This influx is bound to provide Indian manufacturerswith insights into the latest trends and technology, according to industry observers. Significantly, the event is well-supported by key associations such as Licensing Industry Merchandisers Association (LIMA),  Indian Importers Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IICCI) and All India Association (AIAI).

In its quest to deliver unique and innovative value propositions to exhibitors and visitors alike, this year, CBME India 2018 comprised a number of salient features including power – packed knowledge sessions, seminars, discussion of new trends and various international pavilions to surge into the rapidly expanding and diverse retail sector in India. 

Day 1 presented the Fashion N kids Concalve 2018 with the subject of Revolution in Kids wear & Market trends; Role of fibre type in kids wear; Challenges in Sourcing/Manufacturing/Marketing or Branding for kids wear; Organic clothing- Future for Kids wear Market; User friendliness in Digital Networking in Retail segment and Advanced Finishes for kids wear. A  panel discussion on the Future of Kids wear in India in line with Global trends will conclude the proceedings.

 

Day 2 will include an exciting session on ‘Leveraging License to Grow Your Market’. The discussions will veer around the lucrative licensing and merchandising industry by covering  top trends in licensing in the kids category, how brand owners and manufacturers can benefit from adding it to their portfolio, supported by the growth in Indian retail and, and upcoming opportunities in new licensing genres.

 

Speaking at the inauguration of CBME India 2017, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said“The global baby and maternity products market is expected to reach USD 121.0 billion by 2025, according to industry research. Formerly considered a niche market, the domestic baby, maternity and childcare products market in India has a broader mind share as well as a tremendous potential to grow. Yet, we observe a paucity of information and availability of novel products in this segment. It is here that unique initiatives like CBME India play a very important part to provide information and education as well as the inspiration to raise the bar for the children and maternity market.

 

He added, The top trends informing this sector, as seen in the expo, are an increase in functional, ergonomic and eco-friendly designs, more co-branded products, such as those leveraging characters from children’s favourite TV show, and a greater attention to safety with the development of new safety related products.”

 

According to Jiggy George, Head of LIMA, India, “It is exciting times for Licensing in India with the industry at a tipping point. The growth in scale and scope of licensing in the last few years is a sign of its growing significance. Small and Medium Enterprises, especially in the kids category, have a lot of opportunity to leverage licensing and we at LIMA India are excited to see their greater participation. Coupled with the growth of the economy, retail and E-commerce, licensing as a industry is definitely on a roll.”

While the child care sector in India is still at a nascent stage, it is one with immense potential due to an ever growing population. The sector is poised to develop significantly at a CAGR of around 17 percent in terms of revenue. In terms of products, although highly fragmented, it is increasingly getting dominated by organised players due to the ethical nature of infant and child care, which includes sub-categories such as nutrition, well-being, intellectual stimulation, tender skin and hair care.
