Recent development and expansions

  • H&M, a global apparel manufacturer, launched a new range of baby clothes in May 2022 that, after being worn out, can be recycled in an unexpected way. The 12-piece organic cotton baby collection features tops, pants with adjustable waistbands and cuffs, coats, hats, and blankets. Prices range from $4.99 to $17.99.
  • Carter's, North America's largest branded marketer of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, announced the launch of Carter's recycling programme, KidCycle, in April 2021. According to the company, this is a first-of-its-kind national programme to recycle baby and children's clothing through international recycling leader, TerraCycle. Carter's recycling programme gives parents a sustainable way to get rid of their children's clothes that can no longer be passed on or donated.
  • Reliance Industries Limited-owned fashion retail entity Reliance Brands acquired the rights to UK-based kids’ products company Mothercare for the Indian market in October 2019. The baby care segment is also thriving in the country, which is one of the primary reasons Reliance, the rights owner of several international labels, paid a higher price for the rights.

COVID-19 impact on the Baby Apparel Market

The global baby apparel market suffered as a result of the pandemic. Travel and outdoor activity restrictions reduced sales of children's clothing. Population income levels have fallen, and young parents are prioritising childcare products over traditional clothing. In addition, due to transportation restrictions, the market experienced severe supply chain disruptions and unavailability issues. Furthermore, celebrations like baby showers and naming ceremonies have been restricted by governments' stringent lockdown rules and social distance norms. Such events' cancellations have decreased consumer demand, which has restrained industry growth.
