The Smart Toy Awards 2022 Outcomes Report

The global Smart Toys market is expected to be valued at over USD $31 billion by 2027 and up to USD $69.6 billion by 2032, depending on estimates by research sources (Precision Reports, 2023; Global Insight Services, 2023; Polaris Market Research, 2023). This equates to an annual rate of approximately 14.6-19.5% CAGR on current market size. This rapidly outweighs the expected 6.52% CAGR for the whole toy and game sector 2023 through 2027 (Statistica Market Insights, 2022). Advancements in technological capability, especially in Artificial Intelligence (AI), are a significant factor in this growth.
