Sales will grow by a CAGR of 2.2% to reach $7.8 billion in 2020

Future growth as in the past will be influenced greatly by the number of births and the economy. Recent indications are that both the birth rate and economy are increasing, albeit still at a slow rate, and it remains to be seen if the increases will continue. These positives for the market could be supported by a potential baby boomlet started by Millennial parents. In 2015, Millennial parents (ages 18-34) accounted for 42% of all households with children, making them an important segment of the parenting demographic.

Millennials, and many Gen Xers, are willing to spend extra for perceived higher quality products and services. Notably, they value transparency, authenticity, and brands that represent them and their lifestyles. ITP marketers continue to develop products that deliver benefits these consumers demand: convenience, adaptability and versatility, comfort, style and design. However with ITP products safety comes first. It is a huge concern for manufactur! ers and marketers of ITP products with product recalls a major challenge for the highly regulated industry. Manufacturers and industry organizations urge consumers not to buy second-hand or used products because they may not meet the most current safety standards, and new products are constantly introduced with technologies aimed at making products even safer.

The ITP durables market is fragmented with over a hundred manufacturers, marketers, and importers competing across categories and segments. While fragmented, the market is led by a handful of companies like Dorel Industries, Newell Brands and Goodbaby International that generally compete with multiple brands in numerous segments. Other players include midsize companies and more often smaller firms that compete in one or a few product segments. On the retail side the market is highly concentrated with 90% of sales taking place in mass merchandisers/supercenters, baby specialty s! tores and through e-commerce, which continues to grow at the f! astest r ate.

The market is even more concentrated given that the majority of sales is controlled by less than 10 individual retailers: Babies R Us/Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target, Buy Buy Baby, K-Mart, and Baby Depot (Burlington).
