Growth Drivers

The flourishing scope in paper engineering is emerging as a major driving factor for the global paper toys market growth.

Experts claim that the addictive use of smartphones is directly affecting the interpersonal and intrapersonal skills among growing children, besides creating potential physical and mental health risks. Thus, they suggest replacing electronic toys with paper toys, which are becoming recognized as a more effective means of improving children’s creativity, imagination, and social and emotional skills. Moreover, paper toys are an effective way of helping children develop and improve their language skills. These factors are expected to boost the demand for paper toys in the coming years.

Restraints

Tough Competition with Plastic Toys and Technology

Plastic and other technology-driven toys have a higher penetration among young consumers because of the availability of a wide range of products and attractive packaging at cost-effective prices. This acts as a major threat to the global paper toys market growth. The popularity of video games and the increasing penetration of smartphones among the target demographic are unmatched. Therefore, the paper toy manufacturers have to put huge and consistent efforts into improving their distribution channels and marketing strategies if they want to overcome the hindrance posed by the plastic toy industry.

However, the market is estimated to flourish in the post-COVID-19 period because of the growing awareness regarding the negative side effects of technologies like smartphones on young minds. The addiction of smartphones among young children also emerged as a leading issue during the quarantine period. Therefore, child experts are suggesting that parents get paper toys for their children to cut their ties with digitization and to develop their social and emotional skills.
