Capstone Partners Reports: Juvenile products & toys M&A poised for continued strength in 2022

Capstone Partners has released its Juvenile Products & Toys Sector Update, reporting that pandemic purchasing habits by households have supercharged growth in the Juvenile Products & Toys sector, and the elevated spending levels across Toys, Games, and Durable Goods categories are expected to continue through 2022.

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the sector approached record levels in 2021 with 36 transactions announced or completed, approximately a 57% increase year-over-year (YOY). The prospects of a capital gains tax increase fueled a significant portion of initial transaction inventory in the first half of the year as business owners sought to maximize take-home earnings.
