Executive Summary

Jun 2019
PROSPECTS
Childrenswear forecast to see positive growth

Childrenswear is expected to record positive growth in the future, with the rising sales attributable to the increase in the birth rate during the review period. Growth in childrenswear is also driven by the average increase in the age of first-time parents, who thus have higher disposable incomes, enabling them to plan their families and spend more on high-end childrenswear.

Consumers demand better quality

In childrenswear, pricing is important since children outgrow their clothes quickly. Although unit prices have been slowly falling due to the popularity of private label clothing and increasing availability of other affordable brands, the average price is still high.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
The Iconic added childrenswear

Australian online retailer The Iconic added childrenswear to its portfolio by adding more than 70 brands, including Bonds, Purebaby, Cotton On Kids, Bardot Junior and Rock Your Baby. The childrenswear ranges from infants (aged 0-2 years), to children (aged 2-7 years) and teens (aged 8-14 years).

Increasing competition

Sportswear brand Running Bare recently introduced its sportswear range called The RB Girls, with products such as high-performance tights, crop tops and singlets for girls of ages 6-14 years. In addition, after reviewing the success of other players in the market, One Teaspoon also launched its first children’s range, with the aim of offering clothes that are considered the trendiest.

Pumpkin Patch acquired by Alceon Group

Pumpkin Patch, a childrenswear brand from New Zealand, is expected to be relaunched in Australia and New Zealand after being acquired by the Alceon Group from former owners Catch Group. After facing direct and intense competition from international brands, Pumpkin Patch suffered and closed its online and bricks-and-mortar store in 2017, after which it was acquired by the Catch Group and brought back into the market.
