Outlook of the online baby products retailing market
The global online baby products retailing market is expected to multiply significantly and register a CAGR of close to 17% during the forecast period. Shopping online for baby products eliminates the need to visit physical stores, thus providing customers the freedom to purchase products from a wide variety of brands, without the constraint of time and location. One of the major factors driving the growth of this market is the availability of easy payment options such as cash on delivery (COD), credit and debit cards, and Internet banking accounts.
The booming demand for omnichannel retailing is another fast-moving trend that is assisting the growth of the online baby products retailing market. This form of retailing offer consumers an option to order products online and get it delivered through brick-and-mortar stores on the same day at their convenience. For instance, Argos and eBay joined forces in 2014 for omnichannel retailing, which allows consumers to purchase products on eBay and collect them in Argos stores. Thus, the growing trend of omnichannel retailing is set to influence the positive growth of the market over the next five years.
