustainable" behavior of consumers who give away clothes they have a very limited use for
