According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Children’s Wear Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the global children’s wear market size exhibited moderate growth during 2014-2019. Children’s wear refers to the apparel that is worn by children belonging to the ages of 0 to 12 years. These pieces of clothing are made from high-quality materials to offer comfort and breathability to the wearer. 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.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
