Question

What is the size of the US online market for baby products?
What is the size of the UK online market for baby products?

Any breakouts/segmentation would be most helpful (e.g. diapers, food, toys).

Hi montecristo,

Please have a look at these links and let me know if this is the kind of information you're looking for. Some -- if not all of them -- may need a fee:

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Hello, thank you for answering.

1. I don't want to pay for the sources.
2. Although I did not specify the data, for online market sizing 2006 is very old and 2001 is almost irrelevant. I would need 2008/2009 or forecast data.

Thank you.

Hi montecristo,

Thanks for the input. I can't handle this question right now, so I've opened it for the other researchers.

Regards,

Guillermo

Hello montecristo,

For detailed information I think would have to buy a full market report which can run into tousands of US dollars.  For example:
"Baby Products Market Research"
http://www.the-infoshop.com/topics/CS34_en.shtml?rel=cs34

As you said you didn't want to buy a report, and after an extensive search, below is what I could find.

USA
"Forrester Research projects that U.S. online retail sales of baby products will reach $1.9 billion in 2007 and grow to $2.3 billion in
2008."
http://www.sugarinc.com/2390662

===========

Source for the above:

Projected Online Retail Sales, 2006 to 2011 (Statistical Abstract 2008
Table 1021)

               2006  2007  2008 2009  2010   2011
Baby products   1.6   1.9  2.3   2.6   2.8   3.1   (Billions US$)
http://infochimps.org/dataset/statab2008_1021_ProjectedOnlineRetailSales2006To201

==========================================================================

The UK article below seems to suggest that (in one case) an online baby care 'store' has grown 30% more than the traditional bricks and mortar store, since 2003.

UK
May 22, 2009
"Olivers Babycare, online baby products retailer"
"According to the Mintel report, the UK baby and nursery market grew by 20% between 2003 and 2008, and was worth £639 million last year. (2008) The report predicts that this growth will continue, despite the recession, reaching an estimated £753 million by 2013. The boom in sales of baby products has been reflected at Olivers Babycare which has seen a 50% increase in sales since 2003."

Does this meet your requirements?

All the best

Definitely tells me the size of the US market.

Not the UK market though - I think that story relates to offline.

Yes, without doubt the article refers to offline (ie. bricks and mortar)  I included it because it mentions:
"The boom in sales of baby products has been reflected at Olivers Babycare" (an online store) "which has seen a 50% increase in sales since 2003."

All the best
