Market Report Description

The Global Construction Toys Market size is expected to reach $18.1 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Manufacturers of construction toys promote plastics as being fully safe for children because of their low degree of toxicity and water resistance. Toys with PVC, plasticizers, and Bisphenol A, which includes adipates and phthalates as ingredients, should not be given to children since they may have detrimental effects on their health and stunt their development. The use of these materials in toys has been outlawed in numerous nations, including Germany, Sweden, and India. Toy producers are being compelled to avoid the aforementioned plastic materials due to growing awareness among parents and educational authorities.

The market is anticipated to expand more quickly as the advantages of construction toys for children's cognitive development become more widely acknowledged. The demand from educational systems is expected to be driven by the goods' ability to help youngsters develop their spatial reasoning. For instance, early education classes feature toys made of bricks and blocks. These activities for kindergarteners are intended to promote holistic development by encouraging children's imagination and inventiveness.

Construction toys have repeatedly been highlighted as having a positive impact on children's cognitive flexibility in recent research studies on child psychology and cognitive development. These games encourage creative problem-solving. Children are challenged to come up with original solutions while assembling parts to recreate a specific structure, which is essential for their cognitive development. Additionally, playing these games might enhance cooperation, social skills, and teamwork abilities.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The economy was severely impacted by the coronavirus outbreak that spread across the world. Lockdowns have been ordered in many nations around the world in an effort to stop the chain and spread of the coronavirus. The supply chains, avenues of distribution, trade, and growth of the building toy business were all severely harmed by this. Additionally, since the COVID-19 pandemic, the selling of toys on various e-commerce websites has increased, which could increase the need for additional building toys over the projection period.

Market Growth Factors:

Parents Are Paying More Attention to Children's Overall Development

Children are becoming addicted to TVs, computers, and mobile phones, so parents are seeking ways to get them involved in new physical activities. With the aid of construction toys, kids may exercise their bodies and minds while also developing their inventiveness and social abilities. Building blocks, model construction vehicles, and city-building toys are just a few of the cutting-edge construction toys that vendors are offering to children.

The Growing Use of Social Media Expands the Market Growth

Companies are concentrating on forming alliances with various marketing firms and well-known social media influencers for creating content for youngsters in order to promote a strong brand image. This aids them in increasing their gaming-related earnings. Additionally, the rising demand for toys in several colors among preschoolers is projected to drive market expansion.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Availability of Alternative Products

The introduction and spread of e-commerce helped to increase the sales of counterfeit items by expanding their geographic reach. Additionally, these items cause market fragmentation, a lack of price uniformity, a decline in the margins of branded competitors, a decline in the brand value of significant competitors, an unfavorable competitive environment, and the loss of market share. Disney toys and Mattel toys are two of the most often imitated brands on the market.
