Overview of the Childrenswear Market in Germany

According to Mintel’s children’s apparel Germany market forecast, the industry is rebalancing to pre-pandemic levels due to increased prices, a return to in-store shopping, and rising birth rates.

As consumers are still adopting a frugal mindset due to the high cost-of-living, the sector will grow slowly but steadily, creating an ideal environment for new concepts such as vintage and rental to thrive and gain more kids apparel Germany market share.

Childrenswear in Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Consumer Behaviour: The cost-of-living crisis remains on top of consumers’ lists as rising prices prompt parents to shift to cheaper retailers or buy less childrenswear. Price comparison will also become more common as part of the customer journey for buying childrenswear in Germany.
  • Children’s Apparel Trends: 37% of parents have prioritised shopping for clothes for their children over shopping for themselves with 28% switching to cheaper retailers or brands. This will benefit value brands’ kids apparel Germany market share, while higher-priced brands will have to offer cheaper lines or attractive bundles to retain customers.
  • Childrenswear Market Challenges: Amidst inflationary prices, concerns about sustainability are taking a back seat as eco-friendly products are usually more expensive. At the same time, however, new concepts around pre-worn fashion are expanding, especially since childrenswear has to be replaced frequently.

Children’s Apparel Germany Market Forecast

  • During the pandemic the Germany childrenswear market size for online retailers has grown significantly due to a large selection, convenience, and easy price comparison.
  • As the Germany childrenswear market size continues to experience robust growth, consumers will shift further towards online, especially teens and young parents who will appreciate the convenience and playfulness that digital experiences can offer.
