Report Overview

The global kids furniture market size was valued at USD 29.4 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.48% from 2019 to 2025. Rising spending on nursery rooms, playroom, and study room décor is expected to drive the growth. Parents prefer incorporating clothes, books, toys, and other products in one place for convenience and decluttering. This factor is projected to drive the demand for multifunctional furniture. Rising real estate prices are expected to impact the sizes of houses and children’s rooms, which is projected to create growth opportunities for companies offering compact, easy-to-move, and assemblable furniture for kids’ rooms.

U.S. kids furniture Market size

Rising preference for furniture with durable material, multifunctionality, and bright colors is expected to create growth opportunities for market players. The rising popularity of theme-based interior décor is anticipated to fuel the demand for furniture suitable for such themes. For instance, if consumers choose a space, sea world, forest, library, or such other themes, they look for furniture with colors and shapes suitable for those themes.

Rising inclination toward 3D printed furniture is expected to remain a key trend in the market. Consumers looking for customized furniture better suited for their individual décor needs find the perfect solution in 3D printing. This type of material is built quicker than the conventional techniques as the technology is capable of concretizing even the most complex of designs in little time. This efficiency also stops the wastage of raw material and thus, reduces the overall cost.

Organizations have been emphasizing on improving the design and easy assembly of parts to build the furniture. IKEA, a major furniture manufacturer, has been continuously creating furniture which is easy to assemble. They make sure to keep their number of pieces as low as 10. The simple design promotes easy self-assembly of the products. Another popular innovation is the addition of the feature of smart temperature regulation. Kids are extremely sensitive to temperature, and discomfort related to this can interrupt their sleep. The smart temperature sensors offer auto warming or cooling of the cribs and beds to establish suitable temperatures.

Product Insights

Beds, cots, and cribs held the largest market share of more than 40% in 2018. These are the most common furniture articles for kids’ rooms. These factors are projected to drive the growth of the segment in the forthcoming years. Deployment of bunk beds in residential schools, especially metal bunk beds, is expected to create growth opportunities for the market players. These products are also available in the form of twin beds. Hospitals also use advanced wood and metallic cribs for newborn babies, which is projected to positively influence the growth of the children's furniture market.

The cabinets, dressers, and chests segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 5.4% from 2019 to 2025. Deployment of cabinets, chests, and drawers in kids’ rooms to inculcate organization skills in kids is expected to drive the product demand in the forthcoming years. These products help categorize clothes, books, and toys and are easily adjusted in floors as well as walls. Availability of multifunctional storage stools, activity tables, loft beds with drawers, and such other products is expected to drive the product sales in this segment in near future.

Application Insights

Household applications accounted for a market share of more than 60% in 2018. The dominance is attributed to a growing trend of procuring a complete set of kids’ room furniture including bed, cabinet, table, and chairs. Buying products in sets saves costs and also helps consumers match the appropriate décor. Additionally, the trend of creating a separate space for kids, to help in better growth and enjoyment, is also propelling the growth of the segment.

Commercial application is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 4.7% from 2019 to 2025. The growing number of schools, daycare centers, and boarding schools is leading to the increasing requirements for these products in the commercial sector. The increase in child care or daycare centers is expected to positively influence the product demand as these centers focus on creating a comfortable and familiar environment for the kids.

Raw Material Insights

Wood furniture exceeded a market share of 60% in 2018. Kids’ wood furniture is available in hardwood and softwood varieties. Hardwood articles are comparatively expensive and are sourced from maple, oak, ash, birch, cherry, beech, teak, rosewood, mahogany, and walnut trees. These products are durable in nature and require low maintenance. On the other hand, softwood furniture is sourced from pine, spruce, fir, larch, hemlock, cedar, juniper, redwood, and yew. They have the ability to absorb adhesive, with better finishing and lightweight.

Global kids furniture Market share

The polymer segment is expected to be the fastest-growing market segment with a CAGR of 5.1% from 2019 to 2025, owing to the inexpensiveness of the product. Polymers are durable in nature and can tolerate rough usage. Furthermore, it is easy to maintain and clean, which makes it suitable for kids’ rooms. Plastic has been known for its hazardous effects and thus research regarding the kind of polymer to be used for safe furniture for kids is prevalent in the market. For instance, polyethylene is recommended over polypropylene, as the former is a thermoplastic and thus, can be easily remolded.

Regional Insights

Europe held the largest market share of 40% in 2018. The region is expected to remain a stronghold of children's furniture market players, especially in countries such as Germany, the U.K., France, and Italy, who maintained their market presence in offline and online segments on a domestic level.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 5.4% from 2019 to 2025. Japan, China, India, and Australia are some of the major consumers in the region. Growing demand for English and American styled kids furniture in Far East countries, including Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines, are expected to drive regional growth. Furthermore, the significantly high birth rate in the region is expected to fuel the regional product demand. The increasingly employed population in countries including China, India, Bangladesh, South Korea, Maldives, and Indonesia has contributed to the improved socio-economic status of the consumers. This factor is anticipated to drive the product demand in near future.
