The Infants' and Children's Clothing Retailing industry performed relatively well during the height of the global financial crisis, only to suffer from substantial revenue declines in the years that followed. Revenue growth was supported during 2008-09 and 2009-10 by increases in the population aged 14 years and under, and government initiatives such as the baby bonus and the economic stimulus package. High immigration rates contributed to growth in the industry's target market, as many immigrants arriving in Australia have young families.
Participants in the industry primarily retail infants' and children's wear. The industry excludes department stores, online-only retailers and general clothing retailers that do not specialise in infants' and children's clothing.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
