PROSPECTS
Childrenswear in South Korea continues to be impacted by a low birth rate

Changing lifestyles also affecting childrenswear

It is not only demographic factors but also lifestyle changes which are affecting childrenswear. Laundry appliances, for example, have had a significant effect on consumers’ lifestyles.

Quantity over quality for baby and toddler wear

Average unit price in baby and toddler wear was the lowest in childrenswear in 2018. Nursing culture for babies and toddlers in South Korea is very much focused on the indoors in order to maintain a suitable temperature.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Domestic brands remain strong while fast fashion players perform well

Domestic manufacturers led childrenswear in 2018, while international brands such as Uniqlo, H&M and Zara posted strong growth. Domestic brands benefit from widespread distribution, for example through hypermarkets, shopping malls, department stores and standalone outlets, while international labels tend to be mainly sold through their own mono-brand stores.

Premium offerings also continue to be popular in childrenswear

Premium and luxury brands continued to remain popular in 2018 as these are often purchased as gifts or for special occasions. Designer childrenswear is often handed down to siblings or else sold in second-hand shops or via social media networks.
