Snapdeal Sees 493% Rise In Kids Apparel Category In Jan-July


Since the beginning of the pandemic last year, kidswear in general saw huge growth online as parents tried to keep children away from crowded markets and malls

Snapdeal, which has pivoted as a value-focused e-commerce company, said the sales of kids’ apparel in terms of units sold has grown by 493% from January to July this year.

This makes the kids’ fashion category one of the biggest gainers amongst other categories on Snapdeal. The share of kids’ apparel in the overall fashion category sales has also increased in the same period.

There is also growing and active involvement of children in making their own choices online and parents completing the purchase for them. The older Gen-Z children closely follow social media influencer culture, assess peer purchases, shortlist choices and heavily determine the final purchase decisions for their apparel.

“Spending on children’s clothes is no longer limited to special occasions such as birthdays and festivals. Parents now buy kids apparel as per needs of season, size and also driven by extra discounts during sale offerings. Mimicking the fashion preferences for adults, the purchasing behaviour for kids apparel now leans towards more functional and comfortable choices, albeit with a high trendiness quotient. With increased frequency of online purchases for kids’ clothes, customers prefer value-priced merchandise including combo packs,” according to Snapdeal.

 With more kids’ fashion being bought online, shopping trends on Snapdeal indicated consumer preferences for deals that offered more value. The popular price points on Snapdeal include Rs 400-600 for combo pack offerings, followed by the second best-selling range of Rs 200-400 for individual items.
