Baby Boom: good prospects for the sector

According to the German Federal Statistical Office (“Statistisches Bundesamt”), the birth rate has risen by 4.8 percent in 2014. At the same time more and more parents are willing to invest more money in their offspring: in 2014 parents spent around 1,058 euros per child in the first three years of their life, these are 3 percent more than the same period in 2013. Particularly manufacturers of strollers and child seats can benefit from that – since 2011 the sector is pleased with uninterrupted growth.

Children’s furniture: the trend is upwards

Parents’ readiness to spend also provides the furniture industry with rising sales figures. In addition, design is playing an increasingly important role. Reasons are, amongst others, that today’s generation of parents is older, thus financially stronger and simultaneously more design-oriented. On average, parents buy four new installations per child, before their children leave the parental home This leads us to another trend: Increasingly furniture are in vogue that have a clear, aesthetic design, grow functionally with the children, and also cut a good figure in other rooms than in the nursery. Apart from design, safety continues to play the most important role in the purchasing decision.
