Development characteristics of China's children's clothing market
1. Children's clothing brand products are mostly concentrated in middle-aged children (4-12 years old) and infants (0-3 years old), and teenagers' clothing (12-16 years old) is not much involved. In the past two years, enterprises have paid more and more attention to Xiangying An extension of toddler and teen clothing. But as far as youth clothing is concerned, the foreign brand Adidas is doing better, and other domestic brands are rarely involved.
2, the price is concentrated in the high-end. Chinese brand children's clothing gives the impression that the price is generally expensive, similar to the price of adult clothing. The main reason is that the design, workmanship, and fabrics of the current brand children's clothing are similar to those of adult clothing, but the cost of fabrics is reduced a little.
3. Domestic and foreign brands each account for 50% of the market share, 30% of domestic products are branded, and 70% are unbranded. On the whole, there is no big brand as eye-catching as sportswear and menswear.
4. The sales channels are mainly department stores, specialty stores, main stores, boutique stores, and supermarkets. More than 90% of the brands choose to settle in shopping malls and specialty stores.

5. In terms of design, children's clothing needs to highlight the trend of the times and integrate children's aesthetic needs. Strong personality and self-centeredness have become the main characteristics of children. Therefore, positioning children's clothing brands with different personalities and subdividing the market is also an idea to build children's clothing brands.
6. With Adidas, Nike, GAP and other international brands entering the Chinese children's clothing market, domestic children's clothing enterprises will also face a new round of competition from foreign countries with mature market operation experience and strong resource support. This kind of competition is not only in the current price or production capacity, but also in the overall competition of the brand. Domestic children's clothing brands have also recognized this.
