Newly released market study: Traditional Toys and Games in Germany

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Nov 16 2015

Traditional toys and games continued to post a strong positive performance in 2014, amidst stronger consumer confidence in spending. Following the steep decline in the global price of crude oil which began in June 2014, German consumers experienced a significant increase in their disposable incomes. Combined with high employment and low interest rates, domestic demand continued to grow. According to trade sources, this had a particularly positive effect on sales of toys and games during the fourth quarter, as parents and grandparents showed greater generosity when choosing Christmas presents.

Competitive Landscape

Sales of traditional toys and games continued to be led by Lego in 2014, which ranked as the leading player across the entire review period. Lego branded construction toys enjoy very high levels of consumer awareness in Germany, and are popular for their educational value. The player experienced significant turnover growth in 2014, and experienced the biggest increase in value share as a result of large-scale marketing activities that encompassed several licences, including the popular Star Wars and the release of the Lego film, which was highly successful.
