The children's homewares market grew by 1.6% in 2015 to reach GBP1,612m, predominantly driven by the maturing 'mini baby boomers' group, a result of the spike in birth rates across 2010-2012. As these babies have grown into toddlers and young children, their parents have increased their spending on products such as beds, bedding, bathroom linens, and furnishings for nurseries and children's bedrooms.
The decoratives segment enjoyed strong growth of 1.6%, as easing pressures on disposable incomes encouraged parents to splash out on updating rooms for their children.
With competition intensifying, the children's homewares market has become highly fragmented, with the market leader Argos only occupying a 7.9% share. This share is expected to decline going forward, as the catalogue-turned-digital retailer struggles to maintain relevance in the face of heavy discounting and online competition.
Over half (50.5%) of children's homewares purchases are made in-store, with consumers preferring to touch and feel products before they buy them. To this end, decoratives (61.3%) and linens (60.3%) are the most likely to have been bought in store, reflecting the tactile and aesthetic nature of these products. That being said, online usage varies within product sub-categories; 41.1% of beds purchases were made online versus 43.7% in-store, reflecting the more considered, bulkier nature of these purchases.
