Summary
The childrenswear market is the weakest out of all clothing sectors and is only expected to grow 10.4% in the next five years, the same rate of growth achieved between 2011 and 2016. The overall clothing sector is expected to struggle as the weakening pound puts added pressure on prices and margins, but childrenswear will be especially exposed to this as parents prioritise price and value more so than in other clothing sectors, limiting retailers' ability to raise prices.

Key Findings
Higher inflation is set to return to the childrenswear sector, putting retailers under pressure to absorb higher cost prices or take a hit on margins. The importance of quality remains crucial in the purchasing decision, so retailers must not compromise on design to offset costs.
The demise of BHS has left its £108m childrenswear business up for grabs. Primark and the grocers will take the lions share, while New Look, H&M, Matalan and River Island will fight for former Tammy customers.
With specific tween/teen ranges limited, there are opportunities to target this age group, particularly given the recent demise of BHS' Tammy brand. Trend-led retailers should introduce specific targeted ranges for 10-15 year olds, ensuring ranges are relevant and age appropriate.
