Drivers & Restraints:

Positive Impact of Assisted Reproductive Techniques to Drive Market Growth

Assisted reproductive techniques, such as in-vitro fertilization and surrogacy, have played a crucial role in addressing parental infertility concerns, resulting in an increase in the number of newborns. This, in turn, has increased the baby apparel market share. Furthermore, infants up to the age of 24 months tend to outgrow their clothing sizes quickly, leading to frequent purchases of new clothes.

On the contrary, renting, leasing, and re-commerce practices may impede the baby apparel market growth.

Asia Pacific Leads the Market due to Presence of High Population

Asia Pacific holds 38.64% of the global revenue in the baby apparel industry. China is anticipated to lead the market due to cancellation of the single child policy.          

The growth of the market in Europe is fueled by rising demand for full-body nightwear and winter wear, attributed to the cold climatic conditions experienced during the winter season.

Competitive Landscape

Market Leaders Focus on Acquisitions and Mergers to Exceed Reach
To solidify their position in the market, major players are implementing strategies such as acquisitions and mergers and enhancing the supply chains.
