Children's & Infants' Clothing Stores in the US

The Children's and Infants' Clothing Stores industry comprises establishments that specialize in retailing apparel for children under the age of 17. Over the five years to 2016, an increase in the number of births had a positive impact on industry revenue. However, a decline in the number of adolescents offset some of the gains made from an increasing number of infants and toddlers. While rising consumer confidence index and strong gains in per capita income had a positive impact on demand for children's and infants' apparel, declining prices are expected to reduce revenue. Over the next five years, revenue is anticipated to increase as per capita disposable income increases more rapidly, boosting spending on children's clothing and as the number of children aged nine or under is expected to increase.

This industry includes specialized clothing retailers that sell a wide range of infant and children’s wear, such as dresses, jackets, jumpsuits, sleepwear and more. Supplementary services include basic alterations like hemming, taking in or letting out seams and lengthening or shortening sleeves. Sales from department stores and online-only retailers are excluded from the industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
