    Smile Number of car seats sold & statistics

    Hi everybody,

    I searched the threads to no avail, and I hope this thread is not to offtopic.
    Does anybody have any sources or statistics themselves on how many child car seats are sold/ year?
    I e-mailed some big brand/manufacturers but they haven't answered.

    Thanks!

    I've been searching for this info for about 1 hour now. how difficult it was to find...Hope it helps you.

    "with 4 million babies born in the U.S. annually, and each requiring three child restraint seats before age eight, Americans buy as many as 12 million seats a year".

    I added the link to my facebook page. I have lots of friends with kids. Hope the goverment will step up. My daughter has the new Britax Frontier 85 car seat good for ten years. It is the nicest seat I own. Hope they come up with a way to recycle car seats soon. Thank You for sharing this important news.
