SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In today’s digital-intensive world, young children represent a key target demographic for digital consumer electronic (CE) devices, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). Traditional CE and semiconductor companies are in a strong position to benefit from the emerging edutainment toy segment; this is because the technology they offer for mainstream portable CE products is the same technology that will be a key driver for continued growth in the edutainment toy market, the high-tech market research firm says.
“Digital technology is now the norm for today’s child, and they are extremely comfortable using CE products,” says Stephanie Ethier, In-Stat analyst. “Drivers for the edutainment market include lower technology costs, increased shelf space within mass-market retailers, an increased number of connected portable edutainment toys, and a growing parental demand for educational value in their children’s toys.”
