Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Online Childrens Apparel Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global online childrens apparel market: Alibaba, Amazon, JD.com, and Walmart.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: American Apparel, Benetton, Balabala, Carter’s, Cotton On, Diesel, Disney, Dolce&Gabbana, DKNY, eBay, GAP, Giordano International, Kering, Levi Strauss, Mothercare, Ralph Lauren, The Children’s Place, tinycottons, VF, and Wovenplay.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend boosting market growth is the demand for luxury children’s wear in developed countries. Fashion-consciousness among children in developed economies like the Americas and Europe has increased, largely influenced by the buying patterns and increased fashion awareness of parents. Income also plays a major role in fueling demand for luxury children's wear.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the shorter product life cycle. Children’s apparel has a shorter life cycle than adult clothing, as children tend to quickly outgrow their clothes. Customers have to make frequent purchases to meet the requirements of the growing children. As a result, the demand for children’s apparel is considerably more than that of apparel for adults, and this contributes significantly to year-over-year growth of the market.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could derail market growth is the threat of counterfeit products.
