Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “For the sale of automatic baby swings, the market vendors need to abide the safety standards and certifications associated with the products. The safety standards and certifications vary based on the type of swings and countries. These safety standards get revised from time to time. The key competitors, including Graco, Fisher-Price, and 4moms, make sure that their products are compliant with all the safety standards. For instance, in the US, most of the market competitors are joining the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This is due to the fact that if a competitor gets a JPMA certification for swings, it means that these swings have passed the testing procedures for all the standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International.”
According to the report, parenting is one of the most beautiful experiences of life; however, it is impossible for the parents to be with the baby 24/7. An automatic swing provides, reasonably, a safe place and another way to occupy the baby while dealing with important household chores. Fast-paced modern lifestyles and preference to convenience have increased the need for time-saving and easy-to-use baby care processes and devices. In addition to this, the decision to delay to conceive babies contributes considerably to the adoption of such advanced baby care products. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in the US, several career-oriented parents delay the process of conceiving babies because they prefer earning enough to ensure the safety and comfort of their children when they have them in later life without compromising on their work and quality time.
Further, the report states that in 2016, around than 300 baby swing-related incidents were reported. To address such issues, based on CPSC standards, such products get recalled from the market on an immediate effect. Sometimes, products get defected during the distribution process to several channels. At this time, companies do not have the control of their products status. So, this step has adverse effects on the share of the market competitors. Since the development of baby swings, a large number of market recalls have been reported until date. For example, in 2002, Baby Trend Inc. recalled around 15,000 baby swings to repair them because of one of the screws being loosened from supporting arm. Similarly, in 2007, Fisher-Price recalled 112,000 units of Portable Rainforest Open Top Take-Along swing because infant entrapment cases were reported against it.
