Children aged between 0 and 14 years account for a quarter of the world’s population. The Children’s Apparel segment also generates higher sales volumes than the Men’s Apparel segment. In terms of sales, however, the segment ranks third, behind the Women’s and Men’s Apparel segments. When it comes to purchasing clothing for their children, there are several criteria which parents take into consideration, including the quality, material, and durability. These criteria are expected to continue to be crucial.
