Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2g4t8d/childrens) has announced the addition of the "Childrens' Furniture and Textiles Market Report - UK 2013-2017 Analysis" report to their offering.
The UK domestic children's furniture and household textiles market was static in 2011 followed by a modest increase of around 2% in 2012, although volume sales have increased in recent years, supported by the substitution of high value home produced products with lower value imported products in the lower to medium priced market sector.
Currently beds and mattresses account for 75% of the total market, compared with furniture at 13% and household textiles with a 12% share.
It is estimated that children's and teenagers' beds and mattresses account for around 16% of the total beds market in 2012, with a value of around £95m in that year. Within the children's and teenagers' beds and mattresses sector, bunk beds and associated products, such as mid and high sleepers, account for 37% of the market, cots and nursery beds for 33% and beds or bedsteads for a further 30%.
Retail specialists account for 28% of this sector, compared with the 18% share held by mail order and catalogue retailers. Important retailers of children's furniture include Argos Ltd, Mothercare plc, Bensons for Beds, Mamas & Papas (Retail) Ltd, Shop Direct Ltd, Tesco Direct, The John Lewis Partnership, together with an increasing number of online children's furniture suppliers.
Department stores account for 33% of the distribution of children's household textiles, compared with the 16% share held by retail specialists and 14% held by mail order/catalogue retailers.
The total market for children's furniture and household textiles is estimated to have reached £126m in 2012, an increase of 2% on the preceding year, but is forecast to show more positive annual growth to 2017, to reach a level of £146m by the end of the period.
