Juvenile Products - Coverage Report Q1 2019

Published on: 01/28/2019

The Juvenile Products industry experienced strong revenue growth in 2018, driven by the 7.5% year-over-year increase in real disposable income (US Census Bureau), which fueled robust consumer confidence and spending last year. Additionally, personal consumption expenditures increased 2.8% YOY in November, propelling strong holiday season sales figures. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ robust December jobs report indicated unabated economic momentum heading into 2019. During December, the US beat estimates and added 312,000 jobs to the economy, with average hourly wages rising 3.2%. Continued strength of macroeconomic indicators are expected to support consumer confidence and spending in 2019.
