Kids’ Licensed Personal Care Product Sales Plummet

August 6, 2008

Licensed characters have usually helped sell kids’ products. But in 2007, the market for licensed kids’ personal care products fell a dramatic 39% to $291 million, according to new data from Packaged Facts.

With a sluggish economy ahead, the marketplace will need superhero strength to rebound. After all, when high gas prices have Mom and Dad buying generic products, a higher-priced shampoo with Nemo or Batman on the bottle is a tough sell, no matter how much Junior begs.

The Rockville, MD-based company’s Licensed Kids Personal Care Products Market report covers many aspects of the market from oral care to hair care, and looks at the opportunities for licensors and licensees.
