To state the obvious, many types of products are selling well over the Internet. It maysurprise some observers that consumer packaged goods (CPG), inclusive of babycaresupplies, but not limited to them, are increasingly purchased direct, via Internetwebsites, in particular, but also via mail-order catalogs, mobile, etc. One’s immediatereaction might be that that practice is extravagant, given that CPG is available at localmass-retail outlets, from malls to supermarkets, from specialty boutiques to the cornerconvenience store. Also, e-tailers offer discounts, though rarely deep ones. But in anage of traffic jams, crowded stores, and high prices at the gas pump, the delivery oflarge cartons of disposable diapers, or of quantities of any babycare product, can savelots of money, time, and effort. E-tailers, for example, routinely offer special discounts,though not deep ones; and for orders exceeding specified dollar amounts - $50, $100...- shipping is often free.Shopping from home translates into more time for family life, or for recreation.Brandweek (issue of May 12, 2010) has presented AC Nielsen data that peg U.S.consumers’ total online spending at $340.0 billion in 2010, a sum the firm projects willjump 40% to $475.0 billion in 2012. Online purchases of CPG will start the same twoyears at $12.0 billion, and push upward by 33%, to $16.0 billion. The CPG share of alle-tail dollars will therefore be roughly maintained at less than 4% during 2010-2012.The fact that mothers may be turning more and more to direct sales media for babycaresupplies and other CPG, is highly positive, because careful shoppers may save moneyfor impulse add-ons on behalf of Baby - a toy, perhaps, or a new bottle, a fresh pack ofpacifiers, an organic baby shampoo, or whatever - to complement those huge cartons ofdisposable diapers. In addition, the overall babycare supplies market will benefit fromthe fact that even e-discounted items will likely bring in higher price-points than thesame deep-discounted ones at Wal-Mart or other mass retailers. U.S. Market for Babycare Supplies Forecast to Increase More than $1 Billion by 2015, finds latest Packaged Facts reportNew York, June 29, 2010 — The $7 billion retail market for babycare supplies in theUnited States will continue its strong annual growth with an increase of 20% predictedbetween 2009-2015, according to Babycare Supplies in the U.S.: Diapers, Bottles,Wipes and Feeding Accessories, 5th Edition by market research publisher PackagedFacts. The growth translates to gains exceeding $1 billion as the market approaches $9billion by the end of the forecast period and surpasses the comparatively solid $577million increase achieved from 2005-2009.“There are several million households with children under the age of two and the growthwe anticipate for babycare supplies can be considered fair-to-good. However, what’struly exciting is the large dollar base, which ensures that even slight progress translatesinto substantial dollar levels,” says Don Montuori, publisher of Packaged Facts. “Forexample, in 2010 a single percentage-point of increase could equal $71 million.”
The report breaks sales figures into six product categories. In descending order of retaildollar size, they are: disposable diapers/training pants, baby wipes/moist towelettes,baby bodycare products, nursing/feeding accessories, play & discovery (infant) toys,and pacifiers/teethers (a.k.a., soothing accessories). The best-performing categoriesduring 2005-2009 were baby wipes/moist towelettes, baby bodycare products, andnursing/feeding accessories. Each achieved retail dollar growth totaling around 20%during the four-year period. The disposable diapers category was sluggish, advancingonly 4% over that same four years. Meanwhile the volatile play and discovery toyscategory, which experienced double-digit ups and downs, had a net increase of just1%. Pacifiers/teethers, the smallest category, lost 3% of its retail dollars over the span.Unsurprisingly, many consumers turned to the value-tier of babycare supplies brands—as well as to private labels—during the recent recession. Packaged Facts anticipatesthat some consumers will stick with these lower-cost alternatives even as the economyimproves. Nevertheless, as Packaged Facts predicted in the previous edition, the salesof luxury goods hit hard by the recession appear to be regaining ground as of June2010. Improved disposable income will especially drive sales in the wipes/moisttowelettes, baby bodycare, feeding accessories, and play & discovery toys categoriesas consumers once again satisfy their desires for premium and even prestige-pricedbabycare supplies. Purchases of natural, organic, and green products are alsoexpected to continue propelling the market substantially.Beyond traditional retail stores, the expansion of the online channel has immenseimplications for the babycare supplies market, as evidence by the performance ofcompanies such as Quidsi, Inc./Diapers.com, which Packaged Facts estimates will haveat least $100 million in sales during 2010. Meanwhile, the relative maturity of thebabycare supplies market creates such an intense competitive climate for marketersthat those that can afford to target foreign territories are setting up or expandingoperations outside the U.S. For marketers with enough ingenuity and willingness toadapt their products to smaller, less expensive pack sizes, developing countries such asBRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) are fertile ground, according to Packaged Facts.Babycare Supplies in the U.S.: Diapers, Bottles, Wipes and Feeding Accessories,5th Edition is the latest market study in a popular series written by renowned PackagedFacts analyst Timothy Dowd. The report examines the consumer marketplace forproducts intended to facilitate the care, feeding, and mental development of the littlestAmericans.
