Children’s wear refers to the apparel that is worn by children belonging to the ages of 0 to 12 years.

They are mostly casual and contemporary in style and are made from a vast array of colors and materials. Largely depending upon the requirements of the wearer, they can also be available in various other forms, such as uniforms and ethnic styles. While gender-specific clothes have always been prevalent in the market, there is also a growing preference for gender-neutral apparel. Some of the most common children’s wear includes outerwear, innerwear, nightwear, socks and tights that are manufactured using cotton-, polyester-, silk- and satin-based fabrics.

Global Children’s Wear Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing preference for branded and designer kid’s apparel. This trend is supported by the global population explosion, shifting lifestyle patterns and the expanding spending capacities of numerous households. Since premium clothing is made from high-quality fabrics that offer enhanced comfort and convenience, their sales are boosting on the global level. The market is further driven by the active participation of children in purchasing decisions. In line with this, the rising brand-consciousness and the growing impact of television and mass-media among the kids, along with the aggressive promotional activities by manufacturers, is providing a thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, the proliferation of online retail fashion portals is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. These websites offer a hassle-free shopping experience with a user-friendly interface, a vast collection of options and lucrative discount offers, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include celebrity endorsements in advertisement campaigns for different labels.
