Market outlook of toys in Europe

E-retailing has become an emerging trend for almost all types of retail services. The rise in online line sales of toys and games is one of the major factors driving the growth of the toys market in Europe. Technavio€™s market research analyst expects the toys market in Europe to grow at a CAGR over 3% between 2016 and 2020. The prices offered are often lower online because of a reduction in overhead costs. The European online retailing market grew by almost 18% in 2014 from 2013.

The eco-friendly toys made from materials such as wood, cardboard, and organic cotton is another fast-moving trend propelling the growth of the market. For instance, Oompa toys, the online retail toys store provide organic toys, high-quality toys, and wooden toys that are safe to play compared to the other toxic toys, which are also harmful to health. Green Toys is another company that makes toys from recyclable plastic milk bottles. They had a tie-up with Walmart to sell their toys, as it was the most preferred shopping venue for the customers.
