Market analysis of toys and games

Technavio€™s market research analyst predicts the global toys and games market to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. The rise in disposable income and the growth of online sales are the primary drivers of the growth of this market. Many international and local vendors sell toys and games through e-retailing that helps in promotion of their brands. The prices offered to a customer are often lower online due to the reduction in overhead costs. For instance, during 2012, the online sales of toys and games accounted for 13% of the total online retail sales in North America.

The rising demand for eco-friendly toys is also expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Eco-friendly toys are made from the materials like wood, cardboard, and organic cotton. For instance, Green Toys make their products from recyclable plastic milk bottles. The company also tied up with Walmart to sell their toys, as it was the most preferred shopping venue for the customers.
