COVID 19 Impact

The COVID 19 pandemic affected all sectors of the global market as a whole. In terms of impact, the global Market was also a part of the economic slowdown and disruption caused by the pandemic. Firstly, lockdown restrictions brought down the curtains on the entire toys manufacturing sector, which caused a shortage of supply for the Market. Moreover, as incomes declined in the pandemic phase, people were less willing to spend on toys and games for their kids. Thus, the Toys Market saw a decline in supply, demand, and revenue in the initial phase of the pandemic. However, it recovered in the subsequent phase.

One of the primary factors behind Toys Market's revival and growth in the later pandemic and post-pandemic phase is realizing that kids can no more go to school and preschools. As kids and babies stayed at home for a couple of years, without the option of going to daycare, parents had to buy toys and games to keep them occupied inside homes. Moreover, parents of kids in the learning stage bought such toys that aided in learning and development and online learning. Thus, the sale of toys revived and went up in later pandemic waves. This Market Trend will continue for the next few years too.
