Numerous varieties of toys and games, including licensed toys, are currently available and gaining popularity in the market. The popularity of TV shows for children, cartoons, and movies has created a number of TV, cartoon, and movie characters for children and the manufacture of toys and games based on these characters. For instance, the success of Hannah Montana and Spiderman increased the sales of the Hannah Montana and Spiderman toys and games product lines.
According to the report, the major driver is the presence of a large number of manufacturers/suppliers and buyers, which provides retailers/vendors with easy access to products. The presence of numerous buyers in the market means that products have to be constantly replaced, which allows vendors to make their products more easily available in stores.
Further, the report states that the negative impact of the economic recession has hindered the market's growth. The global economic slowdown has reduced the GDP growth in most countries, affecting the financial stability of consumers and reducing their disposable income.
