Global Infant Formula Market, By Type(Fat, Protein, Minerals, Vitamins, Infant Milk, Carbohydrate, B

Published Date: | Report Code : FA1958483


Infant Formula is designed and marketed for feeding to babies under the age of 12months. It can be in the form of powder & liquid (by mixing with or without additional water). The infant formula consists of various nutrients, such as fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and others. Infant formula is fed to babies for their overall development. Infant formula can be used as an alternative, as it consists of similar nutrient contents, as physicians have recommended exclusive breastfeeding for under six months babies. As soon as working mothers join their jobs quickly post-delivery, they find the infant formula very convenient as it can be prepared in lesser time and comprises all the essential nutrients required for the growth of the baby. Increasing working women population is the key factor that drives the market. 

Segment Analysis

The global infant formula market is segmented on the basis of product type & distribution channel.  

It is available in pouch form, tubes or glass form. Pouch form is increasing significantly as compared to the traditional packaging forms such as in tubs or glass. Pouches with plastic spouts at the top provide sipping ease. The popularity of pouches among the consumers is increasing day by day in view of their ease of use and the handling flexibility on offer. These pouches are very convenient for the baby who can thus independently self-feed themselves. They act as an attractive proposition for customers who are looking for an innovative and convenient infant nutrition product.

The rise in changing lifestyle, rise in middle-class population, and increasing disposable income of the consumer is the major key factor for driving the market demand. Increasing awareness about infant formula & high nutritional content in the infant formula propels the market growth. However, concerns related to food safety and a decline in global birth rate may hamper the market growth.
